“The bombing of the King David  Hotel was not an act of  terrorism – it was an act of combat between warring forces.  Shortly thereafter, England decided to leave Palestine, and the Jewish state was  born.  Mr. Begin and the Irgun laid down  arms along with the Haganah upon the rebirth of the rebirth of the Jewish state  on May 14, 1948…at 4:32 p.m.” [1]        Using theology as a source of history,        “Jacob’s  name was changed to Israel  when he wrestled with the Angel of the Lord” [2]        Jacob being the son of Isaac, himself son of Abraham.  Israel  became an independent state although the Arab countries surrounding city of David wanted to quash it  before its rebirth.  History has proved  that Jerusalem  has been tarnished by the catholic crusades in 1099 and the arrival of the Muslims  claiming the city for them, it fell into the hands of the Muslims, at the head,  Saladin in 1187.           The reason why there is still much conflict between Israel  and the Arab world is                 “Not land, money or history.  The  reason for the continual conflict over the city of Jerusalem is theology.” [3]        Coming to one argument about the beginning of the conflict, one  would rather blame the British administration for not taking the Arab threats seriously  and believing that it would all end peacefully and that the crown government of  Great Britain would keep oil rich Arab countries and Israel as a strategic  military base instead of accusing Zionists who only wanted to return to their  homeland and find rest and refuge from the Nazi persecutions of 1939 – 1945.      Britain and the Arab revolt of 1936 – 1939…        The implications of the British administration  in the Arab revolt.        “The British white paper policy limited Jewish immigration into Israel to escape Hitler’s holocaust in Europe.  It allowed  only five thousand Jewish immigrants per year to immigrate into Palestine.  Because they could not legally enter  Palestine without proper documentation, and because the five thousand permits  that were legally given by the British mandate were virtually gone, most Jews  were considered ‘illegal immigrants’ by the British and were rounded up in  large numbers and sent back by ship to Hitler and the death camps.” [4]        The White Paper Policy discouraged  Jewish people to immigrate to their homeland, and at the same time, the British  administration was pressured by a new group of frustrated radical Arabs.  The latter group wanted the end of Jewish  return to Israel and the  sales of land to the Jews, and above all, they wanted to establish an Arab  government within Israel.  With the world financial crisis and Europe at the brink of another possible world war,  British found itself forced to focus on the Arab problem and did not realize  the degree of hate that dwelled within the Arab world for the Jewish  people.  The root of the problem back in  1936 – 1939 was the imminent war against Germany.  Britain would be fighting the Nazi  to gain the American support, and at the same time, would need Arab oil and thus;  Arab goodwill.  Jews, back in Israel had no choice but to depend on Britain.   And this created certain confusion.  On one side, Britain wanted Arab support and  in return they would ask for autonomy and the  departure of the Jews, and on the other hand, it could not do it openly  as then, great Britain would be regarded as aiding the Nazis to disseminate the  whole Jewish population.  Though the British  policy adopted in favour  of the Arabs, it had changed over time, as successive heads of state were in favour of a stable Jewish  state.  So the matter became even more  complicated when the British chose to apply the policy of appeasement for the  Arabs.  Now the Balfour declaration was  the obstacle for Great Britain  – it wanted to get out of the declaration but it was a mandate imposed by the  UN and the world wanted to see what would be Britain’s next step.  It had two choices to extricate from the  declaration.  Either requires partition,  to get out of its own mess and leave those two nations fight for the land or to  stay and improvise.  The British had made  alliance with many Arab heads of state and this complicated the situation when  the peel commission reported that there could not eventually be any  reconciliation between the Jews and the Arabs and that the mandate did not  prove to be successful at all.  The  solution proposed was to partition the state of Israel into an Jewish and an  Arab state and have a piece of land for the British as ‘compensation’ and so  they would always have a share of the Arab - rich oil economy and have their  military support from the Jewish part and from the Arab’s part also.  The outcome was that one party, the Twentieth Zionist Congress, accepted  the partition plan while the Palestinian  Arabs nationalists rejected the idea of partitioning.  