Revolutions are never easy, not their start, nor their end. It takes strong political will, sacrifice and perseverance to win. Entering a revolution often comes with anger, doubts and fears. Your fears of survival and your doubts of short lived results that could demean your sacrifice, and threaten your security at cellular levels. As a major settler country that faced many social, economic, and political injustices in comparison to their settled French counterparts, Algeria took a stand to end French settlement. This sacrifices however only proved to be have disappointing outcomes leaving the country highly fractured both short term and long term, leading up to the civil war of 1992. I say with great emphasis that it is more difficult to govern a government that is faces post-revolutionary crisis than it is to overthrow an entire establishment. Such is proven in the wake of Algeria's revolution in the 1950s which has left an estimated 700,000 dead, and thousands more scarred physically and psychologically. Both sides of the battle, the Algiers and the French paratroopers, used merciless guerrilla tactics and torture against its own people.[1] Algeria continued however to struggle with civilian casualties. Among those the “Berber people at the hands various factions of insurgents, and was successful for a while”[2]. It is my assertion that decolonization France did not grant formal eminent rule, nor did it administer political order and help cultivate Algeria peacefully as a nation. The question remains however, would Algeria have succeeded long term as a nation under French rule? One can argue that Algerian ties to advanced French culture, language, medicine, technological advancement and western culture would have left Algerians in a much better conditions than the alternatives of the ensuing regimes that have depleted French roots in the country. In light of…...

Unreached People Group Project Abstract

...located in North Africa, in the country of Algeria. Algeria has a population of almost 37.5 million people. Algeria attained their independence a relatively short time ago when they won their independence from France in 1962. While the majority of the population in the past where the Berbers that held close to Chrisitanity, this changed around the seventh century when Arabs invaded the area. Now, almost 95% of the population is Muslim, and only 0.17 % of the population is Christian. An even further challenge is the fact that the primary language of this area is Arabic-speaking. How will someone overcome the challenges of language and an extremely minimal amount of exposure to God and Christianity? This paper will provide information that people and organizations anywhere can utilize for missions. This paper will better prepare those people and organizations as to what they can expect, methods of communication, challenges they may face, and so on during their visit in Alegeria. This paper will explore the culture of customs of Algeria in order to find ways that those either on or going on mission to this area will find invaluable. This paper does not serve as an exhaustive, step-by-step manual for missions in Algeria. This paper simply serves as a framework for missions, and more specifically, missions in Algeria. Some parts of missions can only be learned through experience. BACKGROUND Algeria is located in North Africa. ......

Just Pos Vellum

...The United Nations has created a body to help the global security and the stable between nations, but they have not developed concrete guidelines for jus post bellum (justice after war). Many questions have not been answered. For example, how much disarmament is just? Who should decide how much disarmament is appropriate? Should all countries follow the same standards and rules of disarmament? These are all the questions we should put into consideration in order to reinforce the justice after war. In the Biological and Toxin Weapons Convention (BTWC), Algeria was determined in (erase) achieving effective progress toward the complete disarmament, prohibition and elimination of all biological and toxic weapons. Algeria also signed Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT) and pledged to be a non nuclear state in 1995. After that Algeria was among the first countries to sign the Treaty of Pelindaba which established the African continent a nuclear free zone. We partly agree with disarmament of the losing country. But the disarmament should be discuss between the victors, losers, and a fair judge independent panel through the United Nations . There are several possible solutions that The United Nations could implement in order to improve the jus post bellum questions. First, we think a completely independent body, run by The United Nations, should decide how much disarmament is just for each country. We think the discussion of disarmament should take place......

