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.

I really enjoyed listening to the 2+ hours of the history of the Israel/Palestine conflict. One of the reasons I listen to Michael is his depth of knowledge of history and the interesting details he incorporates making his responses so interesting. I would suggest updating the reference to Bin Laden. It dates the program. I also enjoyed listening to the callers when they responded to the program.
The fact about Israel
This is the best 2:30 minutes of the history of Israel on the market. Forget everything you will hear or have heard about the conflict in Israel and just listen to Medveds clear, to the point history of the state of Israel. It is so enlightening it will change your view of the middle east. It is worth listening to several times!
Thank you Mr. Medved!
