So if someone doesn't like good we fight them.” said Faruq Khalil Muhammad. This proves that these people are willing to do anything for their religion and that can become very dangerous. Osama Bin Laden was a horrible man in the eyes of most of the world, but served as a role model for some. He was the start of the biggest terrorist group to ever exist and they will do anything to enforce their religion. After he was assassinated, everyone felt a sense of safety and redemption from the 2001 attacks.
Justifying the actions of these terrible people is almost impossible, but learning the origin of suicide bombers, examining their tactics, and discussing their motives will provide a better look inside the mind of a bomber and possibly give an explanation as to why terrorist attacks occur. Although very deadly, suicide bombers
Al Qaeda terrorists hijacked four planes. Two of the planes (American airline flight 11 and united airlines flight 175) Crashed into the north and south towers of world trade center in New York City. One hour and 42 minutes after the crash of the planes both 110 stories towers collapsed resulting fire and the collapsing and damage to the other towers. Including the seven world trade center tower which has 47 stories. It is almost sixteen years since that fear was imposed on us and the age of terror began in earnest.
The fourth plane crashed into an empty field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania. The rescue efforts and excavation of what became known as Ground Zero, but it wasn’t the first time it had been attacked. One World Trade Center was the site of a terrorist bombing on February 26, 1993. A total of 19 terrorists hijacked the four planes on 9/11. All of the men were from nations in the Middle East.
The Passengers of United Flight 93 On Tuesday, September 11, 2001, members of al Qaeda hijacked and crashed four American airliners. This attack on American soil resulted in nearly 1.4 million pounds of debris. The financial impact in New York alone was over $30.5 billion dollars (“22 Facts About 9/11”). It lead to three thousand deaths, including the deaths of first responders such as firemen and policemen (“9/11 Attacks”). This was the largest loss of life by a foreign attack ever on American soil (“22 Facts About 9/11”).
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.
After a while waiting for anyone claiming responsibility for this horrific act it was discovered that an Islamic extremist group Al-Qaeda was responsible for this. Al-Qaeda is located in Saudi Arabia and several other Arab nations. What has the United States of America done to punish the people responsible for 9/11? After it was found that Al-Qaeda was responsible for 9/11 the United States went to war to try to find Al-Qaeda to punish them for what they had done to us. In 2011 after multiple failed attempts to kill the leader of Al-Qaeda US special forces kill Osama Bin Laden.
The operations, of AQ, target those people (and their property) it considers being kafir (non-Muslims and/or Muslims who are not true to their religion). These targets have been attacked in multiple ways, including the use of suicide bombers. Most of the attacks are conducted simultaneously, possibly to maximise the impact and cause widespread fear among the targeted people (Atran, 2010). Other than the 9/11 attacks, AQ, and its affiliates, have also been known for conducting other spectacular attacks, such as the US embassy bombings in Tanzania and Kenya in August 1998, the 2002 Bali bombings, the 2004 Madrid train bombings and the London bombings in July 2005, resulting in all cases, in high numbers of casualties. The majority of attacks conducted by AQ have been against ‘soft targets’, consisting predominantly civilians and unarmed individuals.
Everyone knows where they were when they first found out. Every TV in America tuned in to see the plane crash into the tower in a fiery explosion. As the Twin Towers fell at 10:00 a.m., fear rose in the hearts of millions of Americans. Emotions running high, they lashed out at the first target that came to mind. Unfortunately, they chose the religion of the terrorists and not the group.
For example, the report cover the terrorist acts are being done by ISIS. (ISIS) “Islamic State of Iraq and Syria." Therefore, this gives people who do not know the truth a wrong image about Islam because all of Islam is being represented as a religion that is all about killing innocent people and terrorism. Also, the terrorist act of 9/11 was described in the news as an act by Islam. As a result, the report misleads the audience to think that all Muslims are terrorists, and people’s knowledge was all based on bias and misrepresentation images by network news.
