The anti-American sentiment from now on increased in Iran. Another fuel to ant-American sentiment was the Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962. United States involved in Cuba to avoid Soviet Union establishing nuclear weapons. The Six-Day War or called 1967 Arab-Israel War, which the war fought between Israel and neighboring small states in Arab such as Egypt and Syria. For this time, US fully supported Israel to fight against their neighboring small states, Arab.
The article I will be discussing is “The Myth of American Isolationism” by Bear Braumoeller. The article addresses the mistaken belief that America was a highly isolationist state during the interwar period. Braumoeller argues the exact opposite, that America was involved in European affairs and the rest of the world. The article effectively argues that American isolationism in this period is a misconception. It is important because understanding the truth behind the false belief allows for a better understanding of the era as a whole and its relevance to current policy.
Islamophobia Today, America is faced with many issues whether it be fighting with your best friend to Trump. There are things that are problems that a lot of people aren’t even aware of. Or even worse, they don’t think it’s a big deal because they support in one way or another. An incident that caused many problems that is still brought up years and years later is 9/11. There’s more to it than just the attack.
The people who practice Islam have experienced hate crimes, the travel ban, and intense security at airports because of stereotypes that have become associated with the religion. It is common today for people to assume that all Muslims are terrorists because of the recent terrorist attacks. This is not the only way people in America make assumptions based off stereotypes. The film Remember the Titans clearly shows discrimination between race in America in the 1970s.
for making a propaganda for Iraq war in 2003 , the media was directed to present specific information about Iraq . They presented in the TV shows that there is terrorism in Iraq and that is very dangerous for the U.S and the people around the world . (Kumar, 2006). After the attacks , the policy-makers in the U.S claimed announced that they should fight terrorism and Jihad in Iraq .also they said that they want to stop using mass destruction weapons in Iraq ,which used by Saddam Hussein and they should defeat the Qaida which threaten the world. Actually the main reason for the U.S to invade Iraq was its oil.
There are a large number of people who believe that Islam is not compatible with Western culture. This belief is likely due to a combination of things. Radical Islamic terrorist groups are the first reason. Why would a religion of peace be able to produce groups that are capable of such heinous crimes against humanity? Another reason is that many Islamic countries practice Sharia Law which is not at all in line with western values as it oppresses women and homosexuals.
Even with this military build up, and Europe being close to war, Americans wanted nothing to do with it. In fact, according to the article, The 1930’s: Government and Politics: Overview, “ One poll revealed that 64 percent of Americans supported isolationist policies as late as 1937.” Americans still did not want to entangle themselves in European affairs and wars. If America were to get their way, Europe was going to have to deal with the war themselves. However, as tensions grew in Europe, America felt more pressure to help. The allies wanted America to help them and take on a global role.
Indeed, anti-Arab racism seems to be almost officially sanctioned. You can make generalised and racist statements of Arab people that would not be tolerated by any other group. At the heart of how this new American orientalism operates is a threatening and demonizing figure of the Islamic terrorists that is emphasized by journalists and Hollywood. Now, Said recognizes that terrorism exists as a result of the violent political situation of the Middle East but he argues that there is a lot more going on there that is misunderstood or not seen by the people of the West. The result of the media’s focus on one negative aspect alone means that all the people of Islamic world come to be understood in the same negative and paranoid way, i.e.
Political With the growing phenomenon of ‘Islamophobia’ (Dislike or Prejudice of Muslim or Islamic people) within the western world primarily caused by a high degree of misunderstanding in the west of both the religion itself as well as the Arabic language, a deep need for a bridge between the nations of the west and the middle-east was created. This in combination with the previously mentioned requirements by the United Nations for a thorough and universal real-time translation service for United Nation’s meetings are both potential contributing factions technological and entrepreneurial
