At BibleInteract, we were completely taken by surprise to learn that many people, from the age of 50 and younger, including American Jews, do not know the dramatic story of how Israel became a legally recognized state. That understanding is essential for an accurate view of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict today. Therefore, this series of engaging conversations between Anne Davis and her guest, Laura Green, who is an active Jewish advocate for the state of Israel, addresses this untold story of Israel’s return to the land that God has promised to them. The sessions are organized historically, so you can follow the story of Israel’s return from Jewish immigration under the Ottoman Empire, to the United Nations vote to give Israel its own state, and finally to Israel’s struggle to defend its country and its people.
Session 1: The Vision of a Jewish Homeland
In this session, Anne Davis and Laura Green, an advocate for Israel and a member of AIPAC (American-Israel Political Affairs Committee), discuss the historical background of how Israel became a state in 1949.
