Israel/Palestinian Conflict
The Israeli-Palestinian Conflict is one over land. Visiting the region, the hatred is almost palpable. How can such a disdain for another people take place in and around the world's holiest city. Jerusalem is a city worshiped by Christians, Muslims and Jews. Many say this conflict is the root to all Middle East conflict. Will there ever be an end? Should the two groups mix into one country or should they live separately? Walls have been built, graffiti has been sprayed and words have cut silence. No treaty has lasted, bombs have been sent and checkpoints are in place. Who has right to this land? What role and right does the United States play in this long battle? It is up to you to decide.
