The great injustice and anguish suffered by the people of Jews in Europe during the Nazi persecution cannot justify the suffering imposed on the Palestinian people. Based on this view, the story and the historical facts of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict will not be analyzed in this paper, but a comparative analysis of the expulsion of the local Arab Palestinian population will be made, from the independence of the state of Israel, passing through the events of 1967 till the recent years of military occupation of Palestinian territories and at the end will be given some guidelines on how to approach the solution for the starting of a peace process. The initiatives of all is the Zionist ideology, which aims to establish a state of Israel only for Jewish people. Israeli leaders, deeply influenced by this ideology, realized that only through the demographic prevailing of the Jews could have reached their final goal. The creation of the demographic majority did not accept coexistence, but it was such that it exercised ethnic cleansing. Today the Palestinian refugees around the world are over five million and are being denied the right to return from the state of Israel. The remaining Palestinian lives in two areas, West Bank and the Strip of Gaza, designated as human prisons, which are under military occupations and military law. Ethnic cleansing in the occupied territories is different from the policies of the past years. Today’s ethnic cleansing is slow, sophisticated and strategic, which is accomplished through settling colonies, but the final result is equally efficient and achieves the intentions of the state of Israel to install the demographic majority and uniqueness of the Jews.
