Yasser Arafat: A Story Of My Search

Decent Essays
Have you ever wondered how Palestine became occupied? How people suddenly started calling it Israel? I was shocked to see that because of the occupation in my country, Palestine, my grandparents had to flee the country, and how some people refer to it as Israel instead of the true name Palestine. Yasser Arafat was the founder of the Fatah. He spent most of his lifetime fighting Israel and that is why many Palestinians admire and respect him.

As I explained before the Zionists slowly took over by allowing more and more Jews to enter Palestine when suddenly the population of Palestinians and Jews were about the same percent. So that allowed them to occupy it more quickly and more efficiently. This research assignment allowed me to gain more information about my country.Eventhough it took some time, I am happy that I was able to gain more

He had saved Jews before 1939 when World War II was beginning. Since the amount of Jews he saved was so large, he is known as “the spy who saved ten thousand Jews”. His main way of saving and helping the Jews was interpreting the rules on visas loosely and helping forge passports.…

    It’s hard to believe someone could be so cruel hearted with a full conscious. Studies show he didn’t have any mental illnesses until the last ten months of his life. By 1938, Hitler convinced himself he wouldn’t live long; some people conclude that is why he wanted to move the extermination of Jews as quick as possible (The Holocaust, 628). While it was Hitler and Nazis that carried out the killings of the Jews, many of the horrors were caused by everyday people. Historians believe that the Holocaust was somewhere between two extremes.…

    The Israeli-Palestinian conflict of 1947 is an on-going conflict between the two middle-eastern countries of Israel and Palestine. After the end of World War II, the Jewish people were displaced as were the Palestinians, but before World War II the Ottoman Empire devoured most of the land-now known as the Middle-East this land had been divided among the Islamic people who already inhabited the lands. The Jewish people had no place to go, having been dehumanized for centuries within Europe and everywhere else, the United Nation’s finally fulfilled a duty they set for themselves after World War I, which had been to set aside land for the Jewish and Palestinian people.

    In “Home Soil,” what tormented Bohdan’s father was his attitude towards Jewish people. He did not know he had that demon inside him until Nazis soldiers recruited him as he says, “I felt such an intense charge of power, more so than I had ever felt writing some of my best poems.”(Zabytko 645). The power of the rifle possessed him. He had finally gotten the power in his hands and it was not for writing to the Nazis it was because now the life of Jewish people was in his hands. Something that impacted his life forever was the sudden appearance of a young girl.…
