Social Relations in the Middle East

Who is the enemy?

Who is the enemy?

The author of "Arab Spring and the Israeli Enemy" says "The real enemies of the Arab world are corruption, lack of good education, lack of good health care, lack of freedom, lack of respect for the human lives and finally, the Arab world had many dictators who used the Arab-Israeli conflict to suppress their own people. What if this is true and all the wars, all the death all the destruction is for nothing, will it end then, or will Arab turn on its self?



Why Fight?

The Arab-Israeli conflict has lasted for over 30 years, they have three major wars in 1973, 1948, and 1967, and many other small battles. What has lead for the battles to get to this point, religion, culture, ethnic differences, or territory? One of the main reason that these nations fight is over different religion but what does their religion say about fighting?

How has the conflict impacted family life

This half a century old conflict has impacted the lives of many families, with their being so many different beliefs the people in your own family has to have different sides, and opinions of the conflicts. The conflict has split families up because people from the same family have different opinions on the matter.
