Please forgive my ignorance, but why are the Israelis and Palestinians at war?

Please explain this like I'm a 2 year old. I'm not that bright. Thanks. Why do the Palestinians feel that Israelis should leave that land?

The Palestinians lost a lot of their land and homes after the end of WWII because 6 million European Jews were exterminated in Germany and the European Jews who were left needed a homeland. The counties that won the war - US and Great Britain primarily - decided that Palestine should be partitioned in a manner that would create a Jewish state. The people who lost their land and homes never accepted this fate and have been fighting for their land and home ever since. It is a great tragedy for both groups and for the world.

I'm not to sure either and you think it would be something they taught in school, since it also effects the rest of the world. I was told it is because Palestinians also believe that Israel is there land since they also claim to be descendants of Abraham. When the state of Israel was established something went on (not sure what) and many left or were forced to leave the land. Since them they have been fighting to get it back.

However i have only been told this and have never looked into it, it would be interesting to know from Israelis and Palestinians that might answer your question.

Currently, Palestinians live in a strip of land on the west coast of Israel called the Gaza strip. There is a fence on the border that separates the Palestinians (Muslims) from the Israelis (Jews). Israel is in complete control of the border and the fuel and other basic necessities of Gaza. Now the Palestinians are resentful of the power Israel has over them and in 2006 voted Hamas into government of Gaza. Hamas is not the government that Israel wants ruling the Palestinians because they believe it is a terrorist organization. When Palestinians get really angry about their situation, groups of them will lob rockets over the border into Israel. I am not sure if Hamas is behind these acts or it is rogue militants. Israel, having close to the best military in the world in terms of weaponry, always retaliates with brute force. Things may calm down for a while, but the hatred and anger is still there and something else will happen to trigger aggressive conflict. On the east side of Israel is the West Bank where another group of Palestinians live. The government there is one in which Israel approves (somewhat) and there is less conflict, but because of religious differences and the concommitant arguments about who is the rightful owners of certain partitions of land (in Jerusalem), it is also problematic.

Good question, btw, and I am glad that you are asking it as so many people don't realize how this small little area can have such an impact on the stability of the entire world.

To put it in a simple way for you. The Jews are greedy and have stolen lots of land from Palestine and like naughty children won't give it back
