Human Rights in the Arab

There was even a statement that said that nearly 1000's of people were in prison due to political detainment and hundreds of others were missing. The fact that Syrian law does not allow the condemned to stand for oneself in the court of law and the fact that most of the judges and law bearers are corrupted goes to show…

Geert Hofstede: Cultural Dimensions Please

In terms of business this short-term orientation focuses on quick results i.e. companies are driven by quarterly results. Consumption is driven by immediate gratification, sensitivity to social trends and rituals. There's not much focus on saving. Management is based on self-reliance, personal achievement, hard work and managers are judged on short-term results. No scores available for Indonesia and the Arab World on this dimension. In summary, France and Italy have the most in common, both being Western, democratic societies, although France is both more authoritarian and less masculine than Italy. Both are highly individualistic and short-term in temporal orientation, though. Indonesia and the Arab World all score high on the Power Distance scale compared to Italy, which makes them more authoritarian societies. France and Italy are both highly individualistic Western societies, while Indonesia and the Arab World are collectivist cultures. Italy is by far the most masculine culture of the four, followed by the Arab world, with France and Indonesia more on the feminine side. France, Italy and the Arab World all have a high desire for avoidance of uncertainty while Indonesia scores only medium low on this index. Both France and Italy are short-term……

Israeli Occupation of the Gaza

It is therefore evident that U.S. financial aid actually becomes a source for other countries to commit violence, injustice, and atrocities against other countries or societies. It is also worth noting that Petter's article was a personal narration of her condition and the political debacle she had to go through in order to justify the protest she had joined at Israel. Speaking for other people's protests against Israel's commitment of injustice against Palestine, she asserted, "[f]or daring to witness and report the brutal effects the wall is taking on the Palestinian population, I have been deemed a "security threat" by the State of Israel ... " Her narrative remained an open-ended report on the continuing conflict between Israel and Palestine supporters. The personal tone that Petter maintained in her article worked in making her article an effective and persuasive piece. Her first-hand account of violence about the controversy at the Gaza strip, and her outright condemnation of the U.S. government's support of the Israel government's policies and actions on its conflict with Palestine had been clear enough for the readers to know the author's position about the issue. Based on these characteristics of the author and the editorial she wrote, it is not surprising then that she would entice readers to support her advocacy on the injustices committed against Palestine. Though Petter's personal tone may work against her as a journalist, the circumstances under which she wrote her narrative becomes admissible enough for the readers to empathize and agree with her thoughts and opinions about the issue being discussed. Overall, the author provided persuasive and more informative news about the Israel-Palestine conflict more than Buchanan did in his editorial.…

Contemporary Issues in International Relations

¶ … Israel Unlike the historical state of Israel, the modern state of Israel owes credit for its creation to a series of secular actions, despite the religious nature of the country. In order to understand its creation, it is important to look at historic events immediately preceding the creation of Israel, the wars that followed the creation of Israel, and current Israeli occupation of lands that were initially outside of Israeli control. Many people attribute the creation of Israel to Hitler's actions during World War II, and assume that the League of Nations created Israel as a way of making amends to the victims of the Holocaust. However, that explanation, while partially accurate, is overly simplistic, and ignores the larger political influences that led to the creation and enduring existence of the modern state of Israel. It is important to understand that, despite Israel being under non-Jewish rule from the Middle Ages until the creation of the modern state of Israel, many Jews still lived in Israel. In fact, Jews have been moving from Europe to Israel since the Middle Ages. However, the movement of European Jews to Europe dramatically increased in pace in the late 1800s, when many European countries began to increase their persecution of Jews. In response, Theodor Herzl promoted the return of Jews to Israel and the establishment of a Jewish state in Israel; this movement was known as Zionism. Prior to World War I, approximately 40,000 Jews settled in Palestine as part of the Zionist movement. During World War I, the British Foreign Secretary Arthur Balfour made the Balfour Declaration, which favored establishing a Jewish state in Palestine. In response, the Jewish Legion assisted the British in conquering Israel. However, Israel was not designated as a separate state. There was tremendous Arab opposition to the creation of an independent Jewish state, largely driven by the fact that an Arab state, Palestine, already existed in the proposed space. Despite the opposition, the League of Nations gave Great Britain control over Palestine, with the purpose of establishing an independent Jewish state. Arab opposition to an increasing influx of Jews resulted in Great Britain restricting the number of Jews who could immigrate to Palestine, but the rise of Nazism caused an increase in both legal and illegal Jewish immigrants. By the end of World War II, about one-third of Palestinians were Jewish. Great Britain announced plans to…

