The 50 Years War: Israel and the Arabs

The conflict in the Middle East between Israel and its neighbors is given comprehensive treatment in this award-winning documentary produced by PBS. Using archival footage and extensive interviews with participants, the production begins by explaining conditions in Palestine at the end of World War II and the crisis created by the exodus of European Jews who went to the Middle East after the Holocaust. The withdrawal of the British, who had controlled Palestine for decades, is detailed, as is the creation of the state of Israel. Much of the region’s history is complex, with the local struggles being conducted at times as a part of the cold war between the United States and the Soviet Union, but these videos do an admirable job of explaining the complexities of the situation.

The segment on the Six Day War, for example, is masterful, with the scenes shifting from Israel to Egypt to Washington to Moscow, the story developing before the viewer’s eyes. The 50 Years War is often a tale of mistrust and betrayal, but this production strives to present a balanced view of history, and is not only impressive for its command of the facts but for its skillful and often dramatic presentation of history.

Whatever your views are on the conflict, all should watch this masterful, detailed, and insightful documentary on the Arab-Israeli war.

An Unbiased Truth: Every religion tells us fables, they have own flaws, unanswerable questions, unquestionable answers and some degree of extremism towards own beliefs. A radical common thread in all of them is betterment of human life aligned with the nature, rest all are added contingencies as the history then demanded.

What you follow Religion or Virtues?: We humans have evolved enough to start realizing that we may not need religious identities anymore, as it is clear that every religion want to establish themselves supreme to others, which divides humans. Whatever religion you are, it is important to follow the right virtues advised by the God, rather proclaiming the religious identity. Are we following those virtues of kindness and love?

Differentiating God and Religion: We can separate the God from the religions, from the own words of the religions itself. In none of the religions the Gods remained so religious, but a righteous example of how to live a life. Based on this adjustability, humans started to follow a religion, which suits their way of life they wished to live.

We lack the intelligence: We cannot deny the existence of God, as our intelligence is not enough to judge that. Even just to understand the working of the earth and its nature, we lack intelligence, so judging God is far beyond.

We must Let Go Religions, Embrace Love; stop religious extremism and learn to live in peace and harmony first. Then only we can at least survive in the earth, else we will doom ourselves.
