The Jewish Story Season 5

Episode 4: Zionism is Racism

If Israel is meant to be a light to the nations, then how they see us offers illuminating insights. In this episode, we meet the Non-Aligned Movement, Israel’s relationship with Africa, President Mobutu of Zaire, Ugandan leader Idi Amin, US ambassador to the UN Daniel Patrick Moynihan, and Israeli delegate to the UN Hadassa Ben-Itto. All of them want to know whether the national liberation movement of the Jewish people is racist and akin to apartheid, and what it means for oppressed peoples of the world.
