Background Information Summaries;1/8/2011, p5
The article provides background information on the Intifada. The two most recent Intifadas have been in response to the Israeli occupation of the West Bank and Gaza Strip, lasting from 1987 to 1993 and from 2000 on. The first Intifada began as a spontaneous, popular uprising in the form of demonstrations, strikes and boycotts. It began to die down in 1991 and is generally considered to have ended with the signing of the 1993 Olso peace accords, intended to move towards giving Palestinians autonomous rule. The second Intifada, called the al Aqsa Intifada, have been more deadly due to harsher Israeli response and the introduction of radical Islamist elements into the struggle. Information on the conflict between Arabs and Israelis since World War I is given.
