Why Are Israel and Palestine Fighting?

Created by NowThis News, a liberal American media company, this educational video (04:07) presents a relatively balanced introduction to the history of the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict, starting from the early 20th century. Produced within the context of Operation Protective Edge, this video aims to put the 2014 Israel-Gaza conflict in its modern historical context, explaining the influence of WWI, the rise of nationalism, the Holocaust, and the conflicting promises made to both the Arabs and the Jews during the British Mandate period, while briefly mentioning the issues of Palestinian refugees, the cycle of violence, and failed peace talks.
