… Political/Government Assessment

There is no constitution that is followed in Israel.

Israel's Celebrated Prophets Research Paper

… 1, 53.3). These lines suggest that the individual will suffer for the transgressions of the Israelites, in order for them to receive the forgiveness. The theme of suffering continues, "he carried [their] diseases… He was wounded for [their] transgressions, bruised for [their] iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that made [them] whole, and by his stripes [they] are healed" and "the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of [them] all" (Isaiah 53.4-5, 53.6). The Israelites believed this to mean that salvation, redemption, and spiritual renewal would be fulfilled through an individual's life, suffering, and death. Furthermore, these promises would have been believed to be delivered at no cost to those who want it, as expressed in the metaphor, "everyone who thirsts, come to the…. [read more]

Playwright Israel Zangwill Is United Essay

… This is fascinating because while Muslim immigrants are deeply diverse of their national and ethnic backgrounds, hailing from as far east as Indonesia to as far west as Morocco, their experience especially in view of the events in recent memory has given them a special sense of unity and formed a superset of ethnicity. The broader Islamic culture militates against time honored American traditions and cultural icons. There is no alcohol involved. Muslims do not even eat the same meat as Americans following instead the Kosher traditions of their Semitic Jewish brethren. Pork is a big no!

Isaiah 58 Term Paper

… Isaiah 58 is a warning from God to his people. The chapter fits with the message contained in the entire second half of Isaiah (40-66). God expresses his displeasure with his children and gives them specific instructions that he wishes to be followed in order to return to his good graces.

Isaiah 57 3 13 Thesis

… Isaiah 57 can be divided into three sections, according to the audience. The chapter addresses the righteous and those who have fallen into idolatry. The chapter opens with a message to the righteous, comforting them that they will have peace, while those that have fallen from righteousness will suffer and perish.

Prophets Old Testament Term Paper

… Prophets

Abraham Heschel passionately challenged Christians, as well as Jews to become partners with God in creating a compassionate and just world. His dedication to social justice and confidence that he spoke for God to an unwise people were the same motivations that the ancient prophets felt. As he knew God to be just and loving, so must His people be. He marched with Martin Luther King, Jr. And led in the anti-War movement during the Vietnam era. He constantly called for "spiritual audacity and social justice" in a culture that blindly followed leaders who sought war and advocated violence. His upbringing in Poland and his deportation from it by the Nazis gave him insight into the consequences of impious domination and hatred, leading him…. [read more]

Prophet Isaiah Term Paper

… He often brought the words of God to the people, and warned them the Assyrians were the messengers of God, coming against Israel because of their worship of pagan gods, and their sins.

"Because this people has rejected the gently flowing waters of Shiloah and rejoices over Rezin and the son of Remaliah, therefore the Lord is about to bring against them the mighty floodwaters of the River -- the king of Assyria with all his pomp. It will overflow all its channels, run over all its banks" (Isaiah 8:6-7).

Eventually, the Israelites fall to Babylon, and Isaiah's prophecies come true. When the people return to their reverence of God, he releases them from their bondage and they return to their fulfilling way of life.…. [read more]

… ¶ … Israel's Security Policies Relating to the Building of the Wall

The problem is terrorism or rather in general terms, the lack of security for the state of Israel. Since its inception in 1948, the Jewish state has been subjected to numerous attacks from its Arab neighbors, each of which has, as its stated aim, the destruction of the state of Israel. Winning independence in 1948, after a bitter fight, it would be forced time and again to fight for its existence. Israel's reaction to the security problem over the years has been to build a series of fixed structures or walls to keep its enemies out. These structures have done more to increase the security of the State of Israel, than any other…. [read more]

Major Prophets Term Paper

… ¶ … Prophets

In speech we often use terms "sovereign" and "sovereignty" in reference to politics, as we associate them with power, authority and rulership. In King James Version of Bible these words are never used. Today word "sovereignty" is used to show power and almightiness of God. In Webster dictionary it is defined as "above or superior to all others; chief, greatest, supreme; supreme in power, rank or authority." It says sovereignty is "the state or quality of being sovereign; the status, dominion, rule or power of a sovereign; supreme and independent political authority."

