Long lost cause

Whenever I read something palestine related my heart aches...I feel betrayal...I feel I betrayed palestine...I feel I betrayed myself!!
And whenever I read (re-read) Naji Al-Ali caricatures my eyes become very watery and this song begins to play in my head.
As I was in the middle of a re-reading session, I begin to wonder: does the generation Z happen to know anything about the palestinian cause? do they even know there is a palestine somewhere in the middle-east? do they know about naji el-ali? do they know about yahya ayyach? do they even know that isrel is the bad guy? that they haven't always been there? do they know about palestinian refugees? little do they know and little do we help them to know!!
I feel my heart aching...
Once I tried to pass the message to my little brother who is 16 now and boy was I shocked. He thought that palestine and Israel are in conflict over some border issues and that israel has always been there.
Now I wonder: what can we do to revive the cause?
What can we do to make all people know and care about what's going on in palestine?
I need ideas
What can we do?

    What people need to do in order to fully understand the Arab-Israeli conflict is simply learn more about it. The more you learn the more you understand about the people, the religions, factions involved, etc.

    One idea to make people care about Palestine and the horrendous events happening there is to appeal to human emotions such as respect for peace, love, etc. Common values, in other words.

    Hope this helps
