Understanding the Modern Middle East

...Understanding the Modern Middle East What have I learned this semester about the modern Middle East? First I must start with the conflict between Israeli and Palestinian conflict as well as my understanding of what a modern nationalism is and the advocacy toward the Middle Eastern region. In order to truly understand the nation states one must have knowledge about modernity. Modernity which seeks accuracy and representation is a hybrid of nature and culture differences. (Lecture 1/26) History assists us with defining modernity because history is the hybridization of current, past and future, which is the “unknown known”. We can tell the future because of the past, history has its way of repeating itself. The past is what we study, historiography. Modernity also goes hand in hand with control the surround regions, relationships and objects tell which regions have the control over the nation-states. Modernity aids economics and provides the particulars of the evolution of history. (Lecture 2/1) Politics are central to history. Geography matters, it is important to the evolution of history. A religion is traditional and provides prologue. The role of ideology plays a huge part in my understanding of the modern Middle East. Saddam Hussain wanted a secularized government. The issue with his ideology is that secularism is modern, however religion is traditional. Palenstine historically a struggled with existed between secular and theocratic values. Secularism clashes......

...mess with them or maybe we should just leave them alone. America got the results they wanted, defeat Japan, save American life's and put fear into the world with our capability’s. It also showed the world we feared know one and were not afraid to use this weapon. Chapter 15 Why is terrorism now intimately connected to the Middle East? 9/11 and several other terrorist acts around the world have been connected to terrorist groups with ties to the middle east. Yes there are terrorist groups in every country, but they have not had the impact on the world as the groups in the middle east. The followers of these terrorist groups do not believe what they are doing is wrong or evil, they feel they are doing this in the name of there god. With the religious beliefs of the people in the middle east being strong and feeling that they have been wronged by every one that is not Muslim they feel they must strike out against the enemy. They have no fear to die for there cause and do not care who they kill or hurt to achieve this goal. There are several violent terrorist groups in the middle east with Al Qaeda being the most known, they have been linked to many bombings and killings around the world, with the 9/11 attacks on America being the biggest. These groups are a danger to the world not just because of the attacks they can do, but if they were to get control of a country that has a nuclear weapon they would not hesitate......

Middle East

...Middle East DBQ By: Tracey Smith There were many wars against Israel. The most famous one is the war of 1948. The war followed the creation of the nation-state of Israel in 1948 as the effect of colonialism in the Middle East. There are many different aspects of the war like the beginning of the war, the Balfour Declaration and the United Nations Partition Plan. The reason why the Israeli-Arab war started was because of the ongoing and complicated conflict between the 'Palestinians' and the Zionist-Jews. Zionism was a theology that was created in the late 1800's in Europe where they believed that the Jews should 'return' to their 'homeland' which was Jerusalem; they also believed it’s their Homeland because God promised them Jerusalem in the Torah. They still believe it’s their Homeland because they had the empire 3,000 years ago. Throughout the Middle East, the Muslims invited the Jews to come into Jerusalem after they were kicked out by the Romans many years before during Islamic rule. The Ottoman Empire, which was Islamic, built temples where the Jews prayed for the Muslim, Christian and Jewish warriors who fought and are fighting for the Ottoman Empire. There were people who were living in the area, who call themselves Palestinians; Palestinians were ruled by the Ottoman Empire, just like Egypt, Syria, Jordan, Lebanon etc. The Palestinians lived in the land for hundreds of years, building, trading and more. The Jews in Europe began to immigrate......

Water Shortage in Middle East

Throughout most of the Middle East region rainfall is irregular and the rainy season is very short. The World Bank reports that this area (including North Africa) has 5% of the world’s population, but only 1% of the world’s water. Droughts have been occurring more frequently and lasting longer, warning of a bleaker future. Man himself has not helped the situation. The rivers in the Middle East are being diverted, dammed, aquifers are being drained and polluted by pesticides and sea salt, and even marshes are drying up due to over-pumping. The countries that do have access to the precious few water sources do not conserve it, preserve it, nor can they agree on how to manage and share the water fairly. The need for water is not only for human consumption, but it is also vital in order to sustain agriculture. A nation that is unable to produce enough water and thus, food, for their own people is reliant on other nations to provide for them. This dependence can give rise to suspicion and conflict, which unsurprisingly has plagued this area of the world for centuries. The......

