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 causes and effects of the war are mainly political, socio-economic and religious. The main cause and spark of the Lebanese conflict was driven by political issues and complications within the government as well as the bordering countries’ complications. The Arab-Israeli conflict during 1970 to 1973 played a huge role in sparking the Lebanese conflict because the Israelis took control over the land which caused a huge influx of refugees to the surrounding countries, including Lebanon. Lebanon was home to more than 100,000 of the Muslim refugees and is still refuge to many to this day.
Esther, with the help and guidance of Mordecai, is the one who stops the annihilation of the Jews. There is no divine intervention, only small mentions of practices to honor YHWH. The only reason this text would need to be included in the canon is to explain the origin of Purim. Also troubling for many modern Jews and Christians, is the destruction of the Jew’s enemies, with the text claiming they killed thousands of people. This is problematic, because no divine command is given.
The documentary "Hollywoodism: Jews, Movies, and the American Dream", explains how a number of Jewish immigrants in the beginning of nineteen century built the most known six movie studios in Hollywood. Despite America 's open-door immigration policy for all immigrants, Jews, perhaps more than other minorities, encountered a new form a discrimination. The documakers say that they were viewed as outsiders and were blacklisted from working in certain fields such as finance, banking, and other higher education careers. Hence, they formed their own communities and their own version of real America, practicing their own religion, opening their own businesses in the garment industry and movie production. Because of the intense discrimination against Jews, especially those involved in the movie-theater industry in New York and Chicago, many of them moved to Hollywood, California building their own studios and working as screenwriters, directors, and producers.
This was a huge controversy from November 20th, 1945- October 1st, 1946 a.k.a. the Nuremberg Trials because people all over the world didn’t think that the Nazi’s deserved a fair trial (History Channel, par 7). However, after reading “Nuremberg: A Fair Trial? A Dangerous Precedent” by Charles E. Wyzanski and “Nuremberg In Retrospect” by Robert H. Jackson, I believe the Nuremberg trials was a “fair” trial, but wasn’t a real law trial. Almost a month after Germany surrender and World War II ended in 1945, four representatives of the Allied powers met in London to discuss the plan to deal with the accused captives (Jackson, page 4).
Throughout the 19th century Native Americans were treated far less than respectful by the United States’ government. This was the time when the United States wanted to expand and grow rapidly as a land, and to achieve this goal, the Native Americans were “pushed” westward. It was a memorable and tricky time in the Natives’ history, and the US government made many treatments with the Native Americans, making big changes on the Indian nation. Native Americans wanted to live peacefully with the white men, but the result of treatments and agreements was not quite peaceful. This precedent of mistreatment of minorities began with Andrew Jackson’s indian removal policies to the tribes of Oklahoma (specifically the Cherokee indians) in 1829 because of the lack of respect given to the indians during the removal laws.
They wanted it for themselves and weren’t satisfied with just tolerance from another group of people. The Crusades lasted long because of the land. Both sides were persistent in their efforts to defend or invade Jerusalem. After the Muslims retook Jerusalem in the 3rd crusade, the Christians launched 11 more crusades to try to take that piece of land back. Land is what made the Crusades last for almost 2,400 months.
BOOK REVIEW THE IRON CAGE: THE STORY OF THE PALESTINIAN STRUGGLE FOR STATEHOOD BY RASHID KHALIDI The question of Palestinian statehood has increasingly become a principal concern for states and for the understanding of the international framework. Reactions to the Palestinian predicament are immensely different in the Western World and in the Arab World. Rashid Khalidi acknowledges this difference in approach and response by the two worlds and the inconveniences stemming therefrom in his book, The Iron Cage: The Story of the Palestinian Struggle for Statehood. The book is written as a historical essay, with the core endeavor to determine why Palestinians, unlike so many other people and states, have failed to actualize their dream to be a self-governing state. While ‘The Iron Cage’ is more of an evaluation of the conflict and the question of Palestinian statehood, than an exercise in original research, Khalidi provides Western readers with a new and insightful approach to the question, thus making this particular work his masterpiece.
Native Americans were forced to pick up their homes and resettle in areas that were less than sufficient to meet their basic needs. If Native Americans were not compliant, Americans would murder them. Although Manifest Destiny was seen as an inevitable movement among Americans and resulted in the formation of the American West in the Nineteenth century, it was truthfully an act of invasion and subjugation against peoples who had settled the land for hundreds of years earlier. Manifest Destiny led to an obvious upsurge in racial
His career is a lecturer in English and later was promoted as a professor. He was born in Jerusalem because his family was forces to flee by the Zionists and as a result he wrote numerous books indicating his support for Palestinians and the Arab peoples including his book on ‘The questions of Palestine’ wrote in 1979. One of the main reason for this is because of his childhood experienced and tragedy during his childhood where he described the Zionist as racist and prejudice towards Islam. Therefore he was also outspoken of Palestinians political rights. Among other his well-known and most influential book of the 20th century is Orientalism, where he portrayed the biased and stereotype of the western scholars when studying the Islamic world questioning their misinterpretation of them.
It originated when Christianity was created. Christians blamed Jews for Jesus' suffering. The establishment of Israel as a nation allowed anti-Semites, people who express anti-Semitism, to direct it toward a particular nation. Anti- Semitism evolved over the years, becoming more violent and more obvious. After the Holocaust, anti-Semitism steadily decreased, however, during 2015-2016 anti-Semitism rapidly increased.
However, Britain’s support of the Jewish homeland was reaffirmed. Proposal was made to establish a legislative council which Palestinians rejected because the representation was unfair. When the Jewish immigration somewhat increased in 1928, British policy was hesitating under the conflicting pressures of Arabs and Jews. Immigration increased sharply after the Nazi regime in Germany persecuted Jews in 1933. Approximately 62.000 Jews entered Palestine in 1935.
The Jews of the Second Temple period, occurring between 538 BCE and 70 BC, were exposed to many outside cultures that threatened their existence as a political, spiritual, and peaceful people. Politically, the Jews were governed against their will by many foreign leaders such as the Roman monarch Herod Agrippa and the Greek king Antiochus. Spiritually, the Jews were deprived of many of their religious traditions and pushed towards alien beliefs and practices. The Jews who had tried beforehand to be a peaceful people, now had to resort to fighting and revolting to live in harmony. The responses of Jews in these various generations were dependent on whether they had a strong and courageous leader who led them through these challenging times
Journal Entry Two 1. While it clear that the debate of slavery was the major cause to the American Civil War, there are number of pressing secondary causes that helped to accelerate the process of division within the country. Primary to these secondary causes is the effect of territorial expansion and the tension it brought between the North and South. The vast economic differences between the North and South provided a perfect scenario for political and social conflict in the new territories. As the Western territory of the Americas continued to be explored, political debate was sparked over the spread of slavery into these newly created states.
This article is about the similarities between the Trojans after the Trojan War and the Jewish population with the end of the Holocaust. To translate the second half of the Aeneid into modern application is very difficult as we do not have some kind of political movement very close to what happens. The situation that the Trojans encountered after the destruction of their city is similar to what happened to the Jewish population after World War II. First, there was a mass genocide and then a return to the native homeland. Religion is a factor in both, as well as the way the people live.
If I was alive in first century CE Judea and I was born into the Jewish race I would have probably belonged to the Sicarii group. Sicarii was the name given to a group of Jewish zealots active in the time of the Roman rule of Palestine. In 66 C.E. a wide spread and violent conflict erupted in the land of Israel between the Jewish community and the Roman empire. The Roman empire controlled the region at the time and the Jews felt that they were being treated very unfairly by the Roman government.
