The Israel- Palestine conflict has dominated the political discourse of Middle East. This conflict has produced six wars between two groups of people asserting different national identities. The conflict began as a war on land. In modern times, Israelis have pointed to several events tied to World War I and II to justify the existence of Israel. The present paper highlights the contentious issues in Israel- Palestine conflict and highlights the significance of peace process in Middle East.

Abstract


The Israel- Palestine conflict has dominated the political discourse of Middle East. This conflict has produced six wars between two groups of people asserting different national identities. The conflict began as a war on land. In modern times, Israelis have pointed to several events tied to World War I and II to justify the existence of Israel. The present paper highlights the contentious issues in Israel- Palestine conflict and highlights the significance of peace process in Middle East. It is argued here that peace in Israel- Palestine is a condition for peace in Middle East. This is possible only by initiating a new and concrete peace talks so as to end the deadlock created by mutual misunderstanding and failure of political processes.
