The absurd demonisation of Israel is counter-productive, at least if you assume that the purpose is to win support for the Palestinian position, as well as being morally offensive.

Quite a lot of their grievences are reasonable, but as long as criticising Israel means that you end up aligning yourself with deranged anti-semitic, pro-terrorist, anti-Western loons then their supporters are going to be concentrated on the extreme left of the political spectrum, people who are rightly reviled or ridiculed.

Well, I guess it's a (very mildly) positive sign that they're thought is, "look at those families crying and agonizing over the loss of their homes: lying Zionist propoganda!" rather than "look at those families crying and agonizing over the loss of their homes: woohoo! It's great to see them suffer!" It shows that they have to rationalize moral depravity through factual denial, rather than jumping straight to unabated moral depravity.
