Many years ago, Israel was threatened by the Arab’s aggression towards them (Duiker, 2015). The leaders of Israel established a home for the Jews. The Jews were assisted by the German government in which they were provided with assets for living (Duiker, 2015). Throughout this time, the United States tried to establish both a democratic and modern state so Jews would be attracted to it (Duiker, 2015). With many different views throughout Israel, they developed a parliament also known as Knesset (Duiker, 2015). Because there were so many differences of votes, the government designed a coalition of multiple parties. The secular leader had to provide to multiple parties with many religious assemblies (Duiker, 2015).
In the 1950 to the 1960’s, the arguments between Israel and other states in the Middle East sored. Israel “adopted a policy of determined resistance and immediate retaliation against PLO and Arab provocations” (Duiker, 2015). In Mid-1967, Israel and the encompassing Arab communities continued to decline (Duiker, 2015). Nasser increased military actions and forced a blockage against Israeli commerce (Duiker, 2015). In June 1967, Israel threw air attacks against Egypt and the army of Israel was able to break the blockade at the top of the Gulf of Aqaba (Duiker, 2015). Other forces of Israel confronted the Jordanian ground (Duiker, 2015). They also engaged in Jerusalem and detained Syrian military spots in the Golan Heights along the Israeli-Syrian border (Duiker, 2015). Within the six-day war, Israel was able to triple the extent of its territory and improve the security (Duiker, 2015). Nasser agreed to sign the peace treaty as long as Israel extracted its boundaries prior to 1967 (Duiker, 2015). Israel was concerned about the other Arab countries refusing (Duiker, 2015). In 1973 on Yom Kippur day, the Egyptians sprung an attack on Israel. Eventually a cease-fire was attained (Duiker, 2015). The years following the cease-fire, peace was sustained, but on shaky ground (Duiker, 2015).
The Balfour Declaration also known as “scrap of paper” led to the formation of the current state of Israel which allowed Jews to return if they wanted to (Balfour Declaration, 2016). This was an understanding from the British government for the formation of a residence for the Jewish people in Israel (Balfour Declaration, 2016). The League of Nations allowed for “official recognition from the international community to the Jewish national movement, which lead to Israel’s independence on May 14, 1948” (Balfour Declaration, n.d.). The Balfour Declaration made known to others of the Jewish rights (Balfour Declaration, n.d.).
