ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the current state of politics and government in Israel. It is the author's view that of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict did not exist or was resolved, the world would see Israel as one of the most notable successes of modern history. The author reviews Israel's history, and suggests that the country's democratic integrity fades when one considers the fact that Israeli Arabs do not enjoy the same opportunities as Jewish citizens. According to the author, Israel's occupation of the Gaza Strip following the 1967 six-day war turned the country into a colonial power. An analysis of the how the Palestinian-Israeli conflict has unfolded since is included.
