This Day in History takes us back to 1947, for part two of an earlier segment on the Balfour declaration 30 years earlier. November the 30th, 1947 saw the start of a civil war in the British Mandate of Palestine between Muslims and Jews, which eventually spun out to open conflict with the newly-formed state of Israel and several of its neighbours.

This was followed by several more wars between Israel and various coalitions of its Arab neighbours, which culminated in the 1973 "Yom Kippur" War.
