Arab-Americans Term Paper

… This affiliation spawned a new wave of Arab-American identity through rap music, urban dialectical discourses, as well as poetry and writing (Salaita, 2005).

Arab-American identity, like those of other immigrant groups that have migrated to the U.S., was acculturated (Salaita, 2005). Perhaps one difference in identity building was the stage of politics and war being played out in the Arab Old World. Arab-American communities were affected by the socio-political changes involving first the Israel/Palestine conflicts, but then later on the situations in Iraq helped to shape Arab-American world views. What is unique for them is that mainstream American society favored Israel over Palestine, and then of course invaded Iraq once in the early 1990s, but then again post-9/11 (Salaita, 2005).

The Palestinian/Israeli conflict greatly influenced…. [read more]


American Foreign Policy From Three Term Paper

… I also agree with Walt's position that the U.S. is spreading itself thin globally dealing in issues that really have no direct effect on Americans. Moreover, I agree with Walt's belief that the U.S. should not reduce its military power, because choices and options are important. Furthermore, I even agree with Xinbo, concerning the hypocrisy of U.S. human rights policies and the need for perspective. However, I disagree with Xinbo's suggestion that the sharing of advancement in science and technology with the world is in the best interests of the United States.

I believe there is need for a change in U.S. foreign policy and that it should perhaps be woven from the three authors above. The United States should develop resources that would give…. [read more]


Racial Ethnic Trends for the Millennium Between Arabs and African Americans Term Paper

… Arab- and African-Americans and racial issues in the new millennium

America is the most unique nation in the world, from so many angles. First, of course, it is by far the wealthiest nation in the world: From moral and immoral, violent and nonviolent, justified and unjustified means, America has acquired massive quantities of wealth

However, amidst that wealth exists the reality that America is a melting pot. The motto of the nation brings people from all over the world to its shores seeking a better life, and often a better life is exactly what they get.

The flip side of the melting pot is the unfortunate tensions and complications that inevitably arise from putting so many people together in one place and refusing to name…. [read more]


Sub-Group Americans in Muslim Countries Thesis

… Americans in Muslim Countries

Minority Communities: The Effects and Challenges of Americans Living in Muslim Countries

Few minority groups in the United States in the past decade have received as much direct attention, both from the media and from the political and scientific communities, than Muslims. Indeed, Islamic radicalism and fundamentalism has raised many questions about the religion and its adherents -- most of whom, it should be noted, are not radical or fundamentalists -- on the global scale. Islam is also one of the fastest growing religions in the world, making this demographic one not only worthy of study, but demanding it. The focus on most of the scholarship concerning this group over the last decade, however, has dealt with the interactions and assimilation…. [read more]


American Media Representation of Islam and Terrorism Term Paper

… AMERICAN MEDIA REPRESENTATION of ISLAM & TERRORISM POST-9-11 in AMERICA: ARE THEY the ONE and the SAME?

The objective of this work is to prepare a research proposal that will reflect how the American media (print, broadcast and online) portrays Islam's connection to terrorism post 9/11 in research focusing on "When an average American audience picks up the morning paper and reads an article about terrorism on the front page - what are the first two things that pop into their minds? (1) Muslim extremists; and (2) the September 11, 2001 attacks on America and to answer the question of: "Why is this? It is the position of the researcher that this is due to the one-sidedness of the American media, where America is portrayed…. [read more]


Anti-Arab Racism Research Proposal

… Anti-Arab Racism

The objective of this work is to conduct a review of literature addressing the question of whether post-9/11 has been a significant factor in promoting popular consent for the erosion of civil liberties for all Americans? Has islamophoibia provoked people to give up their civil liberties through the reinvigoration of Anti-Arab racism?

