For thousands of years, up to the 20th century, the land of Palestine was a homeland for Christians, Jews, and Muslims. In the 20th century, the British got involved in the Middle East in several ways, culminating in the attempt to make Palestine a “Homeland” for European Jews to go to. Based on the e-Activity and Roskin Chapter 8 for this week:
•Hypothesize on what reasons exist for feeling hopeful about the future of the conflict. If there is no reason to feel hopeful, explain why.
•Speculate on the probable future of the dispute based on your readings in Roskin and your familiarity with current events.
