I just stumbled across this excellent 10-minute clip which gives essential background to the Arab-Israeli conflict. It is necessarily brief, for those who want to explore further there is an excellent compilation of resources here. The video makes brief mention that the Palestinian wartime leader, Haj Amin-Al Husseini, collaborated with Hitler in perpetrating the Holocaust. This important detail, which is dealt with exhaustively here is slowly being edited out of history, not least by various Christian anti-Zionist writers who claim that the Palestinians have unjustly been made to pay for Hitler's crimes, or that Israel has exploited the Holocaust.
