They continue this on and off relationship fighting over control.
|1920 Mandate of Palestine held by British|
The PLO was a rebellious group against the UN dictum of accepting Israel as a nation in the Middle East once again. It was created by the Arab League with Yasser Arafat at the helm. Arafat was not an Arab born in Palestine, but someone born in Egypt. It was officially established in 1964 when a covenant was adopted equating the borders of their plan of a Palestine State with the Palestine of the British Mandate which included the STATE OF ISRAEL!. There was no plan of a 2 state solution. They intended to take everything. They still do! Fatah is again in bed with Hamas.
The Arab League had set up terrorist groups in Syria, Jordan, Lebanon and Iraq. Their host countries gave them the support they needed. They included groups like the "Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine" run by George Habash, and the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine" run by Nayef Hawatmeh. These groups developed after the 6 Day War since such a war that lasted from June 5th to June 11th in 1967 with Syria, Egypt and the Soviet Union spreading false reports to the world that the Israeli forces were on the Syrian frontier and they weren't. Even the UN countered their report that no such concentrations existed. Egypt had reported these lies so they could use the pretext for concentrating the bulk of its army in the Sinai. They had stationed there 90,000 men and 900 tanks. Then Egypt demanded that the UN Emergency Force withdraw. They were the barrier between Egypt and Israel, and they complied with Egypt! Egypt then closed the Staits of Tiran to all going to Israel AND THEN THEY CALLED FOR WAR!
EGYPT led their team of Arab states who had formed a war pact against Israel. Armies of JORDAN, IRAQ and SYRIA concentrated their forces along the frontiers with Israel.

ON JUNE 29, 1967, THE ISRAEL GOVERNMENT FORMALLY UNITED THE 2 SECTIONS OF THE CITY AND THE BARRIERS THAT HAD DIVIDED THEM WERE REMOVED. THE POPULATION OF THE EASTERN PORTION OF THE CITY-INCLUDING 139,600 MOSLEMS AND CHRISTIANS, HAVE BEEN INCORPORATED INTO THE TOTAL POPULATION OF 493,500 IN 1990.
How did such a teeny country as Israel win a massive war when 4 large Arab states had attacked them together? Obama has been trying to change the outcome for the Arabs since then in pushing Netanyahu to go back to 67 "lines."

Zionism comes from the word, Zion. Zion was the word the Prophets used for Jerusalem. It's a spiritual symbol to Jews. Back in the Maccabean times, Mt. Zion was identified with the Temple Mount and the City of David (Jerusalem) together. The Maccabean times goes back to Judah, son of Mattathias, a military leader of the revolt against Syria in 168 BCE. It also refers to the Hasmonean dynasty as a whole. This is the period we remember during Chanukah, our December holiday that so often is close to the Christian Christmas. To be Zionistic is to accept the idea that Jews are finally getting their 2,000 year old prayers answered for the return to Israel after having lost Jerusalem in 70 CE. This is an event prophecized by prophets and has come true. As we see, many have not accepted it. Thus we see groups like the PLO, Fatah and Hamas. Yes, I believe Israel had been aided by our higher power. They have seen it happen over and over again since its conception once more in 1948.
After the Six Day War led by Yasser Arafat, The PLO went on a program of terror inside Israel and around the world. Arafat supported Saddam Husseini in the 1991 Gulf War.

Since 1974 they have held Observer Status in the UN, giving them power. The PLO was considered by the United States and Israel to be a terrorist organization until the Madrid Conferencein 1991.
In 1993, the PLO recognized Israel's right to exist in peace, accepted UN Security Council resolutions 242 and 338, and rejected "violence and terrorism"; in response, Israel officially recognized the PLO as the representative of the Palestinian people. Now they have brought it back. Over these past years, the PLO has carried out thousands of attacks against Israeli and others around the world, including the 1st airplane hijackings. It was Fatah in 1972 who carried out the Munich Massacre of 11 members of the Israeli Olympic Team. They are now practing was games in another planned attack on Israel.
Palestinian Authority, President Mahmoud Abbas, held a rare meeting with the heads of rival party Hamas in Qatar on Thursday, in direct talks aimed at ending years of hostility between the two movements.
Ever since their group picture, they have been at odds with each other, which
is why Israel can't get along with them. They can't get along with each other past the sweets table!
This is the typical reason why individual countries in the Middle East had been fighting against each other for years. They fought for power. A state of Palestine next door to Israel is
to be something fought over by these rival terrorists. Both want the same thing: Israel's land.
The ongoing attack of Hamas against Israel: "Israel Air Force (IAF) aircraft attacked Hamas terror targets in the Gaza Strip on Monday, October 24, 2016 in response to a rocket fired by Palestinian terrorists at Israel’s civilian population earlier in the day. Israel has vowed to answer rocket attacks thusly.
