Israel-Palestine 101 Recommended Resources
Are you wanting to educate yourself on the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict? Here is a list of ideal resources that covers the politics, history, theology, and more.
One of the best short books on the conflict. Looks at the competing narratives at play. Assigned it in many classes.

A haunting telling of true events during the Holocaust. You must understand the horror of the Holocaust to understand the present conflict.
Wonderful film on a Jewish community in Russia. Shows the richness of Jewish life and pogroms that launch early immigration to Palestine.
Fiddler On The Roof
Must-see. No debate. No ifs, ands, or buts. Watch the movie. You can't fully understand the conflict without understanding this narrative.
Another look at struggle to create a Jewish state. Not all accurate. Quite unbalanced, but moving and effective. Important to understand.

Occupied Voices: Stories of Everyday Life from the Second Intifada (Nation Books)
Graphic documentary of brutality of Israeli occupation.
Occupation 101 - Voices of the Silenced Majority
Feature film that follows the backstories of Palestinian suicide bombers. Not intended at all to justify, but rather to hear and understand.
Book by Palestinian doctor whose daughters were killed in Israeli strike. Powerful inspiring read.
I Shall Not Hate: A Gaza Doctor's Journey on the Road to Peace and Human Dignity
Raw footage of one Palestinian communities nonviolent resistance to the takeover of their land. Oscar nominated.
5 Broken Cameras
Hope-filled documentary on Israelis and Palestinians actively working for peace.
Essential read if you want to understand the power of the Israel lobby in America.
Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy
Brilliant film that dives into the complexities and shortcomings of Christian Zionism.
With God on Our Side
Excellent book on how Palestinians, and others, can read the Bible in a way that advocates for their liberation and not their oppression.
A Palestinian Theology of Liberation: The Bible, Justice, and the Palestine-Israel Conflict

Another Palestinian theologian writing on how to read the Bible faithfully in the Palestinian context.
Faith in the Face of Empire: The Bible through Palestinian Eyes
Exceptional book on the life and peacebuilding work of Abuna Elias Chacour
Blood Brothers: The Dramatic Story of a Palestinian Christian Working for Peace in Israel
Scores of primary sources relating to the development of the conflict. Very helpful.

My own publication on my stoires and reflections on peacebuilding with Christian Peacemaker Teams in the West Bank in 2012.
Letters from "Apartheid Street": A Christian Peacemaker in Occupied Palestine
Personally, I disagree with most of this book. But many people believe what he writes. Worth reading to understand common arguments.
