The article discusses the singularity of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, which is the result of the special interplay of politics, religion, and the attachment to the land, a conflict over land and sovereignty over it. It is inferred that the uniqueness of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict has formed from the fact that most Palestinian still reside inside or close to historic Palestine with moral, political, and material support of over a billion Arabs and Muslims. It is claimed that it is a political conflict between the two distinct national groups over the ownership and control of the same piece of land. However, it is noted that a combination of political separation and sharing of land could be a possible solution to the conflict.
