Conflict in Israel and Palestine: Crash Course World History 223
In which John Green teaches you about conflict in Israel and Palestine. This conflict is often cast as a long-term beef going back thousands of years, and rooted in a clash between religions. Well, that's not quite true. What is true is that the conflict is immensely complicated, and just about everyone in the world has an opinion about it. John is going to try to get the facts across in under 13 minutes.

The Middle East Problem
The Middle East conflict is framed as one of the most complex problems in the world. But, in reality, it's very simple. Israelis want to live in peace and are willing to accept a neighboring Palestinian state. And most Palestinians do not want Israel to exist. As Dennis Prager explains, this is really all you need to know. In 5 minutes, understand how Israel was founded, and how, since that auspicious day in 1948, its neighbors have tried to destroy it, again and again.  Donate today to PragerU! http://l.prageru.com/2ylo1Yt Joining PragerU is free!

Semester after semester, we studied the Middle East conflict as if it was the most complex conflict in the world -- when in fact, it is probably the easiest conflict in the world to explain. It may be the hardest to solve, but it is the easiest to explain. In a nutshell, it’s this: One side wants the other side dead. Israel wants to exist as a Jewish state and to live in peace. Israel also recognizes the right of Palestinians to have their own state and to live in peace. The problem, however, is that most Palestinians and many other Muslims and Arabs, do not recognize the right of the Jewish state of Israel to exist. This has been true since 1947, when the United Nations voted to divide the land called Palestine into a Jewish state and an Arab state. The Jews accepted the United Nations partition but no Arab or any other Muslim country accepted it. When British rule ended on May 15, 1948, the armies of all the neighboring Arab states -- Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Transjordan, and Egypt -- attacked the one-day old state of Israel in order to destroy it. But, to the world’s surprise, the little Jewish state survived. Then it happened again. In 1967, the dictator of Egypt, Gamal Abdel Nasser, announced his plan, in his words, “to destroy Israel.” He placed Egyptian troops on Israel’s border, and armies of surrounding Arab countries were also mobilized to attack. However, Israel preemptively attacked Egypt and Syria. Israel did not attack Jordan, and begged Jordan’s king not to join the war. But he did. And only because of that did Israel take control of Jordanian land, specifically the “West Bank” of the Jordan River. Shortly after the war, the Arab states went to Khartoum, Sudan and announced their famous three “No’s: “No recognition, no peace, and no negotiations,” What was Israel supposed to do? Well, one thing Israel did, a little more than a decade later, in 1978, was to give the entire Sinai Peninsula -- an area of land bigger than Israel itself, and with oil -- back to Egypt because Egypt, under new leadership, signed a peace agreement with Israel. So, Israel gave land for the promise of peace with Egypt, and it has always been willing to do the same thing with the Palestinians. All the Palestinians have ever had to do is recognize Israel as a Jewish state and promise to live in peace with it. But when Israel has proposed trading land for peace -- as it did in 2000 when it agreed to give the Palestinians a sovereign state in more than 95% of the West Bank and all of Gaza -- the Palestinian leadership rejected the offer, and instead responded by sending waves of suicide terrorists into Israel. Meanwhile, Palestinian radio, television, and school curricula remain filled with glorification of terrorists, demonization of Jews, and the daily repeated message that Israel should cease to exist. So it’s not hard to explain the Middle-East dispute. One side wants the other dead. The motto of Hamas, the Palestinian rulers of Gaza, is: “We love death as much as the Jews love life.” For the complete script, visit https://www.prageru.com/videos/middle-east-problem

The 1948 Israeli War of Independence
The 1948 Israeli War of Independence began when the United Nations decided to partition Palestine into separated Jewish and Arab states. The Arabs were not staisfied with the deal, as they wanted Palestine to be for Arabs only. They said that they would "fight for every inch of our country." Riots ensued almost immediately after the Partition Plan was approved. Arabs were able to take over many British military bases, and used the weaponry they acquired to launch attacks on Jewish communities. Jewish militias fought back, and after the British left Palestine, Israel was declared a state. The 1948 War of Independence was a conflict that was instigated by the proposition of a compromise. For that reason, the topic is consistent with the theme of "Conflict and Compromise," though the order in which the two take lace in my topic is not identical to the order of the2007-2008 National History Day theme. The compromise occurred before the conflict.