The work of Rami El-Amine (2006) entitled: "Anti-Arab Racism, Islamophobia, and the Anti-War Movement" states that racism against Muslims and Arabs was around long before the terrorist attacks of 9-11 and that much of this racism has its basis in "Western Imperialism in the Middle East, especially Israel's colonization of Palestine." El-amine reports that the ABC-Washington Post poll of March 2006 states findings that it is the belief of people in…. [read more]


Dual in the Sun by John Brant Term Paper

… Dual in the Sun by John Brant

There's a lot more to life than sports and athletic competition in the name of glory. But when a sports-focused individual is on a roll and has either achieved fame, money, and championship level victories - or is in hot pursuit of those goals - most other aspects of that person's life and the world surrounding that life can easily become lost in a wash of bright lights and a cloud of vapor.

Meanwhile, the article "Dual in the Sun" by John Brant is an in-depth background piece ostensibly about the Boston Marathon in 1982, but that is only part of the story. A critically important portion of the article deals with the lives of the two principle…. [read more]


Different Preferences in Learning Between American and French Learners in a Multinational Corporate Setting Dissertation

… ¶ … Preferences in Learning between American and French Learners in a Multinational Corporate Setting

The way training is delivered in a corporate environment has a tremendous effect on results. This study investigates the role of culture in the learning styles of adult French and American students enrolled in online training programs at an international university. Using Kolb's learning style inventory, the learning style preferences of respondents in both cultural groups will be classified as divergers, convergers, accommodators, and assimilators, reflecting their general tendencies toward learning environments as conceptualized by Kolb (1985). The assumption is that Americans prefer to learn from action-oriented methods and are more comfortable learning from activities that are not job related, such as role plays and games, than do their French….

The United Arab Emirates' Successes and Failures in Resolving Domestic Disputes: An Evaluation of the Performance of the UAE's Social Support Centers

Domestic violence, defined as both physical and/or emotional abuse taking place in the home between members of the same domestic unit or family, remains a large problem throughout the world. It is difficult to determine the true rates of domestic violence and partner abuse that occur each year due to the fact that many lack access to any means of reporting such incidents, let lone to services that might assist them in overcoming this violence and leaving or changing the abusive relationship in such a way that the abuser is left without the power or ability to continue their abuse.

Development of Health Management System in Saudi Arabia Research Proposal

… Healthcare in Saudi Arabia

Project Title: Development of Health Management Systems in Saudi Arabia

Geopolitical Overview

Within the global healthcare model there are various expressions of appropriateness of care. In the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, for instance, healthcare has always been the purview of the government, funded at the behest of the ruling family, designed for a predominately young or middle aged population, and certainly not designed for the increasing urbanization and economic improvements that oil and natural gas have brought to the region. In addition, changing demographics in the Kingdom make it necessary to rethink the model of healthcare.

A geopolitical and cultural background of the country and comparison with the region is first provided to engage the reader in the synergism between these…. [read more]


Latin American Terrorism Issues Research Paper

… United Self-Defense Forces of Colombia (AUC)

This group of terrorist is relatively weak and less active. Very few activities have been reported by this group. It has more than 32000 members dismissed. Thus, it remains inactive as a formal group. Despite of its less activities, many old members of AUC are engaged in criminal activities mostly drug trafficking, in newly emerging criminal organizations (known as BACRIM, BandasCriminalesEmergentes). This newly emerging group has more than 3500 and less than 6000 members. To cope with this situation, Colombian government has taken multiple steps and made new laws. These laws are being implemented properly in order to generate peace in the region. One of the unique and most effective laws made in this context is the thorough and…. [read more]


Gasoline Prices -- Oil Issues Essay

… Gasoline Prices -- Oil Issues

What was Peyton Feltus referring to (in the article by Elizabeth Souder) when he said the word "shortage" conjures up "images for us older folks of the old days of the 70s…"?

What Feltus was alluding to was the 1973 Arab oil embargo -- carried out by the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) -- that had a profound impact on transportation in the U.S. And caused sharp political responses from the United States toward the Arab states. The embargo was basically a political tactic by the Muslim states to punish the U.S. And other Western countries (including the Netherlands) that were supporting Israel in the Yom Kippur War of October 1973.

