Citizens were now strongly motivated and ready to invade irreligious opponents. They thought that Jerusalem was their spiritual home and they need to protect it. Their morale was so strong, so that they didn’t fear death. Different battles may prove their morale strength. For example battle of Dorel against the Turks and Seljuk on 1 July 1097, when a small amount of crusaders won a crushing victory over many thousands of Muslims.
From the three documents provided, Documents A, B, and C. I think that the Early Islamic Empire expanded war, by truced, and rare peace. It changed dramatically. The spread of Islam from 632-661. The battle in al-Yarmuk was the fiercest and bloodiest of its kind. According to Document A Al-Biladuri, “The Battle of the Yarmuk” “The Greeks and their followers in this battle tied themselves to each other by chains, so that no one would run away.” When anybody goes to war, the only thing that you think of is, “Get me out of here!” But, putting chains together so that they would not run away is really hard.
For impressment of that Britain seized American ships and forced the men to fight . Finally,British attacked American ships which was called “The Chesapeake” when Americans refused to let British search their ships, so British sunk the ships in return .

Throughout their empire, giving gifts became a regular practice for securing the empire. “There was established a system of stipends or direct salary payments (ata-’) to warriors serving in the Islamic armies.” (Document C, Excerpt from Fred Donner, The Early Islamic Conquests, 1981). People who cooperated with the Muslims, like the Persians, were also given stipends as long as they embraced Islam. By having this trade, it encouraged people to convert because they benefited economically as well as learning the traditions of Islam. However, it wasn’t only money that made Islam spread so quickly, it was also because information spread rapidly since people were so open to learning and discovery.
However once Rome recognized the true threat they faced from Carthage they also began to expand their naval capabilities. They recognized that Carthage held an advantage on the sea due to their long history of seamanship so Roman ingenuity designed the the Corvus. This was 30 foot long gangway which could be lowered from the ship's bow on to the decks of enemy ships and secured with a huge metal spike allowing them to unleash a squadron of Roman fighters on-board the enemy ship. The Romans also copied the designs of ships they captured and Archemedes, who was the greatest inventor of the age, came up with many improvements and original designs that turned many ships into "machines of war". These innovations allowed Rome to finally become a strong and great naval power coupled with the ships confiscated from
The battle between the Ottoman Empire and the Holy League known is as the Battle of Lepanto and it is the most important for the Christian religion. It is of great significance because if the Holy League had not won, the Ottoman Empire would have taken over Europe, and destroyed the Christian religion. The forming of the Holy League was important as well. The new naval technique used by the Christian forces and the first success to push back and erode the Ottoman empire were the key concepts to defeat the Ottomans. The well-known crusades were fought between the end of the eleventh century and the late thirteenth century.
They still felt that Muhammad was a threat. The tribe would raid and inflict economical problems, which in resulted an increase of tension. As a result of this tension, Battle of Badr was established. A battle between 900 Mecca forces and 300 Muslims at a caravan, Badr. Muslims forces strongly defeated the Meccan forces, which the Qur 'an states this is a development of the spirit and
The Iliad by Homer The Iliad was a really good representation of the chaotic war-torn times of the area surrounding the Mediterranean Sea; this includes the countries Rome and Greece. It was a time where nations were trying to expand their power and influence and warriors were claiming their spoils of war. I mean the beginning of book I of The Iliad, Achilles and Agamemnon are arguing over the rewards and the spoils of war. Agamemnon didn’t want to give up his prize girl Chryses in order to please the God Apollo and stop the plague and the rain of arrow falling from Olympus. However, in the end Agamemnon took Achilles’ girl, Briseis, which really hurt Achilles in the end.
The tension between the majority of Sunnis and Shias is what’s keeping ISIS strong and that is why they aimed to keep exploiting the relationship between the two groups. The only way to over throw or weaken ISIS is for the Sunnis and Shias to come together as one and fight ISIS instead of fearing them. From time to time Shias the minority group, have been brutally attacked. In 1514 an ottoman ordered over 40,000 Shias to be massacred. Around the 15th and 19th century some Indian emperors have executed several Shias Scholars and destroyed their sacred sites.

The early Islamic empire expanded by using different methods such as conquering lands, spreading their religion, treaties, or bribery. According to document B, “We [Abd al-Aziz’s forces] will not harass him [Theodmir], nor remove him from power.” The Muslims spread their religion and many people converted though the Muslims made treaties to keep peace between different lands. Muslims did have to conquer lands where people did not want to convert. According to document A, “The Muslims gathered together, and the Greek army marched against them… The battle they fought at al-Yarmuk was of the fiercest and bloodiest kind.” The Muslims fought very hard to get more land. The document also stated that women took part in the fight.
