Question about Israel/Palestine Conflict?

  • #1

Main Question or Discussion Point

Can someone explain to me what this is about? I have a hard time understanding it, and I have heard it goes quite a ways back. As far as I know, it is a dispute over land.

Turn off the cartoons and turn on the news (thats CBC for you). You are 1 year away from voting. Educate yourself of politics,.....FAST.

Wow, I guess I'm not going to get a simple, one-sentence explanation. It will be an interesting read, for sure, and now that I am done my exams I have the time to read it.

Edit: I just saw cyrus' post.

I do watch CBC all the time. I just don't have a lot of information on this particular issue. I already know who to vote for, and it depends on if the party is avaliable. If not, I will just vote NDP.

Here's a one sentence explanation:

As an aftermath of World War II there are two populations of people, the Palestinians and the Israelis, who both believe that they should be in control of the land that the political state Israel is currently on.

Don't do that Nate, make him read on his own! A one sentence explination really does no good. You have to read and read and read and watch and watch and watch the news about it, for years.

You're completely right, there's simply far to much history to understand it in one sentence. Try these Dooga, for a start: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yasser_Arafat, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oslo_Accords, and this is a pretty comprehensive look at the very begining of the conflict, http://www.raceandhistory.com/worldhotspots/Israel.htm.

No, there is no short explanation to the situation. Like anything else, you have to read about it and study it to truly understand it. There is a wealth of information, all you have to do is go out and get. Nobody is going to spoon feed it to you and expect you to be well informed, it just won't work.
