The Peacemaker in Palestine
37 minutes

The Peacemaker in Palestine takes a rare behind the scenes look at the historic Rhodes Armistice talks that brought an end to the Arab-Israeli war of 1948. Ralph Bunche's successful mediation of peace accords between the fledgling state of Israel and four neighboring Arab nations- Egypt, Syria, Lebanon, and Jordan - wins him the 1950 Nobel Peace Prize and catapults him into worldwide celebrity. It is the only time in the long history of the Middle East conflict that all four Arab states sign a peace treaty with Israel.
