Israel Seminar

Israel Seminar - A Brief History of Conflict By Robert Gorelik

The current conflict in the Middle-East between Israelis and Palestinians seems as old as time itself—but is it? Do both “sides” have equally ancient and legitimate claims to “the Land.” Are the Palestinians really descendants of the Biblical Philistines, Israel’s historic “arch-rival”?

The “Israel” Seminar traces the roots of the Conflict from the time of the Roman occupation of the Land, through the Byzantine, Arab, Crusader, Mameluke and Ottoman Empires, through World-War I and II to the present day.

It deals with the Balfour Declaration, the British Mandate, the Sykes-Picot Agreement, various Partition Plans and Jewish and Arab nationalism.

The Seminar also deals with Israel’s War of Independence (1948), the Sinai Campaign (1956), the establishment of the PLO (1964), the Six-Day War (1967), the Yom Kippur War (1973) and the modern Intifada (1987).

It includes an extensive section on Israel’s “Land-Grant,” the Palestinian National Charter, myths and facts relating to the modern conflict and contains nineteen maps.
