Wacky Research #1

1. Marie Curie

more because they seemed interesting.

Current Events Activity:
1. What methods does Abu Sarah use that allow him to talk to people on both sides of the issue?
Abu Sarah acts very calm and tries to appeal to the problem at hand. He doesn't get to be at the point where
he just agrees with everyone and takes sides. He makes sure each side gets equal amounts of his respect.
2. Describe the conflict between the Israelis and the Palestinians as described in the video.
The Palestinians are attacking the Israelis because they believe that the Israelis are settled on land that belongs
to the Palestinians and as a result to this, the Israelis have to live in fear every day.
3. What are you learning today?
I am learning about the growing tension between the Palestinians and the Israelis and their feud over land from
a reporter named Abu Sarah.
4. Why is it important?
It's important because we need to understand why this is happening and what is an effect of it. We could also
understand it and try to discuss and figure out way way to make the tiniest difference.
