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.
This is a war that began with your invasion of Kuwait; this is a war that can be ended only by Iraq’s full and unconditional compliance with UN Security Council resolution 678. 2. I am writing to you now, directly, because what is at stake demands that no opportunity be lost to avoid what would be a certain calamity for the people of Iraq. I am writing, as well, because it is said by some that you do not understand just how isolated Iraq is and what Iraq faces as a result. 3.
In my opinion, the US does not follow this doctrine today. The Truman Doctrine of 1947 changed America’s view on the subject. The Truman doctrine states that the US would support free countries tries to resist oppression. America has been and is now involved in several such wars such as the wars in Iraq, Vietnam, Afghanistan, and
The creation of Israelin 1948 exposed the lack of a common ideology or strategy between the Arab countries in how to deal with the newly formed state.On the one hand Jordan had begun direct negotiations with Israel by 1949,while Syriaremained unmoved from its position of non-co-operation with Israel.  Despite the Arab League’s declarationsinsisting there was unity between the Arab countries in fighting for the Palestinian cause, Jordan was pursuing its own interests through negotiations with Israel, showing the ideological bareness of the League after the 1948 war.However, it can be argued that the creation of Israel, and the ongoing conflict, added to the strengthening of Arab nationalism among the Arab populations in the region,despite the disunity among the individual countries.The 1948 war and the creation of Israel contributed towards the Egyptian revolution in 1951 which saw
One of them is the domination by the authority of office, which showed a strong need for obedience from power (Allen, 2004). Weber thought more deeply about his legitimate authority and pointed out that there are three ideal types of it in history. None of these types exist in pure form in the real world, but they can be used as a tool to analyse political issues (Allen, 2004). Moreover, Weber classifies specific political concepts as ‘ideal types’ in order to solve the problem that political concepts are considered as things instead of the tool to understand things. Therefore, it is vital to notice that ideal types are only tools to analyse and should be regarded as how useful they are instead of

How far do you agree that the most important reasons for Arab disunity in the years 1945-79 was the self-interest of individual Arab states? Arab disunity | Other | * Arab Israeli wars:-1948 Egypt and Jordan used the war to gain land-1956 Nasser wanted more power-1967 Syria and Lebanon didn’t join the Arab forces-Camp David Egypt were kicked out-Balance could be that they all had a common cause to help Palestine * Iranian revolution-Iran Iraq war * Palestine (PLO)-desire to create the state of Palestine-Lebanese civil war | * Religious differences-Lebanese civil war-Sunni and Shai Muslims * Islamic fundamentalism-Iranian revolution * Western involvement-Camp David * The creation of Israel | the Arab disunity was caused by different factors between the years 1945-79.

Under Saddam Hussein’s rule, Iraq faced UN economic sanctions that constrained the oil industry making trade very difficult. Although these sanctions have since been lifted, civil unrest and internal economic problems since the war have continued to disrupt supplies. Iran has an elected government but its politics are strongly influenced by religious leaders. This has damaged relations between Iran and the Western world and as a result the supply of oil from this region has been restricted. Political developments in the Middle East are therefore of great importance to the energy security of the rest of the world as the region possesses most of the worlds oil and gas reserves.
It is well known that the withdrawal of Britain from Palestine exposed Zionist forces to the invading armies of Egypt, Transjordan and other Arab nations. Traditional Zionist accounts interpret Britain’s final actions in Mandate Palestine through the lens of anti-Semitism, accusing Britain of forging a secret, sinister alliance with the Arab states to wage war on young and fragile Israel. However, analysis of English, Hebrew and Arabic documents has produced an altered, revisionist theory: Britain felt that a tiny Palestinian Arab state, undoubtedly under the influence of radical leader Hajj Amin al-Husayni, could not hope to survive on its own. Thus, British policy aimed at the incorporation of the Palestinian Arab territory into Transjordan. Issue #3 is the balance of arms in the War.
Phrases such as 'in danger', 'dangerous', ' and gravest threat' indicated the idea of topos of danger and threat. 4-Topos of defense The last topos, defense, is exclusively and extensively used by Netanyahu. This topos is used to argue the right of self-defense to legitimize the violation of human rights and massacres committed by Israel in the war. Additionally, the word defense has been used six times in the speech. In other words, Netanyahu presented Palestinians as violating the security of Israel, while Israel conformed to
