The Treaty of Versailles created an underlying bitterness , the Germans believe that they don’t deserve such the blame of war, even some believe they still have the power to fight back and win again. This created deep irritation about the First World War. In such desperate circumstance, people demand changes and a leader who can get them though the hardness, and to which Hitler’s viciousness and expansionism appealed, so they gave him support. Also, After the Wall Street Crash of 1929, unemployment grew, people are poor and starving on street, In the crisis, people wanted someone to blame, and looked to extreme solutions – Hitler offered them scapegoat(Jews and November criminals) Secondly, Hitler was an outspoken politician and passionate speaker, which had undoubted ability for public speaking and an understanding of ordinary peoples desires and capture voters and supporters.

A major difference between the methods used by the Achaemenid Empire and the Han Dynasty would be the way they handled foreign issues. In the Achaemenid Empire, the rulers respected the values and traditions of the people they ruled. Cyrus and Darius, past rulers of the Achaemenid Empire, followed a policy of toleration to ensure that the people of the empire would not rebel against them and create internal problems. For example, in Mesopotamia, rulers depicted themselves as legitimate Babylonian rulers rather than Persian conquerors. Darius also gained the favor and praise of many Jews for allowing them to return to Jerusalem and rebuilding a temple destroyed by Babylonian conquerors in 587 B.C.E.
He references the Sinai covenant because of the mutual responsibilities the two shared with one another. Amos elaborated on the act that the curses attached to the covenant would be fulfilled.

This is because it is known at that time, Christians and Jews disliked one another, there was much prejudice against Jews because of their religion. Moreover, their differing beliefs created a barrier between the two communities. Jews were badly mistreated by Christians, discrimination and Anti-Semitism were believed to be the correct thing to do, consequently the Elizabethan audience agreed with it. As mentioned, Shylock was a moneylender, the Elizabethans hated the traditional Jewish profession of usury, (which was the lending of money with interest) as this was against Christian beliefs. It should be noted that Jews were often forbidden to own land or trade therefore logically the only occupation that was open to them was moneylending.
Semantics or Substance: Case 229 The nations within the borders of the Middle East are no strangers to violent conflicts. They have been dealing with conflict since before the crusades, so it should come as no surprise that a tremendous amount of political discord has been aimed towards pacifying the region. With the history of hostility and the abundance of certain resources (oil) in the Middle East, it has been one of the primary interests of western nations to try and build a sustainable peace within the region. One of the issues at the heart of these Middle Eastern conflicts is the creation of Israel after WWII in 1947. The UN backed Resolution 181 partitioned Palestine and effectively left the Palestinian people without a homeland after Israel declared its independence.

Schindler was originally seen as a selfish entrepeneur with a love of luxury and someone who thrived off the profits of slave labour during WW2. His pot factory, however, soon became a haven for jews as Schindler collected them from labour camps, mostly in poland. As Schindler went to the labour camps he would become witness to many brutal shootings of innocent and underserving jews. As the holocaust worsened Schindler heard more horrific stories which he could no longer ignore and quickly wrote up a list with the help of his financial advisor, an intelligent jew, Hzak Stern. With the names of hundreds of jews, Shindler took the list to the commandant of the labour camp and
There were 12 tribes of Arabs divided between Aws and Khazraj and ten Jewish tribes including Banu Nazeer, Banu Quraiza and Bani Qainuqa. The continuous state of anarchy in Madinah eventually forced the residents to seek options for peace. They agreed to make a prominent tribal chief, Abdullah ibn Ubay bin Salool, their king so that peace and harmony could be achieved. Around this time, Prophet Muhammad (SAW) arrived in Madinah and the tide turned against Abdullah bin Ubay. Since the Prophet was viewed as a respectable, honest and trustworthy person, he was requested to head the soon to be city-state of Madinah.
There are many successes and failures of self-determination in the Middle East in the early twentieth century. In the analysis of the documents some successes might be that writers are asking for a home for the Zion Jewish people, the Ottoman Empire, and Syria. Failures might be the request for guardianship of the people to be entrusted to more advanced nations. Another failure might be that the General Syrian Congress opposed the creation of a Jewish commonwealth inside their borders, and also opposed any migration of such peoples into their country. Looking at the two maps ([doc.1], [doc.6]) I can see some successes and some failure.
