The United States in the Middle East  

Our country is exhausted from major wars in the Middle East but there are still daily reports of possible new wars, crises, and security threats. How did we get to this point? Based on first-hand experiences of the facilitator as well as relevant readings and sources, this course will examine the roots of U.S. involvement in the Middle East, focusing on the Israel-Palestine issue and how it affects the region today. It is strongly recommended that interested OLLI members see the film Lawrence of Arabia preceding this course.
