Introduction: A-Z of the Holy Land: from Arab to Zion
Come on a journey from biblical times to the modern day...
This series of podcasts will not be tribal. At least, it will not pander to the tribal conflicts that rage around Israel and Palestine. But it will help the listener understand the tensions between global and national identity. Its loyalties will be global. Its instincts, hopeful.
Come on a journey from biblical times to the modern day, exploring the connection between religion, history and politics and reflect on one of the most intractable conflicts in the last 100 years. It will be sort of 'Long View' of the factors which have led to the current regional instability as well as an insight into the forthcoming re-running of elections in Israel.
The challenge for you – the listener – is to avoid assumptions about even those who appear to share your own beliefs in the following 26 episodes as complex, and potentially, as contentious as this A-Z of the Holy Land.
The new podcast series with Dr Ed Kessler MBE - A-Z of the Holy Land: from Arab and Zion - commences on Tuesday 12 January 2021
