1.) CNN: In 2010, Israel began to ease its closure, though it still maintains strict controls on the entrance of construction materials, as an almost complete ban on exports, which severely constrains economic development in the territory. 2.)In addition to limiting the transfer of goods, the closure policy also severely limits the movement of Palestinians themselves between the two Palestinian territories. 3.) Hamas political leader Khaled Meshaal called for reconciliation among Palestinian factions but offered a singular vision that does not recognize Israel and remains committed to armed struggle.

5.) Investigation (2+ Direct Quotes per Citation = 8+ Direct Quotes)

4.) Israel, the United States and other Western countries label Hamas a terrorist organization. 5.)

6.) Analysis (5-8 sentences Follow PEEER Overview model) Write a PEEER paragraph that answers the Inquiry Question
What is the current state of affairs in Israel?

For your Evidence statement use one of your Direct Quotes Color-code your paragraph -Israel is going through challenges because of the Arabs. This is really serious for Israel because Arabs are surrounding Israel on all borders and trying to make it an all-Arab country. For example on CNN, it explained that Hamas political leader Khaled Meshaal called for reconciliation among Palestinian factions but offered a singular vision that does not recognize Israel and remains committed to armed struggle.(2012) In the same way I wonder how Israel will be able to make sure that the Arabs dont make Israel an all Arab country, this is why they are all worried and struggling. Because of these Arabs Israel is going through challenges.
