Al Qaeda has two major strategic objectives which are to get control of a nation‐state and to get the control of weapons of mass destruction.
Al Qaeda or Al Qaida is an Islamic jihadist organization which calls itself as an Islamic resistance movement around the world, while it is always marked as a network international terrorist. Its founder, leader and largest contributor is Osama Bin Laden, a billionaire construction of oil and Saudi origin, who was educated in the best universities in the U.K and collaborate with the C.I.A. Bin Laden directed the financial operation in a computer archivist called al Qaeda (literally base “data”). Since then many members of the mujahideen extremist went association with Al Qaeda network.
In December 1978 Prince Turki Al Faycoal, director of the Saudi secret service, recruited to Bin Laden for financial trading operations the CIA in Afghanistan. The CIA invested two billion dollars to achieve the fall of the Soviet Union which at that time was waging a war in the central Asia country. The Saudi and U.S services joined Islamic fundamentalist armed them and choose them in a jihad to fight the soviets. The actions of these extremist fighters were directed against certain governments in such diverse regions as Afghanistan. (Against the occupation of the U.S.S.R) There is an ample document evidence on the indirect support of the U.S administration and the CIA to the Afghanistan struggle against the soviet invasion that was consistent with their interest during the cold war, but there is no evidence to support allegations that the group led by Osama Bin Laden and Ayma Al‐Zawahiri was financed and trained by the CIA or the U.S government according to the U.S supported the afghan soldiers in his defense against the soviet invasion and those who would join after the group has joined the figth and took adventage of U.S support.

Justice is defined as a concept of moral rightness and fairness. In the 1800s, gender inequality was a huge conflict. Men were able to own land and open businesses, while women weren’t even given the right to open up a bank account. However, the uprising of reform movements was beginning during this time as well. One enormously great movement that came to be, was the woman’s suffrage movement. SusanB.Anthony was a crucial member of this historical endeavor. She dedicated her life to helping the women of our country obtain the same rights as men. This made her a great inspirational leader.
Susan Brownell Anthony was born on February 15, 1820 to a cotton mill owner and his wife. She was the second oldest of eight children, and although born in Adams, Massachusetts, her family moved to Batten Ville, New York, in 1826. The Anthony’s were a Quaker family. This helped Susan to develop justice outlooks and strong morals early on in life. Her father was a sixth generation Quaker, and believed strongly in equal opportunities for boys and girls. The family was also very active with other reform movements of the era. Temperance, the anti-slavery movements, and the Declaration of Sentiments were only a few of the reforms they were involved in. The Anthony’s eventually moved to Rochester, New York in the mid-1840s, there they began to...
“The fight must not cease; you must see that it does not stop. Failure is impossible”. Throughout SusanB. Anthony’s life she had challenges to overcome and with each challenge, she seemed to elevate herself more in the campaign for woman. She would not let any obstacle get in her way of becoming or doing what she wanted to do. Overcoming and pushing on seemed to be her best character traits. She knew what she wanted, and she was determined to work hard and smart to get what she wanted. All through her life and even after her death, she never stopped fighting for what she believed in.
SusanB. Anthony was born on February 15, 1820. She was born in Adams, Massachusetts to the Quakers, Daniel and Lucy Anthony. Susan was the second of seven children born to the Anthony’s. She had three sisters and two brothers. Her father had started his own cotton mill in Adams, but he soon out grew it. He moved his family to a nearby town of Battenville, New York where he was able to prosper. Her grandparents lived with them as well and Susan was very much like her Grandmother Read. (Weisberg 23-25)
Unlike many families, the Anthony’s always believed in equal rights for both boys and girls. Because of this, Susan was able to get the same education as her two brothers. The...
SusanBAnthony was one of the most influential women in American history. Susan was not only influential but heroic in her doings as an abolitionist, educational reformer, labor activist, and last but most definitely not last a women’s rights activist. Susan believed that the same rights should be granted to all regardless of race or sex. This mindset was a complete one eighty from the way of thinking back then.
SusanBAnthony born in Adams Massachusetts on February 18, 1880. ("National Women's History Museum.") She was raised in the tight knit home of Lucy reed and Daniel Anthony where men and women spoke equally. Being raised in this type of atmosphere Susan had thoughts that everyone treated men and women equally.

