    Overview/Background and Causes of Human Rights Violation:
    From the period of 1948 to 1991, the system of racial segregation has impacted the state of South Africa. The word, apartheid, means separateness, in Afrikaans.Since the year 1910, South Africa has been characterized by racial segregation. After that time the country's all-white parliament was able to push legislation that limited blacks' participation in political and business jobs of high stature.The policy of apartheid was imposed by the white minority government of South Africa; they hoped to enforce restrictions on the human rights and civil liberties of the black majority.

    -Various organizations formed to fight for African rights and the protection of them, during the apartheid. In 1955, the group called the Congress of the People, held a summit in a suburb of Soweto. The result was the Freedom Charter, which advocated democratic governance and equal rights regardless of race and gender. The Freedom Charter also called for public ownership of the country's resources; all of which included free health care, education, and the support for the underprivileged.

    Overview/Background and Causes of Human Rights Violation:
    Fro vmFrom the period
    Even though the British had given South Africa its independence in 1910, only the whites, or Dutch colonists Boers, were able to wield any political power. Before, however, the Natives Land Act of 1913 segregated ownership of land by race; also denied blacks the rights of employment in certain businesses. Even so, there had not been strict enforcement of any segregating laws up until this time. Then, when the 1948 elections brought the National Party to power, it immediately set about implementing laws to make the apartheid a reality. These Population Laws were instituted to classify people as Bantu, colored, and descendants of the Dutch and the British. Other laws dictated where members of each race could live an work or own land.This apartheid gave the greatest advantage to whites; and those of mixed race enjoyed greater privileges and rights than blacks.The apartheid regime then established Bantustans; a small collection of nations within the country's borders set aside for blacks; making them citizens of their land regardless of where they lived.However, these nations were unable to sustain themselves economically and were recognized only by the white South Africa government.White people were given control over more than 80 percent of South Africa's land, even though they made up only 10 percent of the population..

    Overview/Background and Causes of Human Rights Violation:
    -The division of Palestine after World War II set off many disputes in the Middle East. Problems of these new nations included the writing of a new constitution, the merging of diverse peoples, and involvement in territorial disputes with neighbors. Moreover, Palestinians who did not remain in Israel faced a disruptive life as refugees. This conflict between Jews and Arabs and Palestinians over a Palestinian homeland, has many reasons for its existence. To Jews, their claim to the land goes back 3,000 years, when their Jewish kings ruled from Jerusalem. But to Palestinians, which includes both Muslim and Christian religions, the land has belonged to them since the Jews were driven out around A.D. 135. To Arabs, the land has belonged to them since their conquest of the area in the 7th century. Zionists, who favored a Jewish national homeland in Palestine, had begun to settle in Palestine in the late 19th and early 20th century. At the time, the region was still part of the Ottoman empire. After the defeat of the Ottomans in WWI, the League of nations asked Britain to oversee Palestine until it was ready for independence.
    ...
    -This is important because today, there is still much controversy over territory and the peace process has been complicated by unsupporting leaders of the peace policy in either the Arab or Israeli states. This has caused bitter agreements and more resentment; all of which have resulted in more fighting over territorial lines and rights to the land. The controversy in an area where oil and other natural resources are abundant, have affected the world economy; especially the United States which is one of the world's leading consumers.
    Picture/Cartoon:
    {http://www.lib.utexas.edu/maps/middle_east_and_asia/closures.gif} As you can see, the area of the Gaza Strip and West Bank territories are still in conflict. There is discrepancy over Israeli and Arab territory. There have been agreements made as to where the military may train, or privately owned land for military needs; however there are still territorial disputes in this area. {http://support-gaza.com/yahoo_site_admin/assets/images/West_Bank__Gaza_Map_2007_Settlements.1912940.gif} From this map, it is apparent that there are still disagreements as to Palestinian and Israeli territory. The Palestinians who were displaced seek their own territories, while the Jewish people of Israel fail to comply to many of the Palestinians' demands. The weak rule of many Israeli leaders has led to the complication of this peace process between the Palestinians and Israelis; causing violence and actual fences to be built, dividing the territory to prevent disputes.
