Gaza-Israel history (Part 2)


The history of the Gaza-Israel conflict dates back to the 1948 War, which saw the defeat of Arab armies along the coast of what is today Israel. Gaza was part of the UN partition plan of 1948 for the Palestinian people; however, the Palestinian territory was captured by Israel during the June Six Day War of 1967. While Israel returned the territory to the Palestinians in the early 2000s, Gaza continues to be a major issue for the Israelis, as the Palestinian Islamist group Hamas is in control of the area. Direct Impact’s Rick Sanchez hosts part 2 of a panel with Dr. Norman Finkelstein and Steve Malzberg to discuss the history of the Gaza-Israel conflict and why it remains a hot topic in the present day.
