After decades of fighting radical Palestinian/Islamic narratives, at times with slightly over-idealized accounts of Zionism, this series takes a brand-new look at where we are and how we got here.
In addition to Jewish experts, the production features mostly Arabic and British/American researchers giving it a refreshing feel of authentic objectivity. The 3-part series JUST CAME OUT with ENGLISH SUBTITLES. In addition to modern research historians, it also includes rare archive interviews with those directly involved – British, Jewish and Arab decision makers (many speaking in English). Testimonial evidence comes to light which was supposed to have been destroyed, from the secret sessions of the Peel Commission in 1937. The secretary of the commission John Martin, disobeyed his orders and preserved the confidential testimonies. Now these testimonial archives have been opened.
The British understood clearly that their government had promised the land to two different peoples and there was going to be no easy way out of the debacle.
The Zionists felt the British mandate was maneuvering on behalf of Arab interests.
The local Arab “Palestinians” felt the British mandate was maneuvering on behalf of the Zionists.
But in hindsight, the British were mostly maneuvering for their own interests, and as these interests ebbed and flowed, they formed the outlines of the developing conflict.
Get a feel for this riveting chapter of land and tribes buffeted between world wars, a Holocaust, religions and empires. Even though it does not attempt to analyze the spiritual layer of the conflict, this series is highly recommended for viewing:
