JOURNAL ENTRIES – 10TH EBG
Write: Write a journal entry for each one of the following topics. In order complete some of the entries, you
should watch (under parental supervision!) the movie Münich. The journals should be turned in on January
Mossad: Read about the Israeli intelligence agency. What kind of feats have they achieved during their existence.
Why are they legendary?
Münich Olympics Massacre: Black September: Research as much as you can about the topic. Does the need for
freedom and a country, justify acts as such? If you were a Palestinian, would you support ouch actions? In the movie
Münich, there is a representation of this event. How did it make you feel when you watched it?
Israeli Payback: The main plot of the movie Münich is "payback". Watch it entirely and look back at the actions of
the Israelis and Palestinians. Are either of them right? Are both sides wrong? What is your opinion on this issue?
Ayatollah Komeini: Read about this man. Explain his relationship with the U.S. and the Iranian revolution. How was
this man so influential in Middle Eastern politics?
Arab Spring: Research whatever you can about how this movement began, and its modern day consequences. Use
what you have read about Syria and Egypt in order to help you write a small entry, detailing the importance of the
Arab Spring to our current events on the Middle East.
