One of the cultural barriers involves the difference of languages spoken by the two sides. Religious practices are also other differences between the two.

Why are Israelis torturing Palestinians?

There is an ethnic and national conflict between Israelis and Palestinians and therefore there are several cases of Israeli Security Forces torturing Palestinians. Additionally, a number of the laws used in the Occupied Territories are subject only to Israeli Military Review which prevents Civil Law from taking action to prevent such abuses. However, it is incorrect to assume that all Israelis or even most Israelis torture Palestinians.

The conflict in Israel today is between which two religious groups?

It depends which "Conflict in Israel" the question is asking about. If it is asking about the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict, the conflict is, strictly speaking, between Israelis and Palestinians which are national groups, not religious groups. However, the majority of Israelis are Jewish and the majority of Palestinians are Muslim. (However, there are numerous Muslim Israelis, Druze Israelis, and there are both Christian Israelis and Christian Palestinians.) If it is asking about Israel's internal political conflicts, they are often between Secular Jews and Religious Jews.

Why is Israel killing Palestinians on a daily basis?

Israel is not killing Palestinians on a daily basis. There are certainly conflicts between Palestinians and Israelis, but during tentative peace between the conflicts, Israelis are not killing Palestinians. There are difficulties that Israel imposes on the West Bank through the Occupation and there are difficulties imposed on the Gaza Strip through the blockade, but these difficulties do not result in death, just severe inconveniences.The claim that Israelis are killing Palestinians on a daily basis is hyperbole used for its effect.

How many Israelis killed and how many Palestinians killed since the state of Israel created?

If you do a search on the web of casualty numbers for all wars and conflicts between Israelis and Palestinians, you can find the numbers although there are many different reports on numbers especially on the Arab side which is less exact. I took the higher estimates for all and counted approximately 19,000 Palestinians killed by Israelis and 18,885 Israelis killed by Palestinians and other Arabs since the start of the conflict in the 1920s. Also note that a further 18,300 Palestinians were killed by other Arab groups (Black September, War of the Camps, etc.). The amount of Israeli casualties from only conflicts with the Palestinians ranges from 2,000-3,000 individuals.

Why are the Israelis and the Jews fighting?

There are isolated skirmishes between Religious Zionists and the Israeli Army. These come as a result of the Religious Zionists belief that Jews are promised all of the territory of the Land of Israel by God and therefore Palestinians are not entitled to any of it whereas the Israeli government has made concessions to the Palestinian Authority for peace. However, most of the confrontations are not between Israelis and Jews, but between Israelis (who are themselves mostly Jewish) and Palestinians. This conflict is described in more detail in the Related Question.

No. Neither of them are fighting "the Muslims" as a group. Most Palestinians are Muslims anyway.

What is the major disagreement between israel and Palestinians?

If the intended phrasing was Israelis and Palestinians (i.e. both groups of people), there are an incredible number of disagreements between the Israelis and Palestinians and I invite you to read more about them here. If I had to choose the most important of those disagreements, it would be that both Israelis and Palestinians wish to each create a sovereign nation where they have power to create a dominant religious/secular, cultural, and legal systems and are unwilling to cede to the other specific key areas of the territory that would be requisite for that.However, the question specifically phrases it as Israel and the Palestinians, (i.e. Israel as country or the government of that country and Palestinians as a group of people). The Israeli government has no issues with Palestinians per se; there are over 1.6 million Palestinian citizens of Israel and around 300,000 Palestinian permanent residents. The Israeli government, however, has a vested interest in keeping Israel as a state with a Jewish majority in order to preserve its identity and so the desire that the worldwide 11 million Palestinian population has to live in the lands under Israeli sovereignty necessarily threatens that goal. This results in antagonism between the Palestinians and the Israeli government, which has come to blows at several points in the history of Israeli-Palestinian relations.

What piece of territory is Arab-Israeli Conflict fought over?

How many Israelis have been killed by Palestinians?

According to Betselem (an Israeli Rights organization that is often seen as being Pro-Palestinian by Israelis) the count of Israelis killed by Palestinians since 1987 (the beginning of the first Intifada) until late 2011 is 1,517 civilian deaths. Military deaths are more ambiguous because it is difficult to distinguish an Israeli death from a "Non-Palestinian Arab bullet" from a "Palestinian Arab bullet". The number, though is probably between 1,000-2,000.