Media in Other Places

Media in Other Countries Many countries around the world have become more and more generally permissive as to what is allowed to be aired and broadcast in the media sphere. Notable example areas of this in motion are the United States, Canada and much or Europe. However, one area of the world that has fought against this increased openness and permissiveness tooth and nail is the Middle East, and Saudi Arabia is certainly no exception. There have been glimmers of said permissiveness and expansion in what is acceptable, but in a society (like Saudi Arabia's) that notoriously anti-open in terms of media and what can be said, there has been a large amount of blowback. The Kraidy article covered in this report has many corollaries to the very similar Tomlinson treatise. Kraidy, like Tomlinson, posited that public space is the public arena of ideas, media and brand preferences that are allowed to permeate (or that permeate anyway even with the resistance) the public sphere of influence. This perspective and world is kept very closed in Saudi Arabia and countries like it. Not all countries that do this are Muslim, so it would be specious (and perhaps even bigoted) to suggest that. Some corners of the United States, as an extreme example, are very intolerant of outside influences and media. Kraidy View of Public Space The Kraidy article takes a very similar tangent but its focus is clearly on Saudi Arabia and the supposed/alleged infringement and violation of the local cultures by Western influence. This invasion of culture and permissiveness is view by a Moroccan noted on page 345 of the Kraidy article as a pollution of the local authentic culture and the integration of non-local capitalist and other cultural influence muddies the waters and leads to an elimination of the local culture. Interestingly, the Moroccan who made the statement did not focus on Morocco itself, but rather the wider Arab world. Also, the person who made the statement was a woman. Such a statement from a woman (either for or against Western influence) would likely not be paid a second thought if it came from a European or American source, but for a woman to be that vocal about anything Arab is a bit eyebrow-raising. This is not because she's a woman but because women are rarely so outspoken in the Arab world. it's not a bad thing that she…

Arab-Israeli Conflict Tensions Between Israel and Palestinians

Arab-Israeli Conflict Tensions between Israel and Palestinians have been of great concern to the rest of the world ever since they began, in 1947. In that year, Great Britain, who governed the area as a protectorate and with the approval of the United Nations (Bennis, 1997), partitioned the land so that both Palestinians and Israelis could live in what was then called Palestine. This action was taken as a response to the Holocaust of World War II. World powers felt that Jewish people needed a homeland, and some Jews had been quietly moving to Palestine for some years. These "Zionists" believed they had an historical claim to the land, but the Palestinians currently living there viewed it as theirs, and they had been there for quite some time as well. HISTORY What looked to the United Nations and Great Britain as helping to right what had been a great wrong to the Jews looked like a colonial land grab to the Palestinians (Friedman, 2002). Arab countries recall the founding of the Islamic religion the way Americans might talk about the Civil War, as fairly recent history. The Arabs of the region knew that their influence had dominated most of Asia, large parts of Africa, and even into parts of Spain. In the process they had developed a system of government the blended religion and law together and that grew into a sophisticated form of government, one that tried to be tolerant of the religion as well as the cultures they had conquered (Ismael, 1999). European powers, however, had been alarmed by the spread of Islam, especially Spain. Arab rule peaked in the 10th century, and Europe responded with two crusades into Arab lands in the 11th and 125th centuries, with both religious and economic goals. The Crusaders wanted what they called "The Holy Land" under Christian rule and Western domination, and believed this to be God's will. Having a mandate from God justified extreme actions, and the battles were bloody and horrific. Europe also wanted an economic and secure route to the Far East to obtain such things as silk and spices. Unfortunately for the Arabs, while Europe attacked them from the East, Mongols from Asia attacked them from the West. Only Egypt was spared from repeated warfare (Ismael, 1999). While the Crusades are often treated in Western history as a curiosity, in Arab memory the Crusades brought down one…

