Question 1

Not yet graded / 5 pts

(TCO 9) As the simulation shows, Muhammed’s father was killed by the Israelis in their war of independence, as they attempted to defend their state and enforce the boundaries established by the UN. Although this was an international decree, all Muhammed witnessed was his father’s death and the loss of his family home as the land of his forefathers was taken to make room for what many Palestinians viewed as the “occupiers.” If you were him, how would you react? For example, would you blame the Israelis for hurting your father and taking your land, and then pass on this hatred to your children so they would know never to trust the Israelis? Would you seek revenge for your family and people? Or is there a chance that you would accept the new conditions of the UN resolution because it was in the best interest of the people of the world? What about simply seeking strength in your religion and guiding your children away from the hatreds of the past in an effort to protect them? Please put some thought into your answer and provide at least 4–5 sentences as you explain it.

Question 2

5 / 5 pts

(TCO 9) Within the Israeli home, Ben knows from the horrors faced by his parents what can happen when there is not a state of Israel in the world. He thus supports his state and will do anything to defend its claim to this region. How does this differ from Muhammed’s stance?

It doesn’t differ; they both suffered death and loss, and they both simply want to protect their families.

Ben has more of a claim to hardship because his parents suffered in the Holocaust.

Muhammed has been wronged the most because he lost his land and his father to the cause.

Question 6

(TCO 9) Given what you have read and what you know about the conflicts between Israel and Palestine, what is the likelihood that the children will continue the cycle of violence in this land if nothing radically changes?

Because the Palestinian children fight the government and the Israeli children back the military that puts down these rebellions, the conflict is likely to continue.

The death of some will drive the call for more death, as seen in Miriam’s loss of her fiancée and Mariam’s loss of her parents.

Eventually, peace will be found, because the children will see the errors of their ways.
