Considering the UN 242 and 338 resolutions in 1946 deeming to create a resolution of which there shall be partition of territory between Palestine and Israel whereby each country can claim sovereignty and independence.. the Palestinians declined and honestly speaking greed came into place wanting the whole territory ( You could have lived in peace having at least half of your country instead of fighting all these years and you barely own 5 % of your land).. its a never ending fight until Palestinians are aware that a mutual and codependent country with Israel is not such a bad thing especially with their outstanding government and laws.. lets learn to learn from one another and not fight over possessions.. *apologies if the truth offends anyone1

That is a topic that one cannot go into deeply enough in an opinion, but I will start a few basics. The land was inhabited by the Palestinians during WWII, but they were basically people without a country. There was no country, no government, etc. At the same time, Jews were being persecuted and slaughtered. Not just by the Nazis, but by other countries as well. So the United Nations looked for a place where they could be placed and have a homeland where they would be free to live as a nation. They agreed on the area they are in now because it was where they had been thousands of years ago, and there was not a country there then.
But even without a country, per se, there were people there, many who lived on land their ancestors had live on going way back. Those people were forced out of their homes to make room for Jewish people who had no claim to the land. And while Jerusalem is extremely important in Jewish history, it is also extremely important in Muslim history. So the solution that was so simple in some ways, is so very complicated in others.
Surrounding countries held the same or similar religious feelings, and sided with the Palestinians to the point of arming them and joining them in trying to force out the Jews. But is so doing, they opened up a can of worms for themselves. The Palestinians and their allies aligned themselves to go in and wipe out Israel, and were able to exert enough influence to keep countries like the USA from directly supporting Israel. But support came indirectly, and even as the Palestinians were at the borders set to wipe out a much smaller and poorly supplied Israeli force, Israel did not wait for them to start the shooting and took the war to them. The six-day war amazed the Palestinians as well as most of the rest of the world. Israel went up against a much larger and more strongly backed force and beat the crap out of them. At that time they kept a presence in some of the land they took to maintain a buffer.
Since that time, the Palestinians have been lobbing rockets into Israel, and Israel has been taking the war back to them. Israel has overstepped what it should be doing by creating new Jewish settlements in the occupied lands, but the Palestinians continue to provoke them with missiles into Israel.
Both sides have ancestral and religious history in the area. Forcing the Palestinians out provoked them, but not accepting that is the best solution just keeps the war going.0
