One of the subjects that is covered in GCSE History is the Middle East during the period from 1948-1999. One aspect looked at is the origins of the Arab-Israeli conflict.
Unsurprisingly, the origins of the Arab-Israeli conflict go back a long way. However, after the Great War and the defeat of the Ottoman Empire in the Middle East, the problem intensified - to the point that the British (responsible for Palestine since the 1920s) evacuated Palestine as Israel's independence loomed. The consequences have plagued the Middle East ever since.
