My Land: Seeing Both Sides of the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict

Reflect: After the sacking of Jerusalem in the year 70 by the Romans in the wake of the Jewish Revolt, the Jewish people were scattered in what has been referred to in the historiography as “the Diaspora.” After reading Herzl’s “A Solution of the Jewish Question,” and drawing upon the readings from previous weeks, postulate on the role of the Diaspora with regard to the development of Zionism. 

Write: After reviewing the required sources and watching the video, please answer the following:

  • How did Jewish settlers interact with the local Arab population and how did this impact them both?

  • In what ways did the British fail to live up to the promises made in the Balfour Declaration? For Jews?

    For Arabs?

  • What factors led to the formal declaration of the State of Israel?

    Your initial post should be at least 250-300 words in length. Support your claims with examples from required material(s) and/or other scholarly resources, and properly cite any references.
