Israel’s existence is apparently too controversial for the translators associated with the company ProTranslating. When Prager University reached out to the company to translate its video devoted to the Middle East conflict and Israel’s existence, the order was initially ready to go. The company accepted the order to translate the video into French, Hebrew, Spanish, Portuguese, German, Arabic, Chinese, and Russian. The text of the video follows:
The Middle East conflict is framed as one of the most complex problems in the world. But, in reality, it's very simple. Israelis want to live in peace and are willing to accept a neighboring Palestinians state. And most Palestinians do not want Israel to exist. As Dennis Prager explains, this is really all you need to know. In 5 minutes, understand how Israel was founded, and how, since that auspicious day in 1948, its neighbors have tried to destroy it, again and again.

Although it seems as if there is no solution in sight to the Israeli/Palestinian conflict, the problem itself is quite easy to explain. Israel wants to live in peace with its neighbors. The Palestinians don't want Israel to exist. Dennis Prager explains the roots of the world's most well-known conflict.

Prager U administrators soon received the following notice from ProTranslating: “We have been unable to find people willing to translate this script due to its controversial nature and it seems we will no longer be able to deliver this project to you. I apologize for the delay in letting you know but we’ve been trying to get translators to accept the job and simply have had no luck.”
The English version of the video is approaching 570,000 views on YouTube and has been hailed as a remarkable video, with some even asking if it is the "most important important Israel film ever made."
