The next segment of my four-part series on the Arab-Israeli conflict tells the story from WWII to the eve of the Six Day War in 1967. Part 3 covers:

  • the chain of events set up by WWII that led Britain to give up the Palestinian mandate to the United Nations to resolve who should govern Palestine.
  • how the U.N. partition plan led to the independence of Israel and the Palestinian “naqba” (catastrophe).
  • the uniqueness of Israel and the development of key trends in the Arab World, especially national socialism

Here’s an important key: “The Nazi party in Hitler’s Germany was able to spread its anti-semitic propaganda in the Arab world in the 1930’s, and this has enormously complicated matters ever since. Why were they able to do this?” Listen and find out.

I hope you’ll leave a comment and let me know your thoughts.
