Why has the Arab-Israeli conflict been so persistent? What religious and cultural factors have contributed to the persistent state of unrest in the Middle East and, in particular, in what some people refer to as the Holy Land?
The Arab-Israeli conflict
One of the issues that date back to time is the unstable relationship between Arab and Israel. Not only does a conflict lies between the nation and its people, but also researchers who address the issue to be about land or religion.
Despite of a presence of strong militarism, cultural factors has broadly affected the Middle East. The domination of Moslems over infidel Jews has also contributed towards maintaining the conflict. As stated by Fraser (2015), Clash with the rising Zionist enemies affected survival of Arab as a nation. Further, the spread of Muslim ideology in contest with the prevailing cultural trends adds up as negativity. The difference in mythology of violent groups, Christians and other sectors has lead to elimination of the powerless communities like the Lebanese Christians from their own nation. In order to regain position and maintain their individual beliefs, Arabs have been in a constant fight in their world. The immoral views of the intruders in the Holy Land have provoked religious controversies for expanding delegations.
The most powerful party in the country, Likud emphasizes the Biblical possession of Israel. Additionally, the Muslim also fights for right to that province by following their holy Quran. According to Brower & Sanders (2013), building of holy sites and Islamic benchmarks such as the Temple Mount and Al-Aqsa Mosque against the lawful successors of Jerusalem has resulted in wars and conflict in the Middle East. Further, overpower of Muslims on Islamic waqf and their peculiar teachings have caused great harm to the country and to its people.
