As Osama grew up he becomes involved in Islamic radical groups and helped the mujahedin, a group of guerrilla fighters in Islamic territories, fight against the Soviet Union in Afghanistan by campaigning and providing funds for them. I believe this war with the Soviet Union is what really evoked Osama Bin Laden’s hatred of the US. The US’s involvement in this war is something he will carry with him until the day he died. The Soviet Union invading Afghanistan posed a big threat to Bin Laden. Because of his religious beliefs, he believed Afghanistan and the surrounding countries should adopt an Islamic regime, not a communist one.
(BS-3) Americans in Afghanistan have bombed many locations connected to the Taliban in hopes of creating peace but failed in Nusrat’s case. (BS-2) Innocent people in Afghanistan have been affected from American bombs, including Najmah. (BS-1) Americans ruined everything many Afghan people loved but seemed to think it is helping. (R) "’If the [U. S. ] base wasn't here, the Taliban wouldn't be attacking us,’ says Kamin Agha, a local truckdriver” (Moreau, Ron,
The morning of Tuesday September 11, 2011 is one of the biggest tradgies of all time. On this specific day four airlines were hijacked by an Islamic group that goes by the name al-Qaeda. The attacks took the lives of 2,996 innocent people, injured nearly 6,000 people, and caused at least $10 billion in infracture and property damage. These attacks, also known as the 9/11 attacks, will forever be remebered as one of the most horrific days for so many people around this world. Initally, al-Qaeda considered targeting nuclear power plants on 9/11, but decided to go against it because they feared it would get too out of control.
“Then everyone of you she prepared to carry out his role in the way that would satisfy God.” Bin Ladin makes a claim stating that the work al-Qaeda is performing during the 9/11 attack is one that would “satisfy God”. Bin Ladin uses the emotional appeal I've tried to convince others to join Al-Qaeda and commit the crimes that occurred on 9/11. “Do not seek revenge for yourself. Strike for God's sake.” Bin Ladin manipulates the members Al-Qaeda into thinking that they have an obligation to strike for God's sake. He teaches others the Americans are the enemy and probably clarifies throughout the speech that their terrorist attacks come with clear understanding of what might happen to them when it is over and who they are doing it for.
Who is the first person that comes to mind when hearing a word relative to terrorism? Have you ever thought about the reasons as to why terrorist attacks occur, and the beliefs behind them? As individuals we perceive things being right or wrong, the severity of an action, and the importance of something but these are all interpreted differently based on a variety of factors including a major one being culture. Osama bin Laden’s values are based upon Islamic fundamentalism and his beliefs are the reasons why he was famously known as the world’s most wanted terrorist. Born to “Muslim parents on the Arabian Peninsula in the Malaaz District of Riyadh” in 1957, Osama bin Laden was raised in a wealthy Saudi family, 1 of 52 children (Aboul-Enein 1).
The terrorist attacks of September 11th, 2001 can in a certain way of thinking be justified. The world is often seen through two different sets of eyes, those of the persons or person in control of world affairs and events and differently of the ones on the opposite side of those world affair and events actions. One could say the United States was due to have a terrorist attack around in the nature of the 9/11 attacks due to
Benazir Bhutto had inherited jihad from Zia’s regime. Author said that ISI had strong links with militants and it wanted to move these militants towards Kashmir, then this situation could lead to Indo Pak war, it would be Pakistan based terrorism. In Afghanistan after civil war, Taliban has formed their government and they provided shelter to bin Laden. Now US started to demand to hand over Osama bin Laden and blamed that he is supported by Pakistan. Pakistan tried to convince Taliban to hand over bin Laden to US but Mullah Omer refused to do so and he was committed not to handing over.
Al-Qaeda is an organization of Islamic militants that has declared a "holy war" on Americans, Jews and their allies which was led by Osama Ben Laden. It emerged in Afghanistan in the late 1980s, as Arab volunteers joined US supported Afghan mujahedeen fighting to expel the occupying Soviet forces. It was also blamed for all the deaths that occurred in 9/11. And right after the 9/11 attack, the famous question that was asked internationally is why do these groups hate the US so much that they want to kill its people and eliminate its economic and political power?! However, it is not America that they hate, it is the American foreign policy.
