  1. The conflict between palestine- israel is very heart breaking to hear and to see as well. The war is leading to serious destructions in the country and as well it is leading to deaths of people,who are no where concerned to it. I would point my view that the two nations to come to a conclusion and make things alright between them and maintain peaceful situations among themselves. Palestine people deserve the right to live. Hence forth,the decision should be made as soon as possible to settle the conflict.

    The democratization of the Palestinian culture through which new valid administration can arise is important. The need of great importance is to manage this conflict as an Israeli-Arab battle as an elective Israel-Palestine. As we’ve seen, war isn’t generally most straightforward among Israel and Palestine anyway moreover with various Arab global areas, Every one of them should participate withinside the exchanges and the absolute last settlement should be determined authoritatively to have the guide of utilizing each positively viewed as one among them related to UN in vogue meeting and wellbeing committee.

  3. India is a follower of peaceful coexistence. It is also a follower of Non Alignment Movement. So even though India receives and provides support to Israel, it would always be on Palestinian side here as it strongly says the land of the Palestine was occupied forcefully.
    Moreover, facing similar problems in its own homeland via Pakistan and China, India would find it difficult to accept forceful occupation of the Jewish territory.

    The conflict of Israel Palestine is something which has do many implications. The problem itself seems to be never ending. After the passing of Oslo Accord ( which was a great achievement indeed) there has never been a way to settle the problem peacefully. The extremities between both of the sides is such that no one wants a liberal solutions…no one want to compromise….
    Expectation of another Oslo Accord….. Let’s see if people are ready to accept this

  5. Every country wants a peaceful situation. Israel-Palestine conflict is heartbreaking and shocking news for the world, which is suffering from Covid-19. Their conflict killed around 270 people including children. Many innocent people suffering due to this violence. This is actually horrible and totally antihuman activity. This conflict can be dismissed by the peaceful approach of authorities but they chose the way of destruction. So all country authorities need to be peaceful and be in the thought of innocent people living in the country.

  6. The 54 year old Palestine-Israel conflict is one of the greatest issues the world is facing. Most of the peace making organisations has attempted and failed to resolve the issue which started by the Israel occupation in the Gaza strip and West Bank. Alliance of Middle East Peace, EcoPeace, Mejdi etc are some of the important peace making policy groups regarding this issue. There are several ongoing legal issues regarding the ownership and property rights other than the conflict itself. My opinion regarding the solution to the issue is a two-state solution. Being such a prolonged problem, a one state solution may lead to more problems in future and the two state solution put forward by the Palestinians is to save their identity and culture which might help to resolve the refugee issues as well.

  7. The stand of India in this conflict matters a lot since Israel has been on good terms with our country. The Israeli-Palestine conflict leaves a startling effect on the geopolitics of the world and while Israel remains to have an upper hand in this war, it is far from over looking at the present scenario. The recent Israel-Gaza violence claimed more than 200 lives and while both the sides portrayed themselves as a winner here, humanity lost.
    Peace talks to resolve the issue have been for more than 20 years but given no results. The solution here lies when both the parties strike a peace deal between them so that no more casualties happen. The people of Palestine deserve respect and have every right to reside in the country and not with the constant fear of an attack by Israeli armed forced. The new Prime Minister of Israel Mr. Naftali Bennett will have to work tirelessly in order to resolve this century old issue.

    Hearing and seeing the violence between Palestine and Israel is heartbreaking. The conflict is wreaking havoc on the country, as well as killing those who have nothing to do with it. I believe that the two countries should reach an agreement and set things right between themselves in order to maintain peaceful relations. People in Palestine have earned the right to life. The choice to resolve the disagreement should be taken as quickly as feasible from now on.

  9. The Israel-Palestine conflict has been ongoing since years. These years have witnessed a number of clashes and violence among the parties involved. Even many countries who are not a part of the conflict have tried to help in resolving the issue. Despite all the developments in the matter till date, the issue still remains unresolved. The matter is so fragile that there is no immediate final resolution possible. What we can hope is that all the parties to the matter give their dedication in line of permanent dispute settlement, for conflict is benefiting none.

    Throughout history, war has destroyed several lives and families. It has taken away the right of people to live with dignity. The ongoing conflict between Israel and Palestine is no less than a war. Several people have been wounded and there has been a greater damage to the humane principles of both Judaism and Islam. There has been an escalation of violence between Israel and Palestine which required international concern and calls for some action. Both the nations should resort to peaceful ways of resolving of their issue. While security could be assured to Israel, refugees in Palestine could be given back their “right to return” and own property. There is a need to find a solution to the border issues and claim over Jerusalem. Moreover, international organizations like the UN should play a key role in finding an answer and putting an end to these conflicts.

