The Palestine and Israeli conflict By Abe versteeg, Juliette van Gelder, Mariam Martirosjan and Deyonta de Vos
History – Land of Canaan Semitic people related to the Phoenicians of Tyre entered the area about 2,000 BD – Land of Canaan. Different tribes including Semitic people settled in Canaan.
History – Israelites Moses led the Israelites out of Egypt. King David conquered Jerusalem about 1000 B.C. and established an Israelite kingdom.
History - Romans 61 B.C Roman troops invaded the country and the land was called Judea. Romans drove the Jews away, calling the land Palestine.
History - Arabs Arab armies moved north from Arabia to conquer most of the Middle East, including Palestine. The population gradually accepted Islam and the Arab-Islamic culture of their rulers. Jerusalem became holy to the Muslims.
The land nowadays 78% named Israel. The rest occupied by palestine. Terrorised by war, especially in the Gazastrip.
Palestine - Israeli conflict Start in the early 20th century and still ongoing Zionism remaining key issues are: mutual recognition, borders, security, water rights, and control of Jerusalem.
Pro-Palestine arguments Palestine should have been entitled to self-government after WWI. No other country in the world would accept this situation. Jewish settlers never made any pretence at settling down amicably with their neighbours.
Invalid Israeli arguments Our distant ancestors owned this land and were wrongfully dispossessed, therefore we're entitled to take it back. Jews had been without a country for many centuries and persecuted by many different people; surely they were entitled to a country of their own at last?
Our conclusion We support palestine because of previous arguments. Who wouldnt feel offended?
