Israel – Palestine For Critical Thinkers: #7

The Paris Peace Conference had profound effects on borders, and sovereignty throughout Europe and the Middle East. Representatives of the Zionist movement and the Arab delegation were present and made the case for Nationhood. But, despite their accord at the Conference, many significant questions were left unanswered.

Israel and Palestine Explained

A mini-documentary that takes you through the history of the conflict between the Israelis and Palestinians–from the establishment of Jerusalem as a holy city, all the way through Israel’s 2014 invasion of Gaza.

 

The delegation of the Zionist Organization led by Chaim Weizmann presented the case for a Jewish homeland in Palestine to the Paris Peace Conference at the conclusion of World War I.  The statement, which included suggested boundaries, proposed that the newly established British Mandate should promote Jewish immigration and settlement, encourage self-government and ensure religious freedoms. Zionist representatives to the conference presented their territorial claims, extending over Palestine and areas of the surrounding countries (Transjordan, Syria, Lebanon and Egypt).