  11. The tussle between Israel and Palestine has been going on for the past 54 years, but the recent series of events which unfolded in the light of the Israel-Palestine conflict are indeed heart-breaking. There are plenty of issues which need to be addressed quickly. The condition of Palestinian refugees, the fate of Jewish settlements in the West Bank, the political divide of Jerusalem, and the most important of the lot is the separate identity of Palestine as a state. Many innocent civilians have lost their lives, which is a great loss to humanity. The most effective way to solve this situation would be Peace talks, violence is not the answer to everything. Even though India has been constantly backed by Israel, taking a back seat and acting according to the situation should be the game plan of India, so that chances of any further conflict can be minimised.

  12. Israel- Palestine is a 54-year-old most enduring conflict of the world. the conflict is heartbreaking and there is loss of lives on both sides. Tensions are currently high between Israel and Palestinians living in East Jerusalem, Gaza and the West Bank. there are two sides of the situation Israel says they are just protecting themselves from Palestinian violence while on other hand Palestine says that they are just protecting the identity of their country. Both the countries need to choose a peaceful way to end this conflict between them as violence is never an answer. and if the conflict is not solved then it would lead to another round of attacks which would not be beneficial for any of them. But lets see what happens in the future.

    Israel is the world’s only Jewish state, located just east of the Mediterranean Sea. Palestinians, the Arab population that hails from the land Israel now controls, refer to the territory as Palestine, and want to establish a state by that name on all or part of the same land. Though both Jews and Arab Muslims date their claims to the land back a couple thousand years, the current political conflict began in the early 20th century. Jews fleeing persecution in Europe wanted to establish a national homeland in what was then an Arab- and Muslim-majority territory in the Ottoman and later British Empire. The Arabs resisted, seeing the land as rightfully theirs. An early United Nations plan to give each group part of the land failed, and Israel and the surrounding Arab nations fought several wars over the territory.
    The primary approach to solving the conflict today is a so-called “two-state solution” that would establish Palestine as an independent state in Gaza and most of the West Bank, leaving the rest of the land to Israel. Though the two-state plan is clear in theory, the two sides are still deeply divided over how to make it work in practice. The alternative to a two-state solution is a “one-state solution,” wherein all of the land becomes either one big Israel or one big Palestine. Most observers think this would cause more problems than it would solve, but this outcome is becoming more likely over time for political and demographic reasons.

    The Israel-Palestine crisis or conflict is an age-old tussle for power, identity and recognition of two groups of people, i.e., the Jews and the Arabs over a piece of land between River Jordan and the Mediterranean Sea. This conflict is also known as the- “World’s most intractable conflict” as the disputed land is claimed by the Jews as their biblical prerogative and by the Palestinians, who strive for self-determination. Both Israel and Palestine hold competing claims to the city of Jerusalem, which is considered Holy by three communities- Jews, Muslims and Christians. Israel regards the whole Jerusalem as their capital, whereas the Palestinians insist on their future capital to be East Jerusalem. This conflict between the two-ethnic group of people begun around thousand years ago. The contemporary political feud began in the early 20th century. In the past the territory in contention was part of the Ottoman Empire and later was occupied by the British. Israel is the world’s only Jewish state, whereas the Palestinians, who are mainly Arabs, refer this territory as Palestine and yearns for developing a state by that name on the same controversial piece of land. The Jews evading persecution in Europe desired to establish their national homeland in that territory the Arab-Muslims are in majority. The Arabs resisted against the Jews and claimed their right over that disputed soil. Since then, Israel gradually occupied most of that land and the Palestinians are bound to only two regions, i.e., the West Bank and the Gaza Strip. Lately the issue is again in the news due to rocket attacks propelled by Hamas (An Islamist fundamentalist party based in Gaza) on the territories of Israel. In retaliation, the Gaza Strip was being targeted with Israeli airstrikes. The conflict has resulted in loss of lives from both sides. The issue needs to be tackled at the earliest with immediate International intervention.
    A ONE-STATE SOLUTION/ SINGLE STATE SOLUTION can be recommended to resolve the Israel-Palestine Conflict. The territories of Israel & Palestine should unite to become a single country with a Secular Democracy, wherein the Israelis, Palestinians, Jews, Arab-Muslims, Christians and others can co-exist. People from all communities and ethnicities should enjoy equal rights and freedoms in the country.
    Obviously, the integration of both territories would be challenging, but not impossible. Creating awareness among people regarding benefits of such policy; establishing trust and cooperation among the people; providing regulations and putting sanctions on the extremist and fundamentalist group of people propagating violence- are some of the important steps that are needed to be enacted.
    To conclude it can be said that- for a long-term perspective, a One-State/ Single-State Solution is indeed the ultimate solution to put an end to the age-old tussle for land, power and identity between Israel & Palestine. Also, most importantly, it would bring about peace and harmony among the people of these two territories in dispute.

    Israel must charge violence and aggressive hatred speech, no trouble the source, and mete out disinterested acceptability to all. Israeli officials give a special liability to combat ethnic hatred emanating from the Jewish greatly justified and to compose guaranteed Palestinian citizens are secluded from in cooperation keep watch over and civilian violence in the consistent tactic that Jewish citizens are. Palestinians leaders in Israel take part in a analogy obligation contained by their have communities. scores of around the globe, and outstandingly in the U.S. and Europe, be inflicted with been astounded by the imagery of Jewish mob violence, but the sentiments they represent did not bounce up overnight. They experience lengthy been sophisticated and authorized at the maximum levels of the state. Tamping down ethnic encouragement is a topic of self-preservation for the Jewish majority, as the alternative, a steady acceleration of civil strife, is before now on the horizon.

    The israeli palestinian conflict is one of the world’s most enduring conflicts, with the israeli occupation of the west bank and the gaza strip reaching 54 years of conflict. Various attempts have been made to resolve the conflict as part of the israeli palestinian peace process. Public declarations of claims to a jewish homeland in palestine , including the 1897, first zionist congress and the 1917 Balfour Declarations, created early tension in the region. The violence of the conflict in a region rich in sites of historic,cultural and religious interest worldwide, has been the subject of numerous international conferences dealing with historical rights, security issues and human rights and has been a factor hampering tourism in and general access to areas that are hostly contested. In 2007, the majority of both israelis and palestinians according to a number of polls preferred the two-state solution over any other solution as a means of resolving the conflict.
    Within Israeli and palestinian society, the conflict generates a wide variety of views and opinions . This highlights the deep divisions which exists not only between israelis and palestinian but also within each society.

    The fight for land procurement has always created conflicts among various countries, and the same has been the case with both Israel and Palestine. The issue between both the countries have been prevalent since a very long period of time, but recently the tension between both the countries emerged when the Palestinians received a threat to evict from East Jerusalem and handover their lands to the Jews. The Hamas which is known for ruling in Palestine launched rockets and other explosives on the Israel territory, and the Israeli’s retaliated by conducting airstrikes which worsened the situation. In my opinion the need of the hour for both the governments is to understand the severity of the situation and form a peace pact amongst each other so that several lives can be protected. In the current scenario both the countries are neglecting the concerns of the people and instead are looking forward to acquiring the territory which is a huge concern. The time has come for both the countries to negotiate and think about forming a one state policy where both the countries reunite for the betterment of its citizens, though it can be argued that this is indeed a very difficult task, but this is the only long term solution which both the countries can adopt to avoid the conflict that is taking place.

  19. NITYA KARTHIKEYAN

    I completely agree with the balancing approach of our nation. India, by maintaining its customary support for the Palestinian cause, India tried a careful balancing act. The balancing did not appear to be well received by the Israelis. Israel’s prime minister thanked 25 countries for their support, but made no mention of India. Without abandoning its new buddy Israel, India reiterated its support for the Palestinian cause. At the UN Security Council discussion on the Gaza situation, India was careful not to offend Israel’s sensibilities. The balancing did not appear to be well received by the Israelis.

  20. Britain took control of the area known as Palestine after the ruler of that part of the Middle East, the Ottoman Empire, was defeated in World War One.
    The land was inhabited by a Jewish minority and Arab majority.
    Tensions between the two peoples grew when the international community gave Britain the task of establishing a “national home” in Palestine for Jewish people.
    For Jews it was their ancestral home, but Palestinian Arabs also claimed the land and opposed the move.

