    I'm not quite sure what your question is. Are you asking if it's fine to have your opinion? If so, then the answer is yes: You are always entitled to your opinion, and also millions of people hold the same one that you do. A lot of people believe having two states is really the only way to really settle the conflict, self included... however, what is given to who is still hotly contested. I'm also definitely in the "Israel is more right" camp too.

    Since both names "Israel" and "Palestine" are used by opposing claims to refer to the same region, the use of the Roman-imposed name "Palestine" (which has never been any indigenous sovereign state) is to negate the existence of Israel. Indeed the name "Palestine" is used by the "Palestinian" Arabs for that purpose who continue to deceive the world they seek a two-state solution when in reality they falsely-claim all the land.

    Consider that, and I believe you can attain a better understanding about your concern.

    The Ottoman Turkish empire did not use any such political name as “Palestine”, but rather Ottoman-occupied Judah / Israel was within the Ottoman province of “Syria:

    No wonder then, that Arabs typically make false-claims on the land of Israel; claims that are unverifiable. Not only is it likely that such Arabs mostly-originated from Syria (and other Arab countries), but in reality they still believe in the artificial Ottoman area of "Southern Syria" (that had included Israel) and which was in the Ottoman province of "Syria".

    League of Nations Mandates were granted to countries to assist indigenous peoples and so no wonder the Foreign-Arab-Migrant-Workers who had come to the British Mandate, suddenly became interested in falsely-claiming as they still do, that they are indigenous to the land.

    Following the Ottoman Turkish defeat in the First World War, the League of Nations in 1921 resurrected the name “Palestine” from Roman occupation, and authorized a British Mandate, whose inhabitants were known as:

    “Palestinian Jews” / “Palestinian Arabs”. 

    The “Palestinian Arabs” dropped the name “Arab” from their correct description because they do not want you to understand they mostly originate from Foreign-Arab-Migrant-Workers who came to the land of Israel just prior to, and during the British Mandate, to take advantage of higher wages through Jewish returnee-exiles:

    - - - - Start of extracts: - - - -

    “[...] the Zionist project was very attractive to Arabs who were drawn to Palestine by the good wages, healthcare and sanitation offered by the Jews. ... the Arab population of Palestine increased the most in cities where there were large numbers of Jews [...]

    [British] restrictions were placed on Jewish immigration in order to appease Arab troublemakers. However, the situation regarding Arab settlement was much more lax. [...]

    the Arab population of Palestine had been in a state of flux for centuries and that the overwhelming majority were migrants from the rest of the Arab world and/or the Ottoman empire. This is important because it tells us that the postmodern notion of a deep-rooted Palestinian Arab history/culture is bogus. [...]

    This explains why, historically, Arabs never talked about Palestinian identity - because there wasn’t one. They were Egyptian, Syrian, Moroccan, Iraqi and Ottoman Arabs, and many of them expressed allegiance to the concept of a Greater Syria.”

    Extracts source:

    “Arab Immigration to Historic Palestine: A Survey”, by Richard Mather:

    “[...] most Arabs in British Mandate Palestine were migrant workers and descendants of the 1832-1947 wave of Arab/Muslim immigration from Egypt, the Sudan, Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Yemen, Libya, North Africa, Bosnia, India, Afghanistan, etc. While the British Mandate encouraged Arab immigration, it blocked Jewish immigration.”

    “Not until the Zionists had arrived in numbers did the Arab population begin to augment itself. The introduction of European standards of wage and life acted like a magnet on the entire Near East. Abruptly, Palestine became an Arab center of attraction. By 1922, after a quarter century of Jewish colonization [Jewish returnee-exiles], their [Arab] numbers mushroomed to 488,000.”

    The “Palestinian” Arabs considering themselves Arab were opposed to being called a “people” until the 1960’s, when they decided it fitted with their intention to steal the land of Israel from its indigenous Jews:

    The Jewish People are indigenous to their ancestral homeland of Israel, with unbroken presence from Biblical times:

    Israel is Re-established within the Jewish ancestral homeland:

    I hope this helps.

    The Palestinians are an invention used as a means to oppose Israel.

    Therefore wanting a space for the Palestinians would be being against Israel.

    Don't be so naieve and ignorant of history.
