The forcible eviction of the Palestinians and the denial of their right of return, has led to them becoming refugees, this has translated into the adoption of aggressive tactics and strategies to achieve their goal of a sovereign nation.

The Israeli-Palestinian conflict is the one of the world’s oldest conflicts, and it is still an ongoing problem in the world. Zionists and Arabs: two groups with conflicting beliefs who both claim Israel as their own. In wake of the Holocaust the U.N decided to gift the Jews a homeland
Throughout the history of Israel, the Jews have fought to retain what is theirs, even against those who claim to be our allies. The six day war being one of the biggest examples of when we had to defend ourselves. As Abba Eban told the U.N. in 1967, we were faced with the threat of attack from surrounding Arab nations and were forced to defend ourselves. Even though we were outnumbered and out gunned, we prevailed against the goliath of combined Arab forces. In so doing we regained the remaining land of Eretz Israel to use as a buffer between us and our enemies, establishing secure borders for our people.
Michael Kyriacou Psychology 102 Professor Silverstein 3/06/2015 Social Psychology Paper #1 Israel Vs Palestine Conflict The Middle East hosted many conflicts over the past century but the Israel and Palestine conflict has become one of the biggest. Following independence from Great Britain in 1947, Arabic and Israeli people were both promised an independent states. Unfortunately, after breaking up Palestine into borders, Israelis and Palestinians have been fighting ever since. Now that Israel owns a majority of Palestine, Palestinians have been kicked out with no place to go. As Palestinians fight back for a chance to get their territory back, Israel’s use of superior military force takes down Palestinian forces with ease. The latest incident involved the killing of three Israeli teenagers by the Hamas, an Islamic militant group, that have done a majority of the fighting with the Israeli military. Israel have responded by using airstrikes in Gaza, where the killing took place. Some Psychological terms that lead to this conflict are actor observer’s difference, conformity, and mirror image perception.
The big question we ask ourselves today is, will Israel and Palestine ever agree to stop fighting? The conflict between Israel and Palestine has been traced all the way back to 1948 through 2005 in The Israel Palestine Land Settlement Problem, written by Charles Rowley and Jennis Taylor. However, this conflict did not end in 2005. This article was written in 2006, so anything within the last 10 years is not included. The conflict between the two counties still continues to this day and still remains a major problem. Israelis and Arabs have been fighting over Gaza on and off for decades now. The three issues laid out in this article are the four major wars that took place, the refugee problem, and the conflict between religions. It concludes with the road map to peace. Throughout his whole book, The Israel-Palestine Conflict, Gelvin speaks of the same historical events that occurred between Israel and Palestine, while the article reveals there are still other conflicts, the land settlement problem has been the major conflict between Israel and Palestine since 1948.
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 Said) Growing up in Palestine,
The Jewish State tries to convince other nations that Israel is only working towards good things. “...Israel and America...stand together because we are fired by the same ideals and inspired by the same dream, the dream of achieving security, prosperity, and peace...” (Source A). This excerpt from a speech given by Benjamin Netanyahu, the Prime Minister of Israel, shows him almost advertising the progress Israel is making to solve international issues. With this, he is also trying to show his reasoning for Israel’s lack in human rights. “...My Friends, We are gathered here today because we believe in those ideals. And because of those ideals, I am certain that Israel and America will always stand together.” (Source A). The U.S. is allies with Israel, which means the they are not allies with Arab states, such as Iran. In Netanyahu’s speech, he uses the U.S. support to challenge Iran and other Arab states about their lack of respect and recognition of Israel as an international figure. One of the tactics the Jewish state uses to convince international authorities of their “right to exist”. “...The future of the Jewish state can never depend on the goodwill of even the greatest of men. Israel must always reserve the right to defend itself…” (Source A). One of the parts, to Israel, of international recognition, it the promise to always reserve the right to protect
Israeli Jews have a strong opinion that, “roughly three-quarters say anti-Semitism is not only common but on the rise globally, while virtually no Israeli Jews say it is decreasing” (Anti-Semitism and discrimination); On the other hand, Americans have an opposing view of the incline of anti-Semitism.

Introduction The conflict between the nations of Palestine and Israel holds a lot of significance in today’s current events, and is a greatly debated and controversial topic.
