Additions To “The Best” List On The Middle East

| 1 Comment

Here are some new additions to The “Best” Resources For Learning About The Israeli-Palestinian Conflict:

The Washington Post has an out-dated special feature on the conflict. Some of their features, though, are also relevant today. The two best are an interactive on the history of the conflict, and a series of questions about Hamas answered by both an Israeli and a Palestinian. Those answers can be found on the main page of the feature.

CNN also has a map and photos about the present Gaza attacks.

The Guardian has an interactive graphic titled The Arab-Israeli Conflict: A Brief History.

The Council on Foreign Relations has an interactive Crisis Guide: The Israeli-Palestinian Conflict, but it’s probably only accessible to advanced English Language Learners.

We are living under a state of fear.” Read the full story right now at at:
