Imagine a person or a family even, being ripped away from their home without warning, imagine seeing a family that has to leave all their belongings behind, the belongings that they worked hard for. One can feel the grief and sorrow of these people. The image that is going through the readers head is exactly the struggle that the people of Palestine went through. The people of Palestine are struggling to survive and many live in poverty. The best solution for solving the conflict between the Israelis and the Palestinians is to allow Palestinians to have their own state alongside Israel. This will hopefully bring those inflicted by poverty out of destitution, allow the chaos in the Middle East decrease, and allow the competition for land to cease.
The conflict in the Middle East is nothing new, the ongoing conflict between the Palestinians and the Israelis have gone on since the late 1800s when the Zionists began colonizing the Palestinian's Land. Zionism is the political support for the creation and development of a Jewish homeland in Israel (Merriam-Webster). When the first wave of immigrants from various places all over Europe immigrated to Palestine, initially there was not a problem. However, when more groups of Jews relocated into Palestine the Zionist regime increased and the idea of Palestine being a homeland for Jews increased. The overwhelming presence of Zionist Jews, who also expressed the wish to take over the Palestinian land, cautioned the natives, which caused chaos. The immigration of Jews to the Palestinian state started well before the holocaust. The rise of Hitler's regime caused more and more Jews to immigrate to Palestine. Thus allowing the conflict between the indigenous people of Palestine and the Jews to grow. .
The conflict between the Palestinians and the Jews was finally recognized by the United Nations (UN) in 1947. The UN decided to reconcile the conflict by splitting up the Palestinians land and giving fifty-five percent of the land to the Jews who only made up 30 percent of the population.
