The other day I saw a story in the Guardian about a Arab teenager who was killed on his birthday in the West Bank. Another civilian casualty in a war that has been raging for decades.
I posted it to my Facebook page. I couldn’t understand why so many civilians were being massacred; women and innocent babies. Truth be told, I’ve always been at a loss as to why Israelis and Arabs hate one another so much.
From Facebook post:
Really difficult to understand what is happening in Gaza. Is Israel just bombing the shit out of innocent people?
What I got in response was quite helpful. It was a rundown of the history of the Israel-Palestine conflict. The article explains major events in this conflict beginning in 1948. This is a video briefly explaining what happened to set off the current situation in the region.