5min vers. Palestine & Israel: A history lesson from 1947 when it all began
Many people in this world are still confused as to why the war between Palestine and Israel began. Many are unaware of the circumstances that took place to set this entire scenario up and only through ignorance are they able to maintain beliefs that are falsely founded. Mike Peled son of an Israeli General and uncle to a 13 year old niece who was killed by Palestinian suicide bombers does a great job dispelling the myths and pointing out the historical beginnings to this never ending war. In my effort to learn more about the never ending Palestinian/Israeli war (because let's face it, most of us probably don't know shit; only what our TVs have taught us), and where/why it all began I came across an hour long presentation by Mr.Peled; I edited it down to 11 minutes to only show the historical facts he deemed important to mention regarding this conflict's birth, evolution & endless cycle. Please share so that people with the incorrect facts and beliefs may understand the truth.

Palestinians Demand Human Rights & Medical Care in Fight to Break Israeli Naval Blockade of Gaza
https://democracynow.org - Four Israeli warships intercepted a flotilla Tuesday that tried to challenge Israel’s naval blockade of the Gaza Strip. More than a dozen unarmed people were on board, including injured protesters and cancer patients seeking medical treatment abroad. The protest coincided with the eighth anniversary of Israel’s attack on the Turkish Mavi Marmara flotilla, which killed nine activists while the boat was sailing in international waters. We speak with Ramadan al-Hayek, one of the organizers of the Gaza flotilla, and Zohar Chamberlain Regev, an Israeli citizen who is on board the Freedom Flotilla ship Al Awda (The Return), which just arrived in the port of Amsterdam. The flotilla set sail April 30 from the Norwegian port of Bergen and plans to arrive in Gaza in July.

Israeli-Iranian proxy war
Support CaspianReport on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/CaspianReport BAKU - Over the weekend, on the night between December 1st and 2nd, an unidentified aircraft fired five missiles at a military position that was undergoing renovations in the Damascus province in Syria. Two of the missiles were intercepted but the airstrike still caused substantial damage. Although Israel did not take responsibility for the airstrike, no one has any illusions about the identity of the warplanes that conducted the attack. Likewise, no one has misconceptions about the purpose of the Iranian base that was bombed. The sequence of events shows that the Israeli and Iranian rivalry is entering a new phase. The two are in fact waging a war by other means.

Gaza: The Man Behind the Peace - Israel/Palestine
Israel and Palestine, 1994 A historic report filmed during the proposed Norweigan Middle East peace plan. PLO leader Yasser Arafat and Israeli Foreign Minister Shimon Peres chat and joke over an informal lunch in the Gaza strip -such a meeting seems unlikely, but this is no ordinary lunch. It is hosted by the remarkable Norwegian Terje Larsen, known by many in the Middle East as 'Mr Peace'. This narrative story follows the planning of 'Larsen's Lunch' as organisers ensure neither side will face danger or insult. While their leaders arrive by helicopter and limousine, Palestinian and Israeli security forces eye each other across a dusty street. For Larsen they work together to protect 'all' the important guests. Both Larsen and his diplomat wife Mona Juul played a significant role in the Middle East peace process. Their relaxed style is a breath of fresh air although somewhat unorthodox. Larsen even persuades Arafat and Peres to pose for photographs with Palestinian waiters. This feature offers a behind-the-scenes look at the Larsen way to peace.

