Israel’s Formation and Enduring History


Nearly the size of the Indian state of Chattisgarh, Israel is a small country in the Middle East.

The text claims that Abraham, who is regarded as the father of both Judaism and Islam, is intrinsically related to the state of Israel.

Tensions between Jews and Arab Muslims have persisted in Israel for a long time. The two clans have been engaged in a complex rebellion since ancient times, when they both lived in the region and revered it.

Muslims and Jews both worship the city of Jerusalem.

Did Israel, then, exist in any capacity before 1948?

Yes, but before 1948, Israel did not exist as a state. The UN and the British agreed that a planned nation would be established, but they disagreed on the best way to accomplish it fairly.

Let’s examine the several rationales behind Israel’s formation as a distinct state:

First, historically speaking, Jews have been at a disadvantage due to their lack of own nation.

Eupore was not willing to give away any land to the Jews.

At the start of the Cold War, a western-style administration in the area suited the interests of Europe and US.

Whence did Israel first appear on the map?

On May 14, 1948, David Ben-Gurion, the leader of the Jewish Agency, declared the creation of the State of Israel.

That same day, US President Harry S. Truman recognized the new state.

On November 29, 1947, the United Nations decided to divide British Mandatory Palestine into Jewish and Arab states; however, the Arab governments opposed the decision. After Israel was created, their disagreement sparked a war with it.

Israel increased the area that the UN had given it during the eight-month conflict as more than 760,000 Palestinians fled. Egypt captured the coastal Gaza Strip, while Jordan seized control of the West Bank, including east Jerusalem.

How did history make it possible for it to exist?

Fall of the Ottoman Empire The Ottoman Empire occupied the area, which is now Israel, from 1517 until 1917.

They did not only control over the Israelite territory, but also whole of West Asia. However, the Ottoman Empire fell in 1918, and World War I came to a close, altering the geopolitical landscape of West Asia.

Afterwards, in 1917, British Foreign Secretary Arthur James Balfour sent a letter of intent endorsing the creation of a Jewish state.

Following the fall of the Ottoman Empire, Palestine was ruled by Great Britain until 1947, when Israel gained its independence
