What intrigued you about this topic and what would you like to get out of this discussion? 2. Which of the videos/articles was the most interesting to you and why? 3. What kind of people are the people who commit violent acts of terrorism? Why do they do the things that they do? 4. Do you think the world is becoming more violent than in the past, or is it about the same as before? Why do you think so? 5. How has not solving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict for so many years contributed to the atrocious acts that began over the weekend and the many other examples of violence leading up to these events? 6. What do you think will happen in the days and weeks to come? How do you feel thinking about and seeing this level of violence? 7. In response to the attacks by Hamas, Israel has sent rockets into Gaza killing hundreds of civilians with many more expected to die. Many other conflicts in world history have also gone unresolved for decades. Why do you think this is? Why has the Israeli-Palestinian conflict not been resolved in all of these decades? What do you think needs to happen? 8. What do you think the international community should do to help reduce escalating tensions and avoid growing catastrophe in the region?
Unfortunately, I can't attend. I will watch these videos. Thanks for sharing great information on this important topic, Francisco!
Me neither, I mean, I won’t be able to attend the meeting, although I would love to. Judy having tight schedule at the moment. Sorry about that
