As long as the perpetrators of the hatred are still living the war will continue to live on. For your information, these people and nations are cousins. If you cannot live with your blood relatives who can you live with? The fueler of this evil divide can profer solution if they choose to in the next 24hours.

The old voice stated that people and nations should be their neighbors keepers. Unfortunately, Israel and Palestine has failed the world in this respect. The Bible estimated the average life span of a man to be 70yrs. In addition, it is easier and healthier to smile at/with your neighbor than frown 24/7. “What shall it profit a man or nation to frown and war over seven decades.”
Truly, the best way to resolve an impasse is through a round table dialogue. I suggest very strongly that Israel and Palestine should choose that pathway forward. It behooves both of you to create a good legacy for your offspring……peace. I rest my case. Welcome to http://www.provocativedebate.com.

After World War II and the Hitler’s Holocaust in which six million Jewish people were killed in Germany and other neighbouring countries, more Jewish people wanted their own country and flew to the current state of Israel, which they considered their homeland also referring as the land of Zion. The general assembly of the United Nations adopted Resolution 181, on 29 November 1947 recommending the adoption and implementation of a plan to partition Palestine into an Arab state, a Jewish state and the city of Jerusalem. The refugee jews were given a large part of Palestine, which they considered their traditional home but the Arabs who already lived there and in neighboring countries felt that was unfair and didn’t accept the new country.
In 1948, the two sides went to war, when it ended, Gaza was controlled by Egypt and another area, the west bank, by Jordan. They contained thousands of Palestinians who fled what was now the new Jewish home, Israel. In 1948, the country formally adopted the name “state of Israel ” with Jerusalem as the national capital whose ethnic ratio consisted of 75.3% Jewish and 20.7% Arab. The history of the Israel-palestine conflict began with the establishment of the state of Israel in 1948. The conflict came from the intercommunal violence in mandatory Palestine between Israel and Arabs from 1920 and erupted into full-scale hostilities in the 1947-48 civil war.
However, they were many attempt made later to establish peace between the two groups, involving the creation of an independent Palestinian state alongside the state of Israel (after Israel’s establishment in 1948) but despite the best effort made by US, UN, Israel, Egypt and Jordan. Israelis and Palestines failed to reach a final peace agreement.
Finally, dialogue is the key to peaceful resolution. It is imperative Israel and Palestine come together as relation to fashion out a lasting solution to this unending war. The UN still has a major role to play in resolving this hate war. May God help Israel and Palestine.

The long and short of it all, it is the willingness and desire of these two supposedly nations to swallow the bitter pill of pride for peace to prevail. War cannot and will not resolve an impasse of this magnitude.
