The Middle East: Is Peace Possible?
This course will offer an in depth look at the complex and difficult area of the world known as the Middle East. Emphasis will be placed on the three critical levels of conflict that need to be resolved in order for there to be a genuine, lasting peace. They are 1) the super power conflict in the Middle East, 2) the conflict between Israel and the Arab nations which surround her and 3) the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians. The evolution and internal conflicts in the Zionist movement and the Palestinian national movement will be discussed as it evolved through the decades. The broader problems of the region including Iraq and Iran will be analyzed. The rise and growing influence of radical Islam will be discussed in the context of the region and the world. We will try to deal with the question of the possibility of genuine peace in the Middle East. Is it possible or is it a mirage?
