The israeli palestinian conflict:
The Israeli–Palestinian conflict is the ongoing dispute between Israelis and Palestinians, an enduring and explosive conflict. The conflict is
wide-ranging, and the term is also used in reference to the earlier phases of the same conflict, between Jewish and Zionist yishuv and the majority
Arab population living in Palestine under Ottoman or British rule.
It forms part of the wider, and generally earlier, Arab–Israeli conflict. The remaining key issues are: mutual recognition, borders, security, water
rights, control of Jerusalem, Israeli settlements, Palestinian freedom of movement and legalities concerning refugees.
A hallmark of the conflict has been the level of violence witnessed for virtually its entire duration. Fighting has been conducted by regular armies,
paramilitary groups, terror cells and individuals. Casualties have not been restricted to the military, with a large number of fatalities in civilian
population on both sides.

During the period prior to the declaration of israel jews from all over the world came to settle in israel, buying lands from the arabs and building
At some points the palestinain neighbors of those settlements disapproved. I will not go to the politics of this, to avoid straying off the topic of
During that time and until the declaration of israel the jews and the palestinians were attacking and killing each other.
The UN then decided to divide palestine into two, giving the jews the lower half, which included mostly the uninhabited, barren lands of the desert,
the jews accepted, and declared independence. A few hours later iraq, lebanon, syria, jordan and egypt attacked the new state of israel.
During the war the palestinians joined the arab armies and were fighting the israeli army, as a result palestinian villages were attacked and
destroyed, the same went for jewish settlements who were wiped off the face of the earth by the arab army.
The war went on, and more and more palestinians chose to leave their homes as to not get caught in the battle. Some left out of fear of the jews, some
left because they were promised swift victory by arab nations, some were thrown out of their homes, as the civilian population tended to take part in
the fighting, or support the fighting in ways of intelligence, or other forms of aid, which led to jewish casualties.
During this war many civilians were killed by both armies, some as "collateral damage" and some by intentional massacres that occurred, by both the
arab armies, and by small right wing extremists factions within the new-found israeli army.
At the end of the war israel had come out victorious, and many of the palestinians became homeless. Some returned to their homes and still exist today
as arab israeli, others did not want to live under israeli rule, or had no homes to return to.
I would love the delve deeper into the history of israel, but as we're talking about genocide so I will move on to current events.
The situation of the palestinian people has led them to turn to violence instead of a diplomatic solution.
This in turn has led the israeli army to act against them. Again, no politics, let's talk genocide here-
Since the year 2000, 7000 palestinians (civilians and terrorists) out of 3.8 million in gaza and the west bank were killed by the israeli army, this
includes children and women. that's 0.002% of palestinian population.
Reports of IDF brutality and murder rise all the time, some are result of mistakes, some of the actions of terrorists using civilians as human
shields, some due to the complexity of an urban battle zone, and some are the actions of rogue soldiers. I say rogue because it is not allowed, and
No military objective has ever targeted civilians.
That's it. Thank you for reading.
And hope that I wasn't too subjective,
