The correct answer is A) to ease tension to promote negotiation.

In his "Letter from Birmingham Jail," Martin Luther King Jr. described the purpose of nonviolent direct action as to ease tension to promote negotiation.

On April 16, 1963, Martin Luther King Jr. wrote the open letter called "Letter from Birmingham Jail." It was a call for nonviolent resistance as a way to protest against racism and lack of rights for African Americans. Martin Luther King Jr. considered that people should take any kind of action to fight for their rights instead of standing still, doing nothing, expecting the government could take actions one day. So it is correct to say that in his "Letter from Birmingham Jail," Martin Luther King Jr. described the purpose of nonviolent direct action as to ease tension to promote negotiation.

Mark each statement that correctly describes the political and religious conflicts between the Ottoman and Safavid empires.

Answer:

There are both political and religious reasons behind the conflicts between the two empires.

Explanation:

Political Reasons:

Since the establishment of the Safavid dynasty in Persia (Iran) there were struggles between the two empires due to the following:

1. Trade Embargoes:

The Ottomans were consistently using trade embargoes against the Safavid Empire and were arresting the people crossing into their country which culminated into the Battle of Chaldiran (1514) followed by a century of border confrontation.

2. Border confrontation:

The Treaty of Zuhab, signed between the two empires recognised Iraq in Ottoman control, and partitioned Caucasus into two between the two empires.

Religious Reason:

One of the important reasons of the combative relationship is due to religion. While the Safavid's were the worshippers of Shia Islam, the Ottoman's were the followers of Sunni Islam.

After the signing of a peace treaty, Treaty of Erzurum (1847), peace was ensured between the two empires after centuries of rivalry.

n theory. But the reality of dealing with developed and developing nations meant and means it is almost impossible to come up with agreements that really work. Developed countries can afford to take some measures, even if they complain about the costs. But for developing nations, the added cost stalls out their development. So the effect is to impose the most burdens on the developed nations, while giving a "pass" to the developing nations. But with the idea of carbon offsets, developed nations can purchase the right to exceed their CO2 output. The Kyoto Protocols are essentially a joke and obsolete.

When was the final loss of Jerusalem for European forces

The final loss of Jerusalem for European forces can be considered to be between 1270 and 1272. In the year 1270, Louis IX of France who lead the (arguably called) Eight crusade died on the shores of modern day Tunisia. This had effectively ended the Eight crusade and also led Henry III of England's son Edward to sail to Acre and try to reclaim the city. He was, however, unsucessful and had to return back to England. His demise marks the ending of the Ninth crusade which lasted from around 1271 to 1272. After this crusade no major attempt from Europe was made again to reclaim Jerusalem or any other city captured by the Crusaders in previous crusades.
