Arab and Israeli Conflict In this coursework I will be studying sources and show their effect and purpose also I will give my own views on the Arab and Israeli conflict. From looking at sources A and B I have learned the motivation of the members of the PLO was that the people of Palestine wanted to regain their land and would do anything to get it back from the Israeli. Another thing I have learned from these sources was the people who wrote them were anti-Semitism and had feelings of hatred towards the Jews. I can tell this because the way the source was written was to persuade people that the Palestinians were eager to get their land back from the Jews and would kill them if necessary. In addition to this they had waited to long and were impatient "For twenty years our people have been waiting for a solution to the Palestinians problem." This shows that the people had been waiting to long and wanted the problem resolved this is why they joined the PLO. Some other things mentioned in these two sources was the Palestinians refused to remain as refugees and wanted their land back. When concluding both sources A and B the purpose of both of them was to get an message across that the PLO was ready to regain their land and they were ready to fight "we are ready to shed our blood for you!" this show the people of the PLO were willing to clash with the Israeli in any circumstance this shows that they don't like to fight but they have to fight for their country. From examining all four sources the way sources A and B differ from C and D is that sources A and B are saying that the PLO should have control over Palestine were ... ... middle of paper ... ...s the Palestinian backing up his violent behaviour .I have not chosen the PLO being described as "terrorist and murderers" as a accurate interpretation because firstly there was not enough information on the sources to back up this information and the sources such as source D explain in little detail on the conflict and gave basic answer such as "In reality no place exited". This shows that the source has no back up to say that the PLO are being described as murderers or terrorist it does give us a idea on the matter but does not back it up where on the other hand the sources written by the Palestinian do back up there opinion. This is why I chose the PLO as being "freedom fighters" because they want tot fight to achieve independence and accomplished freedom not because they want to kill the Jews or the Israeli people.
