Read the Book!

Abraham and his wife Sarah
Sarah thy wife shall bear thee a son indeed; and thou shalt call his name Isaac: and I will establish my covenant with him for an everlasting covenant and with his seed after him.(Jews)

But being in a hurry Abraham’s first born (Ishmael) was born by way of a house servant.(Arabs)

Being first born the Arabs claim their right to the land.
While Jews claim their right to the land based on GODs covenant.

The biblical story doesn't end with Ishmael and Isaac. One generation later there was competition between the sons of Isaac, Jacob and Esau. Genesis records how the eldest, Esau, sold his birthright to his twin Jacob.
Esau was cheated out of his birthright being the first born.(Easu/ Arab)(Jacob/ Jew)

Really pretty simple but impossible to solve

Both Arab and Jew are sons of Abraham. The Koran contains alternative stories of such biblical notables as Noah, Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Moses, Job, Jonah, Saul, David, Solomon, Mary and Jesus. Muhammad claimed that Islam was a return to the religion of Abraham while Judaism and Christianity were corruptions of this true religion. In Islam's interpretation of God's plan, Ishmael takes on the role of the son of promise.

So when you’re taught from childhood that the Jews stole your land and that the Jews and Christians worship a false GOD. It’s easy to understand the hatred.

I believe in the Bible to a certain degree, but the hate that is generated in that part of the world is unreal. That same kind of hate is coming to this country with so many immigrants coming into this country and refusing to leave their hate and anger back where they come from. It' like yankies coming down here and always saying about different things,,, well back up North we did it this way...pi$$ on that GO BACK IF YOU CAN'T MAKE A CHANGE.

Double that for the immigrants that come here and open up businesses like they did back home and only hire their own kind.

Well the simple answer is most don't, just like most Jewish people don't hate Arabs. The fact of the matter is most people in this world are just trying to get by, though here in the US and other countries we have to rely on media, and obviously violence and conflict sells so that is all you will ever see, its a lot like in the US teen pregnancy, drinking, and hard drug use are down but all you ever hear is about how ruined our youth are.. What goes on in the conflicts in the Middle East is not about religion, culture, etc, those are simply excuses used to fire up extremists on both sides, it's all about political control and land. Unfortunately though this has not stopped people on both sides from embracing racism or anti-semitism in their arguments. On one side you will have people still reciting that "Protocols of Zion" garbage (sadly many so called christians in the US who adamantly defend Israel will talk about how Jews control the worlds money and hollywood 5 minutes later), on the other you have people like Begin who referred to the Palestinians as cockroaches and people like that pastor who wanted to burn the Quran (while I'm all for free speech remember when someone in the US does that, that can be the deciding factor in a kid turning their life to violence as extremists love to prey on people who feel marginalized, look at how many in the US flirted with Fascism and Communism during the Great Depression). Also a factor is the leftover hard feelings from the Cold War and decolonization, while Arab governments should take more steps in constructive engagement, better diplomacy, and disarming any WMD's they have as a first step, the fact that the Israeli government were allies with the Apartheid regime in South Africa (many of whom ironically enough were Nazi sympathizers) and have engaged in assassination (they mistakenly killed innocents who looked Arab going after the Munich terrorists and murdered Canadian engineer Gerald Bull when he wanted to work on Project Babylon for the government of Iraq when they should have taken the approach they did with the Osiraq reactor instead of murdering individuals) has made them quite a pariah country in terms of international law. At the end of the day both sides have overlapping infrastructure and quite a large portion of Israel's legit population are Arab so they are going to have to learn to work together, either have two states with something like a EU style economic and border policy, or do something like Albert Camus proposed during the decolonization of Algeria, have one state with two Autonomous parliaments for everyday governance issues like taxation and infrastructure, and something like the Senate as a national legislature for defence and diplomatic issues, because if it was a "one man, one vote" principal, in a Parliamentary system extremists could never win a big enough block to control the government.
