12 The Crusades’ Everlasting Affect On the Muslims
Became isolated from “West.” Believe that Europe ended their “Golden Age.” The Crusades is a faded event for the West, but it still lives in the minds of the Muslims to this day.

16 From Ottoman to England
During WWI, England promised to give an independent Arab state if they helped defeat the Ottoman Turks. Unaware to the Muslims, Sykes-Picot Agreement did opposite. Arab revolt against Turks. Arabs Revolt Against Ottomans

17 T.E. Lawrence & Faisal Hussein
T.E. Lawrence, aka Lawrence of Arabia, sent to bring order to Arab revolt. Met Faisal Hussein, son of Sharif Hussein. Successfully fought Turks. Guerilla war tactics.

18 The Fate of the Middle East
An Arabian Desert January 18, 1919, both went to Paris Peace Conference. Interest was in territory, not peace. Rather than Arab independence, Middle East divided into small territories by Europeans. Changed masters from Muslim Turks to European Christians. Versailles Peace Conference

19 Zionism Threat to Fallahin, Arab peasants in Palestine.
Jews bought up their land for prices they could not pay. Balfour Declaration promised a Jewish homeland. Palestinians rioted. White Paper in 1939 promised Palestine to Arabs now. In 1948, UN voted to make Palestine a Jewish state, not an Arab one.

20 Foreign Office The Balfour Declaration
November 2nd, 1917 Dear Lord Rothschild, I have much pleasure in conveying to you, on behalf of His Majesty's Government, the following declaration of sympathy with Jewish Zionist aspirations which has been submitted to, and approved by, the Cabinet. "His Majesty's Government view with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, and will use their best endeavours to facilitate the achievement of this object, it being clearly understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non- Jewish communities in Palestine, or the rights and political status enjoyed by Jews in any other country." I should be grateful if you would bring this declaration to the knowledge of the Zionist Federation. Yours sincerely, Arthur James Balfour

21 Muslims Vs. West Muslims countries colonized by Europeans.
France brought ideas of Western development to backward Muslims. Britain promised an independent state to Arabs but gave it to the Jews in 1948. Muslims say West plots to get their oil but won’t not share better technology. Say holy religion of Islam disrespected. Result is feelings of resentment and hostility towards West.
