This video is too modernly partisan and politically motivated to give people good impression about 2500 years ago events.

"Romans were greedy". Oh, Really? And Carthagenians built their empire being generous?

"Romans made it look like Carthage did not contribute to European civilisation."
Well, how could it contribute if it was thoroughly destroyed by Romans before it had any chance to do it? It makes statement that European civilization has roots in Greece and Rome perfectly accurate.

But European civilization has 3 more foundations as well. Two of them are Celtic and Germanic and have no relevance to Carthage. But the third one is almost as important as Roman one. And it might be worth mentioning in the story about Phoenician Semitic empire of Carthage. But author was hell bent to avoid this topic.

When authors showed the map of Mediterranean ti poibt to the origin of Carthage, the eastern shores of Mediterranean are incorrectky marked "Lebanon". This lable is wrong for modern times, because we have Syria, Lebanon and Israel there. And this label is wrong for Phoenician times, because there would be either Canaan, or Israel of Judea there as well.

Jews also are the close genetic relatives of Phoenicians and therefore of Carthage.

And unlike Carthage, Jews contributed a lot to European civilization through Christianity.

Authors might say that Jews did not play any role in Punic war or in founding of Carthage. True. But Greece and Egypt did not play role too there too. Yet authors put Grece and Egypt on their map.

Authors look too antisemitic to me to even present correct nap, not to mention to tell the true story.
