The Truth About Israel and Palestine - by Stefan Molyneux

• youtube

The Israel-Palestine conflict has been raging on for decades and there seems to be no end in sight.

On July 8, 2014, Israel launched operation Protective Edge, carrying out airstrikes on 50 cities in the Palestinian Gaza Strip. The Israeli government claimed this was retaliation against rockets fired from Palestinian territories controlled by the Islamic political movement Hamas.

The July events are the latest of a series of bloody attacks between Israel and Palestine. What is the cause of all this violence and why are both sides so committed to it?

Note: At 0:41 Stefan says 50 cities instead of 50 targets.

(Publisher: A Comment from a trusted friend that most of you would know. I thought his comments worthy of posting but I didn't ask permission to post so I won't use his name) Hi Ernie, This is an FYI, and I don't want to turn it into "my issue," but, much of today's link from Stefan is worse than bullshit. His history is ridiculous, cherry-picked crap. He understands neither Judaism nor its history, and he could not have tried to learn anything. One phone call to someone like me would have voided 90% of what he says. And to say "the Jews believe" is crazy. There are hundreds of Jewish beliefs. Someone is feeding him "the worst things ever said by Jews," and he's painting millions of people with that brush. I have NEVER, EVER known a Jew who believes what is in this video. I spent time on the Board of a major synagogue, and I can tell you that no one ever endorsed any of these things. I am seeing lots of this stuff moving through the liberty community, and it is poison. First, it fills people with dark thoughts of hate and revenge. It also drags them back into state-consciousness. And if someone like me objects, they are portrayed as fully supporting everything that the worst possible Jew believes. (The usual "excluded middle" trick.) Then, they are said to "support Israel," which brings everything back to politics and the state-mind. I have no idea how far this will go, but trust me, this is how it always starts. Antisemitism is coming back, and to whatever extent it take roots in the liberty movement, it will poison and ruin it. All the best, ??????
