Palestinian and Israeli Arabs then launched a new uprising against Israel. The revolt was initiated by local residents and involved mostly low-level violence such as rock throwing, winning sympathy for the struggle of the Palestinians against the Israeli occupiers.

Many argued that this was also a violation of the 1949 Armistice Agreements. [45] [46] [ not in citation given ] On July 26, 1956, Egypt nationalized the Suez Canal Company, and closed the canal to Israeli shipping. [47] Israel responded on October 29, 1956, by invading the Sinai Peninsula with British and French support. Outside Gaza, the conflict is relatively dormant. The writer is totally impartial and unbiased. Paradoxically, perhaps, a major motivation for the declaration may have been the belief, inspired by anti-Semitism, that international Jewry would come to the aid of the British if they declared themselves in favor of a Jewish homeland, and the fear that the Germans were about to issue such a declaration.

Israelis were divided over the question what to do with the West Bank, and a new religious-nationalistic movement, Gush Emunim, emerged, that pushed for settling these areas. To establish a Zion community all the people have to be of “one heart and one mind” meaning one in purpose and “dwell in righteousness” which means according to the laws of God. The term "Middle East" may have originated in the 1850s in the British India Office.
