  • Proposed Jewish And Palestinian Arab States
    2,373 words
    The conflict between Palestinian Arabs and Jews is a modern phenomenon, which began around the turn of the 20th century. Although these two groups have different religions (Palestinians include Muslims, Christians and Druze), religious differences are not the cause of the conflict. It is essentially a struggle over land. Until 1948, the area that both groups claimed was known internationally as Palestine. But following the war of 1948-49, this land was divided into three parts: the state of Isra...

    PAST FAILURES OF THE PALESTINIAN LIBERATION ORGANIZATION In 1948 when the country of Israel was created, Palestinian Arabs lost control of all the lands which they possessed.

(Nassar. pg. 40) Currently headed by Yasser Arafat, the Palestinian Liberation...

    2,368 words
    The Israeli-Arab conflict, or as it is now known as the Israeli - Palestine conflict has existed for over 50 years, beginning with the declaration of the State of Israel in 1948. Although its origins are religious it is now essentially a struggle over land, which is occupied by the Israelis. The 1993 Oslo Accord was the first attempt to resolve the conflict, yet it has not produced peace and is seen as being highly flawed, with numerous issues remaining unsolved and their being "gaping loopholes...

    In today's society the television plays a major role in our lives. We sit down on the couch and are transfixed by what is taking place in Iraq and before this we all watched, with the same horror, as Palestinians and Israelis blew up each other's children.

  • America's Support Of Israel
    480 words
    Since the creation of Israel in 1948, the United States has supported it financially with over 80 billion dollars in aid. American foreign policy towards Israel has been to maintain Israel's superiority in the Middle East through military and financial aid. America's uncritical and steadfast support of Israel is hypocritical when trying to establish peace; it has brought instability and radical anti-American hatred to the region and been a major cause of conflict. The United States has to reeval...
  • Palestinians In Israel
    614 words
    I suggest two possible answers to this horrendous mess between the Israelis and the Palestinians. One is the two separate states solution, the other the two intermingled states solution. TWO SEPARATE STATES. 1. Draw a boundary for the Jerusalem Metropolitan Area (JMA). 2. Adjust the 1967 line between the "West Bank" and Israel by a few km to widen the very narrow Israeli central belt. 3. The boundary for Israel will INCLUDE the JMA. 4. The boundary for Palestine will ALSO INCLUDE the JMA. 5. Isr...
