In which John Green teaches you about the conflict in Israel and Palestine. This conflict is often cast as a long-term beef going back thousands of years, rooted in a clash between religions. Well, that's not quite true. What is true is that the conflict is immensely complicated, and just about everyone in the world has an opinion about it. John is going to try to get the facts across in under 13 minutes.

this video tried to be unbiased and objective but failed to mention how the USA played a big - negative- part in the conflict by helping Israel with money and weapons allowing them to win vast lands in wars and also by vetoing sooo many UN propositions in favor of the Palestinians. Yes the Brits are largly to blame for this mess but the American governments havent been innocent either. Trying to help with peace negotiations doesnt negate that.

WOW! Thanks so much for this... simplified the conflict greatly for me. In a side takeaway.. you say this isn’t per se a religious conflict between muslims and jews, but it IS complicated by CHRISTIANS - particularly EVANGELICALS in the United States, who do look do look at this issue through a prophetic/messianic lens, and who also have a big influence on US foreign policy - the US also being the strongest ally of Israel.

The Preity Experience
Kashmir is not a disputed territory. It acceded to India in 1947. Pak has ZERO claim on it. Their identity as a Muslim india depends on kashmir acceding to Insia, which it did not. So they will keep fighting for something that is not and will never be thiers. The whole world knows this and slowly are isolating themselves from this terror state.

Diah Hammoud So what if he wrote about Palestine. There were no Arabs living in Palestine in 500 bc. However, Jews were living there. Also, Palestine is a name given to the region. It has no nationality, statehood, kingdom, ethnic, sovereignty or tribal identity. Palestine is simply the name of a region like the Alps are the name of a mountain range. People who live in the alps are called Alpine, whether they are Spanish, French, Swiss or Italian.
James Tavella
James Tavella Vor 2 years
rami2021 except it wasn’t all Britain’s fault, especially the division in the communities which was already happening before the mandate. This site is being very misleading on that. Also, Jews and Christians had limited rights and couldn’t own land under the Ottoman Empire. Zionism started in 1850 when the weakening Ottoman Empire finally stopped enforcing laws that made It illegal to sell land to Jews and foreigners in Palestine. Jews around the world formed nonprofit organizations and started purchasing land in Palestine. Most of the useable land in Palestine was owned by Absentee landlords living in Syria. The locals were mostly nomadic tenants. The rest of the land was either open land or unusable because the locals did have the knowledge to properly develop it. So the Zionist bought it up, develop it and migrated in. The increase in Zionist land purchases and migration is what caused tension. Also, Zionist did try to avoid buying occupied land but there were occasional evictions that did take place which didn’t help. Zionist started their own communities, farms and their own marketplaces which affected the economy of the area a bit negatively for the locals. This was another tension point. Finally, when the British took over, Palestine, Arab migration into the area increased as the British need labor for development. So you had Arabs from places like Syria who didn’t have the same sentiment for Jews as the original locals did. So it wasn’t one thing creating division and tension. It was many different contributing factors.

Thank you for always posting very informative videos! I appreciate the content, especially for school. I just wanted to add a bit of information: Theodor Herzl “became convinced that the Jewish people needed to leave Europe and settle in their own state” because of the Dreyfus affair. This was when Alfred Dreyfus (a Jew) was falsely charged for treason despite clear evidence of his innocence. The Dreyfus affair was the turning point that made Herzl realize that Jewish assimilation would not solve the underlying Antisemitism and that the only way for Jewish people to be guaranteed safety from persecution would be to have a national homeland for the Jews, where they would not be a minority.

