Understanding The Arab-Israeli Confliuct
A Brief History of Palestine
Stage of The Crisis
1895 - 1967
Fourth Zionist Congress decided to establish a national home for Jews in Argentina.
The Zionist congress decided the Jewish homeland should be Palestine.
The Palestine Liberation Organization was established.
The Palestine 'Revolution' began on 1 January.
Familiarity, in this country and throughout much of the Western world, with the US-Israeli view of this central conflict of our time has never been a problem, given the nature of official and media bias-, as panders especially toward the US Empire ambition. And it has wrought much sympathy for the Zionist cause for a very long time here. Though there is another quite different view as well, which sequence of major events above, however, maybe... just maybe helps one understand that other, Palestinian and larger Arab view of it, and what drives it.
But let it be said though as well, in the interest of objectivity and balance, that there is a significant and growing shared view of the truth behind these events with the Palestinians, by a growing body of Jewish opinion no less This we have addressed here before, because it is important to not tar all Jewish, as any religious or national group opinion with the same brush. They are no less complex a community than any other-, neither all good nor all bad as a value judgement.