Battle of Algeria

...There’s always more than one side to a story. After watching Gilles Pontecorvo's The Battle of Algiers, I actually felt melancholy for the native Algerians and French even though they were fighting against each other. In the film, Pontecorvo depicts both sides suffering through so much during Algeria’s war for independence. I didn’t know of this war but the film opened my eyes to the discrepancy that was going on in Algeria at this time in history. The film takes place shortly after World War I, and you can see the distress within the people of Algeria. They were totally against imperialistic rule, and indeed they tried to overrule colonialism amongst themselves. The National Liberation Front also known as the FLN was a small group who took matters in their own hands. They had people set off bombs in crowded areas; however I didn’t understand the point of that because they were still killing innocent people by doing this. Yes the French did do horrific things to the Algerian women and children but two wrongs don’t make a right. I felt this wasn’t a smart idea on the FLN part yet again; things were different back then than how it is now. The French fought fire with more fire. I noticed that when there were scenes of the French armies approaching the sounds were different from scenes of the Algerians or the FLN. The scenes of the French army seemed dark and there were always gunshots in the background. To me those are common signs of war or that something evil is about to......

Scramble for Africa

...impressionable and take whatever our educators tell us as undisputed facts. My understanding of the many wars we have been taught has evidently not been the entire truth. I have been shielded from the violence and racism that was used to carry out such wars. It is apparent that the motives behind many historical actions have been misguided with half-truths and whole lies. My teachings have revolved around bettering inferior lands with generosity and a duty to teach a better way of life. An event that exemplifies dominance through violence and belief of superiority was that of the 19th century overtaking of Algeria by France, better known as the Pacification of Algeria. The event began in the late 1830s and continued well into the 1840s when Algeria was finally annexed to France in 1848. The French military was ordered to pacify the country of Algeria using any means necessary to push out the native Algerians. This in turn opened the doors to French expansion into this Northern African Country. An army of 108,000 French troops tracked down Algerians, tortured, humiliated, and killed them, or ejected them from their lands and villages. The crimes related with this violent process cannot be understated and escalated in severity in 1845. As French troops continued their devastating display through the country, village takeovers became common place. The French were responsible for setting ablaze a cave where hundreds of local Algerians sought refuge from French......

Lending Institutions, Healthcare and Human Capital in Algeria

...Lending Institutions, Healthcare and Human Capital in Algeria Lending Institutions, Healthcare and Human Capital in Algeria The central bank gives the system its overall consistency and provides resources to other bodies. In addition, laws and regulations underpinning bank supervision may not be formally deficient. However, the extensive state ownership of banks severely undermines regulatory governance (IMF, 2004). Many uncertainties also surround the preconditions for effective banking supervision and sustainable macroeconomic policies. These uncertainties also hinders well-developed public infrastructure, effective market discipline, efficient resolution of banking problems and appropriate level of systemic protection. Evident in the IMF (2004) report is the award of banking licenses to individuals without experience. The net worth of bank owners could not be reliably established (IMF, 2004). The 1990 law on money did not require full capital payment. This culminated to the failure of the largest private bank in 2003 with assets of 3% of GDP. The Algerian banking system currently has 28 active lending institutions of which 21 are banks and 7 are financial institutions. There is also one development bank and an offshore bank. The total number of lending institutions has increased from end 1999 when there were 21 as a result of private sector development. Even though, currently there are 15 private banks, the public sector remains predominant (IMF, 2004). They have......

Orascom

...Orascom Telecom Case Course: MKTG36048 Date: January 24th, 2012 Sheridan College Executive Summary With Orascom’s Algerian office being attacked and its failure to enter the Indian market, they have a real problem assessing risks in internationalization.  The company has done really well locally becoming the market leader within Egypt by owning 43.6% of market share within the telecom industry.  Algeria showed the right signs for entry as its GDP increased at a rate of 3.8% per year. There was also very little competition in Algeria since there was only one telecom company available. However there were country risks that were not assessed. This resulted in Orascoms office in Algeria to be attacked by angry soccer fans. India took on new liberalized laws that would open the telecom industry to the private sector and reduce tariffs. The telecom sector was projected to make $43 billion in revenues. This shows that there were investments to be made in the industry as there were millions of new subscribers every year. However, Orascom failed to capitalize on the huge Indian market as it failed in the Indian market within in a short amount of time of entering. If Orascom follows the recommendation of improving its strategic planning, then the risks of internationalization will be minimized and this will result in the company being very successful entering foreign markets.

