Current Israeli-Palestinian Impasse in Context of the 60th Anniversary

Ben  Gurion 1948

It's often noted that the ongoing Middle-East Conflict had its origins in two seminal eventsthe 1948 and 1967 warsand the effects they had on the Palestinian population. Last year saw the 40th anniversary of the Six-Day War/June 1967 War. I covered this in earlier posts on February 7, May 7, May 9June 6 and June 7, 2007. 

This year marks the 60th anniversary of the founding of the State of Israel (May 14) and the war that broke out immediately afterwards as Arab armies attempted to destroy the UN-sanctioned Jewish state at birth. In the next few days, we'll look at the events leading up to the 1948 war.
