Israel´s History and the History of Israel: Mario Liverani
There are just so many of those things that history is holding inside and whenever one tries to look over for the facts which are left behind, there is that amazing and astounded feeling of getting overwhelmed. So is the case with History of Israel which talks about so many of those things that happened with the existence of this country. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Andrea Giordani.

The first comprehensive yet accessible history of the state of Israel from its inception to present day, from Daniel Gordis, ´´one of the most respected Israel analysts´´ (The Forward) living and writing in Jerusalem. Israel is a tiny state, and yet it has captured the world´s attention, aroused its imagination, and, lately, been the object of its opprobrium. Why does such a small country speak to so many global concerns? More pressingly: Why does Israel make the decisions it does? And what lies in its future? We cannot answer these questions until we understand Israel´s people and the questions and conflicts, the hopes and desires, that have animated their conversations and actions. Though Israel´s history is rife with conflict, these conflicts do not fully communicate the spirit of Israel and its people: They give short shrift to the dream that gave birth to the state and to the vision for the Jewish people that was at its core. Guiding us through the milestones of Israeli history, Gordis relays the drama of the Jewish people´s story and the creation of the state. Clear eyed and erudite, he illustrates how Israel became a cultural, economic, and military powerhouse - but also explains where Israel made grave mistakes and traces the long history of Israel´s deepening isolation. With Israel, public intellectual Daniel Gordis offers us a brief but thorough account of the cultural, economic, and political history of this complex nation, from its beginnings to the present. Accessible, levelheaded, and rigorous, Israel sheds light on Israel´s past so we can understand its future. The result is a vivid portrait of a people and a nation reborn.

The Israel – Palestine conflict is the ongoing conflict of Middle East, which finds its roots in mid-20th century will fall of the Ottoman Empire and migration of Jews. The conflict is attributable to 95% of the problems on Middle East. The conflict is between the Jews and the Arabs however it is not religious, but about the land. The Jews want Israel to be recognized as an independent Jewish state and the Palestinian want Jews to vacate their land. Both sides have been using all means possible to achieve this aim and have even gone to war thrice. The conflict is still active with no respite what so ever past 100 years or so. Many nations and UN have tried to resolve the issue but the intangible are too far from any solution. The conflict is also seen as one of the most difficult conflicts to resolve by both sides as well as international community. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Andrea Giordani.