@Perspective GovernsU I didnt see any mention of Ireland owing the British a thanks, did I miss that bit?
Perspective GovernsU
Not my words, but the words of a Lifelong historian. Great Britain has done more positive good, spread more hope and wealth and prosperity, and been a part of more marches towards freedom than any country or group of countries in the history of mankind. They did not do it perfectly, usually. They did not do it altruistically, often. They did not do it without negative repercussions, occasionally. But they did do it. Were I to create a list of who and whom owes what to the past and present inhabitants of the Isles of Great Britain, it would exceed by many fold the list which would be in omission. We could go back hundreds of years in our search, and go forward for hundreds more, yet still the result would bear the same. No people in the history of mankind have done for the positive good of more of mankind than the people who have inhabited the Isles of Great Britain. Every black inhabitant in the Western Hemisphere owes his and her freedom in the present age to the moral steadfastness of the Royal Navy stopping, by force, the Atlantic slave trade. This forced the issue to determine the fate of slavery as a whole, and it was a fate determined overwhelmingly upon moral grounds. British moral grounds, first. Every black African in Africa has never to worry about being enslaved by slavers and sold overseas or to Arab lands because institutionalized slavery is effectively dead and gone. Without Great Britain stopping the slave trade in the Atlantic, slavery still exists. Every Indian who enjoys the modicum of freedoms they posess they can directly thank the teachings and laws of Great Britain and the people who forced it upon your ancestors. Same with Pakistan, South Africa, Egypt, (good lord, this list will go on for a while…) Every American, Canadian, Australian, New Zealander, (good heavens, this list will go on for a while, too) who exists in freedom, potential prosperity and actual peace ruled in a land of laws may directly thank the peoples of Great Britain for exporting it to them, and all the economic and spiritual infrastructure given them by the British. Every European who does not speak German can thank directly a still living British Veteran of World War II who fought to save all the world. Every European who does speak German can thank directly a still living British Veteran of World War II who fought to save all the world from your forefathers. Every Asian who does not speak Japanese can thank directly a still living British Veteran of World War II who fought to save all the world. Every Asian who does speak Japanese can thank directly a still living British Veteran of,World War II who fought to save all the world from your forefathers. After the French surrendered in the Summer of 1940, the entire focus of all the Wehrmacht and Luftwaffe was exclusively pointed at Great Britain. Eventually the Germans found other places to invade, as they always did, but for a long while there only 1 place on earth stood up against the Nazis. All those people had one thing in common: They were British. Far from being an Island of Angels, the British have had more than their share of what would today be considered politically incorrect beliefs and practices. The people who enjoy pointing out these historical facts (and suppositions) would be wise to inquire what it is which the British brought them which is allowing them to so voice these facts. Education? Infrastructure? Rule of law? Democracy? Freedom? Tolerance? Economy? Life? Because almost no country in existence is untouched for the better because of the British, and almost every country has been moved forward for the better because of the British. Some countries owe virtually every aspect of their entire existance to that which the British gave them. Mine is one. My country had to definitively deal with our own slavery sins due directly to the cessation of the African slave trade exclusively because of the British, and look where that wholly altruistic effort has led us? Who was our 44th President? Does anyone reading this, in English, really need any lessons in what the British have given them? Why are they respected? Because for us, the Americans, we owe our very existence to the British. All the food, clothes, medicine, housing, machinery, vaccinations, seeds, fertilizer and money we give away - give away - we do so because of our national values and beliefs. And no place on earth is more responsible for instilling within us those values and beliefs than Great Britain. The Russians breathing today can thank a still living World War II British Veteran directly who not only kept the Germans from putting every division they had against the Soviet Union, but also fought all the way into Germany to help destroy your most hated adversary ever. They even forgave who you were allied to for the first 2 years of the war, when you or your direct ancestors were invading and occupying free and independent nations out of sheer avarice. The British were Imperialists, colonialists and several other “ists" which have recently been renounced as evil. Yet everywhere they went, that bunch of scrappy little pale yet proper businessmen made life better in one way or another. Often it was done at the end of a gun. Usually it involved some resistance. Invariably they ended up walking away. But now you, we all, are better for it. This list of who owes what to the British could stretch out for millions, millions of words. The list of what the British as a whole regret doing would be infinitessimally smaller. Most significantly, taking into context the shared values of the day and the values of the people who were subject to British Rule at the time of their intersection, the list of British failures both morally and philanthropically would be dwarfed by their successes. And influential? Only Rome deserves to be uttered in the same breath as the British Empire in terms of influence. And the British win that argument, too. As why this question was asked in this particular manner…. When a poor nation meet with a wildly advanced civilization, the defeated descendents do often feel anger towards the victors. The truth is that no matter where you are from, life is exponentially better for you now because of their subjugation to the British than you would be had your ancestors never met them. Sorry, but it's true. We all have parents, and for the next 20 generations or so, our cultural parents will be the Brits. Whether you're Chinese, Pakistani, Indian, American, Egyptian, or a host of other, more obvious countries, you, personally, owe living Brits respect and thanks. Thanks for not surrendering to the Axis. Thanks for exporting the rule of law. Thanks for economic infrastructure. Thanks for religious tolerance in most places. Thanks for elevating the status of women. Thanks for the cessation of slavery. Thanks for the breaking of inherited social stigmas. Thanks for the freedom of the seas and the economic impact of that freedom.

as also an American jew, first wassap fellow jew, next if you look on the political left and alt-right you see more anti zionism involved as well as anti semitism because they are basically the same. In the case with trump id say he used some big words but I can also agree with it, as you see with Cortez who actively tries to boycott Israel and conveniently lyes on the left side of politics, another thing is you can see a lot of democrats saying that Israel is illegitimate and racist etc... and not to mention its the only Jewish state. A lot was left out of this video including how the Jews owned the land long before the Romans did.

