That's an excellent video, but the practical reality is that the Israeli-Arab conflict is like the Hatfield-McCoy feud. After several decades, neither party knew what they were fighting about. By 1979, the families united for a special week's taping of the popular game show "Family Feud," in which they played for a cash prize and a pig.

In 1947, the majority of the international community recognized Israel as a country--which at the time was the only reasonable resolution to the Israeli-Arab feud. Therefore, Israel has a right to defend itself and is required to do so on a fairly regular basis.

Both sides thrive on the world upheaval they cause with their feud. Maybe a solution is for the rest of the world to ignore them. Oh, that's right...we need the Middle East's oil.
