It is a story that has been told for over fifty years. A myriad of reasons have been cited to explain the factors influencing the conflict. One of the reasons cited by many people is religion. The story was made possible by beliefs in the three major religions, which are Christianity, Islam, and Judaism. The other issues surrounding the conflict are refugees, politics, and the relative population growth in both countries. Rowley and Taylor (79) put it clearly that the root of the problem between Israel and Palestine is the Occupied Territories.
Israeli has been at war with Arabs for decades because of Gaza. After the Holocaust, which saw Hitler kill six million Jews, an increasing number of Jews wanted to their country. The United Nations managed an agreement that involved giving the Jews a huge part of Palestine, which the Jews view as their traditional home. Regardless, the Arabs did not take the formation of Israeli as unfair because many Palestinians were forced to abandon their homes. The Arabs did not accept Israel as a country. The disagreement between the Israel and the Arabs caused the 1948 war that ended with Egypt controlling Gaza and the West Bank by Jordan (Rowley and Taylor 80). Both of these areas was inhabited by very many Palestinians. Israel was able to occupy all the areas of Palestine in 1967. They stayed in the area for many years. They tried to exchange the land they had taken over with the Arabs recognizing Israel as a nation.
Israel left the areas in 2005, and it did not take long before Hamas started controlling the area (Farsakh 120). The Hamas is dedicated to the cause of eliminating Israel and making Palestinians return to their old home. Currently, Israel has the power to control who goes in and gets out of Gaza. Sometimes Israel launches offensives against Gaza to retaliate after a missile has been launched in Israel.
