I think this is a great perspective and I am glad this course filled some gaps for you. I think sometimes as history “nerds”, people like me often wonder what it was like to live in a time in which all of these conflicts were happening. What was the overall public opinion toward Israel like back then? How were the conflicts taught? Did the school systems seem impartial or take a side? These are all thoughts that are off the top of my head. For myself, I believe the Six-Day War, the War for Independence, and others were covered in maybe a paragraph of a chapter. I wish our systems were more in depth.
