That day, the armies of Egypt, Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, and Iraq invaded/intervened in what had just ceased to be the British Mandate, marking the beginning of the 1948 Arab–Israeli War. Palestinian gunmen routinely lob grenades at Israeli army outposts guarding the border with Egypt, and fire at the outposts and at Israeli patrols. This should have been, and nearly was, the breakthrough required to bring peace. A couple generations ago, the biblical scholar Edward J.

The area east of the river, called Transjordan (now Jordan), was made a separate British mandate and eventually given independence (See map at right). The Muslim Brotherhood will likely benefit from Iran’s decline. At least, in terms of international condemnation. For all the challenges that lie ahead, we see many reasons to be hopeful.

The people of Palestine, thus, felt the imprint of many different cultures and religions. When the war was over Hussein demanded the return of the West Bank and East Jerusalem from Israel but with no success. In Israel, Netanyahu fired members of his cabinet last week and the Knesset – the Israeli parliament – has voted to disband, paving the way for elections to be held in the country in March, two years ahead of schedule. Hamas, a militant Islamic group, wants an end to negotiations and a resumption of the Intifada.

The Jewish people never gave up hope that we would someday return to our home in Israel. That is one reason why this conflict grinds on remorselessly from decade to decade. Suicide bombings, terrorist attacks, and retaliation continued. Neither the names nor the symbols of the new states had any connection to their inhabitants. He told members of the Egyptian National Assembly, "God will surely help and urge us to restore the situation to what it was in 1948." The subject has long evoked interest and crit­icism.

There are powerful well-armed groups on both sides who are happy for the conflict to continue at this level, and talk of peace scares them.

It has to be clear to all that having had such bad experience with Gaza, Israel is fully justified to expect that if statehood were ultimately granted to the Palestinians, and if demilitarization were not imposed and strictly supervised, the Palestinians of the �West Bank� would be equally inclined to attack Israel on a daily basis. E., two thousand years before the rise of Islam. 2. Here�s to the day when all of them will live side-by-side in peace.
