There is much misinformation and many outright lies spread today about

the facts of the Middle East conflict. In this broadcast Michael

Medved recounts the history of the small area of land which is modern

Israel. A remote and obscure territory of first the Roman Empire, then

the Ottoman Empire and later the British Empire, Jews, Arabs and

Christians have lived there for centuries. But bloody conflict between

these neighbors erupted after events following World War I and the

establishment of various Middle East states, including the State of

Israel. Why? Michael Medved presents facts to clarify a dark and

confusing segment of world history.

    Thumbs up on: Why They Fight

    Posted by Ronald Kemple on 11th Feb 2016

    Very interesting and relevant, full of information both old and new to me about the Israeli Arab conflict, and relating the Palestinian refugees to the Tories who had to flee the United States after our Revolutionary War with Britain was spot on.

    Michael Medved is a balanced and engaging historian. I wish this presentation was an automatic requirement for all Middle Eastern study programs!

    Hello, This had always been a subject of interest for me and I leaned a lot through this program! It really cuts through a lot of untruths that we typically hear about the conflict. I actually listened to it twice over the weekend. Thanks, -Jamie

    Shines a light on the true sources of today's conflict. Not what is covered in the media and not what I expected. An excellent context for understanding the Arab/Israeli conflict.
