The History of the conflict in the Middle East is long and well documented To many biased observers the history of the ArabIsraeli conflict is very one sided with one government or one people causing the continued wars between the neighboring states But as any social scientist will state all international conflicts have more than one side and usually are the result of escalating events surrounding in this case religion and land Thus using this theory as a basis we must assume that the conflict between Israel and its Arab neighbors is more complicated than a partial observer would see This paper will examine the basic factors of Arab involvement and conflict with Israel and the involvement of the United States In 1948 David Ben-Gurion in Tel Aviv read the Declaration of the Establishment of he State of Israel The Arab states saw this as a creation of a Western State backed by the British Empire and thus an imperialistic entity in the Arab homeland Considering the past 20 years of the Middle East was in continual conflict with imperial powers the Arabs were naturally weary and afraid of any new imperialistic powers developing in the Middle East In September 1947 the League of Arab States decided to resist by force the plan for the partition of Palestine into an Arab and a Jewish State and when the Jewish state was created the armies of the various Arab states entered into Palestine to show support against Zionist aggression Since then there have been four major Arab-Israeli wars 1947-49 1956 1967 and 1973 and numerous smaller battles Although Egypt and Israel signed a peace treaty in 1979 hostility between Israel and the rest of its Arab neighbors complicated by the demands of Palestinian Arabs continue even today The first Palestinine war began as a civil conflict between Palestinian Jews and Arabs following the United Nations recommendation of Nov 29 1947 to partition Palestine