Origins of Israel Palestinian Conflict
Support CaspianReport through Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/CaspianReport The Israeli Arab conflict is the result of interactions of superpowers in the early 20th century. British and French strategic interests in the Middle East were related to the Mediterranean trading route, which went from the Suez channel to Indian markets. But the presence of the Ottoman navy based in the Levant was a direct threat to British interests. So the British and the French decided to divide the Middle East into smaller entities and countries to make it impossible for the Ottoman Empire to control them all. A century later, the legacy of European colonization of the Arab world is reflected by its many ongoing conflicts.

A Humanist Approach to the Israel-Palestine Conflict - Simon Pratt
On Dec 16, Simon Pratt discussed the ongoing conflict between Israel and Palestine. The Israel-Palestine conflict is one of the most contentious issues in international politics today. Spanning over a century of on-going fighting, and featuring at least four major wars and a number of smaller but nevertheless significant military engagements, this struggle over a piece of land half the size of Vancouver Island has dominated both Middle Eastern politics and been the focus of unparalleled global attention. Like no other subject, it inflames passions and splits opinion, with extremists of both the far left and the far right intervening to sustain the violence and partisan forces doing battle across the world, from the streets of Paris to the streets of Tel Aviv. This conflict has brought much suffering. It continues to do so, particularly for Palestinian communities currently living under conditions of occupation but also for Israeli communities living under threat of attack. As Humanists we should care about it; most of us already do. But the public discourse on Israel-Palestine is home to an astonishing array of myths, distortions, falsehoods, and simplistic narratives that serve to retard, rather than advance, the possibility of peaceful resolution. This presentation should correct some of those common misunderstandings. It consists of two parts. The first is a history lesson. Spanning the tensions caused by the first waves of Jewish immigrants to what was then the Ottoman province of Syria through to the present day, paying particular attention to the birth of the Palestinian refugee crisis and the role of security, it shows the complex context to the conflict. The second is a plan for the future. Examining the diplomatic and security situation as it stands now, and considering the powers and agendas of major actors - Israel, the Palestinian Authority, Hamas, the US, Egypt - it outlines one way in which a just and lasting peace might be achieved. Bio: Simon is a PhD student in the Department of Political Science in the University of Toronto. He holds a Masters degree from the Department of War Studies, of King's College London, and has published academic articles on the Israel-Palestine conflict, as well as studied in Israel on multiple occasions.
Lessons Learned from Failures and Successes of the Israeli-Palestinian Peace Negotiations
0:00 Introduction by Michael Molloy 3:53 Yair Hiershfeld 46:36 Question period Dr. Hirschfeld will provide an insider account on the reasons why Secretary Kerry’s Peace Initiative for the Middle East failed, and will discuss why a less ambitious effort would have prevented the foreseeable break-down of negotiations. Hirschfeld will argue that the definition of peace, as such, is decisive for a successful outcome. It has to be understood that “peace is not a piece of paper, or a given moment, but an ongoing process, when former enemies learn gradually to trust each other.” Based on this basic understanding Hirschfeld will describe the causes that permitted the successful conclusion of the Oslo Accords, and the dramatic inside story, that caused later failures and set-backs. Hirschfeld will analyze the importance and problems of US mediation, of other inputs of the international community, as well as the impact of the regional powers, and particularly the ongoing struggle between radical militant Islamic state- and non-state actors, with the pragmatic pro-Western Arab states and Israel.

How two feuding countries are tearing apart the Middle East. Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO The Saudis and Iranians have never actually declared war on each other. Instead, they fight indirectly by supporting opposing sides in other countries and inciting conflicts. This is known as proxy warfare. And it’s had a devastating effect on the region. Countries, especially poor ones, can’t function if there are larger countries pulling strings within their borders. And that’s exactly what's happening in the Middle East. The Saudi-Iranian rivalry has become a fight over influence, and the whole region is a battlefield.

