Exploration of the origins and development of the struggle for land between Jews and Palestinians, and how that struggle spread throughout the Arab Middle East. We will begin by exploring the growth of Zionism among Russian and European Jews in the nineteenth century as well as the beginnings of nationalism among Arabs in Palestine under the Ottoman Empire. From there we will continue with issues of statehood, nationalism, colonialism and the continuation of the conflict to today.
