We all know about the history of Israel. It was a state in the past there where it is a state today.
If the facts about the Israel state are so clear , I am wondering about why or what it is the Palestinians fight about. Does this mean they do not agree with the Israeli history story or historical facts about Israel and their existings in the past as an israeli state long time ago , or is it about something else or do they just want to have the state back the way it was when it was how it was when it was called Palestine. I really like to understand a bit better what the real conflict is really about.
Or do the Palestinians want a state not as it was in the past where you see the Hebrew language and the Arabic language written on the coins so the speak, they want just an Arabic state so the speak with no Hebrewic letters on the coins so the speak as we see the Palestine we once knew was ruled by both Hebrew speaking people and Arabic speaking people.
This would mean the fight is about if the state should be an Arabic or Hebrewic state.
This could mean the fight is about the real history facts and both parties seem not to agree with each other, about the real history facts
Or is there perhaps another reason for the conflict what is going on in the middle east between Israel and Palestine I do not know about?
In short terms: where is the conflict actually all about in reality and why do they not come to an agreement on what terms?
I can not say the whole conflict is really clear to me what it really is all about.
I think if we know the facts there must be able to come to a solution, so I am wondering why there still is no peace in the middle east.
I found this old discussion while I was having a look at Bob's page.
Anyone care to contribute?
It is a tug-a-war over land, and on that land is a tug-a-war over who was there first, and who has the right to be there, and who does not. The given is, they are both there. When an independent Palestine is created, it is going to be on one-tenth of the British mandate of Palestine, whose borders where demarcated in 1922. Greater Israel is going to have to be defined by economic greatness, not expansive boundaries. David Ben-Gurion said about a Jewish homeland in 1939, "I will accept a homeland, even if it is the size of a tablecloth." We will all have to follow Ben-Gurion's request, because both Israelis and Palestinians are going to have to accept tablecloths. Which means ACCEPTING REALITY.
