St. Clair will examine the history of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict up to the present day. Although both parties have long histories that complicate matters, many of the reasons for the current conflict began in the 19th century. The internal divisions within the Israeli and Palestinian communities that make a resolution more difficult today will also be examined, as well as how those divisions play into the politics of the region. The talk will conclude with a look at where the peace process has stalled and where it may eventually lead.
