Arab-Israeli Conflict Class

April 17, 2007

I just noticed that my class “Arab-Israeli Conflict” has been offered at my university ever since 1972. How crazy. I had assumed that it was a newer course offering. The current increase in interest and conflict really only started (at least for my generation) back at the turn of the millennium.
But again I have noticed that the course went from alternate year offerings to being offered every year after 2002. So there has definitely been an increase.

And really… the vicious cycle of political strife, conflict, peace conferences, and then more political strife has been non-stop. Why have they still not learned that no man, or president, or prime minister, or party will ever bring the solution? But I guess they will keep on trying. As I read the history, they just don’t seem to get it so it keeps going and going…
And the day they do proclaim ‘peace, peace!’, it will only be a lie just like all the former times…

“And the effect of righteousness will be peace, and the result of righteousness, quietness and security forever. ” Isaiah  32:17

“Steadfast love and faithfulness meet; righteousness and peace kiss each other.” Psalm 85:10
