This session is an update to a similar session last offered in 2015. When Gaza orchestrated its Great March of Return in 2018 we were reminded that 70 years after its inception the State of Israel still does not have peace with its neighbours, and the Palestinians still do not have an independent country, even though there have been strenuous efforts in recent years to find solutions to this vexing problem. In this lecture we will take a detailed look at the history of this struggle from its inception in the nineteenth century to the creation of the State of Israel in 1948, to the wars that followed, to the controversial building of Jewish settlements on the West Bank and to the successes and failures of numerous peace talks over the years that have so far failed to solve the conflict.
