What is the Muslim and Jewish war in Israel and Palestine about?

Israel did not invade Palestine. There were Jewish communities living in the land of Historic Palestine before the creation of the State of Israel. Israel also had international law allowing them to declare independence separately from the Arabs who would have been entitled to declare an Arab State. The Arabs chose to wage an aggressive war to remove the Jewish State. They lost this war and now wish to use diplomacy to reverse their disastrous… Read More

What is the name of the Jewish nationalist movement that pushed for creating the modern state of Israel in palestine after world war 2?
Zionism was (and is) the movement to establish and preserve a Jewish homeland. It is worth noting that Zionism has existed since the 1890s when Theodor Herzl helped to put together his book Altneuland, which discusses the issue. In the early days of Zionism, a few Jews immigrated to what was then the Ottoman Empire, bought territory from the Turks and began to cultivate it along with the indigenous Palestinian Fellahin (farmers). They introduced new… Read More

(Arabs and Israelis) When in 1947 the U.N. called for the dividing of Palestine into Jewish and Arab states, the Arabs refused to go along. They claimed that all of Palestine belonged to them.

No. Israel is Israel and Palestine is Palestine. Confusion occurs because both things refer to an extant piece of land with people living on it, a nationality, an ethnicity, and a prior piece of land which no longer exists. Israel is a Jewish State that contains territory from the former British Mandate of Palestine. The remainder of the British Mandate of Palestine belongs to the modern Palestinian State. Israel is a majority Jewish population who… Read More
What was the immediate result of the United Nations resolution which went into effect in May 1948 to partition divide Palestine into two states one Jewish and one Arab?
First of all, the United Nations Resolution 181 went into effect when it was passed on November 30, 1947, not May 1948, but you are likely looking for the answers "War" and "Israel declared independence". Of course, this is oversimplified. When the United Nations passed Resolution 181, allocating territory to Jewish State and to an Arab State (Palestine), the Arabs rejected the plan leading to skirmishes between Jewish Militias and Arab Militias. In May 1948… Read More

Other nations around Israel also… Read More

It is highly unlikely that Palestine will prevail against Israel through strength of arms. Arab armies far larger and better equipped have not been able to achieve this. Palestine can certainly fight a guerrilla war or an intifada that will have an affect on Israeli resolve, but the best bet for a free and independent Palestine is to choose to accept that Israel is a necessary partner for peace. Israel is not going anywhere. Read More
