because of this, either intentionally or innocently have made it easier for some people to labile it as religious conflict rather than identity conflicts in which clearly most of the catholic wish to have a united Ireland. This conflict to large extent is not about the religion but identity, in this case both side in this conflicts are not fighting to convert other side to their version of religion, but they are fighting for geographical place to have control over, in other word to have for their own, in this case happen to be different version of Christianity. In comparison to the Israeli-Palestine which happen to be two different religion, Jaws and Muslims. The connection between these four group people, are all fighting to secure the place for their homeland. Conclusion: It would be very unwise to think that there was only few reasons for the failure to the Sunningdale Agreement, but instead there were many and complicated one too, as its been illustrated above, Northern Ireland’s issue is one of most complicated conflicts in modern time similar to the Israel- Palestine conflict’s to large extent in which both of these conflict’s is fight for its homeland. It would be very simplistic to suggest a simple answer to these two conflicts. It’s believed that one of the core reason for failure of Sunningdale Agreement was it did not had strong foundation form the start, Some high level Protestant dissent were against the ideal before it was began. The history teach as that some conflicts are easier to sort than others, for instance, conflicts between two state is much easier to come to some compromise rather than between two groups within a state. Regardless of the Globalisation, we witnessing a new phenonama , nowadays, more nation wanted be independence, in particular the Scottish vote on independence, Catalonian’s referendum, Kurdish Referendum and Brexit , all these cases shows that people are determined more than ever to pursue and be in charge of their own destination, in this concept the case of NI and Israeli-Palestine is no different in other word as much as this I pessimist about the world these two conflicts have mainly two scenario either both side make some compromise or this conflict would continue long into the future, the future to these two conflicts would remain to be unknown. Unless both participant of these conflicts have serious desire and commitment to bring these terrible conflict’s to end. >GET ANSWER
