The Newsround team travelled to the Middle East to make a special programme about the issues there.
There has been conflict in the region for a very long time.
Newsround talked to the children who live there to find out more about their lives.
It was a very powerful programme.
Tell us how it made you feel.

I feel really sorry for the Palestinian children. I'm a Palestinian and I can't go to my homeland because of the war

I feel so sorry for the children suffering They should have a normal child's life-playing with friends and enjoying life, not suffering.
Kirsty, 14, Great Yarmouth
Imagine if we were those people, how would we feel? I feel really sorry for them, and I really hope things improve for them.
Jasmine, 11, London
I think it is horrible what children around the world have to go through.
Amanda, 15, Taunton
I feel SO sorry for the poor kids living there...
Jess, 13, London
It is so awful but as you said, the future depends on the next generation. So how can it be any better when the kids have been taught to hate and fight each other?
Jenny, 12, Stoke-on-Trent
It is awful what is happening in Israel. I hope one day things will be better and people will live in harmony.

I was horrified when I saw the show. The adults were too busy hurting each other to care that innocent children were being punished for following their religion. If the people from both sides could meet and discuss the problem sensibly things would be a lot better!
Erin, 11, Enfield
I feel upset for all those innocent people who have to cope with it. I'm just glad I'm not one of them.
Josie, 13, Javea
I feel so sorry for those poor children. It's upsetting to think that we don't act as grateful as we should be as we have a life like a king or queen compared to them.
Casey, 10, Kirkby
I can't believe what those unfortunate kids have to go through, I didn't even know that things like that could happened in the Middle East. I just hope our Government will do more to resolve this issue!
Jade, 14, London
Life must be so hard for those children. I'm grateful we live in a peaceful country.
Jo, 15, Berkshire
What is happening in Israel is disgraceful. I'm a Jew, and I'm ashamed of both the Palestinians AND the Israelis. I can see that both parties find deep meaning in the country, but why they can't just live together in harmony, I don't know. Some day, I will be able to visit my family in Israel in peace and without fear, but until then, all we can do is pray.
Abigail, 13, Berkshire
I hope that the road map would be settled. Thank you Newsround for showing us groundbreaking events dealing with issues :) .
Mel, 17, London
I can not believe that some people just won't agree on something. When you really think about it is just like an argument in the playground.
Hannah, 10, Bristol
It's so good to finally see an unbiased report on the Israeli/Palestinian crisis. I felt so moved after this programme and motivated to do something. I really pray the politicians will get their act together and help those children.
Sam, 17, Birmingham
I think it is stupid when each side says they hate each other. They only hate the people who cause the war.
Reemi, 13, Slough
It must be really hard for them, I'm grateful our wars are somewhere else.
Steph, 10, Birkenhead
I think it is terrible what these innocent people have to deal with. I feel very strongly about these issues and I think there should be someone who can sort out these problems and stop this for all mankind.
