Excellent Course. Professor Susser does a thorough, careful job of bring the Middle East up to date to 2013 or so. Would love to see an additional week added dealing with developments up to today.

A FASCINATING COURSE WHICH WAS MOST ENGAGING THROUGHOUT. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS COURSE. IT REALLY HELPS TO PUT INTO CONTEXT THE CONFLICT IN THE MIDDLE EAST THAT IS STILL VERY MUCH ONGOING.

it was nice seeing things from the other side's perspective (the way Israelis see it) as opposed to being bombarded by the same ideas all arabs (governments and individuals) promote...a necessary step if people really want to form an objective opinion about this long lasting conflict, even more important for those directly concerned if a peaceful solution is sought (dreamy but who knows) just wish of the MENA region universities (other than israeli universities) had the decency to make such an objective course available...would help a lot

This course is wonderful, and does not seem biased. My one complaint is that for so so much information, there are only two quizzes. I would prefer to have a test at the end of each weekly lesson, especially since the quizzes are so short. The material and videos themselves are wonderful! I learned a lot :)

Very well made course, although I wish to see more on other countries, because Egipt, Israel and Palestine were making most of lectures.
