Where did colonial leaders get the basis of their philosophy when it came to opposing Britain?
It depends which colonial leaders are in question. For example, American colonial leaders were heavily influenced by John Locke and his follower Baron de Montesquieu. For example, Ghandi, the great Indian colonial leader, was heavily influenced by Jesus and Thoreau as well as by thinkers from the Buddhist and Jainist traditions.

Answer 1 Preserving Religious Plurality: Abu Sufyan and the Meccan Leaders opposed Mohammed because the religious plurality permitted in Mecca was critical for maintaining Mecca's important position along the Arabian trade routes. It was on account of the fact that Mecca was holy site for all Ara…bian faiths that spared it from internal conflict and allowed the flourishing of commerce in the city. Mohammed made clear that he intended to purge the idols from the Kaaba which would cause mass uproar and ended Mecca's position as a holy site for all Arabians. Of course, what Abu Sufyan and the Meccan Leaders did not take into account is that nearly all Arabians would convert to Islam after the fall of Mecca. Keeping His Own Power: Abu Sufyan was one of the Chief Leaders of the Qoreish Tribe and one of the most powerful men in all of Arabia. Should Mecca fall to the Muslims, he would certainly lose substantial power. Many Muslims hold that he was corrupt as well, meaning that he stood to face criminal acts if he were subject to Mohammed's authority. Protecting Commerce: During Mohammed's Medinan Period, Mohammed organized and executed numerous raids on caravans heading to and leaving from Mecca, causing disruption to Arabian trade routes. Since Abu Sufyan and the Meccan Leaders were in charge of Mecca, this was something they would be expected to ameliorate. Polytheism: It was likely that Abu Sufyan and the Meccan Leaders were fighting in defense of Arabian henotheist religions to which they ascribed against Mohammed who would demand that he abandon all gods but Allah. __________________________________________________ Answer 2 Makkah or Mecca was not a holy site before Islam. It was just the focal trading point between the south (e.g. Yemen) and the North (e.g. the current countries of Syria, Lebanon and Turkey). The overwhelming majority of Arabs were polytheists (except minority of Christians and Jews). Hence, the Makkahs were concerned if they convert to Islam to lose this trading merit. However, Makkah (or Mecca) flourished more and more after being an Islamic town and became the holiest city for Muslims. Answer 3 (comment on Answer 2) Mecca was actually a holy site for most of the polytheistic and henotheistic religions of the Arabian Peninsula. This is why all of the idols were placed inside of the Ka'aba. In fact, this status as a holy city was the reason why Mecca was able to establish itself as a non-violent commercial center; Arabs would not fight on holy ground. "In a few short years, Qusayy's system had made him, and those ruling clans of Quraysh who had managed to connect their fortunes with his, enormously wealthy. But there remained even more profit to be made in Mecca. Like all Semitic sanctuaries, the Ka'ba transformed the entire area into sacred ground, making the city of Mecca a neutral zone where fighting among tribes was prohibited and weapons were not allowed." -- Page 26, "No God But God" by Reza Aslan.

There were several reasons the Jewish religious leaders opposed Jesus. They had gotten proud and arrogant, comfortable in their positions of honor (Matthew 23:5-7),viewing Moses and the Law as God's worship, adding their own traditions as they saw fit(Mark 7:5-8), wielding unjust authority and teach…ing falsehoods(Matthew 23:13), entirely forgetting the PURPOSE of the Law in the first place (Galatians 3:24-25). Jesus was the FULFILLMENT of the Law, the long awaited Messiah, and when he died faithful to God, he ENDED the Law Covenant to which the religious leaders were so attached (Colossians 2:13&14). During his ministry Jesus outspokenly exposed their bad works(John 7:7) and reached the heart of many of the members of their synagogues, raising questions and drawing many away from the 'flock'. Because of all this, they accused Jesus of breaking the Law of Moses on several occasions, and finally figured out a way to get rid of him secularly on the grounds of subversive behavior, advocating nonpayment of taxes, and saying he was a king, thus rivaling Caesar....none of which was true. (John 18:36)(Matthew 22:17-21)(John 1:14) After the resurrection of Lazarus, the Jewish religious leaders expressed their fear of loosing their positions, at : John 11:48 ". . .If we let him alone this way, they will all put faith in him, and the Romans will come and take away both our place and our nation.. . " .(John 11:5-8, 45-53). Jesus continued to preach against the teaching of the religious leaders, healing a man on the Sabbath: (John 5:15-18) " The man went away and told the Jews it was Jesus that made him sound in health. So on this account the Jews went persecuting Jesus, because he was doing these things during Sabbath . But he answered them: "My Father has kept working until now, and I keep working." On this account, indeed, the Jews began seeking all the more to kill him, because not only was he breaking the Sabbath but he was also calling God his own Father , making himself equal to God." (Matthew 16:6+12) ( Full Answer )
That the myth is presented through the argumentative interactions between the characters is what shows the philosophy mythology basis of "Antigone" by Sophocles (495 B.C.E. - 405 B.C.E.).

Wise leaders of any country or time period can always help avoid war to settle differences, but unfortunately the differences were becoming so great between Britain and the American colonies that war became inevitable. Unlike Spanish colonies where Spain often granted a large amount of local leaders…hip and autonomy to the colony, England was always very restrictive of her colonies in terms of trade and representation. The leaders of the American colonies were very educated people, and wanted independence from the iron rule of England. On the opposite side, England saw the colonies as strictly a business and moneymaker for them because of the large amounts of resources available. England refused to give local control to the colonies, and continued to pass heavy taxes on the colonists to the point of financial slavery. The colonists had to revolt against this taxation without any form of representation, and there was little chance for agreement between the two sides since both were deeply convinced they were right and the other side was wrong. So, the answer is No! ( Full Answer )

How - they sailed. Why - they thought they could find a better place to live, to trade or to rob.
The Romans always had a very reasonable attitude towards the populations they conquered, allowing trade, religion, traditional ceremonies and all other aspects of life to continue just as before they took over control. The exception was when they considered anything or anyone a threat to their own p…ower - this included any resistance movements such as the " sicarii " in Jerusalem. Jesus became considered a threat to Roman control because they understood He led a rebellious group and proclaimed Himself a King of the Jews (He did not, but that was the Roman understanding). The Romans thought that the Jews awaited a Messiah who would lead an uprising to throw out the Romans and believed that Jesus was that political leader. ( Full Answer )
