- Program Description
“In 1947, the United Nations voted to sponsor the partition of Palestine and to create sovereign states there for the Arabs and Israelis. Israel, fed by major immigration waves, grew in two decades into a sophisticated western-type state, with a strong economy and high level of culture. But the surrounding Arab nations refused to accept the United Nations mandate, and they fought three wars to overturn the settlement, Despite their successive defeats, they refused any concessions and insisted upon the repatriation of the hundreds of thousands of refugee Arabs, and the return of ‘every inch’ of occupied Arab land. The stalemate continued, half war and half peace, right into the 1970’s, and the area remained among the most troubled in the world.”
