Transcript of Israeli-Palestinian Conflict

By Sarahlaine Calva Israeli-Palestinian conflict The Israeli-Palestinian Conflict The Israelis What Happened? England found a way to resolve this problem.
On 1948, the U.N established a plan that would would divide the nation equally,
so that there would be a Jewish half
and an Arab half. The Jews accepted the resolution, however the arabs declined it. Israeli-Palestinian Conflict The countries Jordan and Syria joined him as well. Then in 1967, it happened again. The dictator of Egypt
wished for the Jewish state of Israel to be abolished. Israeli-Palestinian Conflict So all Arab states went to Khartoum in Sudan and claimed they wanted
"NO-recognition, NON-negotiation, and NO peace. One Side wants the other dead. But then Israel made an agreement in 1979
to give all of the Sinai peninsula back to the country Egypt to create peace. But Israel's enemies did not want peace. -Israelis are citizens of Israel. Also known as the Jews, or Hebrews. The Palestinians -Palestinians are a group of Semitic people. Also known as Philistines, Arabs, Muslims, etc. Who were Involved? How Did It Start? The Conflict started around the 1940's (sometime after WWI, The Holocaust.)
The Jews then thought they needed a homeland. So the Zionist came to claim Israel as theirs. Then, about seven arab armies attacked the Jewish nation so that it would be destroyed. But Israel survived. But Israel was able to attack first and survive, which made them able to claim the West Bank of Jordan. However, Many Palestinians lived in that part of Jordan But the Arabs didn't want all of their land taken away... Quotes “It would be my greatest sadness to see Zionists (Jews) do to Palestinian Arabs much of what Nazis did to Jews.”
― Albert Einstein (In this quote Einstein is talking about how Palestinian Arabs were not treated equally as the Zionists. They had poorer lifestyles and less rights.) “You cannot continue to victimize someone else just because you yourself were a victim once—there has to be a limit” - Edward W. Said (I think what Said is saying in this quote
is that, just because the Jews were not treated
right during the holocaust, that doesn't mean they have the right to treat Palestinians unfairly.) Quotes Continued... “For if life had taught her anything, it was that healing and peace can begin only with acknowledgment of wrongs committed.” - Susan Abulhawa, Mornings in Jenin (I think this quote means that if the Palestinians never started war, then they wouldn't be looking for ways to make peace.) “We can not fight for our rights and our history as well as future until we are armed with weapons of criticism and dedicated consciousness.”
-Edward W. Said (Talks about how the two territories will fight for their rights by using guns and weapons instead of a different option.) “How was it that a man could not walk onto his own property, visit the grave of his wife, eat the fruits of forty generations of his ancestors’ toil, without mortal consequence?” - Susan Abulhawa (In relation to this conflict, I think it could mean how could the Israelis deal with the fact of the Palestinians not getting fair rights, even though the Israelis know what it was like since they went through the Holocaust.)
