Hereof, what happened in 1948 in the Middle East?
The Arab-Israeli War of 1948 broke out when five Arab nations invaded territory in the former Palestinian mandate immediately following the announcement of the independence of the state of Israel on May 14, 1948. The United Nations resolution sparked conflict between Jewish and Arab groups within Palestine.
Secondly, was there ever Peace in the Middle East? Yes, or rather relative peace. After the fall of the Byzantines to the Arabs, the middle east was peaceful mostly, apart from feuds between different local Princes, with the occasional succession crisis in the Arab Empire, resulting in the Fatimid, Ayyubid, and other Dynasties.

Sixty years ago this month, the United States first sent combat troops into the Middle East. The July 1958 Marine landing in Beirut, Lebanon thus began the era of America's now seemingly endless wars in the region.