Israeli Palestinian Conflict and the Middle East

International Politics The Threat of Terrorism the Context of International Relations between the U.S. And the Middle East The threat of terrorism in the U.S. is inextricably linked to the events in the Middle East and the perceived role of the U.S. many of those events; especially in the Israeli/Palestinian disputes. The U.S. is a major power and the country has not been afraid to use that power in international relations. It is the way that the power has been used, often for the support of Israel, to the detriment of Arabic nations. To appreciate this one can look at the way in which the U.S. has supported Israel, this was seen with the 'friendship' formed between Kennedy and David Ben-Gurion (Bass 2). Building ion the foundation laid by Kennedy, other presidents extended the relationship (Bass 5). It was rumored that during the Six Day War in 1967 Lyndon B. Johnson supplied the Israelis with arms, although this has been denied. More conclusive evidence of support for Israelis seen when, during the Yom Kippur War in 1973, the U.S. did supply arms to the Israelis following the early successes of the Syrian and Egyptian forces who were seeking to regain land they had previously lost to Israel. When this support of Israel is placed into the context of the founding of the country; an artificially created state which saw the United Nations portioning land from the area known as Palestine for the homing of Jewish immigrants, the interference can be seen as an extension of the west support for the Jewish state against the Arab States. For those who had been in the region for many generations, and saw land take, first by their UN and then by the fighting of the Israelis, to gain more land, the support from the U.S. was an unwelcome interference, hindering their own interests. The U.S. was not only active in supporting Israel, power has been used to support its own interests, such as the aid given to Iraq in the Iran/Iraq war; a war that resulted in the loss of approximately 1 million lives, one may ask why the U.S. choose to interfere and if that interference helped to prolong the a war and increase loss of life. The first and second Gulf Wars were also examples of the power of the U.S., at the time it was argued that the invasions were…

Foreign Policy Regarding Israel &

Israel has only one-tenth of a percent of the population of the world and still receives nearly 40% of U.S. aid, and that is generally more than $3.5 billion a year now. There are other funds also transferred and that is more than $1 billion a year also. The closeness to Israel of United States has compelled U.S. To use its veto in its support in United Nations to protect it from censure many times. (10 Things to Know about U.S. Policy in the Middle East) The problems caused through American foreign policy and the actions of Israel are in two ways. The first is that it seems clear all the time that America is supporting the actions of Israel though the actions are against basic values of America -- life, liberty, rule of law, and the principle that a person is innocent till proven guilty. An individual may be acting in a way that he feels fit, but a national government cannot operate in that manner. The support of America for Israel is clear to not only Palestinians, but to the rest of the Arab world, as the support is seen both in military form as also political forms. (Israel's Policy of Targeting Terrorists: Implications for the U.S.) Yet it does not seem that there will be any changes in this policy in America. One of the Democratic contenders against President Bush had clearly stated that he did not have any fundamental objection to the policies followed by Bush. There were calls from him for an end to violence by Palestinians, but no call for an end to violence by Israel. There were also no calls for end of Israeli occupation, Israel's compliance with resolutions of United Nations Security council, or even a call for withdrawal from the occupied territories, etc. (Howard Dean: Hawk in Dove's Clothing?) In short, there is going to be no change in America's policy even if the opposition came to power. Conclusion: Making recommendations to the U.S. government regarding its policies on Israel and Palestine would just be a waste of breath. References Zaharna, R.S.

