The news from the Middle East crisis is picking up more speed as the situation there shows no signs of peace. We here at The Inquisitr reported on the situation, such as the explanation with Iraq, Syria, and ISIS in about five minutes. We even reported celebrity views about the Middle East, in which Gal Gadot, the actress who will play Wonder Woman in the upcoming Batman vs. Superman, spoke in favor of her home country. We even reported when Finnish news actually reported live that the Hamas was actually shooting missiles from hospital grounds.
Now, a recent video on YouTube has been called “the most important video about Israel ever made,” and it is getting a lot of attention on the internet. As a matter of fact, it has gone viral!
According to Dennis Prager on his YouTube channel, Prager Institute, via The Blaze, the video features the nationally syndicated radio talk show host, known for his strong conservative views. He tries to explain the situation in the Middle East between Israel and Palestine in under six minutes. As a matter of fact, he even opens up with a statement that the situation at the Middle East is simple by saying:
“The Middle East conflict is framed as one of the most complex problems in the world. But, in reality, it’s very simple.”
Prager explains that the situation is easy to understand, but the solution is very hard to attain. Why? Because it comes down to the fact that one side wants the other side dead. This all comes down to most Palestinians and Arabs not recognizing the right of the Jewish state of Israel to exist.
To support his thesis, Prager briefly overviews several decades of history since Israel became recognized after World War II. This includes Israel’s desire for peace with its neighbors. Such things they done was give up land to certain Muslim countries, such as Egypt.
Haaretz however had a counter-argument in their article, in which they report that one five-minute video does not explain the overall Arab-Israeli conflict simply and correctly. They claim the video is unsupported by evidence. However, they failed to include evidence to either back up or deny the video. Instead, they defaulted to saying that it is easy to say that acts of protest stem from hatred and it is much harder to sit and listen to the fears of the other and to examine one’s own actions to see how they shape those predictions.
Now we would like to know what you all think about the video? Do you think the video is a good, yet simple, explanation of what is going on in the Middle East, especially with Israel? Or is it one-sided and lacks the necessary evidence for Prager’s claims? Let us know in the comments below.
