Majority of the people living in the Gaza area are Palestinians but the borders are controlled by the Israeli (Caplain, 2011).
According to the Israeli, the whole of the land they are living in belongs to them because it was given to them after agreement by a group of powerful nations and this included even Gaza. They cannot therefore willingly give up that piece of land because it is theirs. Israeli troops occupied and guarded the area for years but this did not stop the Palestine from fighting for it. In 2005 however, Israel left the Gaza region and withdrew their troops from the area. However as soon as they left, a group that is highly suspected to be terrorist organization known as Hamas moved into the region and took control of the area.
Israel had no problem with the group until they started it started violence wanting the Israelis to move out simply because it insists it does not recognize Israel as a country. This infuriated the Israelis and because of the violence directed to them and the threat of being evicted from their home country, Israelis returned their soldiers in the region and put Gaza under blockade where it controls its borders including those who go in and out, in short, they have Gaza under strict surveillance.
Palestinians have been disadvantaged by the settlement of the Israeli. They do not have a stronger military power compared to Israeli nor can they match their intelligence. In light of the Hamas settling into Gaza, their lives have been turned like those of prisoners not to mention the other Palestinian prisoners held by Israeli. The peace talks according to their leaders are in favor of Israeli and none considers the point of view of Palestine which is the original owner of the land under question and even the one being resided by the Israeli. The peace talks therefore have yielded no positive outcome
