    Question 1 (Multiple Choice Worth 5 points) Read this quote from Yasser Arafat, then answer the question: "Palestine is the cement that holds the Arab world together, or it is the explosive that blows it apart."—Yasser Arafat Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat made the above statement during an interview with Time Magazine (November 11, 1974). Based on this quote, which of the following statements would Arafat also agree with? If Palestinian peace is not achieved, all Middle East nations will descend into chaos and violence. All the nations of the Middle East look to Palestine and its leaders for guidance in how to cooperate peacefully. It is the Palestinians themselves, not the Israelis, who must find the path to peace in the Middle East. Most Middle Eastern nations have too many internal problems to concern themselves with the Israeli-Palestinian peace process. Question 2 (Multiple Choice Worth 5 points) Use this image to answer the question: © 2012 The Associated Press This photograph was taken in Rafah in Palestinian territory in 2009. What does the photo reveal about violence in the region? Entire families are engaged in violent acts of violence. Children are in harm’s way due to acts of violence. Militants cannot operate out of destroyed buildings. It has not disrupted the lives of civilians. Question 3 (Multiple Choice Worth 5 points) Nationalist conflict in Haiti has resulted in wars of religion political stability economic turmoil expanded welfare programs Question 4 (Multiple Choice Worth 5 points) Read this quote from Fidel Castro, then answer the question: Marxism taught me what society was. I was like a blindfolded man in a forest, who doesn't even know where north or south is. If you don't eventually come to truly understand the history of the class struggle, or at least have a clear idea that society is divided between the rich and the poor, and that some people subjugate and exploit other people, you're lost in a forest, not knowing anything.—Fidel Castro, 2009 Fidel Castro, long-time leader of Cuba, made the above statement during an interview in 2009. The statement is in response to a question about what influenced him to become a Cuban nationalist. Which of the following can be inferred from this statement? Geopolitics is important to a people's well-being. A revolution should arise out of a people's history. Society's rich should not exploit the poor. Nonviolence should be used to achieve class equality. Question 5 (Multiple Choice Worth 5 points) © 2012 The Associated Press The town in this photograph is named Duvallerville. It was founded by the Haitian President Francois "Papa Doc" Duvalier. What does this image say about Duvalier's approach toward governing? He wanted to modernize Haiti. He focused on improving Haiti's infrastructure. He did not focus on human welfare programs. He did not approve of poorly planned projects. Question 6 (Multiple Choice Worth 5 points) Jawaharlal Nehru would be considered an activist Indian leader a violent dictator in India one who compromised with imperial powers one who opposed democratic reforms Question 7 (Multiple Choice Worth 5 points) Read this quote from the Balfour Declaration of 1917, then answer the question: "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 the 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."—excerpt from the Balfour Declaration, 1917 Public Domain What does this excerpt from the Balfour Declaration argue for? a disregard for the rights of Palestinians protecting Jews from the Palestinians the creation of a Jewish state in Palestine granting citizenship rights to Palestinians Question 8 (Multiple Choice Worth 5 points) Read this quote from Haidar Abd El-Shafi, then answer the question: "We, the people of Palestine, stand before you in the fullness of our pain, our pride, and our anticipation, for we long harbored a yearning for peace and a dream of justice and freedom. For too long, the Palestinian people have gone unheeded, silenced and denied, our identity negated by political expedience, our right for struggle against injustice maligned, and our present existence subsumed by the past tragedy of another people."—Haidar Abd El-Shafi, head of the Palestinian Delegation to the Madrid Peace Conference, 1991 The above quote is from a speech given at the Madrid Peace Conference by a Palestinian leader. To which of the following does the speaker attribute the ignoring of his people's suffering? Palestinians' unrealistic dreams the Nazi killing of Jews the excessive pride of Jews Palestinians' silence on their plight Question 9 (Multiple Choice Worth 5 points) What was the outcome of the Six-Day War of 1967?