These Israeli Settlers Are Refusing To Leave Gaza

The'y’ve vowed to sabotage Ariel Sharon’s disengagement plan. “We will not be driven out. We intend to remain here,” vows settler Moshe Saperstein defiantly. Having lost an arm in the Yom Kippur war and been wounded in a terrorist attack, he’s already fought for the right to live in Gaza. Now, he’s preparing to take on the Government. And he'’s not alone. The settlers’ organisation, Yesha Council, plans to deploy 100,000 settlers to the Gaza strip and West Bank to resist the evictions. “We hope to gain experience from civil disobedience demonstrations all over the globe,” states Yisrael Medad, spokesperson for Yesha Council. They’re also considering ways of combating the wide international support Sharon has gained for his disengagement plan. One option is to send “people to Washington to work on Congress, especially among the right wing, neo-conservatives and Christian Right.” But while the settlers plan their resistance, Palestinians in Gaza are eagerly awaiting their departure. “We want to live in happiness, without any fear and with freedom of movement,” states resident Abu Anwar Ghaly. For now, there is a wary calm in Gaza. But both sides know this peace could easily be shattered.

International Law Expert: Israel Is Not an “Occupier”
Israel Is Not an “Occupier” International law defines “occupation” as one power occupying the lands of a foreign sovereign. In Israel's case, Israel is not occupying any foreign sovereign’s land; Israel entered the area known as the West Bank in 1967 and took over the authority to administer the land from Jordan, which was never considered to be a sovereign in the area. In actual fact, Israel and the Jewish people have got claims to the area that go far back into history. Anybody who reads the Bible can appreciate the fact that there is a very solid historic legal basis to the claim of Israel with respect to the territories and therefore Israel considers the territories not to be occupied, not to be Palestinian, but as in dispute. We appreciate that the Palestinians also have claims with respect to the territory. Israel considers that its claims are far better based and better documented than any other claims, but Israel is committed to conduct negotiations with the Palestinians in order to find a permanent settlement to the issue. The Jordanians, who occupied the territory after the 1948 war, annexed it, but this annexation was never really recognized or acknowledged by the international community. At a later stage the king of Jordan voluntarily gave up any Jordanian sovereignty or claim to the territories to the Palestinian people. So the Jordanians came and went, and the issue remains an issue between the Israelis and the Palestinians. “Palestinian Territories” Is Not a Legal Term The international community’s constant referral to the “Palestinian territories” is a complete fallacy and has absolutely no legal or political basis. There has never been a Palestinian state, as such, and therefore the territories never belonged to any Palestinian entity. There's no international agreement, there's no contract, there's no treaty, and there's no binding international resolution that determines that the territories belong to the Palestinians. In actual fact, even the Palestinians themselves, in the Oslo agreement that they signed with Israel, acknowledge the fact that the ultimate permanent status of the territory is to be determined by negotiations. Therefore, even the Palestinians accept the fact that this is not Palestinian territory, its disputed territory whose status is yet to be settled. If the local population owns land, then the administrative power isn't allowed to take the land or use it. But if the land is not private, the administering power can use the land and enjoy the fruits of the land until sovereignty has been finally determined. So Israel justifiably can use land which is not private land, which is public land, for establishing settlements as long as these settlements don't take away the private rights of the local population. Therefore, in our opinion, the settlements are not illegitimate. The Settlements Are Not Illegitimate There's one other point, the issue of settlements is a negotiating issue. The Palestinians have agreed with the Israelis that the issue of settlements is one of the issues on the permanent status negotiating table. Therefore, anybody who comes along and claims that Israel’s settlements are illegitimate – whether it's the EU, whether it’s individual governments, whether it is the secretary of state of the United States, who said so specifically, or the spokesman of the State Department – they’re prejudging a negotiating issue, which is clearly incompatible with any negotiating principle. These are issues that have to be negotiated between Israel and the Palestinians. Therefore, nobody can claim that the settlements are illegitimate or that they're illegal, as such. They have to be negotiated between the parties. There's No Such Thing as 1967 Borders There's no such thing as 1967 borders. A border is a line between two sovereign entities. In 1967, there was a ceasefire line that had existed since the 1948-1949 war between the Arab states and Israel and after Israel declared its independence. The Jordanians insisted on inserting in the Armistice Agreement of 1949 a provision which says that the armistice demarcation line is not the final border. Final borders can only be determined in peace negotiations between the parties. So “1967 borders” is a non-existent term and anybody using this term – again, including the U.S. administration and the EU – are simply being misled.

