How Is The Situation Today Between Israelis And Palestinians The Result Of Past Events?

2577 words - 11 pages

The recent affair in Israel seems to be escalating everyday as the Israelis and Palestinians are clashing over the costs of past events and the conflict has been one of the most unstable and constant wars in modern world history. The Israeli military have continued to occupy Palestinian Territories and on a daily basis, inhabitants of those lands have been killed, injured or kidnapped. Despite recent major Israeli violence, Palestinians have created pacific marches and demonstrations in the West Bank and Gaza, to retaliate. There have been attempts by other nations such as neighbouring Arab nations, the USA, Britain and USSR, to solve the crisis, although, their intervention have seemed to ...view middle of the document...

The Jews had dominated Israel for one thousand years, until the Romans conquered the holy city, Jerusalem, and expelled the Jews which created a Jewish Diaspora across most of Europe and neighbouring countries of Israel. Since then, the Jews have experienced discrimination and violent elimination. Although, the Palestinians (Arabs) deem Palestine is their homeland because they have been inhabitants for many centuries and they created the predominant population of Palestine before the State of Israel was created. According to ProCon.org, the population of Palestine consisted of approximately 70% of the Palestinian Arab people and approximately 30% of the Jewish people, in 1941, seven years before the creation of the State of Israel. This source is reliable because it educates people without being bias and it is useful because it is a website created by researchers exploring controversial issues across the world. Also, the Arabs have a religious belief that Ismail was a Palestinian, the founder of Islam and the ancestor of the Arabs. Moreover, the Arabs battled for Palestine against the Ottoman Empire which ruled Palestine from 1517 to 1917. Ultimately, the Palestinians feel it is their duty to eradicate the Israelis from their land. These pre-historic events were the bases of the situation today between the Israelis and Palestinians; they contributed to the establishment of the State of Israel, the Palestinian expulsion, the Munich Massacre and the Hamas which all added to the current uproar in the Middle East, which are some the reasons for the situation today.
The establishment of the State of Israel is a crucial aspect of the situation today because a day after the declaration of the state on the 14th of May 1948, Arab troops from neighbouring countries invaded the nation to “liberate Palestine”, until the first cease-fire which was used by the Zionists in order to organise and train their newly established navy, Israeli Defence Forces, which had better organisation, aptitude and motivation. This tactical use of deception contributed to the Jews winning their War of Independence. According to the report of the UNSCOP in August 1947, the UN were going to help with the partition about investigating the situation in Palestine and to “submit such proposals as it may consider appropriate solution for the problem of Palestine,” but they wouldn’t interfere with other affairs in Palestine after that. This report is reliable because it was written by the UN and they stood by their word. Thereby, I believe this contributed to the Palestinian expulsion during the war of 1948-49, because there being no UN interference could have meant that the Israelis felt they had major authority to aggressively terrorise the Palestinians, as they were also under their control, so approximately 711,000 people fled or were expelled from the State of Israel, according to the UN. Revisionist historian, Ilan Pappé, published the book, ‘A History of Modern Palestine’ in...
