The conflict between Israel and Palestine burst out in the beginning of the 20th century and lasts till the present day. However, the situation seems to be getting hopeful: responding to a weakening tendency in Palestinian violence and, on the other hand, growing security and economic cooperation between the Palestinian and Israeli Authority, the military of Israel has destroyed over 120 checkpoints in 2010 and even plans to disengage from the major population areas of Palestine. Moreover, the terrorist activity in the area of the West Bank has decreased by 97% today in comparison to violence in 2002. Palestinian-Israeli efforts in the area of the West Bank have significantly increased confidence of investors and theeconomy ofPalestine rose up to 6.8% in 2009. The permission for Jewish tourists to visit the cities of the West Bank area as an effort to increase the Palestinian economy show the improvement (Isseroff, n.d.).
Of course, the best way to stop the conflict would be to recognize the rights of each country and permit people to finally live good lives. However, the religious issues, as well as the longevity of the problem still make the situation very difficult and even small alterations for better do not bring long-term results, as any minor complication makes the conflict burst out anew. Moreover, many people view the activities in the Middle East through the prism of needs of the Jewish people, and little recognize that the Palestinians are also people. To preserve “Israel as the national homeland of the Jewish people” can be a very risky action that may entail many negative consequences. Many political analysts agree on the thought that the Jewish people suffered through many years not because they have to become the oppressive power and a permanent occupier over the other nation, making its people feel the way the Israeli felt.
In conclusion, I would like to state that whatever the conflict is, and no matter how much it lasts; there will be an end to it one day. The point to ask is whether this end will be favorable for both of the countries or no. As in any other field of human relationship, compromises and tight cooperation are vital, without them no peace, no effective collaboration, and no life can be obtained.
