Editor’s Overview

This quiz is here to see what YOU know about the Middle East, about Israel — we do not keep anyone’s score, which is why you have it on your sheet of paper and not answering here.

Questions provide direction, correct an incorrect belief, provide an opportunity to embrace conviction or guilt.

It is your choice whether to run to from conviction and towards guilt – or towards conviction and away from guilt.

ALL of us have that choice – and feeling you are convicted you are right is just that: a feeling, nothing else.

We present the questions here for your own assessment of your true knowledge of these topics.
