Do you love Israel, but feel you don’t have the historic, geographic, and political background to respond to criticism effectively? This session can give you the confidence – and the facts – you need to discuss Israel in an informed and reasoned manner. You will learn about key milestones in the timeline of modern Zionism, Israel’s struggles for security and peace, and the meaning of contentious terms such as “1967 borders,” “Settlements,” “Oslo Accords,” “Intifada,” “Disengagement,” and more. The session ends with an overview of Israel’s repeated attempts to resolve the conflict and leaves you comfortable with the basic history of the Arab-Israeli conflict – and better positioned to discuss the remaining barriers to peace.
