The Israel-Palestine Conflict: A Brief, Simple History

Created by Vox, a liberal-leaning American news and opinion website, this informative video (10:19) presents an introduction to the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict, starting from the early 20th century. While putting the conflict into its modern historical context, this video focuses on how the failed peace process and Israel’s occupation leave both sides feeling hopeless, emphasizing the never ending issues of refugees, the cycle of violence, and settlements. This video claims that extremists on both sides use violence to derail peace and keep a permanent conflict going as they seek the other side’s total destruction.
