The U.S. and the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict: The Second Lebanon War

When: Fall 2006
This course examined each of the 34 days of the War in Lebanon, trying to compare and contrast how different media outlets in Israel, Iran, Egypt, Jordan and the Palestinian Authority portrayed the origins, evolution and conclusion of the Second Lebanon War. Students were required to focus on one media outlet from the side with which they least identified and for which they had the least sympathy.