@Zeynep Ilgın my friend in research we have the consensus and not 'nations education' to guide us. Now I came from Pontiac Greeks but I believe the Greek cleansing was not necessarily a genocide. This is indeed ambiguous. The Armenians thought were centrally eliminated due to fear of the Turks and the Germans to their connection to Russia during WWI. Now I absolutely support the hypothesis that the Ottomans were better rulers than let's say British, but the Armenian cleansing was centrally designed. This is a historical truth. Awareness for such events, not just for the Ottomans , help us not repeat them in the future.

@Kristian G. we need to outgrow this topic! In Turkey, when we study history, we are studying that we did not mean to do a genocide, and the fact is that just like you have a proof that we did genocide, we also have many documents proving that we did not. Sometimes this is what happens in history, both sides have a point showing that they are right. May be things got horribly wrong, or may be the proof is manipulated we cannot know that. We also know that you did bad things to Azerbaijan people in the past. However, these were all in the past and we must step out of our boarders and accept each other as human beings! No one should have kept responsible for the things some people did years and years ago. I did not have any control in that, just like you also did not. Cultures, people, communities change and being stuck in an idea of a war/genocide/etc will not gonna let us grow as a community... remembering the past is important but we should not live in it... I respect and love you, dear stranger, just like I love everyone in this world. I see you away from every thing that happened in the past, I cannot blame you to think like that because I know that if I was born in Armenia, I'd think exactly the same. Take care, you and your family in these hard times, I wish you health. I didn't write this to argue you or change your mind but we have so much hatred for each other and this makes me sad...

It supposed to be because Abrahamic religion need to respect each other.Just difference in theology at first but shared same culture like fasting. When European take Christianity as religion(and obviously change the way of Christ) , they make Islam and Jews as enemy. I am not saying christianity was bad, there are lot of political power used religion to justify their greed.What happen to philipine and South african was horrible.

@Shuli Dernis Well in Judea it teaches that the Jews can't have a state until their prophet comes. Theodore Herzls teachings, (which is what Zionism follows) calls for a Jewish State, and in fact something called "greater Israel". So it is going against orthodox teachings of Judea.

In that region there were people of different ideologies cohabiting and living in harmony, which means all of the region was a public property for all of them. Then a certain group decided they deserve to have a piece of the land for their own, and once they had the power, they did it.. This is the whole story. Judge it as you like

You did a great work in making this video and you tried to show things in a reality..I see the biggest problem is that the Arab nations will not re settle the displaced Arabs. After the Arab v Israeli conflict in 1948-50 conflict the Arabs refused to resettle these displaced people in their own homelands as 99.9% of all the land in the Middle East is ruled by Arabs. It is a shame that lands were not given in exchange for losing lands.650,000 Jews were expelled from Arab lands losing all their properties. Saudi Arabia alone is more 100 times bigger than the tiny state the Holy Land.This is more than meets the eye. This is the fulfillment of biblical prophecies that Jerusalem would be a very important place in end times history. Zechariah 12:2. Jerusalem will be a burdensome stone for all nations. How true? Jerusalem has only ever been the capital of one country and lay in ruins under the Muslim conquests

This was an interesting summary. Most videos of this type can't seem to resist taking a political position on the subject, and two people each insisting the other is wrong never really goes anywhere. This is a productive place to start an actual discussion, by recognizing the validity of everyone's experience and historical claims. I'm kind of interested to see if people in the comments run with it or revert to finger pointing.

To all those getting the simplistic take-home from this: 'The Brits ruined it all'... - As a Brit born in 1965, in the here and now there is little I can do about the actions of my grandfather's political leaders. - Britain just happened to be a big player on the world stage at the time in history when there was going to be an inevitable migration of Jews, a reverse of the Diaspora. We did not invent the idea of a rebirth of Israel, we tried to respond to what was already happening, with consideration given to all sides. - Would any other nation have done any better a job, taking into account the complexities and global changes post WW1. Look at your own country's history, has it always handled external conflict perfectly? Has it got a good record of internal ethnic peace and cohesion? Probably not. - Hindsight is wonderful. Nobody has it in advance when plans are drawn up. - Missed opportunities by myopic Palestinians and Israelis are the real issue.

I'm confused, on the 1st half of the video, John referred to them as Jews and Palestinians (because it's the name of their country) then proceeded to refer to them as Arab and Israelites. Did the jews rename the country when they won the war? And why did the jews need to leave Europe? Why were they in Europe in the first place? I'm a noob so, can someone enlighten me on this matter?
TrichVlogger Vor 2 years
Basically, Jews have called the land Israel (Yisrael) since biblical times. In 69 CE, they were exiled from Israel by the Roman, and some of them ended up in what we called Europe. The Jewish people who ended up in Europe are called Ashkenazi Jews. They needed to leave Europe because of increasing anti Semitism and what lead to the holocaust. So when the modern state of Israel was established in 1948, they didn’t technically rename it bc it had been called Israel before. However, it wasn’t called Israel when it was under British rule. It was called the British mandate of Palestine. Hope this helps.