Arab Spring: The Political Movement

Hosni Mubarak was also tried in court in August, the same year, for the responsibility of the dead protestors in the revolution. The following month, the military announced that parliament's election will be help in November which will be followed by elections for the new president. The military would still be in charge after the elections to ensure that the right democracy sets in and the parliament would thus be answerable to the military till the time that the new constitution and government was in place and functioning well. This transition of governance was anticipated to continue till 2013. Yet, even nearing the end of 2013, Egypt's future and governance still seems to be unclear (Aa, 2011). Arab Spring and terrorism activity in Egypt The overall impact and conclusions from the first election since the revolution in Egypt are clear indications of what is in store. The Islamic communities in the country have increased their popularity and thus are experiencing more power in the region. This is primarily so because most Muslim communities like the 'Muslim Brotherhood' are strong advocates of democracy and the ending of the tyrannous rule of the Egyptian military. On the other hand, creating havoc seems to be part of the agenda for groups like 'Muslim Brotherhood' so as to serve their hidden or ulterior interests. The Muslim Brotherhood has also been accused of bribing the locals in the election to attain votes from the locals which does not encourage a very democratic stance. It was February 11 when Mubarak resigned and the West-supported Egyptian military took over, however the purpose with which the revolution began seems to be lost again as the hunger for power overcomes the demand for democracy. This could lead to increased tensions and breeding grounds for terrorism (Lutterbeck, 2013). Impact of the Arab Spring on the state and non-state sponsored terrorism in Egypt It is no secret that the U.S. has double standards when it comes to democracy i.e. defending democratic structure for their own people and denying it to nations around the world like Israel and Palestine. It is the Arab Spring and the string of revolutions in it that is challenging this approach to democracy and the double standards of the West. The Arab world has lost faith in the ways and policies of the West due to recent failed implementations and thus the Arab world seems to be…

Arab-Israeli Conflict the Year 1973

Arab-Israeli Conflict The year 1973 marked the first time Arab nations publicly acknowledged the existence of the state of Israel and ended a period of conflict that had begun with the establishment of the Jewish state in 1948. The years between 1948 and 1973 were marked with an almost constant struggle between Israel and its Arab neighbors in which Israel consolidated, and even expanded its territory. However, this expansion was challenged in 1973 in a surprise attack by Egypt, Syria, and Jordan. Although caught off guard and almost overwhelmed, Israel tenaciously fought on and eventually defeated its Arab enemies. This conflict precipitated a number of changes on both sides which allowed for peace negotiations to begin. The 1973 Yom Kippur War ultimately cemented Israel's existence in the mind of the Arabs and completed the establishment of the Jewish nation that had begun in 1948. "Consolidation" is the best term to describe the Israeli view toward warfare and combat. Israel began in 1948 as a patchwork of isolated and vulnerable outposts surrounded by enemies and, for the sake of its own existence, needed to consolidate its territory and construct a nation with stable, defensible borders. On the other hand Israel's Arab neighbors, which surrounded and outnumbered the small Jewish enclave, "sought to drive the Jews from Palestine" and annihilate the state of Israel from existence. (Black 2005, p.125) From 1948 to 1973 a series of conflicts erupted between the Arabs and Israelis in which Israel managed to survive overwhelming odds, expand its territory, and establish itself as a viable nation. In the years following the end of the Second World War the world was……

Palestine Conflict Most People Are

They developed a governmental form that worked to accommodate at least to some extent the cultures the conquered. However, by the time Islam had reached present-day Spain, a highly Christian and Catholic area, Europeans were alarmed by the spread of this culture and religion. Arab power had reached its peak by the 10th century. Westerners responded with the Crusades, which took place in the 11th and 12th centuries. The Crusades had both religious and economic goals. The Crusaders wanted to see the Holy Land under the control of Christians. At the same time, they were looking for a safer and more economical route to Asia, so they could trade for such things as spices and silk. During this time, while Europe was challenging Arab power from the West, Mongols were attacking from the East (Ismael, 1999). Except for Egypt, the area was racked by wave after wave of warfare (Ismael, 1999). Many Arabs see this sort of grabbing for their resources going on today over oil, and when Westerners attempt to broker peace, suspect that they want peace in the region only to assure the free flow of crude oil from the MIddle East (Ismael, 1999). Because these events brought down a great civilization, the Crusades, little more than an intriguing chapter in Western history, was part of a cataclysmic series of events in Arab history that changed their course forever, events brought because outsiders wanted rights to their lands. So while Westerners interested in the Arab-Israeli conflict may look at issues starting in 1947, or perhaps when European Jews first started migrating to Palestine…