A Haganah (Jewish Underground) fighter just before the start of the Israeli War of Independence 1948. Between the 1920s and 1940s, the number of Jews arriving there grew, with many fleeing from persecution in Europe and seeking a homeland after the Holocaust of World War Two.
    Violence between Jews and Arabs, and against British rule, also grew. In 1947, the UN voted for Palestine to be split into separate Jewish and Arab states, with Jerusalem becoming an international city. That plan was accepted by Jewish leaders but rejected by the Arab side and never implemented.

    The Israeli-Palestinian conflict has resulted in a disaster for human rights. By doing so, 12 million people face the threat: fear of encroachment, migration, or dismissal; fear of rockets and missiles; fear of delegitimization; fear of murder; fear of government bodies on both sides using a perpetual state of emergency to reinforce anti-democratic practises; fear of retribution, whether from the “other side” or conflicts between militias or political organisations on their side; and, most all, the fear of never being able to live a regular life. So, let’s be serious. Netanyahu is unfit to serve as Israel’s prime minister. His de facto refusal of the United Nations-backed two-state solution, his guidance for the confiscation or cession of Palestinian land in the West Bank and East Jerusalem, his unfair attitude toward Israeli Arabs, his forgiveness of neo-fascist spiritual and far-right settler groups, and the officer-involved anger at Jerusalem’s al-Aqsa mosque have all exacerbated the conflict.

  22. Samyukta P Menon

    Israel Palestine conflict was one the most enduring conflicts and heaviest after the Gaza war. When Ottoman Empire was defeated in the First World War, the Palestine control over by the British. This particular land consists of both Jewish minority and Arab majority. The conflicts started to arise when Britain established a national home for Jewish people in Palestine. Palestine Arabs also claimed that land. Few years later, the number of Jews grew, which ultimately lead to violence between Arabs and Jews.
    It is important to note that both Israel and Palestine compete over the city of Jerusalem. Israel wanted to consider Jerusalem as their capital, whereas Palestine wants East Jerusalem as their future capital. This conflict began many years ago. Later, Arabs resisted against the Jews and claimed their right over the area. Israel then slowly started to occupy most of that land which threw Palestine to two main regions, West Bank and Gaza Strip.
    Now this is what happens. Hamas launched rocket attack on May 10 on the territories of Israel. In revenge, Israel attacked the Gaza strip. This conflict led to lose of many precious lives.
    Now what is to be done should be looked into. They must end all their hatred and come together to form a Peaceful Secular democracy

    The Israeli-Palestinian Conflict can be traced back in 1947 upon the announcement of the 1947 UN Partition Plan that would relinquish British control over the Gaza region to the United Nations. Globally, the Israel-Palestine conflict stands as a major issue, specifically when looking at the relations between the West and the Islamic world. It also remains a strategic issue and a protracted war undermining peace, security and political stability in the modern history of the Middle East, apparently since the aftermath of World War II.
    In May 2021, the confrontation in Israel-Palestine again assumed center stage with many people wondering if this conflict would ever end. The human costs have been very high. The conflict needs to be resolved as soon as possible.
    The issues behind this conflict are not based on religion; ethnicity, race and even land are not the main problem. The problem is political, both the country are badly led and governed. Each day, shared hopes of peace, security and prosperity are betrayed by blinkered politicians. Both countries need new leaders, infused with a vision for peace, not war. A truce is a necessary first step which is required quintessentially. It must be the moment when a new, determined international diplomatic drive begins for a permanent two-state settlement that is beneficial for the people of both states.

  24. It is one of the world’s most enduring conflicts, the conflict has its roots from late19th century and early 20th century. India, the United States and several other countries have called for calm and restraint amid escalating tensions and violence between Israel and Palestinian militants.
    The conflict linked to the age-old tussle over identity and land starting with Jerusalem.
    In the first Arab Israel war of 1948, the Israelis captured the western half of the city, and Jordan took the eastern part which Israel later captured and annexed.
    Since then, Israel has expanded settlements in East Jerusalem. The Palestinians want to make East Jerusalem the capital of their yet to be formed state. Israel sees the whole city as its “unified, eternal capital”, whereas the Palestinian leadership denies for any compromise unless East Jerusalem is recognised as the capital of future Palestinian state.
    The Palestinians are facing the threat of eviction from Sheikh Jarrah, a neighbourhood in east Jerusalem. Their land is to be given to the Jewish settlers. Moreover, the Israeli armed forces have recently attacked the Al-Aqsa Mosque ahead of a march by Zionist nationalists. The Al Aqsa Mosque is the third holiest shrine for Islam after Mecca and Medina. It created a fear for the followers, all over the region and the radicals began to call for defending the Al Aqsa Mosque. Also, earlier this year (2021), the Central Court in East Jerusalem upheld a decision to evict four Palestinian families from their homes in Sheikh Jarrah in favor of Jewish settlers. The issue remains unresolved and potentially inflammable.
    The current outbreak of violence is the most severe one since 2014 involving the rocket-firing by the Palestinians and the air-strikes conducted by Israelis in retaliation.

