Question and answer
What were the results of Napoleon's invasion of Egypt? How did Egypt respond to this European aggression?
The French forces took Alexandria without difficulty, defeated the Mamluk army at Shubra Khit and Imbabah, and entered Cairo on July 25. Murad Bey fled to Upper Egypt while Ibrahim Bey and the Ottoman viceroy went to Syria. [ Mamluk rule in Egypt collapsed. Nevertheless, Napoleon's position in Egypt was precarious. The French controlled only the Delta and Cairo; Upper Egypt was the preserve of the Mamluks and the bedouins. In addition, Britain and the Ottoman government joined forces in an attempt to defeat Napoleon and drive him out of Egypt. On August 1, 1798, the British fleet under
Lord Nelson annihilated the French ships as they lay at anchor at Abu Qir, thus isolating Napoleon's forces in Egypt. On September 11, Sultan Selim III declared war on France. On October 21, the people of Cairo rioted against the French, whom they regarded as occupying strangers, not as liberators. The rebellion had a religious as well as a national character and centered around Al Azhar mosque. Its leaders were the ulama, religiously trained scholars, whom Napoleon had tried to woo to the French side. During this period, the populace began to regard the ulama not only as moral but also as political leaders. The French forces in Cairo surrendered on June 18, 1801, and Menou himself surrendered at Alexandria on September 3. By the end of September, the last French forces had left the country. ]

Weegy: On 6 June 1936, Snr.Jose Maria Gil Robles, Leader of the Spanish Catholic Party, the CEDA, rose to address the Spanish Cortez or parliament. [ He laid bare the parlous state of Spain when he noted that during the four months the left wing Popular Front government had been in power 160 churches had been burned to the ground and there had been 269 mainly political murders and 1287 assaults. No less than 69 political centres had been wrecked and 10 newspaper offices had been sacked. There had been 113 general strikes and 228 partial strikes. ‘Let us not deceive ourselves!’ said Gil Robles, ‘A country can live under a Monarchy or a Republic, with a parliamentary or a presidential system, under Communism or Fascism! But it cannot live in anarchy. Now, alas, Spain is in anarchy. And we are today present at the funeral service of democracy!’ This stinging criticism of the government was taken up by the Monarchist leader, Snr.Jose Calvo Sotelo, who claimed that the disorder in Spain was due to the flawed Constitution of 1931. ‘Against this sterile State,’ he proclaimed, ‘I am proposing the integrated State, which will bring economic justice, and which will say with due authority: “no more strikes, no more lock-outs, no more usury, no more capitalist abuses, no more starvation wages, no more political salaries gained by happy accident, no more anarchic liberty, no more criminal conspiracies against full production,” The national production will be for the benefit of all classes, all parties, all interests. This State many may call Fascist; if this indeed be the Fascist State, then I, who believe in it, proudly declare myself a Fascist!” Reports of this debate reached every corner of Spain but Calvo Sotelo’s words were widely misconstrued, as was his call to the Spanish armed forced to be prepared to rise to the defense of Spain against anarchy. On Monday, 13 July, Jose Calvo Sotelo was murdered by members of the Assault Guard, Spain’s ... (More)

Explain the major aims of British raj policy in India
Weegy: The Raj began in 1858, when the rule of the British East India Company was transferred to the Crown, and lasted until 1947, when the British Indian Empire was partitioned into two sovereign states, India and the Pakistan. [ The three main decision makers were the Secretary of State for India, a member of the British cabinet, based at India Office in London. He was was formally advised by the Council of India. The chief official in India was the Viceroy, based in Calcutta and after 1912 in Delhi. He was supported by about 1000 senior members of the Indian Civil Service, who effectively rules in local areas. The third triumvir (after 1895) was the commander in chief of the Indian Army, which was largely officered by Britons. The three men generally cooperated, although the explosive confrontation between Viceroy Curzon and General Kitchener led to Curzon's resignation in 1905. Since the British army often rotated its professionals in India, there built up in Britain itself a large base of men and their families with experience or connections in India. They comprised a vocal lobby in Britain on behalf of the Raj, and were a power in the Conservative Party; a key spokesman was Winston Churchill. ] (More)

The rebellion proved to be an important watershed in Indian and British Empire history. It led to the dissolution of the East India Company, and forced the British to reorganize the army, the financial system, and the administration in India, through passage of the Government of India Act 1858.
