The Arab-Israeli Conflict: Cutting Through the Myths & Misinformation
4 Sessions - Fridays from 8:15 AM - 9:45 AM
April 23, 30, May 7, 14
The Arab-Israeli conflict has for more than six decades been given an enormous amount of attention by the world and attracts a disproportionate amount of coverage in the media. Much of the dialog is driven by a lack of understanding of basic issues and misleading terminology. The course will review the history, missed opportunities and commonly held myths, including false information propagated by figures as prominent as a former president of the United States. We will examine the current situation and discuss remedies which might eventually lead to a resolution of the conflict.
It's quite possible the schedule will wind up having little in common with the plan shown.April 23: Review of the History of the Arab-Israeli Conflict
