Hatred Between Israelis and the Palestinians

The fear, suspicion and hatred between the Palestinians and the
Israelis are present because of many causes, both short term and long
term. Both the Israelis and the Palestinians believe they have cause
to hate each other.

One of the earliest long-term events that contribute to the current
hostility is the Deir Yassin massacre in 1948-9. The Deir Yassin
massacre was caused by Operation Dalet, which was launched by the
Haganah, in an attempt to split the Arab states by capturing villages
in between Jaffa and Jerusalem. In the massacre at Deir Yassin, 250
civilians were killed, consisting of men, women and children. This
massacre started the Palestinian refugee problem, which still exists
now. Evidence suggests that the exodus was caused by panic attacks.
Menachim Begin, leader of the Irgun which carried out the massacre
described how the "Arabs throughout the country, induced to believe
wild tales of 'Irgun butchery', were seized with limitless panic and
started to flee"(Conflict in Palestine Textbook). Many accounts state
that panic caused by the massacre spread throughout Palestine. An
Israeli writing in 1964 described the situation;

"An uncontrolled panic spread through all Arab quarters, the Israelis
brought up jeeps with loudspeakers which broadcast recorded 'horror
sounds'." (Conflict in Palestine Textbook)

700,000 Palestinians moved to refugee camps; 70,000 in Jordan, 75,000
in Syria, 280,000 in The West Bank, 190,000 in The Gaza Strip and
100,000 in Lebanon. Many of these refugee camps still exist today. The
Palestinians were determined to return home to what was now Israel,
but the Israelis were determined to keep the land that they had gained
as a result of the war. This caused a conflict between the two groups,
which still hasn't been solved, and has caused the Israelis and the
Palestinians to be mistrustful and suspicious towards each other. This
feeling of mistrust and suspicion affected later decisions held by
both groups, and no doubt hindered the peace. This outlook also
affected the general attitude of the people, which has made it
difficult for them to accept each other. In the case of the
Palestinians, they had refused to accept the fact that Israel was a
state. The Palestinians also grew to resent the Israelis, thinking
that they had taken over the Palestinian land without the consent of
the Palestinians living there.

Another long-term cause that has contributed to the feeling of fear
and hatred for both the Israelis and the Palestinians is the 1967 Six
Day War. The Israelis hatred of the Palestinians and other Arab states
increased mainly because of the propaganda that was released before
the war. Many cartoons were printed in newspapers a month before the
war and they all implied that the Arab states...
