With the creation of the state of Israel in 1948 a dark cloud engulfed the region that was to add to the plethora of problems and the challenges, both domestic and international, that the Arabs were already facing. The War of 1948 is unfortunately still in progress, despite the peace process commenced in Madrid in 1991. Each time a glimmer of hope appears it is extinguished in the folds of the protracted, seemingly intractable conflict. The atmosphere remains polluted with ancient hatreds and conflicting ideologies that defy logic and the rational approach. Both Arabs and Jews are seemingly unable to break away from the grip of their historical traumas and the Western input into the conflict has not only been terribly negative and one-sided, but it has further added to the deepening sense of frustration.