Alan Baker is Director of the Institute for Contemporary Affairs at the Jerusalem Center and the head of the Global Law Forum.

USA vs USSR Fight! The Cold War: Crash Course World History #39
In which John Green teaches you about the Cold War, which was occasionally hot, but on average, it was just cool. In the sense of its temperature. It was by no means cool, man. After World War II, there were basically two big geopolitical powers left to divide up the world. And divide they did. The United States and the Soviet Union divvied up Europe in the aftermath of the war, and then proceeded to spend the next 45 years fighting over the rest of the world. It was the great ideological struggle, with the US on the side of capitalism and profit, and the USSR pushing Communism, so-called. While both sides presented themselves as the good guy in this situation, the reality is that there are no good guys. Both parties to the Cold War engaged in forcible regime changes, built up vast nuclear arsenals, and basically got up to dirty tricks. If you had to pick a bad guy though, I would point out that the USSR had no intention of bringing Laika the Cosmonaut Dog home alive. That poor dog never had a shot. Sorry to disappoint, but the economist t-shirts are not a real product. Thanks to Raoul Meyer for the YUGOGAL photo.

As John pointed out last week, the Cold War was occasionally hot, and a lot of that heat was generated in Asia. This is starting to sound weird with the hot/cold thing, so let's just say that the United States struggle against communist expansion escalated to full-blown, boots on the ground war in Korea and Vietnam. In both of these cases, the United States sent soldiers to intervene in civil wars that it looked like communists might win. That's a bit of a simplification, but John will explain it all to you.

U.S.  Foreign Wars & Conflicts - Overview
This PowerPoint, with activities, and lesson plans are available @: https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Mr-Raymond-Civics-Eoc-Academy This lesson is an overview of U.S. foreign wars and conflicts, with a focus on the government’s response. The conflicts involved include: the Mexican American War, the Spanish American War, World War I & II, the Cold War, Korean Conflict, the Vietnam War, Iran Hostage Crisis, Operation Desert Storm, 9/11, the Iraq & Afghanistan Wars, and “War on Terror.” Students will be provided an overview to consider how the American response to war and conflict has changed over the course of its history. Concepts included are: isolationism, neutrality, war powers of the U.S. government, and the expanding role of the U.S. as the “world’s police force.” Like most of the videos on Mr. Raymond’s Civics EOC Academy this video ends with a review “quiz.” Remember that the PowerPoint in this video as well as a variety of lesson plans and activities are available at Teachers Pay Teachers. Mr. Raymond’s Civics E.O.C. Academy was designed for students taking the Florida Civics End-of-Course (EOC) Exam. However, as many states are implementing Civics Exams, these videos will work for all students of Civics, US Government, and US History. Currently students have to pass a civics state exam in order to graduate in Idaho, Wisconsin, North Carolina, Arizona, North Dakota, Louisiana, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Utah – as well as state social studies tests such as Texas’ STAAR exam, as well as Virginia’s Civics SOL exam. These videos look at all of the civics benchmarks that will be tested on most state civics exams. As a civics teacher I have often looked for civics YouTube video clips to show my students. I hope these videos will serve as a supplement to lessons for civics teachers, US history teachers, US government teachers and their students. While they might be a little basic for AP Government students, they could serve as a refresher of basic concepts and content. I have also thought that these videos could help those who are going to take the naturalization test to become US Citizens. I have also been reached by parents whose children are taking Florida Virtual School’s (FLVS) Civics class.

