BBC - The Birth of Israel (2008)

The Birth of Israel

History, Sociopolitical Documentary hosted by Jeremy Bowen and published by BBC in 2008 - English narration



Jeremy Bowen presents a look back at the creation of the state of Israel, examining the the events leading up to the Israeli war of Independence in 1949, its impact on Arab/Israeli relations and the implications for the Middle East.

This discription doesn't do this documentary justice. It's a one hour crash course in some of the underlying causes of the current problems in the Middle East.

see the further links for much deeper background information, and also a link to a site that disagrees with pretty much anything this documentary shows. Never mind some points they raise were nowhere implied as they seem to infer they were. It's inevitable in this conflict.