Middle East

...Making things worse in the Middle East Over the past few months, the Middle East has become an even more violent place than usual. Iraq is now once again home to one of the most bloody civil wars in the world, after Syria of course, which is the worst. Watching these horrors unfold, many in the United States are convinced that this is Washington’s fault or that, at the very least, the Obama administration’s “passive” approach toward the region has allowed instability to build. In fact, the last thing the region needs is more U.S. intervention. The Middle East is in the midst of a sectarian struggle, like those between Catholics and Protestants in Europe in the age of the Reformation. These tensions are rooted in history and politics and will not easily go away. Three factors have led us to this state of affairs. First, the structure of Middle Eastern states. The modern Middle East was created by the colonial powers at the end of World War I. The states the British and French created, often with little forethought, were composed of disparate groups that had no history of being governed as one entity. Iraq, for example, was formed by putting together three Ottoman provinces that had little in common. The colonial powers often chose a set of rulers who came from a minority group. (It was a cunning strategy. A minority regime always needs the help of some outside force to rule.) Thus the French, when facing a nationalist insurgency in Syria in the 1930s and 1940s,......

...Chapter 1 Managerial Accounting and the Business Environment Solutions to Questions 1-1 Managerial accounting is concerned with providing information to managers for use within the organization. Financial accounting is concerned with providing information to stockholders, creditors, and others outside of the organization. 1-2 Essentially, managers carry out three major activities in an organization: planning, directing and motivating, and controlling. All three activities involve decision making. 1-3 The Planning and Control Cycle involves formulating plans, implementing plans, measuring performance, and evaluating differences between planned and actual performance. 1-4 A line position is directly related to the achievement of the basic objectives of the organization. A staff position is not directly related to the achievement of those objectives; rather, it is supportive, providing services and assistance to other parts of the organization. 1-5 In contrast to financial accounting, managerial accounting: (1) focuses on the needs of the manager; (2) places more emphasis on the future; (3) emphasizes relevance and flexibility, rather than precision; (4) emphasizes the segments of an organization; (5) is not governed by GAAP; and (6) is not mandatory. 1-6 A number of benefits accrue from reduced setup time. First, reduced setup time allows a company to produce in smaller batches, which in turn reduces the level of inventories. Second, reduced setup time allows a company to......

East of Eden

...In John Steinbeck’s novel East of Eden, there is a reoccurring theme of good v evil that appears in all of the characters in this novel. Steinbeck believes that the story of good v evil is the only story in this world that all people struggle with and have to come to a conclusion about. All people will be faced with the final questions; was their life good or bad? Will people remember them as a good person or a bad person? Will their legacy live on or die with them? This struggle is fought by every generation who has to face the same ancient questions time and time again. Steinbeck believes that humans never have and never will learn from the past and overcome this but will continue to fight this battle for all eternity. The theme of good v evil is not of them as polar opposites but as the struggle between them. Every character in this novel struggles with this but some of them give up and decide to go completely one way or another. “But the Hebrew word, the word timshel— ‘Thou mayest’— that gives a choice. It might be the most important word in the world. That says the way is open. That throws it right back on man. For if ‘Thou mayest’— it is also true that ‘Thou mayest not’” (Steinbeck 303). All the characters in this novel that believe in thou mayest struggle the most with good and evil because they know there is a choice and they can choose to go one way or the other. They do not just have to go one way because they think it is in their genes or because they are being......

