Israel and Palestine: An Animated Introduction

This video is a good introduction though it’s not entirely accurate or doesn’t include important facts.

The eminent Ilan Pappe argues that Israel’s “war of independence” was launched as smoke screen to ethnically cleanse the land of the native population.
