“Easy to understand, historically accurate Jewish Voice for Peace mini- primer about why Israelis and Palestinians are fighting, why the US-backed peace process has been an impediment to peace, and what you can do to make a difference. This conflict is essentially about land and human rights, not religion and culture. Endorsed by Palestinian, Israeli and American scholars and peace activists.”
Jewish Voice for Peace: “Israel and Palestine, an animated introduction”
Note by Juan Cole: I don’t agree with everything in the film, especially the history. Some 200,000 Jews settled Palestine before the Nazis amounted to anything, as a British settler colonial project, not a Jewish refugee one. And since Jordan had secretly agreed only to take the West Bank and not incur into areas promised the Zionists by the UN General Assembly partition proposal and since Hashemite Iraq sent only a small force in support of Hashemite Jordan — it was really only Egypt that actually invaded, not “some Arab states.” But on the whole it is a much more accurate overview than anything you’ll see or hear in US corporate media.