To understand the background for the OPEC Oil…. [read more]


History From 1865 Essay

… Part 2: The Post-1930s

1. Immigrants and Modern Stereotype / Racial Profiling

Active prejudice existed in the pre-WW2 era, but stereotypes -- in the modern twist -- linger still today. Immigrants have long been detested and have long been accused of taking away jobs from native-born Americans, increasing the criminal population, and draining America's educational and healthcare -- as well as social benefit -- resources. Usually, however, it is illegal, rather than legal, immigrants who are mostly condemned.

Unfortunately, Islamic terrorist activities have given rise to the new stereotype of Islamaphobia where people of Muslim extraction nd Arabs Are mistreated and discriminated against particularly since the September 11th attacks. The European Monitoring Centre on Racism and Xenophobia (EUMC) (2002), for instance, reported incidents that consisted…. [read more]


21st Century American 'Democracy Term Paper

… What made these early Americans so different from 21st century ones was (1) the relatively tiny size and homogeneity of their group, and (2) their commitment to a single common cause (Tocqueville). Further, John Winthrop's "A Model of Christian Charity" (1630), originally delivered as a sermon onboard the Arbella bound for the New World, suggests how "every man might have need of the other, and from hence they might all be knit more nearly together in the bonds of brotherly affection" (p. 215). However, as America has expanded over time and space, individual citizens have become more distant from and indifferent toward one another; more spread out geographically, and perhaps too autonomous, to the point of near total self-interest.

Moreover, all of that was accurately…. [read more]


Price-Reduction of Long Haul Fixed-Line Telecommunication Service Research Proposal

… Price-Reduction of Long Haul Fixed-Line Telecommunication Service and Infrastructure in the Middle East

The expansion of telecommunications via fixed-line networks depicts a significant contemporary, credible concern, not only in the Middle East, but also in other parts of the world as interactions with the Middle East regularly occur in and outside its borders. During the thesis, the researcher argued that enhanced negotiations, deeper cultural understanding, and infrastructure expansion could contribute to reducing prices for fixed-line long haul telecommunications service procurements in the Middle East/Southwest Asia (UAE, Bahrain, Iraq, and Afghanistan).

In the mixed-method case study, the researcher explored fixed-line long haul telecommunications service procurements in the Middle East; using various data collection procedures over a sustained period of time to collect detailed information. For the…. [read more]


Israel Internal Security Case Study

… Israel Internal Security Case Study

Nature of the state

Israel is a young nation, developed following WWII, when Britain withdrew from Palestine and the United Nations partitioned a portion of it for the resettlement of displaced Jews following the war. Arab nations in the region and Palestine itself rejected the arrangement, but it was followed through with nonetheless. The arrangement developed into several costly wars in which the Israeli army was successful, with the aide of foreign backing but many deep rooted tensions have not been resolved since. The Israeli government also occupies additional lands, which were acquired through these costly wars, most notably the Gaza strip and a few other regions, though some have been returned to their nation of origin since.

Interventionism From the Perspective Case Study

… These studies serve as the foundation for this present analysis.

Other studies have shown that foreign military intervention can easily be conducted even if they are in violation of the United Nations charter and lack authorization of the Security Council (Cassese 1999). This shows that countries can and do act on their own in engaging in interventionism. The motives for doing so are what this study plans to investigate.

