Kleine Geschichte des israelisch-palästinensischen Konflikts

Seit Jahren fordert die internationale Staatengemeinschaft eine Zwei-Staaten-Regelung, d. h. einen palästinensischen Staat neben Israel. Auch unter Israelis wie Palästinensern sprechen sich Mehrheiten für eine derartige friedliche Konfliktregelung aus. Doch immer weniger glauben, dass es dazu kommen wird.

Example text

The first Home Rule bill simplified Irish politics: it forged the Nationalist-Liberal alliance that was to survive, despite splits in the Home Rule movement, until 1916; it swept away Ulster Liberalism; it created an alliance between Irish Unionists and British Conservatives, and especially it made Ulster the stronghold of uncompromising Unionist opinion. The less public part of this political arrangement - the influence of the southern Irish Unionists within the ranks of the Conservative Party and its Liberal Unionist allies - was as important as the more public championing of Ulster Unionism.

The result was a declaration of intent twenty years of resolute government - but little more than piecemeal reforms, some of them, like local government in 1898, extended to Ireland as a means of extricating the Unionist government from the unusual combination of Irish Unionists and Nationalists, who were united in their indignation that Ireland was being overtaxed to the sum of £2,750,000 per annum. 31 An ineffective land act in 1891 was, certainly, followed by a more effective measure in 1896, but the rate ofland purchase remained relatively slow.

The question of land might prove more difficult; but here again Gladstone could rely on local British support, since Welsh Nonconformists' second enemy was the squire - not that they would have separated the squire from the Anglican parson in their catalogue of political villainy. What Protestant Conservatives regarded as the unholy alliance of 'Cardinal Cullen with Knox and Manning with Wesley' survived their counter-propaganda; and the fact that the striking of a blow against the landowner was also to strike a blow against the local social order in Wales (and Scotland) enabled Gladstone to embark with confidence upon his second Irish policy: land reform.
