Today we started by trying to build a map of the region from memory - expect a quiz soon. Next, we worked through the second half of the PPT on the Mid east (thank we started last semester). We outlined the four main Arab-Israeli conflicts (wars) and spoke generally about the kind of security issues that are a part of everyday life in this region. For homework, I asked that you compete Falk Ex #6 The Creation of Israel.
Tomorrow I will give you all a break since your brains are mush and all many of you are thinking about Saturday's prom: we'll watch the Six-Day War doc and I promise not to give any homework!
