Richmondshire

during the Middle Ages. Further complicating the political landscape were the competing ambitions played out in both Brittany and Richmondshire; Plantagenet Richmondshire under John of Lancaster, 1st Duke of Bedford supported English claims to the French throne, whilst Capet Brittany opposed this. During the Wars of the Roses, Richmond allied itself with the House of Lancaster under the Tudor earls (Tudor dynasty), themselves supported by the Duke of Brittany. As a Lancastrian, he supported the overthrow of Richard by Henry Bolingbroke and Bolingbroke's coronation as King Henry IV (Henry IV of England) in October 1399. He was rewarded with an appointment as Earl Marshal for life (but resigned in 1412). He was also invested as a Privy Counsellor (Parliament of England) before 4 December 1399. Charles Mosley, editor, ''Burke's Peerage and Baronetage'', 106th edition, 2 volumes (Crans, Switzerland: Burke's Peerage (Genealogical Books) Ltd, 1999), volume 1, page 14. In 1403, he was made a Knight of the Garter, taking the place left vacant by the death of Edmund of Langley, 1st Duke of York. King Henry IV (Henry IV of England) endowed him with the honour and lordship of Richmond (Richmondshire) for life. Like the first lords of Richmond (Richmond, North Yorkshire) and Peter II of Savoy (Peter of Savoy, Earl of Richmond) before him, Ralph was endowed with Richmond, but without a title. The North Riding is now represented in the districts of Hambleton, Richmondshire, Harrogate (Harrogate (borough)), Ryedale, and Scarborough (Scarborough (borough)) in North Yorkshire, with parts in Middlesbrough (Middlesbrough (borough)), Stockton-on-Tees (Stockton-on-Tees (borough)) (south of the River Tees), Teesdale (Teesdale (district)), and Redcar and Cleveland. The principal towns are Middlesbrough, Redcar, Whitby, Scarborough (Scarborough, North Yorkshire) and Northallerton. F. R. Youngs, ''Local Administrative Units of England'', Vol.II, Northern England, London, 1991 Proposed resurrections On three occasions a re-use of the North Riding for local government purposes has been considered. During the 1990s UK local government reform, the Banham Commission (John Banham) suggested uniting Richmondshire, Hambleton, Ryedale, and Scarborough (Scarborough (borough)) districts in a new unitary authority called North Riding of Yorkshire. Later, the government proposed renaming the county of North Yorkshire the North Riding of Yorkshire.

However, state media again ran propaganda-based stories, saying that Western powers and their close political friends, who state media call the "Fishmongers Group", were "working overtime to destroy the economy, mutilate the Zimbabwe dollar, foment civil unrest and then dangle a rescue package to win the support of gullible politicians."

Mecca

al-Ḥiǧāz '', literally "the barrier") is a region in the west of present-day Saudi Arabia. Defined primarily by its western border on the Red Sea, it extends from Haql on the Gulf of Aqaba to Jizan. Its main city is Jeddah, but it is probably better known for the Islamic holy cities of Mecca and Medina. As the site of Islam's holy places the Hejaz has significance in the Arab and Islamic historical and political landscape. The region is so

In the end, Lee got money and permission together for filming in Mecca. The 1979 Revolution (Iranian Revolution) in Iran radically transformed the political landscape in the Middle East, as the hereditary monarchy of the Shah of Iran (Mohammad Reza Pahlavi) was deposed in favor of a Shi'a theocracy. In the same year, anti-monarchist dissidents in Saudi Arabia seized the Grand Mosque (Grand Mosque Seizure) in Mecca, and accused the Saudi royal family of being insufficiently Islamic and so unfit to rule the Kingdom. Fearing that the 1979 Revolution in Iran could lead to similar Islamic upheaval in Saudi Arabia, Fahd spent considerable sums after ascending the throne in 1982 to support Saddam Hussein's Iraq in its war with Iran. Obituary: King Fahd, ''BBC News'', 1 August 2005. Retrieved 10 June 2008. He also changed his royal title to "custodian of the two holy mosques" (Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques), and took steps to support the conservative Saudi religious establishment, including spending millions of dollars on religious education, further distancing himself from his inconvenient past.

Representation of some genuine experience Even in that part of the book which might be supposed to represent some genuine experience there are the plainest traces that another work has been made use of, more or less - we might almost say as a framework to fill up. This is the itinerary of the German knight Wilhelm von Boldensele, written in 1336 at the desire of Cardinal Hélie de Talleyrand-Périgord (Hélie de Talleyrand-Périgord, Bishop of Auxerre). A cursory comparison of this with Mandeville leaves no doubt that the latter has followed its thread, though digressing on every side, and too often eliminating the singular good sense of the German traveller. We may indicate as examples Boidensele's account of Cyprus, of Tyre (Tyre, Lebanon) and the coast of Palestine, of the journey from Gaza to Egypt, passages about Babylon of Egypt (Babylon Fortress), about Mecca, the general account of Egypt, the pyramids (Giza pyramid complex), some of the wonders of Cairo, such as the slave-market, the chicken-hatching stoves, and the apples of paradise, i.e. plantains, the Red Sea, the convent on Sinai (Sinai Peninsula), the account of the church of the Holy Sepulchre, etc. * 620: Muhammad's night journey (Isra and Mi'raj to Jerusalem (Islamic sources) * 624: Jerusalem loses its place as the Qibla (focal point for Muslim prayers) to Mecca, 18 months after the Hijra (Hijra (Islam)) (Muhammad's migration to Medina) * c.625: According to Sahih al-Bukhari, Muhammad ordained the Al-Aqsa Mosque as one of the three holy mosques of Islam Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Book 21, Number 281: "Do not set out on a journey except for three Mosques i.e. Al-Masjid-AI-Haram, the Mosque of Allah's Apostle, and the Mosque of Al-Aqsa, (Mosque of Jerusalem)." * Embattled energy tycoon Mikhail Khodorkovsky has quit as CEO of Yukos. War on Terrorism : Saudi Arabian authorities have broken up, for the second time, a militant ring in Mecca amid a wide crackdown on Islamic extremists (Islamism). The police combated militants in the streets of the holy city of Mecca, killing two of the suspects and uncovering a large cache of weapons. The raid on two buildings in Mecca's al-Share'a neighborhood foiled a terrorist (terrorism) operation "that did not respect the sanctity of holy places and the month of Ramadan". Paul Bremer says that attacks on coalition forces in Iraq will get worse unless intelligence improves; he says several hundred terrorists have entered Iraq from neighbouring countries. Security officials in Saudi Arabia order 4600 extra troops into Mecca to provide increased security during Ramadan, saying that additional attacks could occur at any moment. Questions surround Yasser Arafat after further allegations about money moved out of the West Bank to secret bank accounts. highly publicized cases of deadly panic occurred during massive public events. The layout of Mecca was extensively redesigned by Saudi authorities in an attempt to eliminate frequent stampedes, which kill an average of 250 pilgrims every year.