Down East

...ONLINE CASE Down East Spud Busters Down East Spud Busters is part of a conglomerate that represents the potato growers of eastern Canada and northern Maine and that also oversees the collection, processing, and distribution of potatoes and potato products. For many years, the industry functioned as a local cooperative. The cooperative was simply a collection center where potatoes were weighed and received, washed and graded, bagged and distributed. Potatoes were the only product. Potatoes were distributed in a variety of bag sizes and weights and were also sold loosely in large bins. The first phase of Down East Spud Busters’ strategic plan resulted in the building of a large manufacturing plant in northern Maine with a focus on value-added products. The major strategy is to process higher-value potato products. Those products include a frozen division line (French fries, home fries, gourmet stuffed potatoes, flavored potato skins, and so on), a dried-food division line (instant mashed potatoes, freeze-dried potatoes, potato pancake mix, and so on), and the traditional potato line (bagged potatoes, loose potatoes, microwave singles, baby potatoes, and so on). The corporate group figures that it can triple sales revenues from the existing yield of potatoes. The second phase of Down East Spud Busters’ strategic plan calls for a nationwide sales and distribution program. A gigantic market in retail food sales has gone untouched by this group of growers...

East of Eden

...Lee was the most stable character in East of Eden, it is difficult to explain how he was swayed or pulled by the forces of good and evil. There was certainly both good surrounding him and evil surrounding him, but Lee was such a genuine person, that there is no telling how exactly these forces acted upon him. Lee was always a servant to Adam, who views himself as inherently good, actually imposed the most wrongdoings out of all the characters (besides Cathy). Cathy really did not phase Lee or try to pull him in any directions because she, described by the narrator, was a “monster” who “was not like other people,” (72). Lee had acknowledged that there was something amiss about Cathy when he spoke with Samuel Hamilton, but Cathy only affected his life through those around him. The fact that she abandoned Adam and the twins forced Lee to take on the role of not only the twins mother, but their father as well. Adam is the type of man who brings others down with him and while he was never able to bring Lee down, it is obvious that Lee feels slightly used, despite his being a servant, “’I’ll lay aside my Oriental manner. I’m getting old and cantankerous. I am growing impatient. Haven’t you heard of all Chinese servants that when they get old they remain loyal but they turn mean?’” (373). Lee had always offered up his advice for Adam on the whim and by the beginning of their elderly years, Lee seems to become colder and less willing to coddle those around him. Adam Trask is by no......

Look East Policy

...Vol. 3, Issue 3 January 2012 India’s ‘Look East’ and America’s ‘Asia Pivot’: Converging Interests March 2013 What’s in a name? Asia-Pacific or Indo-Pacific? In a speech to the Indian parliament in 2007, Shinzo Abe, the then-prime minister of Japan, became one of the first Asian leaders to call attention to a dawning geopolitical reality: “We are now at a point at which the Confluence of the Two Seas is coming into being…The Pacific and the Indian Oceans are bringing about a dynamic coupling as seas of freedom and of prosperity. A ‘broader Asia’ that (breaks down) geographical boundaries is beginning to take on a distinct form.” Abe was a little ahead of his time in acknowledging the “distinct form” of the IndoPacific region. Many believe that day has now arrived. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton used the term in her seminal 2011 Foreign Policy article “America’s Pacific Century.” More recently, India’s ambassador to the United States and former foreign secretary, Nirupama Rao, made the case for the Indo-Pacific in a speech at Brown University: “There is a seamless stretch of oceanic space that links the Indian and Pacific Oceans. The earlier concept of the Asia-Pacific had sought to exclude India— today the term Indo-Pacific encompasses the subcontinent as an integral part of this eastern world. We are glad that the mental map of the Asia Pacific has changed and that the center of gravity has moved westward to include India…The task before us is to concretely......

The Future of the Middle East

...The Future of the Middle East We often think of the Middle East as a volatile region, but for a time experts saw the region as relatively stable. Entrenched authoritarian regimes were seen as pillars of the region that rested on their coercive apparatus as well as rentierism to maintain their rule. Thus, it came as a shock to experts when the Arab Spring bulldozed regimes that had been in power for as long as forty years. The hope of the Arab Spring was to eradicate the despotic rulers of the Middle East and replace them with democratic institutions. However, this hope has not been realized as civil war, failures of newly democratic institutions and unscathed monarchies continue to plague the region. Still, the Arab Spring is in its infant stage. The outcomes in Egypt, Tunisia, Libya and Syria remain to be seen while it appears that the monarchies of the region are stronger than ever. The future of the Middle East will be divided between the monarchies and the republics. The monarchies will most likely keep the status quo (with the help of the United States) while the republics will shape the future of democracy in the region. While it is impossible to predict the future of the Middle East due to a number of factors including the Arab-Israeli and Kurdish conflicts and the drying of oil wells, most experts on the Middle East would agree with the notion that monarchies will continue to remain unscathed in comparison to their non-monarchical neighbors. However, these same......

