I'm sure that posting this makes me a Likudnick shill...
I've had similar conversations, many times. It's equal parts disgusting and depressing how many lies, half-truths, and misrepresentations are passed about on the Left as received wisdom about Israel and Palestine.
Zombie tries to understand Queers for Palestine. The only reasonable(?) explanation I can think of is that this group is allied with the anti-capitalist anarchists. Maybe they think that once they take over the West, peace with (or a takeover of) the Islamic world will be easy.
It is not about Palestinians. It is about discrediting the right in America so that more left-leaning tribes can have power here.
Conservative politicians can also be found taking this cynical attitude, but it is wine-and-wafer on the left. Foreign events, and to a lesser extent, events in flyover country, are merely counters in the board game of Washington power. Therefore, we should not expect that any rules of principle or consistency need apply.
