They’re easy to spot….On almost any forum or comments related to the Palestinian / Israeli issue you’ll find ’em. palestinians, palestine, arabs, arab, muslim, muSlime, islam.
Meanwhile other names, such a Israel, Israeli, Jews, Jewish, Judea or Samaria, are Upper case
No better are those who lower case jews and or israel while upper casing Palestine etc
A typo? Sticky keyboard? Spelling or grammatical error? An inadvertent mistake? It’s reasonable to question why they apply it only to one party.

I wish. When the response to a discussion of Israel / palestine is “where is Israel? Are the Jews the ones with the funny hats or are the Jews the muslims?” then the world is treating a tribal war between two tribes with six million people appropriately. Until then, yes they are still putting the Jews ahead of other people.
A mistake? There are no other mistakes…only to one party in the conflict
What kind of person purposefully belittles by lowercasing proper nouns relating only to one ‘tribe’? Racists? Bigots? Over and over, EVERY time they write “arab” or “palestinian”. Like Serial abusers.
Are they the kind of person you’d want supporting a state declared on behalf of all the world’s Jewish people?
How does it serve the interests of peace? How does it serve the interests of Israel or Palestine?
It doesn’t! They’re either sick or if it does exist simply evil!
Their deceitfulness is shown time and again as they side step, obfuscate and deliberately avoid answering honestly.

You mean produce stuff like:
You may not like the facts. But it was a Jewish country for centuries.
He completely avoids 100 years ago and produces a host of irrelevant material, none of which is from a 100 years ago and none of which is relative to Israel’s current legal sovereign extent or Israel’s non existent right to claim territories it has illegally acquired by war since having proclaimed its borders.
The JeffB’s of the world are deceitful bigots and full of sh*te.
