The events of 9/11 left terror in the minds of Americans. Unfortunately it also left a sour idea in many that Muslim people are all prone to violence and are "terrorists". Constant discrimination has left fear in many Muslim Americans that has even driven them to try to remain unseen by anyone else. During WW1, German Americans faced this kind of discrimination as well. At an estimated 6 million people, Islam is the largest non-Christian religion in the US (Barrett, Paul, M.;washingtonpost.com). Even with this large amount, only about half of adults in the United States feel that Muslims face discrimination. In addition to that, around one-third believe that Islam encourages violence (Moore, Jina; csmonitor.com). Kareem Shora, the national executive director of the Arab-American Anti-Discrimination Committee, has said that this says the mentality of ‘us versus them’ is still securely set in the minds of some Americans. The fear that drove much of the discrimination towards Arab and Muslim Americans was also present in the treatment towards German Americans in World War 2. Everything with a German connection was either changed or removed. German American store owners had their shops vandalized and acts of violence towards German Americans, though not common, wan not unheard of. In one instance, a son of a German immigrant was lynched because his membership of the Socialist party was seen as disloyalty. American Muslims are under constant suspicion due to the stereotypes and misconceptions. Even with numerous Muslims have severely rebuked the actions of 9/11.Violence and destruction is a threat to Muslim Americans that is becoming more common with the myths about both islam and Muslims. Several mosques have been set on fire and damaged significantly as well as a close…

Final Exam Take-Home Questions
I definitely agree that the 1954 Brown decision and the three Civil Rights Laws that followed in the 1960s were preceded by the events listed in the question. There are many cases that serve as examples to this claim and although some were more directly associated with the Brown case result, they are all just as important for the outcome of the case.
One case I feel was important in determining…
How often is a book or guide that was written in the first century BC still used in this modern day society? Hardly any other writings have that level of prestige. Sun Tzu was a tactical genius and wrote “The Art of War.” This book is still read, studied, and practiced by many of today's leaders and military tacticians.
The art of war is considered a masterpiece on the philosophy of war and how to manage conflicts and win battles. Though it has been very hard to determine the…

I am here, in the war. Writing to you all from these horrid Trenches. I have been fighting, trying to stay alive for these past six months. All I see everyday are people from both sides dying, thousands of lives being claimed. The living conditions in the trenches are absolutely disgusting. We have to sleep, eat, and basically live our lives among rats, lice, all types of bacteria, our own feces and especially hundreds of rotting dead bodies until the war ends, which I doubt will happen…

- description of people very shy and unassuming.
- pictures alter as war goes on – people are waving at camera (5)
- on the picture of the dazed Robert: “You know it will obtrude again and again until you
find its meaning – here.” (6)
- Robert “doubts the validity in all this martialling of men but the doubt is inarticulate.”
That Robert opposed the war says a lot about the circumstances – Rowena’s death, his
mother – that drove him to enlist

you agree that the impact of the First World War was beneficial to the economy and society of the US? – 30 marks
America was initially an isolationist country and did not really want to enter the war as they believed it to be a purely European affair, but after the sinking of the Lucitania and the German pledge to sink any ship bound for the states president Wilson felt he had no choice but to enter the War on the side of the allies. After the war the dynamic of America had changed significantly…
A War Between Wars
On January 8, 1964, President Lyndon B. Johnson announced a declaration of War on Poverty in America at his first State of the Union address. Later on that year, in August, Congress passed the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution, giving President Johnson the freedom to do whatever he felt was necessary to defend and protect Southeast Asia, including using armed forces. This was not exactly a declaration of war, but it definitely played a significant role in the escalation of the Vietnam…
Explain the importance of the Home Front to the final outcome of the War.
By Daniel Leeder.
Although the Home Front was not as important as the land war in Europe and the war at sea, it was still relatively important to the final outcome of the war. Some of the most important points include, the fact that the British public was affected or involved in a major war for the first time, bombs dropped on London by Zeppelins and the Defence of the Realm Act (DORA). Further points include the munitions…
