JCIV 297 - Israel & the Arab+Muslim World
The Societal, Political and Security Implications of Israel's Relations with the Arab and Muslim World. This course will review the Zionist Movement's and the State of Israel's relations with the Arab and Muslim World throughout four modules. The first will examine the implications of Jewish immigration from the Middle East and North Africa for the state formation process. Students will also assess Israel's approaches to Arab and Palestinian minorities. The second module will review the development of Israel's relations with Arab and Muslim majority countries in the Middle East and North Africa, from the pre-state period through the major military confrontations of 1948, 1967 and 1973. It will also survey the Camp David Accords with Egypt, as well as Israel's wars in Lebanon and their effect on Palestinians. The third module will take a closer look at the development of relations between Israel, Egypt, Jordan, Turkey, and Iran. During the last module, students will study the impact of recent political changes in the Middle East. Specifically, they will evaluate what the end of the Cold War, the Arab Spring, and the Abraham Accords have meant for both Israel's diplomatic relations in the region and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
