Zionism destabilized the Middle East beginning after WWI. Unfortunately the UK promised the same land to both Jews and Arabs. However there was a rational process of acquisition where Arabs were paid for land. After WWII, the large influx of death camp survivors intensified pressures. The UN, out of empathy for what the Jews had endured in Europe, gave them a country in an Arab land. This would not have happened except for the guilt of the USA, UK and other western nations for having neglected the Jews plight under Nazi Germany.
