Islam Developing Trade Routes in Africa and Asia

out by long years of war, and defeated Egypt, Syria, Iraq, Persia and palestine. The impetus of these conquests extended to many brilliant battles, which were commanded by such great generals as Khalid ibn al-Walid. The battles went beyond the Islamic territory across Middle Asia. Triggered by the financial rewards from defeat of more developed and richer areas, Islamic armies were seen as effective leaders and formidable conquerors, and as builders instead of destroyers. They also replaced the governance in the countries they conquered, as well as the indigenous armies and rulers, but kept most of their culture, government,… Continue Reading...

Frankfurt School and Political Science on Totalitarianism

less concerned with the authoritarianism of Israel's leaders and their actions towards palestine is a question that should be asked as well, if one is to follow Arendt's own conjuring of totalitarian evils and the nationalistic fervor that supports it. The scapegoat clause could easily apply in palestine as she uses it in Germany. However, from the perspective of the political scientist, a more subtle interpretation can be given to the facts that resides neither in the Critical Theorist perspective of the Marxist (post-Marxist) Frankfurt School or in the lazy victim/scapegoat narrative utilized by Arendt. The complexity of social… Continue Reading...

Athens and Sparta

Greek lifestyle and culture overwhelmed the society. Every major urban city within Rome's Empire witnessed it. palestine, too, witnessed the growth of several urban Greek communities. Hellenism represented city culture, with every city trying to mimic the Polis to a certain extent. Greece, with its understanding of native privileges, power structures and social capacities, facilitated the growth of a remarkable social system which was adopted by all Mediterranean lands (MAG). What ended Alexander's reign? Prior to his Arabian campaign, Alexander the Great came down with a high fever after attending a private meeting at the home of Medius of… Continue Reading...

Balfour Declaration

the proclamation of guaranteeing the establishment of a home for the Jews in palestine.[footnoteRef:1] The Balfour Declaration as a political event had both supporters who thought it was a good and fitting idea but at the same time also faced major criticism. On one hand, the Balfour Declaration was given support by the British government and the Zionism movement. On the other hand, the Arab population did not agree with this event as it not only caused a major displacement of them in their land, but also granted land to individuals that did not originally lay any claim to… Continue Reading...

Israeli-palestinian Conflict

and after 9/11 are quite different with respect to the role that the Israel/ palestine conflict plays. Since 9/11, the majority of terrorist incidents in the United States are committed by domestic, right-wing terrorists (Neiwert, et al, 2017), and the majority of "jihadist" terrorists are domestic, not imported, there remains a threat from the Middle East. Within the segment of homegrown jihadist-inspired terrorists, there were some 20 attacks carried out by about 178 people since September 11th (Jenkins, 2017). Among foreign-born terrorists who committed or plotted attacks in the US, the largest number were from Pakistan, at 20, and the… Continue Reading...

Niger Sudan and the Issue Of Slavery

addressed in Africa, organizations like the UN have to start giving it more attention. The people of palestine are not the only ones suffering. With some work, thanks to activists like Deng, the voice of African slaves can rise up and be heard and the world’s biggest organization dedicated to human rights can take action. Conclusion Slavery has existed in Africa for centuries in one form or another. However, as human rights and respect for others diminishes, slavery’s forms become worse and worse. Children are sold into slavery, are beaten and abused—women, too; and men are forced to live… Continue Reading...

Impact Of Culture on Ptsd in the Middle East

of the major areas in the Middle East that have been characterized by increased conflicts in recent years include palestine, Iraq, and Lebanon. Given increased conflicts and combat in the Middle East, PTSD and other trauma-related mental health conditions are expected to become public health crisis in the Arab world (Suto, 2016). Therefore, public health professionals in the Middle East face the need to develop appropriate measures for diagnosis and treatment of PTSD and other trauma-related disorders. However, the treatment of this condition and other traumatic mental health disorders is significantly affected by culture. This paper examines how culture… Continue Reading...

Muslim Women in Eastern and Western Literature

devastating and vivid tale that is common in this part of the world and in palestine in the past and present: Palestinian women give up everything they have and everything that matters to them for the men in their lives, only to receive zero acknowledgement or commemoration by their nation or their relatives (Khalifeh). This is a common thread in feminist middle eastern literature today: a scathing portrayal of the treatment of women and the tremendous sacrifice of Muslim women—as well as the often cruel and uncaring world around them. Inequality continues to define the lives of women in… Continue Reading...

Impact Of Mainstream Media on Perception Of Events

in - depth evaluations of important explanatory topics in news headlines and text. Hence, with regard to the palestine - Israel issue (Philo & Berry, 2011), for instance, the research discovered that content analysis of a total of 89 news reports displayed only seventeen lines of writing from transcribed reports dealing with the conflict’s history. Journalists using the term ‘occupied’ failed to explain that it is a military occupation, causing certain audience groups to erroneously believe Palestinians were ‘occupiers’, as they were residing in the disputed territory (Happer & Philo, 2013). Media reactions to the 2008 financial crisis and… Continue Reading...

Palestine and the Jewish State

palestine under Occupation: Reaching the ‘Other’ through Bearing Witness and Citizen Journalism Introduction The conflict in palestine is largely portrayed in the mainstream media as a complex issue (Chomsky & Pappe, 2015). A theoretical reason for this portrayal of the conflict is rooted in what Robinson (2002) has described as the ‘CNN effect’—the special relationship that exists between the state and the media, which facilitates the construction of a narrative that supports the aims of the state, particularly when it comes to foreign intervention. Al-Ghazzi (2017)… Continue Reading...

Palestine Her Story Documentary

promote; 3) to analyze or interrogate; and 4) to express” (p. 21). In my documentary, palestine, her story, my aim was to observe—i.e., to record, reveal and preserve—the stories of the Palestinian women who served as the subject of my film. The film is therefore an observational documentary. Looking back on my original proposal, I can say that I have completed at least a portion of my original project. The focus of my 20-minute film is on the three Palestinian women who live a successful life in London. Each woman is of a different generation and thus each one… Continue Reading...

Social Innovation and Change

more readily available: more information can be found online about the Israel- palestine conflict; more information can be found and shared about organizing to protest at rallies or things like this—all of which provides more opportunities for studying people and societies for sociologists. Studying society may continue to evolve in the future in response to social changes particularly with regard to how ‘privacy’ as a social value is changing and how this may make studying people easier because everyone puts their life stories up on Facebook now and leaves a digital trail of their thoughts on Twitter. However, as demographics… Continue Reading...

The Problem Of Fallacies

settled. Or they could write their Congressmen to urge Israel to arrive at a solution with palestine so that the conflict is no longer so troublesome to observers. This argument would thus take a better utilitarian approach to the problem by showing that the boycott is unproductive, not because Israelis do not feel they have done anything wrong and will only push back harder (an argument that is sure to infuriate boycotters and cause them to push back as well), but because the boycott hurts innocent businesses and others who depend on the products that they make. The argument… Continue Reading...

Jerusalem Dome Of Rock

call their own. The British were in control of Jerusalem and palestine at the time and they arranged to give access to the region to the Zionists with the Balfour Declaration. The Jewish state was recognized by the U.S. in 1948—which gave them access to the structure, but today the site is still governed by a Muslim committee called the Waqf, which does not permit any excavation on the site as Muslims would view such as desecration (Hammer). However, both the Israeli government and the Muslim committee must agree before any construction is done on the site—as was the… Continue Reading...
