Israel Formation Day: The Birth Of Israel And Reason Behind Israel Palestine Conflict

Birth Of Israel And Reason Behind Israel Palestine Conflictvia

Every year, May 15 is Israel Formation Day. In 1907, Chaim Weizmann, a prominent chemist and Jewish leader, visited Palestine. He laid out a company in the Jaffa region, laying the foundation for what might become Israel. By 1910, a Jewish National Fund was set up to buy land for Jewish settlements in Palestine.


Land And Displacement

This land-buying initiative drove around 60,000 Palestinians away from their homes in Marj Bin Amer. Despite the kickback, Jewish migration to Palestine went on consistently. This process set up huge changes in the region.


The Role Of World War I

The end of the Word War I saw the breakdown of the Ottoman Empire, and Britain got control of Palestine. The British government’s Balfour Declaration of 1917 upheld a national home for Jews in Palestine, essentially propelling the Zionist movement’s objectives.


Creation Of Israel

Israel State is Born

On May 14, 1948, David Ben-Gurion declared the foundation of Israel. This declaration followed the UN’s plan to partition Palestine into Jewish and Arab states. Immediately, adjoining Middle Eastern countries declared war, yet Israel arose triumphant.


Post-War Developments

The aftermath of World War II and the Holocaust saw a huge influx of Jewish refugees into Israel. The Israeli government authorized the Law of Return in 1950, giving Jews worldwide the right to move to Israel. Different operations were attempted to bring persecuted Jews to the new state.


The West Bank And Gaza

The creation of Israel displaced numerous Palestinians, fueling the ongoing Israel-Palestine conflict. The West Bank, presently under partial Palestinian Authority Control, was captured by Israel from Jordan in the 1967 Six-Day War. The region has a mix of Palestinians, Jewish settlers, and other groups.
