Throughout history, the Middle East has been a seat of conflict. I think that few Jewish People have a clear understanding of the complex issues involved and therefore are ill prepared to formulate an opinion on the subject. Therefore, this course should be a welcome addition to any study of the Israel/Palestine conflict. The course materials consist of 5 units of audio presentations of historical, political, rabbinic and Land for Peace perspectives, including that of the Lubavitcher Rebbe who spoke out so vociferously and clearly about the Integrity of the Land of Israel. I have included a link to a text by author and historian Richard Bass who has written an excellent thought inspiring work on the history of Israel which is presented in a lucid, understandable style. In addition, he has produced a number of videos, and I have embedded the links in the resource section.
