Hi so I’ve picked Israel and Palestine for my coursework and I have no clue about any of it. My title is
‘To what extent is Palestinian nationalism responsible for the failure to solve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict? 1917-2000’. Can anyone help me with how to do it? I have 3 main points which are Palestinian nationalism, Britain and the US and then Israeli intransigence. I'm really struggling with the analysis for the points. For example, one of my points is that Israel colluded with the west in the suez crisis but then I don’t know how to analyse it.
Please help!!!!
thanks!

You need to use historians’ arguments. Which historians have you read so far?

So I have my historians; I'm using ilan pappe and Avi Shlaim. I'm just confused as to how to analyse the paragraphs and the evidence. It just seems so basic. And then how to structure the essay in general.

this is an example of one of the pparagraphs ive tried to write

The hatred of this alliance was exacerbated massively by the Suez crisis, when Israel colluded with the west to allow them to gain access to the Suez Canal again (their major access point for oil). This is seen as a reference point for the alliance between the west and Israel. The fact that the Suez canal was on Egyptian soil meant that the crisis was a direct attack on an arab countries soil and was the first that israle launched. Considering the perceived might of Israel thanks too western aide discussed above as well as israels massive defeat of the arabs in the 1948 was, this was seen as a major threat to Egypt. in the end, in the crisis 3,000 Egyptians were killed in addition to 4,900 wounded. This therefore worsened relations between Israel and Egypt, which was already extremely stale after the 1948 war. Therefore, rather than trying to rectify the solution, Israel decided to intervene in a conflict that had no relation to them and thus exacerbating the conflict. This therefore showed that Israel were more concerned with getting the western allies on side so they could reap the benefits of technological advancements and financial aid, rather than actually solving the conflict. This could be because the Israelis knew that as long as the west were on their side, it would be highly unlikely to lose the war but also it would be unlikely that they would have to make any concessions in the negotiations.
