Title: Chapter 28, Sections 2,3.


1
Chapter 28, Sections 2,3.
  • The Arab-Israeli Conflict
  • And
  • Literature and the Arts

2
In 1947 the UN decided to partition Palestine
into Arab and Jewish states.
  • Zionists agreed, but Arabs resisted, as they
    considered it a challenge to their right of
    self-determination.

3
Since 1948, there have been three more
Arab-Israeli Wars. Israel has occupied lands
originally set aside by the UN for Palestinians.
4
In 1964, Palestinian leaders formed the Palestine
Liberation Organization (PLO). They wanted to
destroy Israel and reclaim Palestine.
5
IN 1993, Israel and the PLO agreed to recognize
each other and have talks. The PLO promised to
stop its attacks. Israel withdrew forces from
parts of the occupied territories.
The Oslo Accords
6
Jerusalem
  • In 1980, Jerusalem was made Israels capital.
    This is a stumbling block for peace because Arabs
    outnumber Jews in East Jerusalem. It is also
    their holy city as well.

7
Famous Authors
  • Firdwasi
  • Omar Khayyam
  • Taha Husayn
  • Shmuel Yosef Agnon
  • Yahuda Amichai

8
The Thousand and One Nights
  • Princess Scheherazade entertains the king nightly
    to escape execution by telling folktales of
    Persian, Indian, Egyptian, Greek, Hebrew and
    Chinese origin.

9
Art and Islam
  • The Koran forbids the worship of idols, and many
    Muslims oppose the portrayal of human or animal
    images.

10
Muslim architectural and design style
  • Muslims designed mosques and palaces with glazed
    tiles, domes, minarets, and mosaics. Persian rugs
    feature floral designs and curling scrolls known
    as arabesques.

11
In Israel, Yakov Agam experimented with optical
painting.
12
Cheb Khaled dominates popular Arab music today.
He is the king of Rai- blending traditional
Arabian music with rock and jazz.
