The 1948 War

  The war in which we have been embroiled since October 2000 is similar to the 1948 War of Independence and the preceding period. In both cases, war erupted when the question of the partition of Eretz Israel into two states ? Jewish and Palestinian - was at stake. In 1947, battles erupted after the UN decision to partition Eretz Israel into two states. In 2002, the war broke out after the Palestinians refused Israel?s offers at Camp David that would have meant dividing the region between both peoples.
