Conflict pt 1


A bunch of people may think this is anti Semitic but I can honestly say i don’t care. I’m going to talk about the Israel/Palestinian conflict. But first, History!

In 1917 the Balfour Declaration was sent to Baron Rothschild by Arthur Balfour informing him of the British Government’s support of a Jewish state in the all ready inhabited Palestine region, then a British colony. The people already living in the region weren’t particularly happy about it unless they were Zionists, who believe they are entitled to those lands because they are Jewish.
In 1945 American President Franklin D. Roosevelt reassured the inhabitants of Palestine that the US would not interfere without consulting The Palestinians, both Jewish and Muslim(not sure about Christians, pagans and Atheists were on the down low) By that time The British were now opposed to a Jewish state and unregulated refugees the the region.
1946 Harry Truman establishes a committee lead by Henry F. Grady to work with a British committee. Truman recommended 100,000 refugees be allowed into the colony and approved of a Jewish state.
1947 The UN decided on a partition Palestine in the Resolution 181 (also known as the Partition Resolution)to be enacted in 1948
1948 the Jewish state is established and recognized by the West and Palestine is separated from itself with Jerusalem in international control for awhile.