A number of Western countries support humanitarian interventionism but they have not yet intervened in Syria. The reality behind humanitarian interventionism is that there are clear political, geopolitical, and economical consequences to every foreign intervention. Intervention is not merely a humanitarian crusade but rather a highly explosive affair that can cripple countries' infrastructures and have global…. [read more]


Muhammad Ali in Egypt Thesis

… But they took away, for five centuries, the possibility of an independent Arab-dom, and Arab nationalists bore them considerable ill-will for it[footnoteRef:13]. The only 'Arab' state conquered by the Turks which was not in irremediable decay, was the Mamluk state of Egypt and Syria[footnoteRef:14]. The Mamluks themselves were a dynasty of Turkish slaves; and in any case they afterwards succeeded, as did all the North African provinces, in enjoying internal autonomy under Ottoman suzerainty. The claim that the caliphate had been transmitted to the Ottoman sultans was made only late in the history of the Empire. It was as Turkish rulers that they held their power, and only secondarily (if at all) as vice-regents of the Prophet. They preserved and even sharpened the distinction between…. [read more]


Racial Profiling Since 911 Term Paper

… (U.S. Racial Profiling Both Wrong and Counter-Productive, Says Amnesty) Ever since the incident of September 11, 2001 an extensive increase in the racial profiling at airports is reported especially in case of people appearing to be Muslim or of South Asian or Middle Eastern descent. (Racial Profiling: Testimony from Amnesty International USA's hearings on Racial Profiling. Victims Accounts of Racial Profiling While Traveling Through Airports) This is so acute that even some are fearful to travel with passengers appearing to be of Middle-Eastern. It has gone to such an extreme of cases that in one case a man going for the wedding of his brother in Pakistan was told to board down from his flight since the flight crew did not feel safe flying with….

… Water in the Middle East

Governments around the world have a primary concern over water availability and the Middle East and North Africa are no exception.

The paper starts by revealing the gravity of the situation by showing the present statistics surrounding the problem of water scarcity throughout the world. Thereafter, the paper highlights the importance of water in the national economy.

Lastly, the paper briefly…. [read more]


Conflict Resolution in the Middle Term Paper

… The pro-Israel camp has its own lobbies, organizations, think tanks, magazines, support groups, Internet user groups, etc. that strives hard to establish that the Arabs are wrong and they are right. The Israelis pose to be more outstanding in morality than the Arabs. Similarly the lobbies, organizations, think tanks, magazines, support groups, Internet user groups, etc. existing in the side of pro-Arab camps strives hard to establish that the Israelis are wrong and they are right. They also announce in similar fashion that they are morally more upstanding in comparison to the Israelis. Both of the groups are accusing each other labeling allegation that the other is morally deficient, the other is not acting nicely and because of the other that they are not arriving…. [read more]


International Marketing: Qatar Country Term Paper

… International Marketing: Qatar

Country Study of Qatar Today

Qatar has been ruled by the Al Thani family since the mid-1800s, but there have been some dramatic changes in the country's actual leadership in recent years. Today, Qatar has transformed itself from a poor British protectorate famed mostly for its pearls into a modern independent state that enjoys significant oil and natural gas revenues (Qatar, 2005). Reminiscent of the recent charges being level in the UN oil-for-food program, the Qatari economy was severely damaged during the last two decades of the 20th century by illegal activities by the current amir's father. In 1995, the amir's son, Amir Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, assumed the country's leadership from his father, who was in Switzerland at the time…. [read more]

Historical Islamic Faith Essay

… Islamaphobia is one of the most catching illnesses of nowadays and on the rise. However, Islamaphobia is caused by an erogenous impression of Islam where people make the mistake of mixing up Islamists with Moslems. Moslems, according to the way I see it, are the true practitioners of historical Islam that had developed throughout the generations but stayed close to religion. Islamism, on the other hand, is a politicized Islam that attempts to constrain the Islam of the Koran to a contemporary political agenda. Knowing more about historic Islam and the underpinnings of the Islamic faith can help us make a distinction between Islamism and between Islam or between Islamists and Moslems.

The following essay provides us with a brief historical background of the Islamic…. [read more]


Hamas Often When People Think Term Paper

… The International Court did rule that some of Israel's purposed wall location were beyond jurisdiction and that those areas would have to be rerouted (Jones 2009).

