If this question is referring to 1948, they declared war on Israel. Following that, they refused to recognize it and continued to decry its existence. They also proceeded to lose every war they waged against Israel.

The Arab countries surrounding Israel have never wanted Israel to exist, and have attacked numerous times.

Egypt and Jordan are the only two Arab States to sign a peace treaty with Israel.

Seven Arab states invaded Israel upon its establishment, namely Egypt, Syria, Jordan, Lebanon, Iraq, Saudi Arabia and Yemen.

There were two immediate effects. 1) Israel came into being as a democracy with a parliamentary style of governance. 2) The surrounding Arab Nations declared war on the nascent State of Israel, widening the contemporaneous Jewish-Arab Engagement into an international war (the Arab-Israeli War of 1948-9).

Israel has fought wars against Arab States on six occasions. These wars occurred from 1948-9, 1956, 1967, 1967-1970, 1973, and 1982.

There are a number of Arab States in a de jure state of war or non-recognition of the State of Israel, but there is no Arab State as of April 6, 2012 that is in de facto war with the State of Israel.

Sadat entered Egypt into a peace agreement with Israel. The existing Arab policy had been to accept nothing less than the complete destruction of Israel.

Various Arab countries have attacked Israel since the day Israel became a country.

Israel became a state on May 14, 1948 when they declared independence with the neighboring Arab states.

Israel won the Arab-Israeli War.

Due to the 1967 6 day war between Israel and a coalition of Arab States, the end result was enlarging the size of Israel.

Israel is a Jewish state which has historically been at odds with the Arab Middle East. The United States has supported Israel as a) the only democratic and free society in the Middle East and b) as an ally against hostile Arab nations.

No. Israel is a considered to be the Jewish State. Palestine is considered an Arab country.

No. No Arab nations recognize the sovereignty of the state of Israel.

All but two Arab nations hate Israel (Egypt and Jordan). So any other Arab regime hates Israel.

The reasons for the Conflict in general have not dissipated and can be found at the Related Question below. As for the particular start-and-end dates, 1948 was when Israel was declared an independent, sovereign state. There could not be an Arab-Israeli Conflict if there was no Israel. 1973 is the end date because it was after the Arab failure in the Arab-Israeli War of 1973 that the Arab States realized that military victory over Israel would never be successful. After that point, they began to endorse the Palestinian Cause more fully and see that as an avenue to weaken Israel and/or the Arab States negotiated with Israel in good faith to come to a peaceful long-term solution.

After WWII, the British mandate in Palestine ended and the State of Israel became a reality in 1948. The Arab countries surrounding the new state immediately declared war, vowing to push Israel into the sea. Israel had to fight for its existence.

The Jewish people are living very nicely in Israel, and will continue to do so. They have made their nation into a beautiful country. Their only problem is the surrounding Arab countries that are jealous of what Israel has become and want to destroy them.

It is unclear what this question means. If you are asking, "In which year did the United States help Israel to bring Jews out of Arab countries and into Israel?" the answer is "Never". The United States has never assisted Israel in its missions to save Jews in peril worldwide with craft, financial support (specifically for this), or expertise and these missions have been entirely run on the Israeli budget. Most Jews actually fled Arab countries on their own, but arrived in Israel as result of there being minimal opportunities elsewhere. These mass immigrations to Israel occurred primarily between 1949 and 1952.

No. The United Arab Emirates a country that consists of a collection of Emirates located more than 3 hours flying from Israel. The UAE is not a group of Arab countries like the UN (United Nations) is an organisation of independent states.

There was no country of Israel prior to 1948 (when Israel declared independence in Tel Aviv), although there had been Jewish States in the area 2000 years earlier. There was no country of Palestine prior to 1988 (when Palestine declared independence in Tunis, Tunisia). There had never been an Arab State with its center in the southern Levant prior to this and the last Arab Empire to rule the southern Levant lost control to the Ottomans nearly 500 years ago. The Arab-Israeli Conflict began in the 1920s between the the Yishuv (Jewish Settlers who would eventually become the Israelis) & their allies and the Arab Fellahin (Arab peasants who would eventually become the Palestinians) & the surrounding Arab countries. So, both Israel and Palestine came about as a result of the continuing conflict.

Israel represents many negative things to to the Arab nations such as, Arab repression, Jewish ascendance, Western Imperialism, and Division of the Unified Arab Lands.

Aided Israel during the Arab-Israeli War of 1973. The Arab states attacked Israel during the Holy Day of Yom Kippur. The USA gave Israel enough military aid for the nation to defend itself. Since the USA kept Israel from being defeated and wiped off the map by the Arab nations, they put an oil embargo on the USA.

Egypt was the first Arab country to recognize the State of Israel in 1979.
