Middle East Primer

Herewith, I provide a link to one of the most excellent
of the Middle East crisis and history that I have yet seen. I was in Israel five years ago, back when it
was still kinda safe to travel there, and I wish that I had
this presentation to listen to and watch before I
went. It is done by the good folks at NPR, who have picked up their multimedia content lately, perhaps with the $100
million windfall they got from Mrs. Kroc. Anyway, you can never go wrong with NPR, and this is as fine a historical and
cultural presentation of the Mid East crisis available.