Future of a Place Strangling Term Paper

… ¶ … Future of a Place Strangling in Its Past

When one reads or watches news coverage of the Middle East, one can all to easily come away with the sense that there is nothing that can be done to ameliorate the situation there. It often seems as if the earth has somehow shifted underneath the region and the Israelis and the Arabs were inhabiting the territory of Ancient Greece and the players -- the ultra-Orthodox Israeli settlers determined to push the borders of their nation ever-farther outward, the Holocaust-deniers, the dispossessed Palestinians, the state of Israel as the lone democracy in the area, Saudi billionaires disbursing their money -- are trapped in a play by Euripides or Sophocles.

As this paper explores, this play…. [read more]

Israel's Religious System at the Time of Christ Research Paper

… Israel at the Time of Christ

In order to understand the life of Jesus, it is important to understand the circumstances in which he grew up. So many times the focus is on Jesus, the God, but his humanity was as critical as his divinity, perhaps even more so because it was his humanity that made his self-sacrifice such a significant factor. Divine, Jesus is universal and can be accessed by anyone, which is a wonderful feature for a deity. "A universalized Jesus, on the other hand, is always in danger of losing the limitations and concreteness of his actual existence; he loses his identification with our lives in the world today. Jesus lived, but he often seemed to live only as a theory in…. [read more]

George W. Bush Administration Policy on Syria Essay

… Syria

An Analysis of the U.S.-Syrian Conflict

This paper will analyze the G.W. Bush Administration's justification for conflict with Syria and show how the disparate reasons of internal organs within the White House and those offered to the public by way of the national press suggest that an ulterior motive much broader in scope and ideological in nature was (and is) actually the basis for justification. In doing so, this paper will utilize Conflict Theory to help bring into perspective the opposing rationales that are presented throughout the analysis.

The Bush Administration had very clear reasons for initiating conflict with Syria, outlined by such neo-conservative think tanks as the Project for the New American Century (PNAC) (members of which were highly placed in the Administration…. [read more]

Separating Religion from National Identity: Interview with Avraham B. Yehoshua."

Palestine - Israel Journal of Politics, Economics, and Culture

When researching the Middle East, one of the most important concepts to question is the idea of 'identity.' The state of Israel is based upon the commonly shared Jewish identity, religion, and history of all of its citizens. However, its notions of citizenship and identity extend far beyond its physical borders. Everyone who is Jewish is potentially a citizen of Israel. This sense of citizenship encompasses many different individuals within its definition, including people of different races, ethnic groups, and levels of religiosity. The state of Israel illustrates one of the paradoxes of the region. Every Middle Eastern person has intense tribal loyalties, not…. [read more]

Arafat's Origins and Early Life


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]

The Road Map for Peace was an agreement designed by America, EU, UN and Russia. All the countries agreed for the formation of an independent state of Palestine. It was the first one in which the country would get the status of being a separate state. The planned objectives were for both countries to end violence and live in harmony with each other.

Amos Hosea Exploring Ways Message Essay

… "On Jeroboam's death, Israel fell into near anarchy as almost everyking was assassinated by his successor. This, combined with the rise ofan invigorated Assyria under Tiglath Pileser III (745-727 B.C.) and hissuccessors Shalmanesar V (727-722 B.C.) and Sargon II (722-705 B.C.),sealed the fate of Israel" (Garret 1993, p. 2).

Similar to Amos, Hosea is principally recognized for how he described himself, as there is little to no outside information relating to him. Amos focused on prophesying in regard to the southern part of Israel while Hosea concentrated on the north. Even with this, they both saw similar attitudes in Israelites and realized that a period of great suffering would begin. It is difficult to determine the exact period that Hosea lived in, as he related…. [read more]

… Gilgamesh and Isaiah - Views on Life

In the Epic of Gilgamesh, written circa 1700 B.C.E. And discovered in the ruins of Nineveh in 1853, the view on life is basically centered on civilization itself, meaning that man, through "temperance, wisdom and piety... learns to rule himself and therefore his people" (Mitchell, 2004, p. 7). Gilgamesh, the main character in this epic, sees the world around him as a very mysterious place filled with much danger and personal challenges. His journey, composed of various adventures with the goal being to defeat the forces of evil in the world, leads to "a spiritual transformation, a sense of gratitude, humility and deepened trust in the intelligence of the universe" (Mitchell, 2004, pps. 51-52). Thus, life is replete…. [read more]

