A lot of stuff happened between 1948 and 1967, but somehow the most important events and personalities are able to be squeezed in without being shortchanged. It starts with the rebirth of Israel and the War of Independence that was immediately forced on the infant state, covers the 1956 war with Egypt, the Six-Day War of 1967, and the years of peace in between those events. However, to some viewers, it might feel as though it starts in media res, since a discussion of Israeli-Arab relations pre-1948 is vital to understanding more recent developments and why both sides feel the way they do.Read more ›
that much attention. The second time, I paid much more attention. And that is when I discovered that
it was as one-sided as I had originally thought. During the first go-round I believed that the Palestinian side would
be dealt with in some depth in part two. But if Part Two exists, I certainly can't find it on Amazon or anywhere else.
Make no mistake. On occasion there are some protests, by Jewish or Western persons, but a spokesperson on
the Arabian side just seem to show up in Part I, and certainly no explanation as to why they might think that evil
had been done to them.
This is simply a paean to the Jewish victory, a victory that is highly unlikely to last for long.
