The decade’s long conflict between Israel and Palestine has reignited, resulting in the worst violence in the region in years. Tensions between the two countries date back to the creation of the Jewish state of Israel in 1948. Villanova faculty experts are available to discuss the history of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict; the flashpoints on either side that continue to fuel the clash; its economic and political impact; and what the United States should be doing to help improve the situation.
