Arab-Israeli Conflict (3)

This is the second of the four-part series on the Arab-Israeli conflict that I recently taught at CommUniversity. Part 2 covers the period from World War I to the eve of World War II. Here are the main themes:

  • The Ottoman Empire’s declaration of war against the Brits led to several British agreements that apparently contradicted each other and led to many of the modern problems.
  • The peace settlement following World War I really was “a peace to end all peace.”
  • Growing Jewish immigration into Palestine produced conflict with the Arabs there, a conflict that has not ceased.

Thanks for listening. I would be interested in your feedback or questions.
