A Brief Stick Figure History of the Israel-Palestine Conflict

A Brief Stick Figure History of the Israel-Palestine Conflict

 

The following is my attempt to produce a succinct yet comprehensive elucidation of one of the most contentious and complex issues of our time, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. For the sake of brevity I had to leave some important events out. Though my personal views may inadvertently shine through, I have done my best to remain neutral and unbiased. Lastly, if the nature of turning a very violent and sad conflict into a series of stick figure drawings comes off as offensive I apologize. My goal is to make this very lofty topic approachable, not make light of it. I hope reading the following teaches you something new and inspires you to do further research on the matter.

Not gonna lie, I used wikipedia a lot for this one, though I did make sure all the information was properly sourced. Here were my primary starting points.
