The Israeli-Palestinian conflict is one of the world’s most enduring political and human tragedies. It continues to flare up and capture media attention all over the world. To provide a deeper understanding of the historical background and political realities of this conflict, this eight-week course examines the history of Arab-Jewish relations (and, later, Palestinian-Israeli tensions) from the late 19th century to the present. Among topics covered: including the inception of Zionism, the movement of populations into and between areas of the Middle East, the rise of Palestinian nationalism, the establishment of the State of Israel, the 1948 war, the Palestinian refugee crisis, the Six-Day War, the Yom Kippur War, the first Intifada, the Oslo Accords, the second Intifada, and the current situation, etc. The aim is to enable students to have a better understanding of the causes of the conflict and why it has been difficult to resolve.

Carol Zink is a retired high school history teacher who taught Modern World and AP European History. She currently teaches online for the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at the University of Hawaii, and taught a Russian History course for LINEC in the fall of 2021.
