Can someone explain about the Middle East?

I don't understand the conflict between Israel and Palestine, or why is it STILL going on? All they're doing is ruining kids lives.

    The red areas on this map are owned by Muslims. The blue area on this map is owned by Jews. The folks in the red area think it's unfair that the blue area is so big.

    The Palestinians were robbed of their own land after WW2 when international Jewery was permitted to send thousands of refugees/settlers to live there in accordance with a great power promise made much earlier on. Jewish terrorists drove the Palestinians out, and also the British occupiers who had held the territory since the end of WW1 under League of Nations and it's UN successors mandate.  A Zionist state was then formed. Ever since then, rivalry between Russia, the USA, and an islamic jihad has wilfully kept the area in a state of conflict. The Jews claim they have a 3,000 year old birthright to be there. Islam, which also has sacred holy places there, claims it is their territory forever.

    In defiance of the Geneva conventions, the Tel Aviv regime has for decades been erecting settlements and importing a population into the occupied territory. Palestine has now been reduced in size to a group of unconnected refugee camps similar to the 'bantustans' which the South Africans herded native peoples into.  In addition, the Tel Aviv regime is occupying territory in both Syria and Lebanon.
