  1. People of different ethnic groups and different religions have lived in the tiny country of Israel (also called Palestine) for thousands of years. Jerusalem, its major city, is considered holy by Jews, Christians, and Muslims. Many different foreign nations governed it -- the Ottoman Empire until about 1919 and England from 1919 until 1947.

    After World War II and the Holocaust that killed 6 million Jews, the United Nations decided that the Jews, at long last, needed a country of their own. The UN mandated that Israel be given to the Jews as a Jewish homeland. It also designated certain areas for the Palestinians.

    The Palestinians who are mostly Muslim were furious that their country should be ruled by Jews. With the help of other nations, the Palestinians launched a bitter war in 1967, but were quickly defeated by the Israelis. As a result of that war, Israel took over some of the Palestinian territory.

    Today, many Palestinians and their allies want to force the Jews out of Israel and reclaim their land as Palestine. The Jews believe they should keep their country and live in peace.

  2. And, of course, there is deep seated religious prejudice involved here, the Muslim views as dogma that Israeli Jews are the unfit brothers, lower than dogs, fit to be kin to wild swine.
    Israeli hold little kindly positions toward Gentiles and Moslems, but it is much less than looking forward to killing them to in order to go to heaven.
