Israel – Palestines Hundred Years War

Here is the must read on the Israel and Palestine Hundred Years Conflict . Remarkably it comes from the British who with the Balfour document and its post-haste retreat/deserting the scene  in 1947-48  under the duress of Israeli terrorist assasinations, sniper shootings  and carnage bombings – left Palestine as a steaming cauldron of mutually unsatisfied grievances and loathings. At least the Economist gets the broad strokes right here – the missed opportunities as two people fight over “LebensRaum”.

One might not agree with relative importance of  some of the conjectured causes – but the Economist has at least been frank and forthright in putting the major issues and historical facts on the table.
