No, blood elves are traitors and must die.
We're the traitors?! The Alliance didn't even so much as raise a finger to aid us after the Scourge destroyed the Sunwell! And once our forces joined up to assist the war effort against the Scourge how were we used? Like SLAVES! The best archers and mages in the Eastern Kingdoms, sent to repair towers and given the impossible task of holding three fronts by the "Grand Marshall". Then we were jailed and sentenced to death for accepting the only help offered to us; and none of your kind spoke out against it!
If you wish to see a traitor, you need look no further than Stormwind.
Well... Stormwind and the dwarves were dealing with their own problems while the Scourge were attacking Quel'thalas. Lordaeron was toast by then, and the night elves were far, far away. Grand Marshal Garithos was a jerk, true, but he and his racist men don't speak for the entire Alliance. In fact I think most of his men became the corrupted scarlet crusade after he died, though that's a bit cloudy.
Tyrande, Malfurion and Maiev helped Prince Kaelthas(When he was sane.) escape the undead and make it back across the river. We sacrificed kaldorei lives to escort your prince and his refuges back to safety. Tyrande herself even sacrificed herself to hold back the undead, but the bridge beneath her broke and she was swept down river. If I remember correctly, Kaelthas and the night elves were pretty chummy, as well as the dwarves and gnomes. I think the only race/faction to hate the high elves were Garithos' men, the undead, and of course, the Horde who had pillages/raped/burned high elven regions for years following the first opening of the dark portal.
The only reason they joined the Horde despite the fact that they've been fighting orcs and trolls for decades is because Kaelthas went insane and Blizzard destroyed lore to allow it to happen. Odd, I know.
Join the Alliance! We forgive you and know it was Kaelthas' fault for whatever demon stuff happened. *Hugs.*
