The Palestinian-Israeli War Is Not Over

 Previously, there was an uproar in the mass media, electronic media and even social media about the war between Palestine and Israel.


The 11-day war left about 256 Palestinians, including 66 children.


Did you know, the recent conflict between the two sides is not new but has been going on for the past 100 years.


In this article, the author wants to ‘delve into’ the real reason why Palestine and Israel are often at war with each other.


After the Ottoman Empire was defeated in the First World War, Britain took control of the area named ‘Palestine’.


Palestine is located between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea. At that time, Palestine was inhabited by a majority of Arabs and a handful of Jewish minorities.


Britain at the time offered Palestine as a 'home' to the Jews. The decision is one of the most controversial and disputed in the modern history of the Arab world.


The decision has baffled world historians for some close because Britain was willing to establish settlements for the Jews whereas the Jews at that time only had a population of less than 10% of the total population.


While many thought Britain made the decision because most of its rulers at the time were in favor of the Zionist regime but there were also other views that were accepted by the public.


Among them was the domination of Palestine was a strategic occupation to protect Egypt and the Suez Canal.


The second view is that Britain needs to do good with the Zionist regime to gain the support of the Jews in the United States (US) to help Britain win the war.


In addition, Britain is also said to be sympathetic to the plight of persecuted Jews in Europe.


As a result, a British mandate dubbed the Balfour Declaration was signed. However, the declaration is a miserable point for Palestine.


Around the 1920s to 1940s, Jews fled the persecution and tragedy of the Holocaust that befell them in Europe.


After that, violence between Jewish Arabs and Britain began. In 1947, the United Nations (UN) had decided to divide Palestine into two between Arab and Jewish populated states.


Jerusalem, the holy land of both Islam and Yahui, will be made an international city. The Jews welcomed the proposal but the Arabs vehemently rejected it.


In 1948, Britain was forced to withdraw from disputes between Arabs and Jews for not being able to resolve problems between the two sides.


Jewish leaders at the time abruptly announced the formation of Israel and were backed by the then US President, Harry Truman.


The action made the Palestinian people unhappy, so the war broke out.


The war also involved several other Arab countries such as Saudi Arabia and Egypt.


The war, however, was a disaster for the Palestinian people and gave independence to Israel.


Following the war, hundreds of thousands of Palestinians fled and the Zionist regime managed to take control of most of the Palestinian land.


Jordan, which sided with the Palestinians, controls the West Bank while Egypt controls Gaza.


Jerusalem is divided between the Zionist regime and the Jordanian army.


On June 5, 1967, the beginning of the Six Day War, the map of Palestine was changed again.


Israel controls the West Bank, the Gaza Strip and other territories. To make matters worse, many Palestinians live in Gaza and the West Bank.


The Zionist regime, however, blocked the Palestinian population from returning because it was alleged to cause chaos and disrupt Israel's position as a Jewish 'state'.


To this day, Israel still controls the West Bank.


Turning to Jerusalem. Why is Jerusalem a tussle between the Palestinians and the Jews?


Jerusalem is a holy land for 3 religions, namely Islam, Christianity and Judaism.


Israel claims the whole of East Jerusalem is its capital. For the past 50 years, Israel has built illegal settlements in Jerusalem.


More than 600,000 Jews live there but Palestinians insist the Zionist regime's actions are in terms of international law.


In fact there have been many efforts to make peace but the solution sought has come to a standstill.


Beginning in 1979 to the 1990s, Palestinian and Israeli leaders held negotiations to find a two -state solution.


The Palestinian-Israeli conflict erupted again in 2000 as well as 2008. The latest peace plan was proposed by former US President Donald Trump in January 2020.


The plan was described by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as a ‘deal of the century’ but the Palestinians claimed the deal was biased.


The latest conflict erupted from May 6 to May 21 when Palestinians were still celebrating the month of Ramadan. They had to forget the Aidilfitri celebration in order to defend the country from the atrocities of the Zionist regime.


Although a ceasefire was reached after 11 days of conflict, the Zionist regime once again acted to attack the Palestinian population after that.


The question that arose in the minds of the people of the world, where were the other Arab countries when Palestine was attacked? What is the role of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) in dealing with the conflict? Until when will the Palestinian people be forced to suffer tortured by the Zionist regime?


Only time determines.
