Number of participants:
Number of leaders:
Lyrics for "Zombie" by the Cranberries, "Only God can Judge me" by Tupac, "The General" by Dispatch and "Jerusalem" by Steve Earle. These are available over on the internet. A roll of tape.
The lyrics work better if they are only on paper, if you provide the songs in audio they can lose focus. The song Jerusalem seems simple for this peula, but it is worthwhile to help bring focus on Israel to the discussion at the beginning.
Do not be afraid to let the discussion expand and go for a long time. Do not be afraid to let the participants reveal their different ideas about zionist history, and more importantly do not stifle their views of Zionism. There are many different ideas and definitions of zionism, let these come out. Seeing what people think about zionism is one of the most effective ways for people to better define their own views about zionism and/or their movements.
