    The origins of Palestinians are complex and diverse. The region was not originally Arab – its Arabization was a consequence of the inclusion of Palestine within the rapidly expanding Arab Empire conquered by Arabian tribes and their local allies in the first millennium, most significantly during the Muslim conquest of the Levant in the 7th y: 80,   Helen Samhan of the Arab American Institute suggests that Arab-Israeli conflicts in the s contributed significantly to cultural and political anti-Arab sentiment in the United States (). The United States has historically supported the State of Israel, while some Middle Eastern countries deny the existence of the Israeli state. The Palestine War has been by far the most important military encounter in the history of the Arab-Israeli conflict. This book examines the origins of the war and its progression through two distinct stages: the guerrilla warfare between the Arab and Jewish communities of Mandatory Palestine, and the conventional inter-state war between the State of Israel and the invading Arab armies/5(25). A dissertation that was published as a book by one of the first African American women to receive a doctorate in history, the book examines failed efforts to prevent war through international arms limitation agreements. ter Meulen, Jacob.