    The situation on the ground is really bad, the tensions are escalating and looking at the complex issues involved, the issue does not seem to be getting solved in the near future. Peace talks have been taking place for at least 2 decades but in vain. However, India’s stand still remains for peace talks. Both sides have to come for a possible solution which is in mutual interest but that can happen only through talks and not bloodshed.

  25. Shreya Bhukhmaria

    The sudden rekindling of the Israel-Palestine conflict, and the ensuing horrors, is a shameful reminder of the international community’s utmost criminal neglect of the crisis. There have been no “substantive” peace talks for more than a decade. Trump’s “deal of the century” has qualified to be a cruel sham. Efforts now under way to engineer a ceasefire, or what is called a “sustainable calm”, amount to applying a sticking plaster to a deeply felt, long-festering wound. This story of neglect, cementing in place injustices and inequities dating back to the 1948 Palestine war, made a new explosion of violence all but inevitable. It has played into the hands of extremists on both sides who seek their own victories, not mutual peace. It threatens the future of Israel and Palestine and regional stability. In the end, issues of religion, ethnicity, race and even land are not the main problem, the fundamental conflict arises when Israelis and Palestinians are shockingly badly led which is a reality today.. Each day, shared hopes of peace, security and prosperity are betrayed by blinkered politicians and ideologues who prioritise their own interests and prejudices at the cost of thier nation’s unity and geopolitical stand. Both sides need fresh leaders, infused with a vision for peace, not war.

  26. UTKARSH KANDIL

    As it is very true that many people lost their lives in Israel due to the attack from HAMAS. We have to understand that more violence is not the answer of violence even it can make the condition worsen. As, it becomes danger for the peace, security and relations between nations in the world. The politicians of israel priming the people which big reason of beginning. As we know some kids also losing their even do not any interference in the conflict. As, this is the time that UN has to come forward and to resolve this issue. In this conflict both Israel and Palestine have their arguements to prove themselves right, so in this UN have to come forward to solve.

  27. Elizabeth K J

    The recent conflict between Israel and Palestine has once again shed light on an unsettled catastrophy. For years international communities, UN and other bodies have focused on a two state settlement to instill peace and order by constituting two sovereign states. Ever since the Oslo Accords were signed there has been little progress in the two state solution. The Palestine side has accepted the idea of two states but the fraction of Israel wants to maintain this status quo of occupation and policies to extend it’s territories further. The solution is challenged by various hindrances like increasing illegal settlements in Israel occupied territories of Jerusalem and westbank. The global pressure on Israel has prevented it from completely banishing Palestine but this would not last long if we couldn’t find a permanent settlement. The only solution is to liberate Palestine into an independent state and demarcate it’s territories from Israel. This is only possible by loosening the reins of Israel over Jerusalem and Western bank. The international communities have to persuade the states to facilitate a permanent settlement of the issue and protect rights of citizens.

  28. The Israel – Palestinian conflict has taken more innocent lives than one could count. Both the Jews and the Islamic community have very strong religious views, which the political parties use to their advantage. Right from when Israel and Palestine were given separate territories to the war between them, the only people who suffered are the innocent people. The top class people, the bureaucrats, the one who want war are not the ones who go through the pain; it is the innocent lives that suffer the most. It is true that Israel, after capturing territories of Palestine, gave birth to terrorism and violence in the Palestinians as the need for independence grew among them, which is pretty natural too. One can only suffer so much of oppression. Especially, after the people of Israel started to move into Palestine to settle and Israeli guards came to protect those settlers is when hopes started to really thin out for the Palestinians to ever have independence. Right from 1987, when the Palestinians decided to start protesting for being oppressed and Israel answered with heavy force, the same thing has been going on till date. Back then couple thousands of Israelis and Palestinians died and the same thing is happening again, innocent people are dying and the politicians are just do not care.
