Respond to this assignment in this week’s Dialogue (Group Discussion) area in Blackboard:
Migration and Refugees
Many immigrants in the region flee persecution, and then return after they are liberated. For example, 700,000 Jews were allowed to leave the former Soviet Union and enter Israel in the 1990s. There has also been a migration of Palestinian people.
- Why do you think that Israel is such an important place for the Jews?
- What is the importance of the area to the Palestinians?
- What do you think the impact would be on you and your families if you participated in such long distance migration?
