I'm going to say this once. It's not The Jews, The Americans, The Palestinians killing each another. 

It's humans killing humans. Period. 

It's the state of nature of men to wage wars because according to Hobbes in Leviathan, "So that in the nature of man we find three principal causes of quarrel. First, competition; secondly, diffidence; thirdly, glory.  
The first maketh man invade for gain; the second, for safety; and the third, for reputation. The first use violence, to make themselves masters of other men’s persons, wives, children, and cattle; the second, to defend them; the third, for trifles, as a word, a smile, a different opinion, and any other sign of undervalue, either direct in their persons or by reflection in their kindred, their friends, their nation, their profession, or their name."

And those studying History would know that since the first war in Mesopotamia, there's been wars in different parts of the world. 

There has never been a decade where, there weren't any wars. I still stand in my believe that waging wars in part of our DNA. 

In conclusion, wars did not happen because of race or religion, it happened because of human sins. So, boycotting, hashtags or sharing gruesome pictures won't help. You want to help? Pray. Simple as that.
