With so much going on in the Middle East right now, you likely have questions. I sure did, and this is actually a really great STARTING POINT if you want to know the basics about what is going on with the Israel-Palestine conflict.
Now this video, This Land is Mine was actually uploaded a year ago. It was made by American cartoonist and free culture activist, Nina Paley. It’s described as a “brief history of the land called Israel/Palestine/Canaan/the Levant,” and it’s hauntingly beautiful.
Then there is this Second City sketch “Israel” from the 2010 show, Something Wicked Awesome This Way Comes that may shed some light on why people don’t typically talk about this stuff. Here’s a tweet about it from last week that says it all. The video is below.
