The Israel and Palestina conflict – Hilde Henriksen Waage

Hilde Henriksen Waage is a history professor at the University in Oslo. On the International day at school she held a presentation of the Israel and Palestina conflict. She talked about the core issues of the conflict; a Palestinian state that died under its birth, the occupied areas (Gaza, Jerusalem etc.), the Palestinians and the Palestinians refugees right to turn back, the jewish settlements on the west bank.

Waage also talked about different leaders, such as; the Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin, who also was a Jewish terrorist leader of the group Irgun. Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir, was also mentioned. He’s also a leader of a jewish terrorist group. Hilde Henriksen Waage has interviewed Shamir herself for three hours. In the interview Shamir told her that he wanted control of the whole country, but didn’t know what do do with the people in it.

The security of Israel was another topic. Waage talked about the wall that has a propose of protecting Israel from Palestinian self-bombers. Israel is controlling all the borders, air territory and the Mediterranean. Hilde described Gaza as Middle East’s biggest prison. There is about 1,8 million stateless Palestinian people.

Donald trump was mentioned as well. Trump is a Israel-friend. And Professor Hilde Henriksen Waage means that USA is the only one that can influence Israel. Hilde was also worried about the history knowledge some big leaders have and that their knowledge gives us reason for being worried about this Israel-Palestinian case.maxresdefault
