Dr. Pitz receiving an explanation of the security fence from IDF soldiers guarding the Gaza border


I have been teaching Middle East History for many years. Knowing the history is a great advantage for trying to make sense of the current conflicts in the region. In May, 2006 I visited both the Palestinian West Bank and the Gaza border region. Because I have friends there, this history is very personal. Please listen my story about Gaza and visit The Professor's House again soon.
