  • Arab Israeli Conflicts From 1960 1970 - 1,113 words
    Arab / Israeli Conflicts From 1960 - 1970 Israel's incredible victories, in just 6 days, Israeli armies conquered the West Bank, including the Old City of Jerusalem, the Gaza strip and the Syrian Golan Heights, defeating simultaneously the armies of Egypt, Jordan and Syria. But more than that, Israel created a new reality in the Middle East - and sowed the seeds for deep dissent within its own society. Today over 400,000 Israelis live on land conquered in the 1967 war. Their fate and the fate of those lands is the stumbling block on which over 20 years of attempts to forge a comprehensive peace between Israel and her Arab neighbours has floundered. For some Israelis, Zionism was fulfilled wi ...

    ... void. Zionists urged the Arab inhabitants of Israel to "play their part in the development of the state, on the basis of full and equal citizenship". But many Palestinians distrusted the Zionists and looked to their Arab neighbors for help. In 1947-48, a war ensued between the Israel and the Arab nations. The Arab armies, underestimating the Israeli forces and determination, were defeated. From the Arabs perspective, their defeat in Palestine humiliated their armies and discredited their regimes. The UN secured several cease-fires, each time fighting resumed; finally an armistice between each Arab country and Israel was agreed upon separately, after Israel had pushed Arab forces out of t ...

    Arafat And Plo "Yasser Arafat and the Official Recognition of the Palestinian Liberation Organization" Background We must remember that the main enemy of the Palestinian people, now and forever, is Israel.

Buccaneers founded Belize City in the early 1600's and were followed by British Jamaicans, who exploited its timber. Spain long contested British possession, but in 1859 Guatemala and Britain agreed on British Honduras's boundaries. In 1940 Guatemala declared the agreement invalid. British Honduras was granted internal self-government in 1964, but full independence was delayed by Guatemala's claim. Negotiations appeared to resolve that problem, though, and on September 21, 1981, British Honduras, as Belize, became the last British crown ...

  • By 1978 The Thirtyyear War That Had Been Fought Between Egypt And Israel Had Come To A Point Where There Was A Chance For Pea - 1,670 words
    By 1978 the thirty-year war that had been fought between Egypt and Israel had come to a point where there was a chance for peace. The area that had been at the center of the turmoil was the West Bank of the Jordan River and the Gaza Strip. The problem was that both countries believed that they had the rights to this land: Israel, biblically and Egypt, politically. So an invitation by President Jimmy Carter to President Anwar Sadat of Egypt and Prime Minister Menachem Begin of Israel was extended. The invitation was for a meeting in the Catoctin Mountains of Maryland at the presidential retreat, Camp David. The meeting was so that the framework of a peace agreement, known as the Camp David Ac ...

  • Electing Sharon - 319 words
    Electing Sharon If Sharon is elected, Oslo is out of the window But even an agreement of such limited ambition may prove outdated within weeks. Ariel Sharon, the man most likely to be voted Israel's prime minister in the February elections, has made clear he'll pull the plug on the attempted thaw. Polls show that the Likud leader is set to trounce Prime Minister Ehud Barak when Israel votes, and Sharon has already signaled that if he wins, any deals reached between Barak and Arafat aren't worth the paper they're written on. Sharon declared Wednesday that the Oslo Accord is an agreement that no longer exists. Even though he'd opposed Oslo, the last Likud prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, ha ...

  • Ethnic Conflict In The Middle East - 1,932 words
    Ethnic Conflict In The Middle East Ethnic Conflict in the Middle East Ethnic conflicts are well rooted in the world's history and perhaps inherent in human nature. This type of conflict is difficult to resolve as is evident in the situation in the Middle East. The ethnic conflict theory explains that it is not territory, politics, or economics that prevents the achievement of peace between the Israeli and Palestinian peoples, instead, it is a deep-seated hatred of one another that neither group can overcome. The Camp David Summit in July 2000, the most recent attempt at fostering a lasting peace is a clear example of how ethnocentrism can prevents success. Contrasting with neo-realism, which ...

A significant amount of slaves became free because they were the children of white native born and European fathers who sometimes openly acknowledged their mixed offspring and who also usually freed the mother of their children. It would be several generations before mulatto, quadroon, and octoroon women would become the common-law wives and mistresses of white men.

    History Palestinian Liberation Organization 1. Can the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) justifiably claim to be 'the sole, legitimate representative of the Palestinian people.'? The PLO was set up in 1964 by an Arab League decision in response to growing signs of Palestinian unrest. The Palestinians desired to reclaim the lands occupied by Israel, which they felt belonged to them, as said in the Bible. In 1964 the Arab states created the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO). While it was supposed to represent the Palestinians, in reality it represented the views of President Nasser of Egypt, who guided the formation of the PLO. Its first leader made wild and irresponsible threats t ...

    International Studies H Middle East Peace Process The Middle East, or referred as the Near East, has long been one of the world's centers of perpetual instability. The world focuses on this specific region for its warfare between the Arabs and Israelis. The Arabs - Israeli roots of conflict are severely deep, even going back as far as biblical times. Historically the Jews claimed the area called Palestine as their homeland by citing the Old Testament of the Bible as God giving them the right to the promise land. In like fashion, the Arabs claim rights to the land citing various historical precedents from biblical times.1 In addition to complicating this religious issue, modern day Christian ...

    Israeli-Arab Antagonism Western historians are re-examining the troubled 20th century history of Israel and Palestine. Previously published revelations of Israel's military strength and aggressive operations during the 1948 Israeli-Arab war remained confined to a select group of historians: (Simha Flapan, The Birth of Israel: Myths and Realities and Ilian Pappe, The Making of the Arab-Israeli Conflict, 1947-1951). Now, the established media is beginning to publish similar information. Washington Post editor, S. Rosenfeld, has published information that Israel's former Defense Minister, Moishe Dayan, admitted to reporter Rami Tal that Israel provoked 80% of the border clashes between Israel a ...

But does not excuse the moves he made in dealing with the Israelis. The Johnson years marked a major change in the American position in the Middle East. His policies were geared towards keeping his and his partys domestic opinion in good standing. While in o ...