She received a Quaker education and worked as a teacher for a decade joining the other poorly paid women in the education system. ("SusanB. Anthony Biography.") When Anthony tried to speak at the New York State Teachers' Association meeting in 1853, her attempt sparked a half-hour debate among the men about whether it was...
It is impossible to believe there was a time that women did not have an input on anything in this world. Women did not have a say in anything in the 1800’s, they were just people that did whatever “man” told them to do without any questions asked. There are a lot of powerful people in history that stood up for what they felt was important, like women’s rights. Women by the name of SusanB.Anthony wanted to have change in this world for women that wanted to be a part of society.
Born on February 15, 1820 in Adams, Massachusetts on a farm house, Anthony was one of eight children in a house with a father who was strict and was very much in the civil rights movement. At a young age she would go through something that most women today will never understand. She was taken of district school by her father when he found out that she could not get educated in mathematics because of the fact she was a “ girl “ ( was later sent to a boarding school in Philadelphia ). Since she did not go to public school her father decided to home school her and her sisters. Her father taught her and her sisters to be independent and self-discipline. Anthony was expected to help her mother with domestic chores. Anthony’s dad owned his own cotton-mill where he had his wife and family help maintain the mill endless

...SusanB. Anthony 1820 – 1906
Through her accomplishments and persistent dedication to “the cause”, the woman suffrage movement, SusanB. Anthony became one of the most historically significant figures in American history. Her life long fight for women’s rights led to the 1920 passage of the Nineteenth Amendment.
Born in 1820, Susan was one of six children to Daniel and LucyAnthony. Daniel, a 6th generation Quaker, believed in equal treatment for boys and girls. Although in the 1800’s most girls did not receive a formal education, because of her father’s belief of equality, all four of the Anthony girls were given the same opportunity as their two brothers and was able to attend a private Quaker boarding school in Philadelphia (World Book Encyclopedia). The temperance movement, anti-slavery movement and women’s rights were some of the reform movements that the Anthony family was very active in. Her knowledge and involvement with these movements became the foundation on which she built her life.
In 1852, Ms. Anthony attended a Sons of Temperance state convention and because she is a woman she was not allowed to speak in the temperance rally, instead she was told to “listen and learn”. Due to her experience at this state convention as well as her meeting with Elizabeth C. Stanton, she attended her first women’s...
...The Right of All Citizens: What Makes an Effective Argument for Women's Rights?
On November 5, 1872, SusanB. Anthony, a well-known leader in the women’s rights movement, along with several other women, entered the West End News Depot and cast their ballot. The women had all registered in the previous days; Anthony had registered to vote November 1, 1872 at a local barbershop, along with her three sisters. Even though the inspectors refused her initial demand to register, Anthony used her power of persuasive speaking and her relationship with well-respected persons of authority, such as Judge Henry R. Selden, to obtain her registration, informing the inspectors that if they did not register the women, they would press charges through the criminal court and sue for damages. When she was arrested for her illegal actions two weeks later, she went willingly with the officer, demanding that they treated her equal to male criminals (Linder, “Trial”). Before and after her illegal vote, SusanB. Anthony used her eloquence and strength as a speaker to deliver various thought-provoking speeches on why women legally have the right to vote and her 1873 speech, “On Women’s Right to Vote,” is no exception.
The tone and structure of SusanB. Anthony’s speech established an effective basis for her other supports. She used...
...ENS 106 Effective Speech
SusanB. Anthony Speech 1873
SusanB. Anthony was born on February 15, 1820 and she was one of the many women in the nineteenth century to fight for women’s rights. She would travel all over the nation and create petitions for the right for women to vote and also slavery. She was an abolitionist, an educational reformer, a labor activist, and of course a women’s right campaigner. As brave as she was, she voted illegally in the presidential election of 1872 in Rochester, New York and arrested. They had fined her 100 dollars but did not imprison her, which she refused to pay. The next year, Susan presented a speech explaining and demanding that women had the right vote just as much as men did. She states, “It was we, the people; not we, the white male citizens; nor yet we, the male citizens; but we, the whole people, who formed the Union. (1873)”. She pointed out that the constitution itself stated that people as a whole would help and contribute to justice and establishment in the United States.
Most importantly, Susan Anthony’s speech in 1873 was effective in every way. Although, it took as long as 14 years after her speech for women to have the lawful right to vote and exactly one hundred years after her birth, she campaigned and petitioned all over the nation and was part of several organizations against slavery, women’s suffrage...

Her father, Daniel Anthony, was a stern man, a Quaker abolitionist and cotton manufacturer. He believed in guiding his children, not directing them. He did not allow them to experience the childish amusements of toys, games, and music, which were seen as distractions from the Inner Light. Instead he enforced self-discipline.
Susan learned to read and write at the age of three. In 1826, the Anthony's moved from Massachusetts to Battensville, New York. Where Susan attended a district school, when the teacher refused to teach Susan long division, she was taken out of school and taught in home school set up by her father.
