Reply To: What were some of your primary takeaways after reading Matti Friedman’s “There Is No ‘Israeli-Palestinian Conflict’”?

Sarah Merly

Hi Sandra! These are awesome takeaways! I’m so thankful for your first one about the many sides of the conflict. Before taking this course and reading the article, I thought that “Palestinian” described the ancestral roots of all of Israel’s enemies and thought it was an accurate catch-all term for everyone in the Near East in opposition to Israel. This course has truly opened my eyes to just how distinctive and diverse each of Israel’s enemies really is.
