Transcript of Israeli/Palestinian Conflict

Israeli/Palestinian Conflict By: Ganatheepan and Rajan The Israelis Palestine (Arabs) Israel (Jews) What does each side claim? The Palestinians Socio-cultural Differences Resources Israelis are citizens or nationals of the modern state of Israel.

Although Israel is a Jewish state, it is occupied by other multi-cultural occupants, such as Arab Citizens who still reside in that region after Israel was formed in at the 14th of May, 1948.

Most Israelis follow the faith of Judaism, a monotheistic religion based on the Hebrew Bible, with claims to have originated from the Middle East. Retaliation/Escalation is an action or situation which is interpreted as an “attack” or “wrong” against an individual, group or state. The action is then taken to right the “wrong” throughout counterattack. This creates an escalating cycle which never ends and has no previous reason for taking place.

In the case of the Israeli/Palestinian conflict, the issue does not relate to differences and occupation of holy land anymore but of attacking the other side due to revenge and retaliation from a action or situation one side committed which is a never-ending cycle. each party claims that the state of Israel belongs to each party.

Palestinians claim that they have had residing in that region before Israel was formed in the 1948 and Jerusalem belongs to them.

Israelis claim that before the Roman Empire, 63 BCE, there was a Jewish kingdom in present day Israel and Jerusalem belongs to them. Palestinians who are modern descendants
of the region of Palestine.

surround Israel who are of Arabic origin all united by religion.

and linguistically Arabic who all follow the same Islamic faith. Differences between people, groups or cultures that result in mis-trust and potential conflict.

Israeli settlements Key Issues MOST IMPORTANT!! Control of Jerusalem SIMPLE: TIMELINE of the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict Formation of Israel 1948 1964 Power Shifts Formation of PLO 1959 The Six Day War 1967 Uprising Palestinians 1987-1993 Oslo Accords 1993 & 1996 May 14th, 1948, the sovereign state of Israel was formed by the UN due to the hardships that the Jewish community felt throughout the Second World War. On formation, the countries such as Egypt, Jordon, Syria and Iraq attacked the region. Israel gained 50% more land. Power shifts from an all-Palestine power government. Power is collapsed in 1959. In 1959, Gamal Abdel Nasser (Egyptian President) officially annulled the All-Palestine Government by decree, reasoning that the All-Palestine Government had failed to successfully advance the Palestinian cause. In this period a new political and para-military organization is formed known as PLO or Palestine Liberation Organization. The organization was founded by Yasser Araft in 1964. They are admitted to the Arab League in 1964, and is considered a terrorist organization by the United States of America. The Six Day War takes place in 1967. One side is Israel. The other side is Egypt, Syria and Jordon. The Palestinians fought on the side of the Arabs. Decisive war that lasted just six days, Israel was able to be victorious. Able to take control over the West Bank region which is the East Jerusalem of Jordon, Gaza Strip and Sinai Peninsula from Egypt, and the Golan Heights from Syria. Palestinians uprising known as the Intifada takes place, rebelling against the Israeli government using blockades, small arms exchanges and inciting IDF soldiers to terrorize Palestinian civilians. The Oslo Accords were the first serious attempts towards the peace between the two opposing sides. In the Oslo Accords, there were many issues that were addressed and Israel was willing to offer almost everything they were asking for, but Palestinians turned them down. 2006 2002-2007 Now... Continues... Canada's Involvement http://www.international.gc.ca/name-anmo/peace_process-processus_paix/canadian_policy-politique_canadienne.aspx?lang=eng&view=d Arab Peace Initiative Arab Peace Initiative, controversial and viable option presented in 2002 by Saudi Arabia at Beirut Summit. This meant returning to pre-Six Day war borders. With the return of these lands back, this would initiate the significant risks to the security and stability of Israel. This would then reduce the size of Israel by half. Starting from 03:22 THANK YOU! :D Shared by a friend in FACEBOOK, Social Media Site Posted Yesterday Biased Opinion Towards
