This paper looks at the history of the State of Israel since its establishment in 1948 and the tensions it has since created in the Middle East. It examines the causes of conflict such as the division of Jerusalem by the U.N in 1949 and looks at the different Arab groups that have since formed for the purpose of countering Israeli actions and push for the destruction of the State of Israel. It recounts the main events leading up to and during the regional wars of 1956 and 1967 and the peace process between Israel and the Palestinians.
From the Paper:"It was during this period that different Arab groups formed for the purpose of countering Israeli actions and to push for the destruction of the state of Israel. The Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) was formed in 1965 (Herzog 146-147). The groundwork had been laid in 1964 at the first Arab summit meeting to give the Palestinians an organization of their own, but in fact the emerging organization was under the control of Egypt. Egyptian President Gamel Abdel Nasser kept the organization away from guerrilla actions against Israel because he, more than any other Arab leader, had reason to respect Israel's power after his experience in 1956. There was support for his position--a secret study commissioned during the 1964 Arab summit showed that it would take the Arabs at least until 1969 to reach a level of military strength equal to that of Israel (Herzog 147). The Palestinians were not happy at having to wait for so long to get their land back, and a small group formed under the leadership of Yasser Arafat under the name Fatah."
