    Really?!?!? Is this some kind of political statement by Jason Jewell?

    At 1:52 in the lecture on Mesopotamia he says that the fertile crescent begins in the area we call “Palestine” by the Mediterranean sea.

    Huh? How about the area we call Israel?!?!?

    I was not expecting extreme left-wing political propaganda in this lecture series.

    Hi, Dan. I’ve explained my usage of the term “Palestine” in another thread on this message board. It is a generic geographical term that Western historians have used since well before the modern state of Israel was established in 1948. It is not intended to advance any political position. Please do not interpret it as such.
