The Israel-Palestine conflict: a brief, simple history

  • 🎬 Video
  • ℹ️ Description
The conflict is really only 100 years old.


One of the biggest myths about the Israel-Palestine conflict is that it's been going on for centuries, that this is all about ancient religious hatreds.

In fact, while religion is involved, the conflict is mostly about two groups of people who claim the same land. And it really only goes back about a century, to the early 1900s. At its heart, it is a conflict between two self-determination movements — the Jewish Zionist project and the Palestinian nationalist project — that lay claim to the same territory.

Britain promised Greek Cypriots to annex Cyprus to Greece. Later on they declined and caused Greek Cypriots to fight with British police. Britain assigned Turkish Cypriots as British police and started the war between Turkish and Greek Cypriots. Very similar scenarios in Palestine-Israel, India-Pakistan, and India-China...
