Most tourists to Israel visit the charming, quaint Arab city of Jaffa adjacent to Tel Aviv but never think about the contrast. Jaffa had been the major Arab city in that part of pre-state Israel since it was re-established after the eathquake arround 1500. In contrast, Tel Aviv was founded in the 1920s by Jews seeking to move out of Jaffa. Now, the Arabs envy Tel Aviv, as a modern Western city, while Jaffa remains as it was 150 years ago. Rather than economics, alot of the conflict is fueled by emotions like envy, jealousy, pride, honor and shame.
