When I first arrived to my grandmother’s area I noticed every woman had their body and hair covered. The men wore sandals with jeans and regular t-shirts and no one drove nice cars.…

    In the following essay I will claim that the Arab-Israeli conflict has been one of the central themes in Middle East politics since 1948. The creation of the state of Israel and subsequent claims of territory has been the cause of many wars in the region.
