How Liza Loved the King by Edmund Blair Leighton, 1890.
Here is one of the biggest benefits to having zayn tweet this; uninformed people decide to figure out what’s going on. Unfortunately, I’m not the best person to talk to about this, but I’ll try my best. I also know that twerk-it-larry is pretty informed on the situation and has faced it first hand.
So, Zayn Malik tweeted this today:
Until1946, Palestinians lived all over the country, some Jewish people did too, and they actually lived pretty peacefully.
After WW2, the British, finding that Jews felt unsafe in Europe, decided to establish Israel as their state. Over a million fled to Israel from 1948-1970.
Here’s whats happening now:
The current escalation was caused when 3 Israeli teenagers were kidnapped while they were found on Palestinian land. Israeli government was quick to blame Hamas, the people in power in Palestine, they later admitted that that it was a lone act, in other words, Hamas wasn’t involved. In other words, you could make the argument that Israel blamed Hamas in order to justify the planned attack.
Further, the Israeli government was well aware the teens were dead, but acted as if they didn’t:
Yet for the next two weeks authorities put on a phony rescue effort, instituted a gag order to prevent the public from knowing the truth and rallied the Jewish domestic and diaspora populations in anticipation of their move against Hamas.
In a nutshell, the conflict is about two peoples, living in peace. One side does something, and the other reacts.
I’m not saying Palestine is innocent in all of this, but they are definitely the disenfranchised population. According to Human Rights Watch:
World Report 2014.
Israeli forces killed more Palestinian civilians in the West Bank and demolished more Palestinian homes than in 2012. Israel continued to build settlements in the West Bank, violating international law. Palestinian security forces in both the West Bank and Gaza enjoyed virtual impunity from criminal prosecution despite credible allegations of torture. In Gaza, Israel and Egypt impeded rebuilding of the devastated economy by blocking virtually all exports. Israeli and Palestinian security services in the West Bank and Gaza arrested people arbitrarily and unlawfully restricted people from protesting.
I have general knowledge of what’s going on, so here are some more links to explore and stay updated:

Looked it up, she cute, but not that cute
Over 160,000 dead in Syria, 1700 in the last week alone.
Over 1000 Palestinians in the last 20 days.
Casualties in Ukraine since January are estimated around 1500, 500 of which are civilians.
Is the international community doing anything about this?
Naveen waved a hand in front of her face. “Hello, Tiana!” he said playfully. “Can you hear me?”"Sorry!" Tiana said, jumping. She’d been a million miles away! "I was thinking about the menu for the gala.""Here," Naveen said. He slid a cup of hot chocolate and a warm beignet across the breakfast table. "Maybe breakfast will help your thinking."

3. Khadir al-Bashiliki, 45, died in the same bombing.

Pro-Israel goon in Boston threatened a Palestinian woman with rape at Tuesday’s protest. Make sure to ID this guy, and please stay safe everyone. The irony of Zionists: Wearing a shirt that says peace while you threaten to rape someone.
The 48,000 march on Qalandia is a culmination of the efforts of all Palestinian parties and political groups in Ramallah and its neighboring villages.
We grouped up in front of the Am’ari refugee camp, and from the start it was obvious that this was massive. To be totally honest, we most…
