History of Israel-Palestine Conflict

SARTHAK IAS LUCKNOW

Due to its religious beliefs and foreign culture, Jews have been persecuted throughout history In1897, the Jews started an agitation called the Zionist Movement, which used to avoid deceit and establish their own state in their native homeland, Israel. World Zionist organization was formed to make lawyers for the establishment of a Jewish homeland in Palestine. As a result, a large number of Jews started flowing in Palestine and they bought land and started settling there. By 1916, after the Sykes-Picot Agreement (a secret agreement between Great Britain and France) Palestine came under British control. This led to the split of the Old Ottoman Turkish Empire. Later, through the Belphoro Declaration, British Foreign Secretary James Ballfour agreed to establish a Jewish country. In the 1930s, the Nazis gained power in Germany, the Jews who came to Palestine took a major turn, from which thousands of people came from Europe to Palestine. Arabs saw this as a threat to their country and they fought hard with them. As the British government remained as a silent observer, violence reached its peak. In 1947, the British government mentioned the future question of Palestine for the United Nations. The United Nations divided the land into two countries. The Jewish people accepted this agreement and declared Israel's independence.
