Offered twice a year in fall and spring
Next session begins Fall, 2018
Are you upset and angry with the current political situation? Deeply disturbed that Netanyahu has a best friend in the White House? Seeing uncomfortable parallels between settlement expansion in the West Bank and the dispossession of native peoples here at home?
Do you want to become a more effective advocate for justice, equality and peace in Israel/Palestine, but feel you lack knowledge on the subject? To discuss in a supportive setting the relationship between Trump's "America (i.e. white Christians) First" rhetoric and and the ethnic nationalism of Israel / Zionism? This course is designed to give what you need. It is not intended for those who already have an extensive background on the issue.
