This article discusses what the position of the Socialist International was and how it was adopted in the Arab-Israeli conflict  between 1947 and 1983. The Labour Party of Israel was supported politically by this international organization, as the representative of socialist Zionism and the State of Israel, totally and uncritically until certain time. This support, as the Israeli Labour what the sole representative of the Middle East in the Socialist International, modeled vision and determined the position of the IS toward so-called Arab-Israeli conflict. As of a certain point in time that began to forge from 1967, that support was growing progressively, more nuanced and critical about the policies on the conflict that various governments of Israel had adopted. However, and although this confrontation continues up to the present, the Socialist International has never questioned and has always supported the existence of a democratic Jewish state of Israel.
