The Arab-Israeli Conflict (Causes and Consequences)

The Gaza conflict is not a priority for neighbouring Arab states in the way that it once might have been. Although they have always viewed it through the prism of their own concerns, this is now more obvious than before. Witness Bashar al-Assad’s comment on the war on 16 July, in which he junked Hamas, in effect, by distinguishing “between real resistance fighters, which we support, and amateurs who wear the mask of resistance according to their interests in order to improve their image or to consecrate their authority” The Arab-Israeli Six-Day War (Perspectives on Modern World History) Has anyone had any movement on this since the Skype interviews? 1/29 I heard from a friend at uva that this job went to a uva alum.

Both of these states were ruled by a local governor supported by a French adviser Saddam Hussein's Iraq (Dictatorships) First, the region's aridity has left it especially vulnerable to swings in local and global climate. As climatologists and historians have discovered, using both historical documents and physical proxies such as speleothems and tree rings, the Middle East has witnessed recurring episodes of extreme and variable climate, often with serious consequences for human populations. 27 For instance, archaeologists continue to debate the role of early Holocene climate fluctuations in the Neolithic Revolution and the spread of agriculture; 28 and a shift to more arid conditions has been implicated in the rise of the first urban societies in the Nile Valley and Mesopotamia. 29 Around 2200BC, a massive drought ushered in Egypt's First Intermediate Period and wiped out agricultural settlements along the upper Euphrates. 30 Although the evidence is less clear, unusual climatic conditions may have played a role in crises of the Late Bronze Age (~1100BC), 31 the later eastern Roman Empire (~250 AD), 32 and especially in mid-sixth-century Byzantium, where volcanic activity may have created anomalous cold and dry fogs that destroyed harvests. 33 Global cooling in the fourteenth and late sixteenth to seventeenth centuries associated with the Little Ice Age brought periods of highly variable weather, including extreme winters and alternating floods and droughts The Search for Weapons Of Mass Destruction in Iraq (The Library of Weapons of Mass Destruction)
