Israel and Palestine you mean?
It’s one of those subjects that you can make an entire class out of.
But to understand the big picture, you have to go back to the history of Zionism and the creation of the state of Israel in the late 1940s, when Israel forcefully displaced hundreds of thousands of Palestinians and destroyed their towns and villages. Since the Six-Day War of 1967, Israel has occupied the state of Palestine with illegal settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem, while committing many different types of human rights violations against Palestinians. This map sums it up pretty well.
As for Gaza, it is pretty much an open-air prison under siege by the Israeli military. “Operation Protective Edge” is the third Israeli aggression against Gazans since 2008. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like there will be a permanent end to the violence anytime soon.
I would recommend for you to do your own research though because I just pretty much gave you the most basic response I could without making it a long, well researched, and extremely complex book.
Can any of my followers do a better job answering this question?
