Can anyone summarize the conflict for me? I tried reading up about it, and it seems that unless I want to spend a few days trying to understand it all, I won't be able to.chrisrooR

A simplified version is that at one time in the holy land, Jews, Philistines, Muslims and others all lived in what became known as Palestine. Jews were (for lack of a better word) evicted from said lands.

Jews moved from place to place and never really had a home and were chased out of just about everywhere they have lived.

Fast forward a couple thousand years or so and the newly formed League of Nations gave Britian a mandate to run the area known as Palestine and France was given Lebenon and Syria.

While Germany and Hitler was gearing up for war and making hate speeches against the Jews as well as making them wear stars and forbiddening them from public office and marking their stores as Juden. Jews started to leave Germany and many went to the British Mandate of Palestine, but then, Britian started to disallow immigration to the area in fear of upsetting Arab neighbors (not to mention that there were many anti-Semites in England at that time).

During WWII, Germany had a program of extermination of the Jews either by outright shooting them, gassing them or working them to death, it all depended on which side of the Ribbentrop-Molotov Line they lived on or were sent to.

After WWII, many Jews left Europe and went to the British Mandate of Palestine. The UN decreed that the English were to leave Palestine and that the State of Israel was to be formed. On the day that Ben-Gurion declared an independent Israel on what was Palestine and Arab nations did not recognize the new nation and had moved forces into areas that had been part of the British Mandate for Palestine. Eight Arab nations and armies attacked the Israelis and were eventually defeated.

Over the years, Syria, Egypt and other Arab nations attacked Israel only to suffer defeat. This lead Israel to start to create buffers around the nation by occupying Arab areas like the West Bank, Gaza and the Siani Peninsula. Eventually, a peace accord was signed by Israel and Egypt and the Siani was returned to Egypt.

Other terrorist orginizations have made attacks on Israel while they have tried to live peacefully, yet as seen in this thread, there is lots more to the conflict in said area.

A Synopsis of the Israel/Palestine Conflict and Historical Timeline of Israel and History of Israel will give you an idea of what has transpired over the years. 1948 ArabIsraeli War details the fight for independence with the Arabs.

Dumb post is dumb.

It's not that simple, the anti-Israel crowd on here are just dumb kids that are trying to be "cool" by going against what they see as "The Man". If the US backed Palestine instead I can gurantee you that you would be supporting Israel instead.

If someone was firing a gun at your house from your back yard would you just stand by and allow you and your family to remain in danger? You call the cops, but what if they don't want to help you? You are on your own, surely you wouldn't just sit back and allow it to happen.

ShadowMoses900

Is it possible that you are so delerious that you truly believe people hate Israel and fire at it because they are "enemies of democracy", "terrorists", "militants"...etc I mean look at Israel and its actions in the past 60 years or so, can you see any other possible outcome?

I see Israel as a group of people who have been beaten down and put on the brink of extinction and have finally gotten a homeland of their own and are simply fighting for survival and democracy.

Sure Israel has done some things I disagree with like blocking aid ships, but I also disagree with my own country the US on things, and I disagree with the UK and Canada on things etc....but I know what countries are on the right side of history, and Israel is one of them. Israel has every right to exist whether you like it or not.

they actually attacked the aid boats and i think israel is an inhumane country. And they keep on relying on America to give them more goodies so they can just blow up more people. i dont why you could defend israel. I think you are extremely close minded.

Terrible that this has happened, but with all the rest of awful things going on in the world (ex, civil war in Syria hitting a death toll of over 30'000), it's hard to be moved by this. To be honest, it's hard to feel bad for the Palestinians plight as a whole when they keep provoking Israel. What is Israel supposed to do, only fight on Hamas's terms? If this were America or any other nation getting rockets shot at them, no one would be upset when they came down hard on the attacking nation.Poke a sleeping bear if you want, but don't act shocked when you get mauled.

Stolen land? Really?

When was the Palestinian state founded and by who?

What was its capital city?

Please specify the Palestinian state's main cities.

What was this state's major economic field?

Can you please give me a name of one Palestinian leader before Yaser Arafat
(who was declared as the Palestinian leader during the seventies)?

What was the common religion in the Palestinian state?

What was the Palestinian's state currency? Please specify its rate compared to USD

Since there is no Palestinian state today, please specify when this country was "stolen" ?.

All Middle Eastern nations apart from Israel are full of terrorists who attack innocent civilians. Israel is a beacon of freedom and justice which only attacks those who threaten said values. If they attack someone it's because that person is a terrorist. I don't know why anyone even listens to what the BBC says, everyone knows that they're run by Jew haters.

Palestine was under the Ottoman empire's sovereignty. Among main cities at that time was Acre, Jaffa, Jerusalem, Gaza, Jericho(oldest city ever), among others that may had different names in the past. Major economic activities included agriculture and trading. Trading was specifically important of the geographical location of Palestine between Asia, Africa and Europe. Islam was the common religion, followed by Christianity. The Palestinian pound was the currency. In 1948, the state of Israel was founded, taking much of Palestinian lands. In 1967, Israel significantly expanded and continued to expand in the West Bank to this day.

as far as I know though, Palestine not a singular province, it was divided among several others during the Ottoman era. I believe the administrative centre as far as it was concerned though was Ramle, not Jerusalem or Acre. and the Palestinian pound was a British creation , not an Ottoman one in fact I think the first time the modern idea of Palestine as Palestine (as seen by, lets say, the PLO or Hamas), was a British thing,, beforehand it was just a part of one province or another., ie, the Bilad Al Sham

Land , history, politics, religion. land is the main issue, but the other 3 latch on to it, and can be used to inflame opinions and gather support.

He answered your questions, which were obvisouly posited ina way as to illegitimize Palestine's right to that land. The entire state of Israel post WWII was an invention of the allies. If it wasn't for their intervention there wouldn't be an Israel in that aprt of the world and no hostilities between these two groups of people.

lol, I didn't ask any of those questions, don't blame me for nothing, use those 5 brain cells to think a bit. what I said though was true, Palestine, in its modern form , is relatively new, that doesn't mean there were no Arabs there, obviously there were since Islam conquered it some 1300 years ago. at the same time, if you were to go back 100 years ago and ask an Arab in Acre, or Jaffa how he identifies himself, he would not have called himself a Palestinian , he would have called himself an Arab, or a Muslim , or at most a member of a family/tribe/village. hell, even the Palestinian identity itself changed over time, originally it simply meant someone who lived in the British Mandate of Palestine, which originally included Jews , as well as Jordanians actually , its only later that it became a purely Arab identity.

This is an awful conflict and both sides are doing some terrible things. I really don't see how it can ever end. They've been going at it since 1948 and have completely irreconcilable goals.

jim_shorts
You want it to end? tell the US to stop throwing fuel into the fire. Multiple UN resolutions that would hold Israel accountable for its actions have been consistently shot down by the US with its veto power. Israel pretty much knows that they have free reign to abuse and kill Palestinians as they please. Its quite sad to be honest, the whole situation. Its like the abused child growing up to be abusive. Illegal settlements, non-discriminant bombings and killings, concentration camps...I mean giant walls that pretty much trap Palestinians in an area. Sure there is no mustard gas or any such thing, thats because Israeli's choose the humane way to kill people, bullets and bombings and starvation.

Define being their b!tch because U.S. funds lots of countries. Of all of the wasted money spent on foreign countries, Israel is the most warranted.
