With all of the fighting going on now between the Jews and the Palestinians, the conflict might be hard for Americans to understand. So I am putting up a video which shows Miko Peled explaining the origins of the state of Israel and the history of the Palestinians.
One important point that Peled makes in his speech is that the current Jewish residents of Israel are not the descendents of King David and the original Jews who lived in Israel many years ago. This is something that you don’t often hear on present-day news shows about the conflict in the Middle East.
The video is quite long, but please watch it until the 47 minute mark, at which point Peled finishes his speech. Then you can watch the second video, which is a joke.
