History 12: Friday, 30 March

Today we discussed the creation of a Jewish homeland in Palestine.  We examined Zionist and Arab nationalism in the region.  We also looked at the British connection through the 1916 Sykes-Picot Agreement to divvy up the Ottoman territory (in spite of promises to the Arabs for helping the British to defeat the Turks) and the 1917 Balfour Declaration promising a Jewish homeland.  Please complete w.b. Ex # 14-15 for homework (read pp. 59-61).  Also, please read w.b. pp. 61-62 and do w.b. Ex # 16-17 for homework (I've given you a short reading on India from the old Howarth text - it is optional).  Don't forget about your dictators comparison paragraph.  We'll have a PPT discussion on India on Monday, and then prep for your Italy/Germany/Palestine/India unit test.