The Arabs even used the Wilson’s point of self – determination  against the British and the proposition of division of land.  The revolt began in autumn 1937 and the  result was that Jewish people went more and more self – sufficient while the  Arabs boycotted agriculture facilities.   In a certain way, the Arabs ‘fighting’ for  the people living in Palestine at that time, did nothing to improve their  living standards, but through the revolt showed their weakness and how they  pluged the whole country into disarray.      The war of independence  and the birth of the Medinat Israel (the State of Israel)…        How did the war began?        The Arabs had rejected the idea of division of  land and they had no apparent reason for wanting so.  Unless if one would magnify the only reason  of sharing Jewish homeland with other peoples as a tragedy, it is difficult to  find another viable reason.          Can one suggest that the war for independence  began much before World War II and that it rooted from the desire of Herzl, the  founder of Zionism, to restore Israel  as the homeland for the Jews? But obviously, historians would rather recall the  freedom fighter, Menachem Begin, founder of the Irgun, an underground military  force to counterattack British from sending Jews to Germany.  Some regarded him as being a terrorist and he  was as even as thorn in n the side of the British at that time where the latter  wanted to appease the Arabs by sending Jews to concentration camps and  obtaining oil from Arab allies.          “Menachem  begin was a freedom fighter whose targets always consisted of British military  personnel or those who were armed combatants against the Jewish people.” [5]          It was after the bombing of the king David  Hotel that Britain  decided to leave Palestine  and.  The question that remains is why Britain  would suddenly feel inferior to the problem of the Jewish – Arab conflict?        The war began when Israel  declared its independence on the 14th of May, 1948 at 4:32 p.m. At  the Tel Aviv.          “We hereby proclaim the  establishment of the Jewish State in Palestine,  to be called Israel.”  [6]    This proclamation was the end of suffering but the beginning of a  new conflict between the State of Israel and the Arab world.        “Sitting in the throat of  the Islamic nations is Israel...”  [7]        Soon after the proclamation of the State of Israel, five surrounding  Arab countries; Egypt, Jordan, Syria,  Lebanon and Iraq  attacked the newborn state but failed.  This was the war of Palestine,  but also a war of religion more than that of land.         “The real difference  between the two religions, however, lies in their basis for belief.”[8]        Now one can argue about the reason why would Arab states, who never  showed any support for Palestine, before the  rise of Zionism, suddenly feel concerned about the fate of Palestine.  Was it for interests, because of jealousy or hatred? Analysts would  argue that it was because they had been cheated out of their homeland. It was,  according to them, a war between a native Arab population and an immigrant  Jewish population.  The Arabs lost the  war due to lack of cooperation and the fact that they had their own ways  fighting. The fighting has ever continued till today.

Well in 1948, after the second world war, most jew that were in Europe, mostly from Germany in the concentration camps, wanted to return to the promise land. That land was certainly not theirs anymore because it was occupied for thousands of years now by the muslims and chatolics. Therefore the US funded the jews so they could buy back those lands from the palestinians. Some of them took the money but most refused, but they were all forced to leave and they gave them a small area, and didnt consider them as a country. If you see the map you can see the country of Israel, and nothing else. Since then, they are trying to get their land back but they are surrounded by israel who controls everything in that region. They have become a small population over time, because as you can see, when they throw one bomb that makes infrastural damages, israel do raids and kill thousands of them. Therefore you can see that in that small area where the palestinians live, there is at least one family member killed by israelis in each family. The americans backing up israel 100%, furnishing them all the necessary weapons for that purpose, thats why it creates those kamikaze. They use the only weapon they have(hand made bombs) to infiltrate israel and get regenve. They want to be independent and get at least some of their land back.
I don't see this issue being resolve in our lifetime, it could only get worse. Theres a lot o say about this, so do some research, because that area is the richest area in the world(OIL GOLD AND DIAMONDS). And the US is always seeking more of those.
