Is War Inevitable? Lessons From History w/ Scott Horton

by | Nov 24, 2023

The chronic Middle East crisis goes hack–as do many crises–to World War I. The British, in return for mobilizing the Arab peoples against their oppressors of imperial Turkey, promised the Arabs their independence when the war was over. But, at the same time, the British government, with characteristic double-dealing, was promising Arab Palestine as a “National Home” for organized Zionism. These promises were not on the same moral plane: for in the former case, the Arabs were being promised their own land freed from Turkish domination; and in the latter, world Zionism was being promised a land most emphatically not its own.

– Murray N. Rothbard, War Guilt and the Middle East
