INAF 394 - Israel, Hamas, & Hezbollah
Since the 1980s, the violence of the Arab-Israeli conflict has not been between Israel and the surrounding Arab states, but rather between Israel and a host of non-state militant groups. Hamas and Hezbollah are the two most prominent of these groups and now figure prominently in the political and security dimensions of the Arab-Israeli conflict. This seminar will examine Hamas and Hezbollah as organizations; Israel's political and security strategies in dealing with "asymmetric" conflict; the interactions between Israel, Hamas and Hezbollah; and place those interactions in the broader context of the Arab-Israeli conflict and the geopolitics of the Middle East. Prior knowledge of the Arab-Israeli conflict will be helpful but is not required as the first weeks will be spent reviewing its current and historical dimensions. Class exercises will include debate, simulated negotiations, and guest speakers.
