Reply To: Which of the conflicts featured in the “100 Years of Conflict” lecture did you find to be the most interesting and why?

Hello Jordan,
Yes, I, too, found this very interesting. This defence course has shown me just how complex, nuanced, and entwined the Arab-Israeli conflict is. Having multiple actor states, as you mentioned, Lebanon and Jordan, to name two, leaves me wondering if this conflict will ever end. With many national actors and their motives under one umbrella of the PLO, how can Israel and its allies amend this situation with hostilities on all fronts? Can a ‘one size fits all’ problem be the solution, or will each country be a case-by-case scenario? How will Israel go about this, and at what expense?
