  • The conflict is really only 100 years old. Subscribe to our channel! One of the biggest myths about the Israel-Palestine conflict is that it's been going on for centuries, that this is all about ancient religious hatreds. In fact, while religion is involved, the conflict is mostly about two groups of people who claim the same land. And it really only goes back about a century, to the early 1900s. At its heart, it is a conflict between two self-determination movements — the Jewish Zionist project and the Palestinian nationalist project — that lay claim to the same territory.

    Ask any comon Palestinian or Israeli if they want this conflict to end, and I'm pretty much sure they'll say yes to that. Is just that the extremist fuels the fire and a lot of civilians who have nothing/does no want to get involve are the ones taking the huge blow.

    So it’s Britain’s fault. Who thought it would be a good idea to promise the same land to 3 different groups of people and think nothing bad would come of it? ESPECIALLY when that land is rich in disputed history.
