Israel's Strategic Position in the Middle East  

This four-session course will briefly touch on regional issues including: 1) water, natural resources, religion, historical origins, regional alliances, weaponry and the Suez Canal; 2) a bit of family background and a survey of the timeline of Israel's military conflicts; and in the sessions 3) and 4) examine Israel's strategic principles, relations with its neighbors, neighborhood relations in general, threats to and opportunities for peaceful coexistence, and military hardware. This course does not address, except tangentially, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. *The Instructor will share relevant information via email before each class.
