The Arab peninsula was under control of the Ottoman Turks. During WW1 in the time period of 1914-1918 it allowed Arab tribes to fight against the Turks. The Arabs fought on the side of the Allies. Arabs hoped to be freed from Turkish control and gain independence, TE Lawrence went to speak to Arab tribes to gain their support for WWI. France and Great Britain planned on taking Arab states as colonies.
Of course, this does not mean we should ever forget the atrocities committed by Hitler. Today though, so-called ‘anti-Zionism’ is the greatest threat to the Jewish people. For example, violence against Jews increased following Trump’s courageous Jerusalem decision. Jerusalem is where our temples stood, our kings ruled, and where our people have yearned to return for two thousand years in the diaspora. Yet, despite the unbreakable bond between the holy city and Judaism, Muslim extremists and their left-wing allies across the globe resorted to bigotry and violence following the announcement.
Both nations had signed Article X of The Treaty of Versailles, the Italo-Ethiopian Treaty of Friendship and Arbitration which stated a 20 year friendship between the two, and the Kellogg Briand Pact, however, Italy still invaded without a declaration of war. The League of Nations later declared Italy the aggressor. Later that year, The Hoare-Laval Plan was proposed secretly by the United Kingdom and France which would have ended the war but allowed Italy to controllarge sections of Ethiopia. Mussolini agreed to this plan, but it caused problems in parts of Europe when it was leaked to the media; Hoare and Laval were accused of favoring the Abyssinians and they both resigned from the plan. The Invasion of Abyssinia was one incident that clearly indicated the start or even the engagement of a war before 1939 despite the actual signing of the
Jews were not only treated poorly during Shakespeare’s time, but also before he was born. In England and Italy, Jews were mistreated because of their beliefs, and in many cases they had to go through a lot of religious prejudice and discrimination. One example of this is when King Edward I issued an order called the Edict of Expulsion on July 18, 1290. This stated that all Jews had to leave England in less than three months. The same day the Edict was proclaimed, letters were sent to most counties telling all Jews they had until November 1 to leave.
Anti-Semitism and Discrimination of the Jewish People Before and Leading up to WW1 Anti-Semitism in the dictionary means hostility to or prejudice against Jews. It has been a problem for the Jewish people ever since the times of the Egyptian Pharaoh’s and there on to about World War 2. The Pharaohs believed that the rapid growth of the Israelite people was a problem waiting to happen because they were thought to side with Egypt’s enemies. The Jewish people do not have a place to call their own so they become parts of other nations. Though the issue with them becoming part of another nation is the citizens already there have the thought of them wanting to take over the nation.
On 14 May 1948, David Ben-Gurion proclaimed the State of Israel, founded on the Zionist Movement, which supports the creation of a Jewish homeland. Directly after this declaration of independence, numerous Arab nations made it clear that they would go to extreme lengths to prevent the establishment of the Jewish state. A coalition of four Arab countries - Egypt, Syria, Trans-Jordan and Iraq - and Palestinian forces immediately attacked Israel, in what became known as the Palestinian War. Numerous wars followed and continue to, up until the present day. Apart from constant conflict with the Arab nations, Israel had also been the victim of unrelenting terrorist attacks, both within its borders and against her citizens throughout the world.
In 1478, the Spanish Inquisition was instituted. During this time, Ferdinand of Aragon and Isabella of Castile were the rulers of Spain. Many historians believed that the Inquisition was a manifestation of extreme religious anti semitism, but contrary to popular belief heresy was most of the time falsely accused onto converts nor were the Jews its main focus. Rather, the Inquisition regarded Jewish converts to Christianity, conversos. Both Norman Roth’s and Stephen H. Haliczer’s thesis’s, state their opinion as to why the Inquisition was instituted.
Empires, which initially was modeled on Lothrop Stoddard’s 1920 volume The Rising Tide of Color Against White World Supremacy” (Will). Buchanan states, “the idea is if we don’t look out the white race will be ---will be utterly submerged,” which underscores American nativism in the 1920s. His nemesis, Jay Gatsby comes from unknown origins, but Tom suspects he is Jewish, as well as a bootlegger tying him to the Jewish organized crime syndicate. Jay Gatsby changed his name at seventeen from James Gatz (Fitzgerald 98), which is an Americanized version of the Jewish name Katz (Will). Gatsby’s status is considered to be ‘off-white’ (Fitzgerald 132).
In 1938, following the Kristallnacht pogrom on November 9-10, around 115,000 Jews emigrated from Germany. Up until 1941, German policy had encouraged emigration, however they gradually increased emigration taxes and limited the amount of money that could be transferred from German banks. Emigration was so popular because it was the first response to the control of the Nazi’s. Around 37,000 to 38,000 Jews emigrated to Germany’s neighboring countries. This included France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Denmark, Czechoslovakia and Switzerland.
This law was introduced on September 15, 1935 right before the start of World War ll which was held on September 1, 1939. Nuremberg Law started in Nuremberg, it tried to define a jew and its rights. Many Party activists had agreed with Hitler’s decision to introduce the Nuremberg Law for some kind of social change. Nuremberg Law was divided into two sets of law which is Law of the Reich Citizen and Law for the Protection of German Blood and German Honour (Hoyt, Edwin P, 1988; Guinn, Robert P, 1992). The problems of marriage between non-Aryans and Aryans was controlled by the law for the Protection of German Blood and German Honour (Jeremy, 2008).
