According to historian Vincent Lemire, the world has chosen to ignore the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, rather than trying to find a solution.

After several years of relative calm, East Jerusalem again became the focus of tensions between Israelis and Palestinians.

What began with riots over plans to evict Palestinian families by the Israeli army has taken the form of violent clashes that have multiplied in Gaza and in several Israeli towns and cities.

The UN came to warn that progress is being made towards “a full-scale war.”

And the historian Vincent lemire he thinks so too.
