I will take requests to upload any partial selections for focused discussion if any wishes to. I am trying to teach facts and build consensus, not control how anyone thinks. If I can learn too, this is one of my life missions, to not overlook any learning opportunities. Thank you for any participation. — I will do the same thing for any documentaries not already available if there are requests that can be legally met, I will do so. — don’t forget to subscribe and check daily.
President Clinton, Yasser Arafat, the Israeli Prime Ministers, their generals and advisers and those behind the suicide bombs and assassinations tell what happened behind closed doors as peace talks gave way to the violent struggle of the Palestinian intifada.
Uploaded under the fair use doctrine of US copyright law, this is yet another PBS documentary that is using moral equivalence to be “balanced” by showing both sides equally at fault, regardless of the actual evidence. If you decide in advance that no group can ever be taking a morally superior position, then you end up “correcting” the evidence to show “balance” and in this way, the fight will never end because the Palestinian leadership can’t accept sovereignty from non-Muslims. No matter how just the Israeli position is, since the British Empire defeated the Turks, the unspoken expectation was that no matter how many other non-Muslims once lived in the region, none of them can ever have sovereignty over Muslims, or this will be declared as “unjust” in the eyes of Sharia law.
By caving in decades ago and failing to examine the whole body of evidence, the West took their collective eye off the truth while contending with the Cold War, and then certain delusional presidents come along and want to sweep the facts under the rug by enforcing a purely political compromise, when the Jewish State spent decades already caving in to their absolute lowest bottom-dollar position. Yet no matter where they start, the new negotiators come in and ask as much compromise again from each, not noticing that the Arab Muslims have NEVER acquiesced at all! The Jews make promises that they keep, and the Arab Muslims are not expected to. This is racism. Characters like Chomsky start the “evidence” from June 5 as if the whole region fell out of the sky that morning.
Anyone who forms an opinion without starting their research in the 1930s, or earlier, is allowing themselves to be deceived out of laziness and narcissism.
Once enough viewers have started by becoming familiar with these 9 segments from PBS, the 6 segments of ‘The 50 Years War’ and the 3 segments here in, “Elusive Peace” can we begin to take concrete steps to a constructive reconciliation based on truth,
There will never be peace until the majority of constituents stops falling back on the sound bites of their favorite politician, and finds out the truth, and discovers the lies used to mis-characterize the West (those that support the democratic nation of Israel) and Israel itself.
