In the eastern cultures, the leader assumes supreme status. This is infact one of the major differences between eastern and western cultures. He has a great bearing on the general public.

This series is dedicated to students who wish to evaluate sources and base conclusions upon firsthand evidence chosen from the ideas of inquiring minds. This Sourcebook introduces the peoples of the Middle East. The region that lies between the peninsula of Asia Minor on the north and the Nile on the south is the key to understanding the past and present history of the Mediterranean. From the earliest times to the present Syria, Lebanon, and Israel are the countries that occupy the eastern shores of the Mediterranean and have been a meeting ground for numerous ethnic groups and cultures. These small states were almost never free of invasions by the giants of Asia and Egypt-and so the territory, for all its resources, remained in turmoil. Around 3200 B.C. Egypt was the strongest state the world had seen so far, obtained the fir, cedar, pine, cypress, and juniper, which northern Syria and Lebanon were once rich in-erosion and human devastation have long since stripped their slopes. During the 12th Century B.C. Sea Peoples established themselves at the lower extremity of what is present-day Israel, this was the tribe of the Philistines they subdued the Canaanite population throughout the region between Mount Carmel and Gaza. The Philistines (whose name means "migrants" but now has an abusive significance) were a formidable people who during the mid-11th century B.C. reduced all their neighbors including the Hebrews to impotence at least temporarily and gave the holy land its historic name of Palestine. One of the Hebrew prophets indicated that the Philistines had come from Crete, they did possess strong links to the Cretans and the Mycenaeans, their champion Goliath was Aegean in character, and they spoke Indo-European.
