Would an end to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict end the Israeli-Arab conflict?

  • Yes, an end to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict would end the Israeli-Arab conflict.

    Yes, I believe that an end to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict would end the Israeli-Arab conflict. Since the Israeli-Arab conflict stems from Israel and Palestine's conflict over their "holy land", if the Israeli-Palestinian conflict should come to an end, it would definitely end the Israeli-Arab conflict because it would resolve their dispute between the land and thus ease tensions in the entire region.

  • Palestine, Hamas Fuel Terrorist Trade

    Palestine and Hamas fuel the terrorist movement in the Middle East by trying to rise up against Israel. When Israel makes peace with those usurped when the country was founded in 1947, then the rest of the Middle East will be at peace with the existence of a Jewish state. We can't go back and take away Israel. Its formation, borne out of the Holocaust, was a mistake in retrospect. However, Jews and Muslims simply must learn to get along. It starts with Palestine.

  • Not Gonna Happen

    Doubtful.

    I really don't think an end to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict would end the broader Israeli-Arab conflict. The Palestinians make a convenient excuse to continue the conflict, but, the truth is, the Middle East is a dangerous place without strong traditions of peace and democracy, and everyone has a chance of fighting with everyone pretty much constantly. Iraq fought Iran, Syria fought Lebanon, and so on. The broader violence isn't going to end even if this one conflict does.

  • No, but it's a start.

    The conflict between Arabs and Jews is a longstanding one that is unlikely to be solved anytime soon because of the differences in culture and religion of people living in the same region. However, much of the escalated rhetoric comes from the conflict over Palestine, and finding a solution to that will show that people can live side by side without constantly threatening to kill each other.
