Land is what made the Crusades last for almost 2,400 months. Hate was a long-lasting impact of the Crusades. The once tolerant and cordial relationship between the Christians and the Muslims was forgotten and replaced by a fairly bitter relationship throughout the years---all because of the Crusades. The Jews were caught up in the middle, and were extremely persecuted in a variety of ways during and after the
The Lebanese Civil War lasted 15 years, starting in 1975 and ending in 1990, involving mostly the Lebanese army, the Phalangists and the Palestinian Liberation Organization. Still today, there are political complications and tension in Lebanon therefore it has never really recovered from the major war that harmed the country significantly. Most of the conflict was located in Beirut, the capital city of Lebanon however there were frequent attacks in various other villages and towns throughout the war. The essay will focus on the causes and the effects of the civil war, varying from political tensions to cultural differences. The years 1975 and 1990 are especially useful for the investigation as they will display the main causes and the main effects that are related to the war.
The main purpose of the The Reich Citizenship Law was to state that only people of German or related blood could be German citizens. The Jewish Virtual Library states what else the law enacted: The Reich Citizenship Law stripped Jews of their German citizenship and introduced a new distinction between "Reich citizens " and "nationals” (Jewish Library). This quote shows the main purposes of the law and what it did to Jews. As stated before, these laws were meant to segregate Jews and discriminate against them. These laws simply became a part of all Jews and it eventually became
It became the fuel for the wave of anti-imperial sentiment amongst colonial nations following the First World War. Although not explicitly affirming the legitimacy of self-determination as a principle, Wilson did, however, declare in his fifth point that “in determining all such questions of sovereignty the interests of the populations concerned must have equal weight with the equitable claims of the government whose title is to be determined.” His rhetoric helped to develop the notion of the possibility of independence from colonial empires for colonized people around the globe. As Manela elaborates, for a time, “Wilson appears to millions worldwide as the herald of an emerging new world in which all people will be granted the right to determine their own future.” The Egyptians were among the many nations inspired by his words to take action against the British, vying for autonomy and recognition as a self-governing
The second election was soon established, nevertheless, the result turned out to nothing as well. As a result, a war broke out. The president of the South sent armies to stop the war, and then held a third election, the election which ended up the same way as the first two. So, on January 29, 1861, Kansas became a slave-free state. The pro-slavery were really mad about the result and how the anti-slavery treated them.
Grant was convinced Lee was exhausted before Cold Harbor - this was an incorrect assumption. A lot of lives were lost. There were no single decisive battles. A key hurdle was the terrain. Another hurdle was the face to face fighting that led to many deaths.
The culture and religion of middle eastern countries has been split for hundreds of years. This division comes from the two constantly conflicting sections of Islam, the Sunnis and Shiites. This same conflict is prevalent in The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini between the cultural groups of the Pashtuns and the Hazaras. This economic and cultural division created tensions between Baba and Ali, and subsequently Amir and Hassan; the course of their lives took drastically different courses after the fall of Afghanistan and the rise of the Taliban. Amir and Baba represent the wealthy and powerful cultural majority of the Pashtuns in the story.
The creation of Israel and the subsequent Israeli occupation of Palestinian territories has profoundly diminished Palestinians’ liberties and senses of agency. For many Palestinian males in particular, this transition to subjugation by Israel after serving as leaders and patriarchs in their communities for generations is particularly salient. Michel Khleifi’s 1987 film Wedding in Galilee portrays Palestinian masculinity and structures of male power as disintegrating under the Israeli occupation. The film suggests that Israeli seizure of power over Palestinian land and people has undermined the traditional Palestinian conceptions of masculinity which are rooted in authority over the land and the community. Although male figures in Wedding in Galilee attempt to find new fields in which to base their construction of masculinity, most
The conflict between authority and disobedience has stayed relevant since Adam and Eve chose to disobey in the Garden of Eden. Since this moment, every civilization has dealt with this relationship. Egyptians faced the exodus of their Israelite slaves from their land, Romans fought with the slave Spartacus who raised an army to fight against the Roman empire, and in the eighteenth century, the French government had the challenge of its civilians revolting against their authority. The balance between authority and disobedience represents a pendulum relationship. When a pendulum swings to one side, it eventually swings to the opposite side with an equal amount of force; thus, the more authority executes its rights on a civilian, the more the
By 1967, the anti-war movement intensified and President Johnson was under constant pressure from the public and even from within the government. The Americans have been involved in the Vietnam War for more than two years, committing more than 400,000 troops and the casualties kept increasing. Many Americans started to believe that the war had became a bloody stalemate and it was a mistake to send troops to Vietnam. Amid all the discontent, Johnson and his administration launched the “success offensive,” an effort to convince the people that American was winning the war and the government policies were succeeding. As part of this effort, government spokespersons and news media began reassuring the people with exaggerated positivity, supported with statistical report of the progress.
