This article makes an analysis of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in a constructivist perspective of International Relations, so as to understand its origins and repercussions today. The conflict is not motivated by simple territorial or religious issues, being characterized by the difference of identities between the actors involved. While analyzing the benefits offered by the Israeli government to immigrants, it is possible to perceive that the conflict reaches beyond territoriality. As to religious matters, religious minorities are a part of Israeli society and have their rights guaranteed by Israeli law. There is no attempt at religious conversion by either of the actors. Another factor that prevents the establishment of a Palestinian State is terrorism, which strengthens Israel's sovereignty.
