The following website presents the basic facts of the Arab-Israeli conflict.
However, an important fact is missing from these basic facts. That fact is that the beginning of the animosity between the Arabs and Israelis began with the Genesis account of a promise of an heir made to Abraham and the birth of Ishmael, Abraham's illegitimate son that he had begotten through Hagar, the Egyptian handmaid of his wife Sarah. But even though Ishmael became the firtborn son after God made the promise, he was not the son of the promise.
For then God told Abraham, "No, Sarah your wife shall bear you a son, and you shall call his name Isaac; I will establish My covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, and with his descendants after him. And as for Ishmael, I have heard you. Behold I have blessed him, and will make him fruitful, and will multiply him exceedingly. He shall beget twelve princes, and I will make him a great nation. But my covenant I will establish with Isaac, whom Sarah shall bear to you at this set time next year."
(Genesis 17:19-21 NKJV)
Issac had a son named Jacob, but God renamed him Israel. And so it was that just as Israel had twelve tribes, so did Ishmael; twelve fathers of Arab families, the descendants of whom along with the descendants of Esau are the modern day Arabs. And a prophecy given Hagar, the mother of Ishmael, by the Angel of the Lord is clearly a parallel to that which was given by Isaac to Esau and his descendants; these prophecies mark the beginning and establish the roots of the curses which operate through the ages and continuing today against their present day descendants.
"Behold you are with child, and you shall bear a son. You shall call his name Ishmael, Because the Lord has heard your affliction. He shall be a wild man; His hand shall be against every man, And every man's hand against him."
(Genesis 16:11-12 NKJV)
Esau wept to his father Isaac over the loss of his blessing to his brother Jacob and begged his father for a blessing for himself, Isaac blessed him and in so doing brought forth a prophetic utterance which is presently still being fulfilled among his descendants, the modern day Arabs.
"Behold your dwelling shall be of the fatness of the earth, and of the dew of heaven from above. By your sword you shall live, And you shall serve your brother; And it shall come to pass, when you become restless, that you shall break his yoke from your neck ."
(Gen. 27:39-40 NKJV)
We see from the linked site that the Arabs possess 21 nations, many of which are of the world's wealthiest because of the oil reserves. The prophecy of living by the sword represents that spirit of revenge, murder and hatred against Israel and against anyone who would oppose their philosophy. And the part about him serving his brother seems to be playing out by the fact that the Israeli economy is superior over those of the Arab nations and the numbers of Palestinians who daily trudge into Israel to work for their Israeli employers and those who do business with Israel.
Islam is the very attempt of the sons of Esau to overrule the edict of God, that they would serve their younger brother, and to break his yoke from off of their necks by worshipping a different god (Allah) that has no son and accepting a different gospel and bible (the Koran) with a false prophet (Mohammed) and a false savior (the Mahdi).
Note also that the rider on the "pale horse" is given power "to kill with sword" and "the beasts" of the earth.
So I looked, and behold, a pale horse. And the name of him who sat on it was Death, and Hades followed with him. And power was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword, with hunger, with death, and by the beasts of the earth.
(Revelation 6:8 NKJV)
