Father Roy writes:

The Palestinian-Israeli conflict is the central problem facing the world today.  Thanks to a renowned Jewish historian by the name of Ilan Pappé for telling the truth about the causes of the conflict.

This interview will illustrate the gist of what Pappe teaches at the University of Exeter It’s not a short video, but it’s comprehensive:

Pappe’s work has been both supported and criticized by other historians.  Before he left Israel in 2008, he had been condemned in the Knesset, Israel’s parliament.  A minister of education had called for him to be sacked.  His photograph had appeared in a newspaper at the center of a target, and he had received several death threats. A number of Pappe’s essays can be read on the Internet: Ilan Pappe | The Electronic Intifada.