Bible Hosea Amos Isaiah Essay

… Bible-Hosea, Amos, Isaiah

Hosea, Amos, Isaiah

There are various figures of speech that are used by Hosea in the book of Hosea that are geared towards portraying God in a supreme and superior manner than man himself. Most of these figures of speech are repeated throughout the book of Hosea and are used with specific purposes, some of which overlap. For instance, in Hosea 11:10, there is a reference to God as the lion that roars and the people of Israel hence should follow Him,"… They will follow the LORD; he will roar like a lion. When he roars, his children will come trembling from the west…" (NIV). This verse uses the figure of speech roar like a lion to invoke obedience and supplication among…. [read more]

Bandits, Prophets, and Messiahs the Scholars Richard Book Report

… Bandits, Prophets, And Messiahs

The scholars Richard a. Horsley and John S. Hansen entitled their book on ancient, Roman-occupied Israel Bandits, Prophets, and Messiahs. and, one could add as a kind of 'punch line' to the apparent extremity of these roles in the Wild, Wild Ancient Near East -- those figures are just the good guys in Horsley and Hansen's portrayal of the Romans in Israel! But all humor aside, Horsley and Hansen suggest that the world of ancient Israel was a considerably more socially complex society than is portrayed in the texts of the Bible. It was more than a world of rich and poor, of faithless and faithful, as is often portrayed, even in the work of Biblical scholars of this period of…. [read more]

Idolatry Social Injustice and Religious Ritualism in the Old Testament Essay

… The second practical application from these teachings is that God desires His people to remain faithful to Him. This implies that out worship should be exclusively to God since deviating from worshipping God has undeniable consequences. Third, it is important for believers to follow God's commands and live within the confines of His will since it's the premise for exclusive worship of God. Finally, the teachings show that failure to worship God is the root cause of other evils such as religious ritualism and social injustices. Therefore, for today's Christians worshipping God is the ultimate reason for living and avoiding His wrath.
In conclusion, the prophetic books in the Old Testament provide practical guidelines for living a godly life. Through these books, major and minor…. [read more]

Like other areas of the world, the Middle East is today very much a product of colonialism. Even though the Middle Eastern nations of Palestine, Egypt, Jordan, and Iran have long been a patrimonial society, that is, having inherited its Islamic tradition from the Prophet Muhammad; Britain nonetheless colonized these nation states and imposed its imperialism upon the citizens of these Islamic nations. The individual Arab states, having in common Islam, stood as independent states; that is, they had separate governments and their ethnic mix of their populations differed. When Britain colonized these countries, it was akin to force feeding Western culture to a society that had no taste for the culture, choosing instead, as would any…. [read more]

… In the south it is important to remember that the League did not always have influence but it tried to do so without ceasing, frequently depending upon its own internal evolutionary strife and who its power brokers were at any given time.

Intermittent clashes took place along the frontier in 1954. The leader of the north (San'a) signed a tripartite military alliance with Saudi Arabia and Egypt on 24 April 1956 (Jidda Pact) and, in 1958, federated with the United Arab Republic (the federation was called the United Arab States).

Victims Become the Aggressors Essay

… These individuals must daily endure militaristic blockages, refusales to see family, strip searches, inexplecable delays and outright refusals of entry, substandard housing, and a level of pscyhological subjugation that would demean even the strongest culture. These people have no semblance of self-determination and, in some definitions, are treated as prisoners rather than citizens (Halwani and Kapitan).

The Jewish State, and the Jewish press, has rationalized itself as the victim for so long that "the stage in which superior virtue is attributed to the oppressed is transient and unstable" (Russell 74). This logic that then supports their mistreatment of others is backwards, but somehow tolerated on the world stage. What is likely a combination of cultural guilt from the West for at least tacitly refusing to…. [read more]
