Due to geography and population growth, the Middle East nations are faced with a growing demand for a shrinking water supply. 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

Journal Assignment (Oil Market)
Throughout the past decade there has been constant discussion about the United States attaining most of its oil from the Middle East. In fact, many journalists and news feeds have theorized how the majority of American oil has been imported by the Middle Eastern countries, and have even gone to the extent to claim that the American “War on Terror” in Iraq was simply to attain more oil. Whether these conspiracy theories are true or not, import data on oil to the United States has proven otherwise. Peter Kiernan’s (2008) article “America is Not as Dependent on Persian Gulf Oil as Some Might Think” illustrates what his proposed title claims by

Iran is still a viable threat, with possible nuclear weapons being developed there. As I write this essay, American troops continue to fight in the longest war in US history. Afghanistan reminds me a little of Vietnam; troops would hear of peace talks and be told there will be no conflict as the war will die down and they'll be sent home. That obviously was not the case in Vietnam. The 2014 pullout date in Afghanistan, though it seems final, troops will then go on to other areas in the Middle East, in red zones such as Syria, and aiding the Israelis. Foreign

Religion Politics and War in the Middle East
The overwhelming majority of people living in the Middle East nations are Muslim and the realm is the birthplace of Christianity. The Muslim culture continues to pressure the Cristian followers to convert, leave the realm, or be killed. The disagreements, fighting, and killings continue to exist and there does not seem to be a resolution for peace with these people living in the Middle East.
According to Ismail, K. (September 22, 2013), a suicide attack in Peshawar, Pakistan on a Christian church killed 78 people and wounded more than 120. The attack happened when the Christian worshipers were dismissed from the service. At

1. Had John done anything wrong?
I believe that John has made a potentially harmful choice in this situation, but I also don’t think that it is necessarily wrong. It is obvious that John did his homework and discovered wasta. Wasta is simply “pulling strings, nepotism or using an interceder to obtain benefits or to speed a process – usually in relation to authorities.” While wasta is a normal practice in the Middle East, therefore John was simply taking measures that were not out of custom.
2. Were John’s actions immoral? Unethical? Illegal?
In short I believe that John’s actions were unethical, immoral, but not illegal.

the war in the Middle East has made Europeans hesitant to a Republican foreign policy. During the Bush administration then then U.S. defense secretary, Donald Rumsfeld, referred to countries not supporting the United States in the Middle East as “Old Europe” (European Conservatives). Although Romney was not involved in that administration, Europeans were by default very supported of the new elected President Obama in 2008. President Obama is also thought to get more involved in European aid if he is reelected, but doing so now would hurt his support and vote from the US voters.

In addition, Afghanistan is an Islamic nation that supports Islamic beliefs, while the United States, although heavily Christian influenced, is a “Fruit-Bowl” nation where is it a separation between Church and State.

Giddens lumps together all types of fundamentalism together, ignoring important differences between them. Jeff Haynes argues that we should not focus narrowly on the idea that Islamic fundamentalism is a reaction against globalisation. For example in the Middle East, conflicts caused by failure of local elites to deliver on their promises to improve the standard of living are often the fuel that drives fundamentalism. This evidence argues that globalisation has undermined traditional religious beliefs.

since they don’t lay people off just people the stocks go down or the company is losing money. What I got from the last chapter was the we have too much freedom. Americans are used to everyday crime so it is not that big of a deal to us. While crime in the east carries stricter punishments and therefore there is less crime because their society is educated on the rules and laws. They have less freedom in my opinion. Are we abusing this freedom and taking advantage of the politeness of Japanese people? I have travelled extensively throughout the entire world but I have never lived in another country. I think if I lived in another country, in this case Japan, for quite some time then I would probably get a better personal feel for their beliefs and culture. I have spent more time in the middle east and Muslim countries so I am looking forward to book review two for this course.

The attitudes of the pharaohs have changed during the Middle Kingdom. Unlike in the Old Kingdom the pharaohs were more of a good shepherd(26). They took care of their people and protected Egypt from outside intruders. We know this “peaceful time” from the literature and also a time of growth. Egypt wanted to expand out of their shell(26).

A second policy option would be to cut military assistance as apart of foreign aid and focus on humanitarian efforts. A positive aspect of this policy is that the U.S. would no longer be supplying weapons to countries that have a long standing history of fighting with other countries in their region, this is especially true in the Middle East. Another positive aspect is that humanitarian efforts may be more beneficial to the United States regarding national security than a continued use of military aid and assistance (Bristol, 2011, p.532).

Israel seized Gaza and the Sinai from Egypt in the south and the Golan Heights from Syria in the north. It also pushed Jordanian forces out of the West Bank and East Jerusalem.

External Changes which have impact on AirAsia
1. Asia’s middle class growth
Low cost airlines are anticipated to have greater potential in Asia as there are many Asian cities with a population above one million people each as well as a rising middle class population. This growth of middle class in Asia provides a huge market potential for AirAsia to grow.
However, as the market is becoming larger, more airlines or new comers would like to get a piece of the action. For example, Budget airlines, it is estimated, will capture at least 25% of Asia’s air travel market
