Early 20th century saw a new political conflict brewing up on the east coast of the Mediterranean Sea. Two nations fighting for the claim of same land. Israel, a comparatively small but organized nation and Palestine who was big but disorganized. The conflict is so complex that after three wars and thousands of deaths later it is still an unsolved problem. This story is how a small nation like Israel, stood strong and determined in front of the armies of multiple nations and still did not loose the sight of its goal.
The conflict started when the Jewish community began to immigrate to the Land of Israel due to the wrong treatment given to them around the world. Later on they began to promote the purchasing to land in the Arab territory and also calling to Jews to come to the Land of Israel. This led to the starting of disputes between Arabs and Jews which later went on to have three major wars. In 1948 when the Britishers were leaving Israel and Palestine, the Arabs decide to take back what was rightfully their; at least this is what they thought. It was a sure sort win for the Palestine as they had the advantage of a surprise and that of the manpower. The Palestine army although big was highly disorganized and this Israelis made a profitable use of this weakness. Because of the quick thinking and with the power of organizing Israel emerged victorious. It also annexed major parts of the Palestine’s territory. This whole thing teaches us one thing only and that is the power of organizing. How you can defeat any problem which comes your way by organizing your thoughts, organizing your priorities, organizing everything in life.
The good thing about problems and hardships is that they do not stop coming. You could have defeated one of them and became stronger but then again, a wave much higher hits you and pull you right back into action. This is what that keeps us going and make us stronger day by day. The first war was the start of what was to come. Israel now bigger, stronger, and more cautious than ever was about to face another wave of resistance from the Palestinian armies. And this time they were not alone.
There were multiple problems for Israel and Egypt was one of them. The Suez Canal was one of the most important trade routes for the world and Egypt declared to nationalize it. Israelis were not allowed to use it and so began the invasion. The main agenda being the control for the canal. They succeeded in gaining the control of the canal but at a prize. This incident in Israel history taught us to never rest before you attain your goal. Israel tried hard and smart to gain control and make the life of its citizen a little better and to end the wrongdoing of Egypt. Whatever you are facing in your life, no matter how big it is or how impossible it is, you never stop fighting for what is right.
Time went by and the frequency of the small attacks started to increase. Both the parties became violent with the citizens of other side. While Israel was busy with other things, Palestine on the other hand was making friends. And Egypt being their favorite started to train Palestinians for the much bigger war that was about to come. This time Israel was not looking to extend the war for a year like the First and so begin The Six Day War.
When Egypt regained the control of the Gaza strip, Israel occurred a huge lose as the Israel vessels were not allowed by the Egyptian forces. And then things became violent. Israel started the war by engaging in an air strike catching the Egyptians by surprise. And simultaneously the Israelis initiated a ground attack and surprised the Egyptians from all angles. Egyptian forces suffered a heavy loss while Israelis won the war by negligible casualties.
We can go on and on talking about Israel and its way of dealing with problems, whether it is Palestine or Egypt in war or be in it other fields like science, medicine and economics. It has truly Never Back Down. We can learn a lot from history of nations and there way of dealing with problems and I am not just saying this about Israel, I am saying this about every nation be it small or large. Take India as an example. It has numerous problems simultaneously going but this is not hampered the growth of the nation. People have fought through them and are still fighting. These problems just make us stronger and gets us ready for the next challenge.
