ISRAEL AND PALESTINE: Week 1

Which group had the stronger claim to the land between the Mediterranean and the Jordan?

Both Jews and Arabs lay historical claims to this land. This programme explains the history of the land across three millennia from the land of Canaan in the late Bronze Age, through conquest by the Romans, Arabs, Ottomans, and British, up to the present day.

ISRAEL AND PALESTINE: Week 2

Should the British Government be praised or blamed for the Balfour Declaration?

In 1917, Lord Balfour in the British government wrote to Lord Rothschild, the leader of British Jews, promising to support the establishment of a national home for Jews in Palestine. Was this a great humanitarian gesture which offered a place of safety for a long-persecuted minority? Or was this an act of imperial arrogance which […]

Should the British Government be blamed for its handling of the Mandate in Palestine?

At the end of the First World War, when the Ottoman empire collapsed in 1918, the League of Nations awarded authority (Mandate) over the area to Britain. Should the British government be praised for its efforts to maintain peace between two irreconcilable groups who refused to compromise? Or should it be blamed for always putting […]

ISRAEL AND PALESTINE: Week 1

Did the national identity of people living in Scotland after 1707 become more British?

In 1707, the Scottish parliament, in passing the Union with England Act, voted to abolish itself. But three hundred years later, the majority of Scottish MPs who sit in the British parliament are demanding an end to the Union with England and the revival of Scotland as an independent nation. Why after three centuries are […]

ISRAEL AND PALESTINE: Week 2

Did people in Scotland after 1707 benefit from the Union with England?

The current debate about Scottish independence draws heavily on competing narratives of how well Scotland fared in the Union. Was the Union a brilliant merger which allowed Scotland to take an outsized share of the wealth and power created by the British Empire? Or was it a hostile takeover which allowed England to subjugate the […]

Does the UKā€™s decision to leave the EU (Brexit) justify a second referendum?

On 31st January 2020, Britain left the European Union. Yet, 62% of the Scottish people had voted in June 2016 that Britain should remain. Does this divergence justify Scottish demands for independence, following in the footsteps of the USA in 1776, Ireland in 1919, or India in 1948? Or does the earlier referendum on independence […]

Is it fair to blame Dundas for delaying the abolition of the slave trade?

Dundas (Lord Melville) was a Scottish politician who wielded great power in both Scotland and England in the 1780s and 90s and was honoured with monuments and place names. But should we now change how heā€™s commemorated given the role he played in the defeat of the 1792 Bill to Abolish the Slave Trade?

Was Israel forced to begin the Six-Day War to protect itself from Arab aggression?

In 1967 Israel launched a surprise attack on Syria, Egypt and Jordan and won a comprehensive victory. Was Israel forced to do this because it was threatened by imminent invasion from its more numerous Arab neighbours? Or was Israelā€™s attack an aggressive move to seize more Arab land for itself?

Should Jewish armed forces be blamed for the forced dispossession of half the Arab population from their homes in Palestine in 1948?

The withdrawal of Britain in 1947 led to war between Arabs and Jews in Palestine, at the end of which over half the Arab population had left their homes, never to return. Should we blame Jewish armed forces for the forced dispossession of Palestinians? Or should we blame Arab leadership for starting the war and […]

Were the Israelis justified in the use of force in the First Intifada?

The uprising at the end of 1987 in Gaza and the West Bank, territories occupied by Israel after the Six-Day War, took both Palestinian and Israeli leadership by surprise. Were the Israelis justified in using necessary and proportionate measures to restore order, or was their use of force, which included beatings and shootings, to repress […]

Who is to blame for the failure of the peace process?

Israeli prime minister Yitzhak Rabin and Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat took first steps towards a permanent and comprehensive peace based on a Two State solution by signing the Oslo Accords in the mid 1990s. However, a quarter of a century later peace remains as elusive as ever. Is this the Palestiniansā€™ fault for having unrealistic […]

Treffen de Joodse gewapende groeperingen schuld aan het vluchtelingenprobleem dat ontstond in 1948 in Palestina?

Toen de Britten het mandaatgebied Palestina verlieten in 1947 braken er gewapende conflicten uit tussen de plaatselijke Arabische en Joodse bevolking. Tegen het einde van deze oorlog was meer dan de helft van de Arabische bevolking hun huizen ontvlucht, om nooit meer terug te keren. Zijn de Joodse gewapende krachten verantwoordelijk voor het ontstaan van […]
