History of the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict


For the most part, to understand the Conflict you must begin with the Old Testament book, Deuteronomy. It gives us insight into why Israelites consider that land (ie. present-day Israel) to be their historic land. In summary: the Jews were enslaved in Egypt, then they marched out of Egypt and into ‘Israel’. This was a war-filled period of time, but in the end the Jews won their wars against the various peoples that lived there 3000 years ago, and took control of the land.

The next part of understanding the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict comes from the New Testament, where we see that the Romans have taken control of that same land.

And then for a couple of thousand years, the land changed hands several times due to the warring nature of humans.

Finally, in the late 1800’s, the ‘modern’ phase of today’s conflict begins. The Jews, who were living throughout Europe in different locations, began to develop a mission to re-settle their ‘historic homeland’. It sounds reasonable, except that that land was also the historic homeland of many many other cultures.

And then hitler shows up (no capital ‘H’ for him … he’s a dick-head), and he does what he did to the Jews of Europe.

After WWII the world feels sorry for the Jews. I presume that at this point everybody is probably in agreement regarding the Jews.

But then: 1947. The UN decides to console the Jews of Europe by assuredly giving them the thing that they have been wanting for fifty years, namely, their ‘historic homeland’. Sounds like a nice gesture by the civilized world in the wake of the hell that the Jews suffered during the war. But in order to provide this kind gift to the Jewish people, the residents of that land had to be removed. They are the Palestineans.

Think about this for about an hour, and then continue reading.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
That’s right: the Palestinaens had to pay the price for hitler’s evil … how do you think the Palestineans felt … they were just farming their land, and then the UN says: ‘you got to move’.

And to make matters worse, the UN/US supported this newly-created nation of Israel by funding them monetarily and militarily, and all the sudden the Jews have the military power to close off the Palestineans from the outside world.

Not surprisingly, the Palestinians were mad. And so were their Muslim brothers. Hence all the f’d-up insanity that we live with today.