HOW World War I Started: Crash Course World History 209

You'll learn about Franz Ferdinand, Gavrilo Pincep, the Black Hand, and why the Serbian nationalists wanted to kill the poor Archduke. You'll also learn who mobilized first and who exactly started the war. Sort of. Actually there's no good answer to who started the war, but we give it a shot anyway.

This Burning Land extended trailer
Greg Myre and Jennifer Griffin, journalists who are husband and wife, arrived in Jerusalem in 1999 with plans to begin a family and hopes of witnessing a historic Middle East peace deal. They soon found themselves raising two young daughters while covering the worst fighting ever between Israelis and Palestinians. In "This Burning Land," Myre, a former New York Times reporter, and Griffin, a Fox News correspondent, show readers how the conflict has changed dramatically over the past decade. They witness the pivotal events and delve into the thinking that motivates some Palestinians to be suicide bombers and others to work as informants for Israel's security forces. They travel to isolated West Bank outposts where Israeli settlers vow never to relinquish the land, and accompany young Israeli troops as they stage midnight raids in militant strongholds. They weave these stories together to addresses the fundamental paradox at the core of the conflict. Israel is stronger than it's ever been, with a vibrant society, a flourishing economy and a powerful military. Yet it cannot find a way to end the feud with the Palestinians. In turn, the world supports the Palestinian dream of statehood, and yet no such state is likely to emerge soon.

Luther and the Protestant Reformation: Crash Course World History #218
In which John Green teaches you about the Protestant Reformation. Prior to the Protestant Reformation, pretty much everyone in Europe was a Roman Catholic. Not to get all great man, but Martin Luther changed all that. Martin Luther didn't like the corruption he saw in the church, especially the sale of indulgences, so he left the church and started his own. And it caught on! And it really did kind of change the world. The changes increased literacy and education, and some even say the Protestant Reformation was the beginning of Capitalism in Europe.

Arabic/Eng/Nat Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat accused the Israelis on Saturday of mounting a cruel campaign of aggression against his people, and accused them of going back on their agreements. He condemned Israel's actions in the wake of the Jerusalem suicide bombing on July 30 which left 16 people dead, saying they were a declaration of war. Palestinian President Yasser Arafat said on Saturday that Israel had gone back on agreements in the aftermath of the Yehuda Mahane market bombing. The Palestinian government has been angered by the Israeli closure of the borders of the West Bank and Gaza after the suicide bomb. Arafat was guarded over the success of US envoy Dennis Ross's four day mission to the area. SOUNDBITE: (English) "Very difficult situation, because Netanyahu and his government are breaching what had been signed and on what had been agreed upon". Q: Can we say that Mr. Dennis Ross could succeed on his mission? A: "Partially yes. Not more than that". SUPER CAPTION: Yasser Arafat, Palestinian President Speaking later on Saturday in the town of Nablus, Arafat said that Israeli tactics were designed to put pressure on the Palestinians. But he said that the Palestinians would not succumb to that pressure. SOUNDBITE: (Arabic) "Netanyahu has said that the war is teaching us a lesson. He is teaching a lesson to the Palestinians. He is trying through this war to humiliate the Palestinians and he is trying also to starve us." SUPER CAPTION: Yasser Arafat, Palestinian President As well as closing borders Israel also stopped transferring tax revenues to the Palestinians after bombings. This has meant that government salaries, including those of the police, have not been paid. SOUNDBITE: (Arabic) "When Netanyahu declared war on us he forgot who he was speaking to. We refuse to submit to pressure from anybody. SUPER CAPTION: Yasser Arafat, Palestinian President Arafat has said that border closures since the bombing have left 220-thousand Palestinians employed in Israel without income. The Palestinians have maintained that the bombers, who have yet to be identified, were not from Palestinian-controlled areas.
