The collections on Israel and Palestine address aspects of a combined and contentious history as well as the separate histories of Israelis and Palestinians. Some pertain to Zionist activities during the British mandate in Palestine; others, to the creation of Israel, the 1967 Arab-Israeli War, and the 1967 Israeli attack on the USS Liberty. The status of Palestinians under Israeli rule and the general Israel/Palestine conflict are also covered.
