The Colonization of Palestine Part 2: A New Jew
June 25, 2017 The Movements: A Podcast History of the Masses

The Ottoman Empire is no more. The British have won the Great War, becoming "the Iron Wall" sought by the Zionist movement to strengthen their political position in Palestine. The Zionist Commission negotiates with Arab nationalist leaders outside of Palestine, bypassing Palestinians who have little politcal control of their own land. The theoretical "Arab Question" is becoming less theoretical, as Palestinians are not interested in leaving their homes unless forced. Unprecedented acts of violence and anti-Jewish riots terrify an increasingly militant Zionist movement, whose members are attempting to forge a new Jewish identity. The settlers who once fled European anti-semitism now set out to establish a European-Jewish society, carved out of the Middle East. As the political climate becomes increasingly sectarian, an all-out clash seems inevitable. The Movements is a leftist history and politics podcast. Subscribe on iTunes, Stitcher and Google Play.
