Dawn Timeline : 1939 - 1947 Compare the order of events with your shoulder partner
Compare your timeline to the one below. Early Judaism • 2000 years ago, Jewish people live in Judea (present day Israel) and were called “Israelites.” They believe that this land was given to them by God. WWII (1939-1945) • WWII • Jews are kicked out of homes and neighborhoods by Nazis in Europe; they’re made to live in ghettos. • 6 million Jews are murdered in concentration camps throughout Europe over the course of WWII (2/3 of entire population of European Jews). Europe- Post WWII (1945) • Jews who survive the war do not have homes to which to return (and if they did, they probably didn’t want to return, as their neighbors were often the people who had turned them in to the Nazis). Palestine/Israel- Post WWII (1947) • Leading up to WWII, Israel is called Palestine, and Palestinian (Arabic) people live there. They believe that this land has been given to them by God. • Britain rules over Palestine (it is similar to a colony). • Many Jews from Europe and some from other Middle Eastern/ northern African countries immigrate to Israel. • Jews want complete political freedom from the British (they want Britain to leave). • Jewish radical groups are angered by Britain’s presence in Israel; these groups bomb several of Britain’s political buildings in Israel and assassinate several British officers. British officers retaliate against bombings. • The United Nations declares that Palestine will become an independent country for the Jewish people (called Israel), even though there are Palestinian/ Arabic people currently living there. • Israel must be divided in two parts: Palestinians are given a small section, and Jews are given the majority of land. • Many Palestinians are angered by having to move. • Bitter relations between Jews and Palestinians continue.

Do Now: Thursday, March 15th, 2012 Read the following paragraph . Then, re-write it, punctuating it correctly. It is pretty well established that animals are capable of suffering, we’ve come a long way since Descartes famously compared them to: nonfeeling machines put on earth to serve man. Rousseau later countered this, saying that animals shared “some measure” of human nature, and should partake of “natural right.” No matter where you stand on this spectrum, you probably agree that its a noble goal to reduce the level of the suffering of animals raised for meat in industrial conditions.
