THEORETICAL FRAMEWORK It involves using theories to explain the existing problem in various situations. Realism theory and the dependency theory will be used to explain the existing conflict between Israel and Palestine. It will also be able to justify the use of force by the Israeli government when dealing with Palestinian Hamas. Realism theory in the Israeli and Palestine conflict Realism theory explains how states are selfish, struggle to gain power and succeed in acquiring its national interests in the international system. Realists identify world politics as a trans-historical and trans-geographical struggle for power, and that in this context Thucydides’ dictum that, “the strong do what they have the power to do and the weak accept what they have to accept” (where strength and weakness are calculated by military capabilities) is the stark and universal truth (Schmidt, 2007; Thucydides, 1972, p. 402).
That gaining of independence shows us the danger of ignorance as shows by Western colonizers. Said’s work is can also be viewed as a passionate defense of Eastern Cultural and Historical Heritage. As it could be concluded that Said aim in his work was to show, through history, that Western understanding of the Oriental (Orientalism) does not constitutes the true about the Orient. And that most knowledge the West claim to have about the Orient is merely biased conclusion, founded on their own imagination and fantasies
According to Huntington on his premises, religion can be a main factor why there is clash of civilization, especially if the religion is involved in the world politics. The issue that this syndrome brought is how far the “kin-country syndrome” could help to understand the Arab attitude towards Palestinian-Israeli conflict and peace process. The Arab nations have seemed to group together against the one state in the area that does not share the same civilization as they do which in this case is Israel. At the same time, the U.S. support Israel which many believe that the main reason the U.S. backs Israel is because they identify Israeli as from the same civilization as they are rather than the
Therefore, this paper will discuss Nozick’s entitlement theory, what Nozick understands when principles of distribution are patterned and the identifying of those principles, i.e. patterned and end-state principles. It will discuss how Nozick believes patterns cause problems within a society and will argue that patterns and end-state principles upset liberty, redistribution and property rights of a person. It will additionally assess if Nozick’s rejection is plausible by discussing some of Rawls whom is a defender of patterned principles of justice, but will result that Nozick’s entitlement theory is plausible as it is best to look at a society’s history, to know that the distribution of goods is
a CRITICAL TOPICAL REVIEW ASSIGNMENT Name Course Title Professors Name Institution Affiliation Date Critical Topic Review Introduction ‘On War' which is Carl von Clausewitz famous work, it is a prism on the essential understandings of the war theory. There are dominant political positions that he talks about to back his statement such as political situations being the basis of conflict, war's subordination as a tool of policy and war as a continuance for politics (Clausewitz 2008). To Clausewitz, the only way to comprehend war is in the framework of politics as he openly states that, "politics is the womb in which war develops, where its outlines already exist in their hidden rudimentary form, like
In his letter to Rabin, Arafat confirmed the PLO’s recognition of Israel’s right to live in peace and security. He also expressed his commitment to renouncing the use of terrorism and changing those parts of the Palestinian National Charter which were inconsistent with these statements.

For example South Asia is commonly identified as an area conflicts and endless rivalry. This is because mistrust is the main obstacle of South Asian international relations. Safety policies of the South Asian states are over-all realist positioned. Collaboration as well as cooperation amongst states is not in any way easy to come by and it’s followed by ample uncertainty as well as caution. (Smith 1986, 33).
The next source states, “Thus, the role of the National Guard in homeland security must become a part of war planning for any future war contingency”(“The Role of the National Guard”). National Guard used to be considered the homeland security team, but with war becoming more intense with countries all around the world, the Guard soldiers must go to help their country in foreign lands. This article also states, “...with the imminent terrorist threat to the homeland and the increasing likelihood that U.S. civilians may be targeted at home in future conflicts, the homeland is a theater of war”(“The Role of the National Guard”). Although there are still needs for deployment in foreign countries, National Guard must still work on homeland security while still having to be deployed when needed. The National Guard has a major role in American security but also has to go to foreign countries across the globe to help with war efforts.
These identities can threaten our rational moral understanding of problems. He says, human society does need more than justice does, but it need justice. He has emphasized irrationality of many of our perceptions of identity; he noted the Communitarian approach seems to hold a persuasive power, putting cultural identity before reasoning. Nevertheless, he argues, in fact it is hard to believe that we do not have a choice in determining our identity.

This refers to the institutionalization of the media, as the media has excised into the scene of exchange of political ideas. The media has become a central figure in creating public coherence concerning political decisions. In addition to this, it is an acting institution, in the creation of the general political agenda. This emerging role came from the classical conception of a watchdog or “the 4th government power,” to an independent actor playing an important part in the determination of political discourses . Depending on how one uses the media, it can either be an important tool to create peace or a crucial weapon in conflict.
