It’s Complicated: What Is the Israel-Palestine Conflict?

You’ve seen people light up social media with strong opinions on the Israel-Palestine conflict. This conflict isn’t new and is very complex. Instead of giving you our opinion, we’ll give you the basics you need to do your own research and make up your own mind.

Where in the world?

The Israel-Palestine conflict is occurring in a part of the Middle East called The Holy Land, which is sacred in the Jewish, Christian and Islamic traditions. It’s located on the Mediterranean not too far from the swanky Greek isles and just a hop-skip-and-jump from the pyramids in Egypt. This area has a complicated history that’s wrapped up in religion, culture and never-ending war.

David and Goliath

Remember the biblical story of David and Goliath? Well, David was Jewish and Goliath was a Philistine. It’s a story that’s a major part of the Jewish, Christian and Muslim religious heritages. We all love and cherish the story of David and Goliath. And really, the modern-day Israel-Palestine conflict over yonder can be reduced to the David and Goliath story. It’s a philosophical debate as to who is David and who is Goliath in this endless war. And no, we can see people arguing in real-time over who’s on the right side of history. Don’t worry, they’re going to make sure you know what side they’re on.

You know the basics. Now, it’s time to seek answers.

Really, it’s up to you to educate yourself around the complexities of the Middle East. But remember this: When people are screaming at each other, they’re debating over who is Goliath and who is David on this area of the map. That’s it. It’s a hot button issue, and you should dive in and learn more about it if you’re going to understand it. Unfortunately, the conflict shows no signs of ending anytime soon.
