The Arab-Israeli Conflict Series

by  ISRAED-(Formerly JETS-Jerusalem EdTech)

Program image

At the signing of the Oslo Accords in 1993, President Clinton
remarked.


"Today we bear witness to an extraordinary act in one of
history's defining dramas, a drama that began in the time of our ancestors when
the word went forth from a sliver of land between tide fiver Jordan and the
Mediterranean Sea. That hallowed peace of earth, that land of light and
revelation, is the home to the memories and dreams of Jews, Muslims and
Christians throughout the world..

As we all know, devotion to that land has also been the
source of conflict and bloodshed for too long. Throughout this century,
bitterness between the Palestinian and Jewish people has robbed the entire
region of its resources, its potential, and too many of its sons and daughters.
The land has been so drenched in warfare and hatred, the conflicting claims of
history etched so deeply in the souls of the combatants there, that many
believed the past would always have the upper hand."

In our 1-4 part series, we will trace the Israeli-Arab
conflict from its Biblical roots through the Muslim conquests in the Early
Middle Ages. We will then discover how the modern day return of the Jewish
people to their ancient homeland, culminating with the establishment of the
State of Israel in 1948, impacted on the region and spawned a variety of the
Arab reactions. Our studies will take a balanced look at the bloodshed which
has unfortunately plagued the region, and the numerous attempts to forge a
lasting peace between Israel and her neighbors. We will then examine how the
ever-changing political landscape of the contemporary Middle East provides new
opportunities and challenges for achieving peace.
