The Red Cell Intelligence Group's Crash Course to Understanding the Arab-Israeli conflict Arab provides participants with the context and background to fully understand the complexity of the issue by promoting critical thinking. Our unique interactive approach ensures that participants will leave with a solid understanding of all perspectives relating to the conflict.
The Arab-Israeli conflict spans roughly one century of political tensions and open hostilities. The establishment of the State of Israel in 1948 by the international Zionist movement took place in territory regarded by the Jewish people as their historic and biblical homeland. The Pan-Arab and Pan-Islamic movements consider this territory to belong to the Palestinians.
This highly interactive course was designed by foreign policy experts that have spent significant time living in both Israel and the Arab/Islamic world. Both the Palestinian/Muslim narrative, as well as the Israeli/Jewish perspectives will be explored in detail. This course is a must for military personal deploying to Iraq, government employees involved in peace negotiations, financial institutions doing business in the Middle East and/or emerging college leaders.
