Palestinian and Israeli conflict

If you have been active on social media or watched the news you will see what is going on between Palestinians and Israelis. People are entitled to their own opinion but we need to notice the damage that its causing the citizens of these places. So many people need help because they are getting attacked. Although it’s been going on since 1948, some people are barely noticing. This is why people are standing up for Palestinians by protesting and donating to help them.

The problem with Palestine and Israel had been going on since 1948, but sometimes they stop attacking each other. The most recent attacks were sparked when some Israelis blocked Palestinians gathering in the Muslim Holy month of Ramadan. Joseph Krauss, a reporter on ABC7, said, “The latest clashes began a month ago with an Israeli move to block some Palestinian gatherings at the beginning of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, already a time of heightened religious sensitivities. After those restrictions eased, tensions over a plan to evict dozens of Palestinians from an east Jerusalem neighborhood continued to fuel confrontations.” He also mentioned that dozens were killed by rockets streamed out in Gaza into Israel, while Israel filled Palestinian territories with airstrikes.

There are so many people that are helping each other out. We can also help by being aware of the situation and help by donating or even just posting about it on social media to spread awareness. On, they tell us some ways we can help. They say we can ¨Listen and Learn, Take economic action, Write a minute or statement of support, Join a national network, and Become an advocate.¨ 

Other than people donating and posting on social media, there are some people who have been protesting around the world. Adela Suliman and Sara Mhaidli, reporters from NBC News, talk about how people were protesting. They say ¨Thousands of people took to the streets of cities across the world Saturday, to show their support for Palestinians, as airstrikes pounded Gaza and rocket attacks hit Israel for a sixth consecutive day.¨ This shows that people are not being silent and they are helping.
