We hear time and time again how the Arab states hate the U.S. for its support of Israel. In those same arguments, we hear that the bulk of all the middle east wars and terrorism center around the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Well, I decided it was time to learn about this conflict in hopes of understanding the world we live in.
I found a site that provides a good timeline of events from the beginning days of Israel in biblical times, right up to the modern day. Of course, this is but one source, so I will continue to seek out other sources in an attempt to uncover the whole picture from all angles.
I wanted to take this moment to share with you the site and ask you to read the history as well… this link will take you to the first of about a dozen pages that chronicle the formation of today’s middle east. As you reach the end of the page, just click on the next topic on the right side of the page to follow the story.
Happy Learning…: http://www.cbc.ca/news/indepth/mideast/index.html
