This paper takes a historical look at why Israel received independence and Palestine did not, thereby creating an inevitable conflict which still exists until today.
From the Paper:"The conflict between the Arab and Israeli forces that echoes audibly in today's monumental unrest is one that has persisted through innumerable eras and incarnations. At some points a discourse of political disagreement and at other points, the current historical axis being one of them, a hotbed for military action and unchecked violence, the ideal at the crux of it all is over a claim to the land now known as Israel. Established in 1948 at the behest of the Zionist movement, after centuries of Diaspora, Israel is certainly no less contested now than it was one hundred years ago. This naturally incites a question as to why the Zionists were rewarded for their efforts toward statehood while a Palestinian population was disowned and disregarded for similar desires. While the creation of a Jewish homeland stood as the paramount aim for an inestimable space of time, it was not until the period just after WWI, upon the inception of the British Mandate that the gears began to turn toward an allotment of the land known as Palestine."
