Israeli- Palestinian Conflict

By: Kaitlyn Ballard

Why did this conflict start?

At the end of World War 2, the United Nations gave the land of Israel to the Jewish people to be their homeland. After seeing the evidence of the Holocaust, the world was terrified of what happened to the Jews. The Jews and allies agreed that the land would be given to the Jews and then the middle east vowed that the Jews wouldn't be welcomed as neighbors.

Why has it continued?

The Israeli-Palestinian conflict refuses to be resolved because it is a conflict unprecedented in human history. There is no precedent for a nation that lost its sovereignty 2,000 years ago.

How should we resolve it?

In order to end the Israeli- Palestinian conflict we have to re draw the Israeli-Arab borders as they were before the Six-Day War of 1967; respect the right of Palestinian refugees to return to their original land; and decide on the future status of Jerusalem. If we did all this then Palestine would be an independent and sovereign state and their would be peace between them.
