Reply To: How did this course shape or change your perceptions of the modern Near East as a whole?

After this course, I learned that the Middle East is closer than we think it is.

I have not heard Israel or anyone use the term existential threat about Iran’s nuclear weapons threat, but Iran’s nuclear weapons is a threat to Israel’s existence because Iran wants to wipe Israel off of the map. I realize that World War impacted the boundaries of all of the countries in the Near East.
