Although over 50 years have passed since the creation of the State of Israel, Israelites and Palestinians have been in consistent conflict. While much of the conflict between Israelites and Palestinians does not center around the economic and commercial interactions between the two, a recent development between ICC Israel and ICC Palestine promises to facilitate peace and cooperation between Israel and Palestine for commercial matters. Although there has been conflict in Israel for thousands of years, evidence suggests that conflict between individuals of Jewish and Palestinian decent began in the early 20th century. In the early 1900’s, Theodor Herzl, who is now considered the father of political Zionism, started a movement in response to a rise in anti-Semitism across Europe.