The East

...My Lord Your Lordship was pleased, the other day, to intimate, that you would willingly know my opinion, in general, of the East-India trade; whether it is hurtful, or beneficial to this nation? and my thoughts, concerning the bill, for prohibiting the wearing all East-India and Persia wrought silks, bengals, and dyed, printed, or stained callicoes. What has occurred to my observation in these two points, I shall offer with great sincerity, having no interest, or engagement, to sway me, in the questions, one way or other. But, before I begin, I must beg leave to say, I am very glad to see your lordship bend your excellent wit, and right understanding, to inquiries of this nature. For nothing can be more important to a nobleman, than a true knowledge of the manufactures, trade, wealth, and strength of his country: nor can your eloquence be any way more usefully employed, than in discoursing skilfully upon this subject, in that great assembly of which you are so much an ornament. Richlieu has left behind him an evidence how much he made these matters his care and study: which, however neglected by the ministers of the present age, are notwithstanding the only foundation of a solid and lasting greatness. For who can give a prince sound advice, and under him steer the people rightly and well, either in peace or in war, that is ignorant of the posture, condition, and interest of the country where he lives? Is there any thing in the world, that should be more thought...

Middle East Policy

...Transitioning Middle Eastern Environments For many decades the Middle East region dealt with power struggles, badly drawn borders, and the Arab-Israeli conflict or Israeli-Palestinian conflict. These examples are just some of what plagues the region and attests to their continued unstableness. The Middle East will undoubtedly remain unstable now and through the near future as it tries to rewrite constitutions, call for reforms, and is engaged in ongoing protests. Regardless, building a stable economic power and government is not one simple solution and takes time. As some nations strive for liberal democracies or constitutional monarchies, there must be political pluralism and with that secularism or at least pseudo-secularism. All things equal, the U.S. foreign policy must see a change in its promotion— a different, new way to deal with the Middle East as a whole and the diverse specific countries. There is no question as to whether conflict will arise in other countries within the Middle East, we know it will, but how the U.S. chooses to position itself in the fight includes stability and democracy on the overall position and relationships and development in terms of specific countries. This paper explains steps that could be taken in forming a U.S. foreign policy in the emerging Middle East region. Some people educated or not about foreign affairs are pushing for the U.S. to take action and use the Middle East crises as an advantage. They want to use this time as......

Rip East Side: the Gentrification of East Austin

...For all geographical purposes East Austin is defined as the community south of Airport Boulevard, and north of the Colorado River, west of Hwy-183, and east of I-35. In my opinion, East Austin is defined as home. It is where most of my family either lives or comes from. To me East Austin was the best place on earth. In recent years, this portion of Austin has been completely transformed into something else. Where in the past mom and pop tire shops and restaurants have existed are now micro-breweries and indie art studios. Not only are businesses being affected, but so are the residents of East Austin. The property taxes of lower income Hispanic and Black families are being raised at such an astronomical rates that families are being bought out of their home for below market price and forced to leave their communities. Most families can only afford to move to South Austin; which has been known historically for a high crime rate. It is this kind of passive aggressive change to the city that is hurting the livelihood of its underprivileged citizens. It all began with the City Plan of 1928; a plan that essentially segregated individuals of color from the rest of the City of Austin. City ordinances like this one were common practices of cities in the South. This was a quick, easy, and legal way to segregate entire demographics of people to entire portions of the city.1 The actual Plan of 1928 specified that one of the primary goals of this initiative was to establish a......
