comment What was the practical reason of the formation of BAKSAL?
Is your question "What caused the destabilization?" or "Why create BAKSAL?" I think the second question has been answered. Diversity of opinions (news papers, political parties) does make it difficult to coordinate resources, agendas, and goals.

Some people think it makes perfect sense to abolish dissenting opinions to create consensus and reconstruct a country.

While interesting, I don't think this answers the question.

comment Why do more historians state Rome was a superpower, than Persia?
@T.E.D - I think so. I also feel like I'm being a jerk, so I shall do my best to shut up about this. Someone else may come up with a clever way to answer the question as asked, but to me it is a kind of logical fallacy.

comment Why do more historians state Rome was a superpower, than Persia?
I held my tongue given @T.E.D's courteous edit, but I've looked at this question multiple times, and I think that it is impossible to say why many historians believe X unless we know who they are. I don't mean to be obnoxious about this, but I believe in the general case it is impossible to answer why a group of people hold an opinion unless you know who the group of people are. Usually when a group offers an opinion, they tell you why they hold the opinion (usually at greater detail than you want). But if you don't know who holds the opinion, any answers are mere guesses.

comment Where and when was the shortest calendar day in history, due to DST and calendar changes, etc?
I'm not sure that the answer to this question relies on history. Might be more appropriate to astronomy or some politics/governance area. Can you solve this with historical sources and methods? (And if you solve it, is the answer trivial or meaningful?) This is an interesting question, and I'd like to know the answer. I'm just not sure it is a History question.

comment What historical reasons did the Nazis give for hating the Jews? How did they identify non-practicing Jews?
There are two very different questions here. The first question assumes that Nazi ideology is based on historical reasons, which is implausible and may be unanswerable. (Did the Nazi's do things because of history, or did they do things and then use history to justify?) The second question has to do with the principles that the Nazi's used to implement their oppression, and assumes that they were interested in accuracy or precision in identifying Jews. I find that dubious. I think you're chasing red herrings.

comment What factors contributed to Jews moving out of the Middle East?
I would take this question more seriously if the assertions were cited; without citations, I remain unconvinced that any such migration occurred.