Antisemitism and Catholic Colonial Algeria in the Time of Dreyfus

...[2] As the site of some of the only murderous violence during the Affair, colonial Algeria deserves particular attention. Examining the Dreyfus Affair from the perspective of French colonial Algeria illuminates the place of antisemitism in Algerian political culture, the development of modern French antisemitism, and the relationship between antisemitism and colonial racism.[3] According to George Fredrickson, antisemitism, like all Western racisms, is predicated on a presumption of basic human equality rooted in Christian and Enlightenment universalism.[4] For those uncomfortable with the implications of this leveling premise, racism offered a means of maintaining social hierarchies by characterizing its victims as innately and irredeemably sub-human. These essentializing distinctions provided the rationale both for the exclusion of Algerian Muslims from French citizenship, and popular efforts to characterize naturalized Algerian Jews as un-French foreigners.[5] Each form of racism, however, is particular to its socio-cultural context, invariably enmeshed in local struggles to define the boundaries of national and group identity.[6] Close examination of the 1899 reporting of La Croix de l'Algérie et de la Tunisie, one of 86 local subsidiaries of the Catholic Assumptionist daily La Croix, provides an illustrative microcosm of these processes in the under-studied space of French colonial Algeria. Deriving from the political and economic particularities of its Algerian......

Settler Colonialism

...Settler Colonialism in the Middle East in the 20th and 21st Centuries ----- French Algeria Introduction: There are various kinds of colonialism such as occupation colonialism, imperial colonialism, and informal colonialism. The most common one is occupation colonialism, for example, the first wave of colonialism from late 15th century to early 19th century. No matter how differently they are called, the one thing all these colonialisms share in common is that exogenous power dominates local inhabitants. This subordination of local population could be in political, social, and even cultural ways. In these colonial relations, colonists make use of the local labor and then return home in a circular movement. Nevertheless, Settler Colonialism, described by scholar Lorenzo Veracini, is a straight line without turning pointing, a form of colonial formation that migrants remove the previous inhabitants and then take over the land they claim to form their self-ruling government.(1) Although it is called settler colonialism, it is largely different from the others. These settlers are motivated by land resource and the wealth and opportunities it could bring while natural resources such as oil, gold, fiber and human resources like labor, trade networks are more concerned resources in other forms of colonialisms, argued by scholars like Patrick Wolfe and Veracini. Besides, Settlers believe that local people should be removed from the land they claimed,......

Algeria has the 10th largest reserves of natural gas in the world and is the sixth largest gas exporter. It ranks 16th in oil reserves. Algeria's oil and gas export revenue has allowed the country to maintain a comfortable level of foreign exchange reserves, which reached $194 billion by the end of December 2013, according to the country's central bank. The crude oil production is 1193 barrels per day. 2.

Morocco & Algeria

...Comparison between Morocco and Algeria Morocco and Algeria are neighborhood countries and share almost 1500 Kilometers of frontiers, and both of them are limited be the Mediterranean Sea in the north. Algeria is the second powerful country in Africa after South Africa while Morocco is the fifth one after the Egypt and Nigeria. In addition to Arabs, Sahraouis and Berbers represent the two main populations in the two countries. Moreover, both of them have Arabic as official language and French as second and administrative one since their independences from France colonization. Another similarity between Algeria and Morocco is their identical climates that differ as we move along both countries, extreme temperatures in the south, and moderate weather in the north. Despite these numerous similarities, Morocco and Algeria differ in three major domains: Their area, their resources, and their political systems and actions over the history of country. The first big dissimilarity between Algeria and Morocco is their areas. In fact, Algeria counts four times the area of Morocco. Algeria extends in more than two millions kilometers square and it is the second big country in Africa after the Sudan and the eleventh worldwide whereas Morocco has only seventh hundred thousand kilometers square whereof two-hundred fifty in Western Sahara which makes Morocco in the eight rank of superficies in Africa and the fifth-seventh in the world. Morocco claims a big part of Algeria that......
