A conflict between Palestine and Israel began when a promise was made by Britain in 1917 to make Palestine Israel’s homeland, and their belief that the land was meant for them since biblical times. Despite their beliefs and Britain’s promise, it still does not give them the right to drive Palestinians out of their homes. They should negotiate and come up with a peaceful agreement instead of causing conflict and violence. The conflict between Israelis and Palestinians still exists today, they have yet to find a way to resolve their conflict and live together in peace once again. There was a time where many Jewish people lived in Palestine peacefully with the Arabs.

Bob Hawke once said; “Unless and until something concrete is done about addressing the Israeli-Palestinian issue you won't get a real start on the war against terrorism.” Perhaps Hawke put into a few simple words one of the most complicated issues within our world today, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. As Israel continues to strip the Palestinians of their land and fears it’s very existence because of the Palestinians terrorist acts, there seems to be no solution in sight. The world appears to be split and all over the place when it comes to this matter. According to The Middle East Institute for Understanding approximately 129 countries recognize Palestine as a state while many others do not. Over all the political matters within this issue not only affect Palestine and Israel but the world as a whole, as the Middle East and the West seem to disagree.
Corruption, oppression, discrimination, and foreign intervention have contributed to the creation of very complicated conflict that only seem to be getting worse. The Arab-Israeli conflict, the conflict in Yemen, and the conflict with the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria are very complicated issues that need to be solved by coherent and comprehensive policies made through diplomacy and by each side to be willing to sacrifice something. The Arab-Israeli conflict grew out of strong nationalist feelings from both the Arabs and the Jews. Foreign countries failed to recognize these feelings and tried to impose their own policies and ideologies; the Arab countries wanted Israel to disappear, and western countries (except England), supported Israel ignoring Palestinians’ nationalist feelings completely. The partition plan that was going to be put in place after WWII was rejected by the Arabs because it violated their right to choose their own destiny, and they stated that they would make Israel’s life impossible.
Since the creation of Israel in 1948, a long and arduous conflict has existed between the Israelis and Palestinians. Despite several attempts at negotiating a final peace agreement, all efforts have been fruitless. Two specific issues remain at the core of the inability to obtain a final peace agreement-the issues of Jerusalem and the question of Palestinian refugees. Both matters are highly contentious, emotional and political, and as a result have necessitated a substantial amount of deliberation over years. In the following, I will argue that in order to reach a final peace agreement, the issue of Palestinian refugees and the ‘right of return’ will be harder to solve than the issue of Jerusalem.
