The state of Israel has been engaged with Islamic terrorists since its inception and recognition as a country.  However, even prior to the establishment of Israel, Jewish and Arab fighters engaged in acts of violence in British-occupied Palestine.  For your initial post, address the following:

  1. Prior to Israeli independence, against whom did Jewish fighters commit acts of violence?  Why?
  2. In your opinion, were Jewish actions during this period acts of terrorism or of self-defense?  Support your answer with your definition of terrorism.
  3. Are Israeli military actions against peoples in the West Bank, Gaza Strip, and surrounding Arab countries simply state-sponsored terrorism?  Why or why not?


Your initial post should be at least 250 words in length. Support your claims with examples from the required material(s) and/or other scholarly resources, and properly cite any references. Review several of your classmates’ posts and provide substantive responses by Day 7 to at least two of your peers whose opinions differ from yours.
