One of the most famous wars in our Arab history is the Al-Bassous war, which was fought for a camel. Two tribes from Najd in the Arabian Peninsula before the Islamic era clashed relentlessly over the course of four decades in a fierce war, in which a person fought his cousin, plundered lands, plundered property and hundreds died, the cause of the conflict? .. a camel.
What began as a petty family conflict spiraled out of control, and the Bassus War soon became one of the totally meaningless, and perhaps most absurd, conflict in human history.
And unlike many wars, which are of complex origins to say the least, there is no doubt about the source and the primary cause of this war, which began when an elderly woman belonging to the Bakr tribe called Al-Basous went to visit a young woman named Jalila bint Marah, who is her niece, and with her. The son of her sister Jassas bin Murrah, and her neighbor Saad bin Shams al-Jarmi al-Qudai, who had a camel called “Sarab”. As for Jalila, she was married to Kulaib, the leader of the tribe of Bani Tagleb, and as is customary, the visitors arrived on the back of a camel, so the old lady allowed the camel to graze after they landed.
But Klipp was a master of the Maad tribes and a proud king over them claiming to protect his lands and properties, so upon seeing an unknown camel among his camels, he immediately carried his bow and killed it. Al-Bassous soon learned of this and was not happy with what had happened at all. Rather, she summoned her nephew, Jassas, and asked him to preserve her honor.
Certainly, Jassas responded to his aunt's instructions and, without hesitation, killed Klipp, who killed the camel. This triggered a series of violent attacks between the rival tribes, without the blood kinship having any kindness to make peace.
Even the mediation of strangers was not able to reach a peaceful solution to this conflict, but on the contrary, the story says that an ally of the Bakr tribe sent his son to reach an understanding with the tribe of Tazzalab, where sacrifices were supposed to be offered in line with local customs at that time to stop the bloodshed. But what happened had a completely opposite effect, as the Banu Tazzabell killed the ambassador of peace, which brought a third tribe into the war, and its leader pledged to discomfort until the demise of the Bani defeated those on the ground. Perhaps this thirst for revenge put an end to this meaningless war. . After a long time the three parties lost large numbers of their people and were all tired of fighting, and perhaps they forgot in the first place why they were fighting and for what.
Since there was no real winner, but only losers, the conflict did not enter the list of major wars, but the war of Bassous remains with a flawed history as it is the embodiment of a futile battle, and it is a moral lesson that shows the dangers of seeking blind revenge, and always resorting to diplomatic solutions.
Although the Flagstaff (or as the Hun Hickey Mutiny) is not a war without meaning - especially for Native New Zealanders - it is a true example of conflicts that could have been easily avoided with some rationality and a touch of diplomacy, and with a little cautious calm perhaps The small town of Kororica could spare it the bloody fighting that befell it in the 1840s, save up to 200 people and improve relations between the British and Maori who challenged the authority of the colonialists.
Certainly the indigenous Māori people who live in the Bay of Islands region of New Zealand have certainly had reason to feel upset. After some of their leaders, including the well-known tribal leader (Hon Hickey), initially agreed to the British presence in the Bay of Islands, they would become significantly less satisfied after the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi in 1840. This agreement had a tremendous impact on the local economy by keeping fishing boats in mind. Whales are far from Corurica and the Bay of Islands in general. The acute tensions between the British and Maori reached their peak in 1844, and in July of that year he decided to send a clear signal of local sentiment by lowering the British flag on the city from its mast.
Instead of accepting the matter and making it pass peacefully to prevent bloodshed, British forces launched an assault on the town that included some acts of sabotage and quickly raised a new flag. (Hon Heiki) returned to the city and took down this flag as well, so a third flag was raised and it was lowered in turn. Then he put up a fourth flag but this time fortified with iron, and on orders from London, the British (Hon Hickey) and his supporters warned that any further acts of sabotage would not go unpunished. Words like these were difficult for the Maori and a wonderful failure of democracy, so instead of calming tensions it made worse, and on March 11, 1845, what began as a minor side quarrel became something much more dangerous.
As a reaction that may not be calculated, (Hon Hiki) set out with his tribe to the city and killed its innocent inhabitants, as the British garrison was attacked and soon overrun, in total an estimated 164 Maori fighters were killed along with 94 British, so what was directly caused by the launching of some flags He sparked a war of ten difficult months, and the British might have felt at the time that imposing the prestige of the empire on the inhabitants of a small island was worth it, suppressing the rebellion and thwarting any similar future actions. However the British never raised their flag again at the town of Kororica, as they presented it as a symbolic victory to the Maori people.
Real diplomats are supposed to show dexterity and good sense at all times, but unfortunately they are often ordinary people in the wrong place, and history books are full of examples of ambassadors and other dignitaries who have made stupid and offensive nonjudgmental mistakes. But it can be said that no diplomats acted as gross stupidity as that of Sir (Frederick Mitchell Hodgson) in March 1900. This massive weakness in diplomacy led to what is now known as the War of the Golden Seat, which by its end caused nearly 3,000 casualties. And yes, the incident that started the war did involve a gold seat.
But not any golden seat, for the Ashanti Empire in West Africa (present-day Ghana) the seat represented their peoples, but rather, it mediated their flag. Although their king, (Privy I), was exiled with the advent of the British, the imposing seat not only embodied his permanent authority, but also the power and power of the rulers who came before him and those who would join him. In short, there was nothing sacred to the Ashanti people more than the golden seat, and any reasonable diplomat would have known this detail, but unfortunately not Sir (Frederick).
After British forces succeeded in putting down the uprisings and small skirmishes with the African Ashanti people, Sir (Frederick) was tasked with leading a small delegation of soldiers and dignitaries to visit the city of Kumasi. At first the visit seemed to be going well, so local children sang the British national anthem of Sir and his wife, and Ashanti leaders gathered to hear what the representative of the empire would recite. But then, things went completely wrong. Not only did Sir (Frederick) ask that he be given the golden seat to sit on that day, but he also asked that he be transferred to Queen Victoria in London.
Within minutes of the ambassador uttering these words, the crowd gathered and began to revolt after a local leader hurried to his home and gathered a group of men willing to fight the British. The British retreated to their fortress, and, being unable to confront the British at the military level, they tried to starve their opponents. The plan succeeded when the British began succumbing to hunger and disease, at which point Al-Seer realized that survival means annihilation, so he and his wife and about 100 people tried to flee, to find the way and be able to get help.
The British chose to take revenge. Many of the rebels were persecuted and the city of Kumasi was already annexed by the British and became part of the empire, but they did not mistreat its inhabitants, the Ashanti people enjoyed much more freedom than most other countries under British imperial rule, and most importantly, the British did not put their hands. On the golden seat, which means that the Ashanti people lost the battle, but they preserved their dignity and deserved the moral victory with losses estimated at two thousand of their people and a thousand British soldiers.
