Healing the Divide: Finding a Path to Peace in the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict

Amidst the ancient lands of the East,

Where tales of glory and tragedy ne'er cease,

There lies a land of strife and pain,

Where two peoples struggle to stake their claim.

The Israeli and the Palestinian,

Bound in a struggle that's been going on,

For generations, they've fought and bled,

Each side claiming the same holy bread.

Jerusalem, a city of beauty and dread,

With holy sites that both sides have read,

Inscribed in their hearts and minds so deep,

That they'll fight to the last to keep.

But amidst the darkness, there's still hope,

For those who see beyond the scope,

Of the narrow-minded and the blind,

Who believe only in their own kind.

For those who dare to dream of peace,

And work to make the hatred cease,

The Israeli and the Palestinian,

Can find a way to live in union.

    the end hit me cause the israel was given a small land during the early time, but they slowly crush the palestine and conquer the palestine land and claim as their own. Israel will never be a country , they are just invader. They will never reunited with palestine. even palestine people dont wanna be with them. #FreePalestine
