    Introduction The Israeli-Palestinian conflict is one of the most controversial conflicts in modern history.

Since the start of the conflict, several peace negotiations have been carried out, resulting in variable degrees of success.

    the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is “not an ‘age-old’ conflict,” neither is the acceptance of a two-state solution as the remedy for the turmoil it has spurred (10). Instead, this notion has slowly developed over time from a litany of factors. In the context of Israel, Alan Dowty flags three notions as especially impactful.

    One of the main questions first asked about the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict is “who has the rightful claim to the land”, and in my opinion; Israel has rightful claim to the territory. The pro-Israeli stance that I hold is based on the fact that Israel has maintained military dominance over the disputed territory. I see the conflict as a survival of the fittest, where Israel has proved its supremacy by defeating all attempts of invasion and elimination, such as the Yom Kippur War, Six Day war, and

    The Palestinian and Israeli relationship can be described as a divorced couple still living together under the same roof. On one hand, Palestinians want a separation of Israel into two separate states because the restrictions placed upon them violate their fundamental rights and hold them back from making the amount of money they should be making. Tareq Abbas, son of the Palestinian Authority President, Mohammad Abbas, said “If you don’t want to give me independence, at least give me civil rights
