Lastly, he wants to get across the message that the U.S. is at war with Muslims and not Iraq, which I believe is completely untrue. The second article from The New York Observer also had a few ideas that in my eyes were wrong. First and foremost, the author seems to doubt his own opinion towards the end of the editorial by questioning his own views on the matter. I believe that if you are going to write about something you should be sure about it. The author also states that the U.S. is unable to prevail in Iraq.
As I stated earlier, the purpose of this film was to get Americans to support the war. I believe that the audience of this film was Americans who were not exactly sure if they agreed with America being involved in the war. In my opinion, this film was successful in helping Americans change their views on the war. I think that Americans saw how Rick was able to change from a selfish, cynical man who did not care about the politics happening around him, to a pro-interventionist who did his best to help the fight against the Nazis by letting Ilsa leave with Victor. Before this film I am sure that many Americans were like Rick and did not care much for politics or war, but after, I believe many changed their views and felt they needed to stand united and support the fight against the Nazis.
Arguably the role of the UN was the most important factor in the creation of Israel. In 1947 UNSCOP Was set up to investigate, and then recommend how to resolve the Palestine problem. The main recommendation was to divide Palestine, and set up both a Jewish and an Arab state, this would give the Jews 55% of the country and the Arabs 45%, this was officially accepted by the Jewish Agency, but the Arab higher committee declined it, this factor is so important because it led to the civil war a few days after the partition plan. The civil war also arguably an important factor in the creation of Israel because it helped the Jewish get more land and over 300,000 Arabs were expelled by the Jews, which meant more of the land was theirs. The civil war eventually led to the war of 1948-49 where 6 different Arab forces attacked Israel.
Tony Judt described to the New York Times that he believed the real purpose of outspoken denunciations of him and others was to stifle their harsh criticism of Israel and its treatment of the Palestinians.  "'The link between anti-Zionism and anti-Semitism is newly created,' [Tony Judt] said, adding that he fears 'the two will have become so conflated in the minds of the world' that references to anti-Semitism and the Holocaust will come to be seen as 'just a political defense of Israeli policy. '"Judt, who advocates for a binational solution to the Israel-Palestinian conflict, states that he "[doesn’t] know anyone in a respectable range of opinion who thinks Israel shouldn’t
He is the creator of Zionism. Herzl devoted his life to creating the necessary political framework to achieve his goal of an independent Jewish state. He knew that the first step to creating a Jewish homeland had to be an international Jewish institution responsible for funding and organizing the new nation. After two years of being turned down by major Jewish philanthropists who viewed him as a zealous madman, Herzl presented his plan to the Jewish people. In 1896 he wrote a pamphlet, "The Jewish State," which described his goal of creating a separate nation for the Jews.
Spinoza’s Effect on Being Jewish If you were to ask the average educated person to name the Enlightenment thinker who had the greatest influence on modern society you would probably hear the names Locke, Jefferson, Rousseau, Voltaire or Descartes. But in fact many modern philosophers will point Baruch Spinoza as the most influential member of the Enlightenment movement . Spinoza changed how people looked at God, nature and the universe. Spinoza was a proponent of liberty and democracy, while at the same he had high criticisms of religion and the clergy, who he thought possessed too much power. Because of his thoughts on religion, Spinoza was excommunicated in 1656, not by the Catholic Church where excommunication was common for so-called heretics, but by the Jewish community in Amsterdam.
Dr. King not only did he make this better but he also influenced people to speak up for themselves no matter what sex, race, or religion there is no wrong in saying what you think is wright. Hatred amongst other people just because they look different or they act different is not morally correct people should live with accept and maybe even embrace the different cultures. Even though Dr. King is dead his words and characters live on into the modern world. Today Dr. King’s decisions and speeches have affected the world of today in many ways. One of the greatest achievements was our new president Barak Obama, but his smaller achievements count too, such as the diversities in school, neighborhoods, and public areas.
Some foreign cultures just don't fit well with democracy and it's a waste of time”(Jackson 1). Jackson went on to summarize his view with a great statement, “My point is that no matter what we THINK, it's not our business to judge how another country should be run. We would have a fit if Israel were to send troops onto our soil with the intent to fix our moral decay with their policies and laws, so why do we think that it's alright to do the same to other countries? We would do more good to take our troops out of other countries
Many people believe that racial profiling should be prohibited because it is offensive to American values. Malkin disputes this and insists that, “…the ethnic activists and civil-liberties groups who object most strenuously to the use of racial, ethnic, religious, and nationality classifications during war support the use of similar classifications to ensure ‘diversity’ or ‘parity’ in peacetime.” (493). However, Iftikhar strongly disagrees and believes that, “the most disturbing legal trend in America has been the growing disparity in how American Muslims are treated under the law.” She explains how the reports of civil rights cases, a majority of which were Muslim hate crimes, have increased tremendously since the 9/11 attacks due to racial profiling. Many Muslims were accused of crimes they didn’t do and were treated awful. While Iftikhar understands that America is focused on keeping everyone happy and winning over people abroad, she strongly states in her piece that, “it is high time that the Bush administration try spreading a little American democracy here---while winning the hearts and minds of Americans by treating all people equally under the law.” (497).
He was a man of faith and faith, in my view, was a prelude to his actions. But in explaining Malcolm X, let me take not to explain him away. I understand he had been a criminal, an addict, a pimp and a prisoner; a racist and a hater. He certainly said some racist things in his life, for example: "All white people are the devil". That is obviously not true to me, even though the state of the "black" community in the 60s that my cousins grew up in may have suggested otherwise But Malcolm started getting on the right track after his return from Mecca, there his eyes were opened and he started to regret some of the sweeping racial generalizations he had made in the past.
