  • Groups: Summative Assessment: We are going to do a Role Play Activity to introduce us to the Arab-Israeli or Palestinian-Israeli Conflict.

  • When Israel was established in 1948, over two thirds of the indigenous Palestinian population fled or were expelled. These people and their descendants are refugees and have not been allowed to return home. Their right to return home, known as the Right of Return is enshrined in international law. This has become the basis for many of the wars between Israel and other Middle Eastern nations and for the acts of terrorism committed by the PLO, Hezebollah, and Hamas. And the United Nations and the Western powers have been caught in the middle of these struggles. This issue was thought to be resolved by the Camp David and Oslo Peace Accords, but it continues to drive the conflict.
