The main historical events of anti-Semitism are as follows: * The crusades; Christian soldiers tried to expel Muslims from the birthplace of god as they did not believe in him many massacred/crusaded many forced to choose between baptism/death, some fled to Central/Eastern Europe suffered outbursts of violence * The black death; (Bubonic plague) spread across Europe killing 1/3 population Jews blamed for initiating epidemic hate mobs developed * Nationalism; During nationalism, Europe viewed themselves as belonging to separate nations Jews identified as aliens/ disqualified citizenship and expelled from England * Social Darwinism; those within the strongest race would ultimately survive, late 19th century Jews unaccepted/viewed as different due to their religion/birth “aliens” term anti-Semitism first appeared (excluded any possibility of Jews being assimilated into German culture common bond of humanity began to believe
Following the death of Von Rath Citizens of Germany were angered and Hitler had used this to his full advantage and stated that if any violence were to be taken out against the Jews as a result of the shooting he would not intervene. Some Nazi leaders stood back and watched incidents happen and some even took it as an order to attack the Jews; SA and SS forces were sent out to go cause trouble with the Jews and were ordered to organise demonstrations and arrest as many Jews as they can. On the 9th and 10th of November, gangs smashed up Jewish property and attacked Jews. A listed 814 shops, 171 homes and 191 synagogues were destroyed, about 100 Jews were killed. The damage of this left the night being called “The Night of Broken Glass” or Kristallnacht (Crystal Night).
How Accurate is it to Say That the Growth of Reformist Groups in The Years from 1881 were the Main Cause of the 1905 Revolution. Bloody Sunday released the social, economic and political pressure that had been building up for several years. 150,000 workers demonstrated in a peaceful protest led by Father Gapon, triggered by the recent failure in the Russo-Japanese War. It was not organised by the reformist groups. The police openly fired on the protestors, and the number of deaths is estimated to be anywhere between 200-1000 people.
Likewise an illustration of a decline in social morality was the rise of the Ku Klux Klan. Taking advantage of the fear of communism and anti-immigrants attitudes, the Ku Klux Klan used them as excuses to oppose people of other races and religions by attacking and lynching people that were not white, including the Roman Catholics, Jews, African American, and foreign-born people. Surprisingly, by 1924 the organization memberships, mostly white male persons and native-born gentile citizens, reached a huge number of 4.5 million. Fortunately, KKK’s criminal activities later led to a decrease of its power in
The Common Dissent After a thirty-year presidency, Porfiro Diaz’s centralized agrarian policies favoring the elite haciendas had caused formidable rebellions in the North and South of Mexico. Diaz established many new technologies and industries only to appeal to the greater European investors. These industries, such as mines and sugar plants, robbed the people of their land, dehumanized working conditions and cut minimum wages resulting in major dissent among the suffering middle class. By October of 1910, during Madero’s release from prison, militant rebellions led by local leaders erupted in the North and South states killing several units of Federal troops. Separated geographically, Poncho Villa in the North and Emiliano Zapata in the South contrasted in both their origin and military strategy, while
At the start of king Charles reign things were already looking odd for him because the things he chose to do where completely against parliaments plans. Parliament had to know what the king was doing before he did it but because he never told them what was happening. Parliament and Charles friendship was crumbling gradually. In 1625 Charles married Henrietta Maria, the fifteen year old daughter of Henri IV of France who was a catholic she had her own chapel and priest. Puritans and protestants started to put up posters against the church and the king in 1637 archbishop laud put the people making the posters in trial and those found guilty were severely punished .
In the name of preserving law and order in a white-dominated society, Klansmen punished newly freed blacks for a variety of reasons, including behaving in an "impudent" manner toward whites. They whipped the teachers of freedmen's schools and burnt their schoolhouses. But first and foremost, the Klan sought to do away with Republican influence in the South by terrorizing and murdering its party leaders and all those who voted for it…in outright defiance of the Republican-led federal government, Southern Democrats formed organizations that violently intimidated blacks and Republicans who tried to win political power...” It was all about change, evolving and becoming better then what the country was about, at that time. The founders of the KKK were stubborn to change; they had the mentality of supremacy, and tried by any means necessary to dominate others and deter the changes around
The peoples who did this never were charged, however, they Jehovah witnesses were charged with inciting the violence. Another act of discrimination was in 2005, when Mexicans took farmlands from 70 Jehovah witnesses’ families and gave it to other settlers. Mexico schools also fired the teachers who were Jehovah witnesses. They have been banned in 29 different countries because they are considered a threat to the public. Learning about Jehovah witnesses have made me think entirely different of them.
The organisation changed his lifestyle and behaviour dramatically. Malcolm X became very critical of Martin Luther King and openly claimed that he was being paid by the government to preach love and forgiveness by doing so, it was suggested that he was preventing black people fighting for their rights. Their contrasting opinions triggered tension between the two leaders; Malcolm X believed in self-defence which is totally different to MLK’s non-violent approach, Malcolm also began to have an involvement with two groups CORE and SNCC. However in 1965, Malcolm X was shot, 15 times at close range. This resulted in tensions between the MLK to decrease.
The KKK used brutal violence, black people were beaten, lynched, burned, shot or drowned. Employees of the Freedman’s Bureau and white northern teachers, who educated black people, were also threatened to be killed. The KKK was banned in 1872 but it continues illegally and was in fact popular. The problem was that many judges and policeman were often Klan members therefore made it difficult to stop the Klans
