A History of the Israeli/Palestinian Conflict

The history
of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict is elastic; it changes dramatically
depending on who is telling it and where they start the story. Therefore,
it is important to note that a historic timeline of events concerning
this conflict is always difficult to present in an objective manner.
For this reason, as you read through the timeline sections, certain
events include both a Palestinian (in green) and an Israeli (in blue)
perspective.

This timeline was compiled by Negar Katirai while working as a
research associate at the Council on Foreign Relations. Thanks also
to Dr. Mark LeVine, University of California-Irvine, for reviewing
this document.

Most of the information in this timeline is based on the BBC’s
“In
Depth: Middle East Peace Process” Web site
as well as the
“Washington
Post’s War and Peace in the Middle East” Web site
,
the United Nation’s “Question
of Palestine Web site,”
and the U.S. State Department’s
Web site on the Middle
East Peace Process
.

The information on the Israeli perspective was put together using
the Israeli Government’s official Web site, produced by Israel’s
Ministry of Foreign
Affairs
. Information on the Palestinian perspective was compiled
using the Palestinian
National Authority’s official Web site