The Israeli courts have done everything to ensure that their government is not doing anything illegal. In fact, in the case of Mara'abe v. The Prime Minister of Israel, the Israeli Supreme Court ruled that a portion of intended fence in the northern West Bank violated international humanitarian law and ordered the government to reroute the section (Watson 2006,-page 895). This expanded on an earlier court decision, Beit Sourik Village Council v. Israel, in which the Israeli Supreme Court which also demanded rerouting of a segment of fence which was deemed in violation of humanitarian law.

Arafat's Origins and Early Life

Oslo

Clinton Camp David Summit and the "Clinton Parameters"

Arafat's Death and Legacy

Yasser Arafat has been described throughout his career, both by many detractors and supporters, as the "father of the Palestinian people." The view in Colin Shindler's A History of Modern Israel provides a more pro-Israel approach and accurately describes Arafat in all of his duplicitous glory. In this essay, the author strives to provide additional support with other portrayals of Yasser Arafat in an attempt to enhance Shindler's portrayal of the deceased leader of the PLO, Fatah and the Palestinian Authority (PA).

This admirable study faithfully retells Israel's national story, Shindler mostly concentrates on how the Jewish Commonwealth has been historically unable to fulfill…. [read more]


Foreign Policy Towards the Middle East Term Paper

… Foreign Policy Towards the Middle East

The Administration's New Middle Eastern Policy

Peace, the promise of a new United States image in the region, and greater independence from the nations that would harm us. These must be the goals of future U.S. Middle Eastern policy. Thus, the three main goals of the next administration should and must be to begin to bring the current conflict in Iraq to a successful or at least manageable political and diplomatic solution rather than a military conclusion, to facilitate new negotiations between the Israelis and Palestinians, and finally to reduce U.S. dependence on Middle Eastern oil.

Political scientist Richard Haas warns: "Iraq, traditionally a center of Arab power, will remain messy for years to come, with a weak central…. [read more]


Resist in the City? Term Paper

… People look at the expensive restaurants, cafes, clothing stores -- even the chic farmer's market of Union Square and forget that many of the students who live nearby are just struggling to 'get by.' They may have a place to stay in a dormitory and food from the cafeteria, but all of that is borrowed time -- heavily borrowed time. That is why it is so necessary that the proposed demonstration in Union Square makes the visible invisible.

As was noteworthy during the Arab Spring, the availability of online communication has facilitated the rallying of people to support common causes.[footnoteRef:4] There is also an additional advantage conveyed by the ubiquity of the Internet, namely its ability to provide structure and meaning to protests.

Iraq Exit Strategy Term Paper

… ¶ … Exit Strategy of American Troops From Iraq

Proposal for an Orderly, Organized Withdrawal of Forces

non-partisan consensus has been reached amongst the American leadership, including President George H.W. Bush, wherein declarations have been publicly made declaring the present direction of American military troops in the country of Iraq is a direction which would better serve Americans and Iraqis through a change in that present course of direction. As such, with the interests of both countries in mind, and with recognition of, and in continued support for the presently seated and democratically elected government in the country of Iraq; the following "New Direction for American Troops In Iraq," is created and offered to the non-partisan American leadership (consisting of all democratically elected and currently….

US War on Terrorism Term Paper

… U.S. war on terrorism

The present paper focuses on the motives for the change in attitude of the international community after the U.S.-led invasion in Iraq.

The central point of the paper is the assumption that, after the war in Afghanistan, the U.S. motivated its military actions in Iraq by the existing breach of human rights conventions. Although there was a general belief that the people of Iraq were living under severe state oppression, there are arguments that the salvation of the Iraqi people was used as a mere pretext for the U.S.'s secret motives. The violent air attacks over Baghdad and the loss of civilian lives, the Abu Ghraib scandal and the results of the Commission for WMD revealing the lack of information regarding…. [read more]
