Palestine

  • Cambodia Palestine

A key region in the development of the Middle East, Palestine is rich in tradition and has a vast history dating back to ancient civilizations. Many believe the namesake is derived from “Philistia,” or the Philistines who occupied part of this area in the 12th century B.C.

The area has vast strategic importance because it contains the main roads that connect Egypt to Syria and the Mediterranean Sea to the Jordan River. It is also considered Holy Land by multiple religious groups; Jews, Muslims, and Christians all deem it sacred. Since the 20th century, Palestine has been the object of conflicting claims of Jewish and Arab national movements, which has resulted in years of lasting political strife, violence, and occasional open warfare.

Today, Palestine theoretically includes the West Bank (the territory that divides modern-day Israel and Jordan) and the Gaza Strip (the land bordering modern-day Israel and Egypt). However, these borders are not formally set, and many areas claimed by Palestinians have been occupied by Israelis for years.

Currently, the Palestinian National Authority is making efforts to have itself recognized by the United Nations and other international agencies. World leaders continue to work toward a resolution — a future in which there is peace and agreement across all populations.
