Foreign policy has been a divisive topic in the United States, especially since the devastating terrorist attack in Paris. The fallout of this tragedy has been used to support the denial of Syrian refugee immigration into this country. Despite the horrifying events that have happened in France, I disagree with this stance. Syrian refugees should be allowed to seek shelter in the United States. Their presence would be a great boon to this country, despite popular notions to the contrary.
Numerous sides have sprung up, with most countries in Eastern Europe refusing Syrian refugees on the basis of security policies, while some countries in Western Europe such as Germany expressed support for refugees seeking refuge from the terror and chaos in Syria. To many, the refugee crisis has no clear end for the war in Syria itself its getting more complicated. Syrian refugees come to Europe with a lot of reasons, to have a better life, better security and to escape the fear and terror in war zones. One cannot
The United States Embassy bombing has since had a lasting impact on issues foreign to the American public, mainly political terrorism, introducing the significance contributed to many valuable lessons in emergency response and internal support. The significance of the United States Embassy bombing contributed to valuable lessons learned by the governments
Anti-Muslim hate crimes have been recently rising in the US. Hate crimes are destructive, and harmful to the victim. A hate crime is an offensive like murder, arson, or vandalism that is inflicted on the victim because of the victims race, color, religion, or natural origin. Attack numbers on Muslims like 5,479 in 2014, and 5,850 in 2015 are not right and continuing to increase. The president-elect Donald Trump has expressed his belief on Muslims by calling for a ban on all Muslims entertaining the US.
In the wake of the recent Paris attacks the argument of allowing refugees into the UK has been a greatly debated topic and has been argued incessantly in the media. A common argument that is given is that, allowing the refugees into the UK will bring terrorists attacks to the country, people believe that hidden amongst the refugees are terrorists and that bringing so many Muslims into the country will cause destruction to the nation. They believe Muslims are the root cause of terrorism and terrorist acts however there is evidence to show Islam’s stance on terrorism and show that allowing refugees into the country should be a moral obligation as It is inhumane of the people of this country to neglect men, women and children who are fleeing severe war and persecution in
President Bush and Prime Minister Blair also had to use their speeches to turn the world from terrorism to a more positive course. To achieve this goal, both Bush and Blair had to employ tone and rhetorical strategies in order to appeal to their audiences. The tone of a piece of writing is often seen as the attitude the author has towards a particular subject or audience, and it is shown through the diction or viewpoint of the writer on a particular subject. It can affect different people in varying ways like making people feel sad or devastated. The terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, were some of the most devastating events that have ever taken place on United States soil.
In the 1800’s Manifest Destiny became a widely-held belief among settlers, their mentality was that they were destined to expand across North America pushing the natives out of their land. This attitude among western settlers fueled the removal of Native Americans and war with Mexico. The thinking of some of these settlers was both inevitable and justified by their God to expand and take more land with no limit. Geographically speaking, modern day America is the result of this “Manifest Destiny”. This was also happening around the time the United States experienced its second “Great Awakening”, which was another protestant religious revival movement happening in the early 19th century.
How is this? America alienates and demonizes Muslims and makes them feel like they do not belong and this makes it easier for terrorist groups, such as ISIS, to recruit by making individuals feel like America is the enemy and by giving them a sense of belonging. In this paper, I will argue that Islamophobia and anti-Muslim sentiment largely exist in American society through the media, politics, popular culture, and social media; and as it continues to grow, it affects Muslims in America and it damages American communities and
Religion is what our nation is fundamentally built upon, all the way back to when the pilgrims came over on the Mayflower bringing their puritan based beliefs with them. What is interesting is that these beliefs from so long ago are still traced all throughout the everyday lives of Americans. It is asked, how is this possible, when the world is so different today than it was fifty or one hundred years ago? The answer is literature. Written works have made it
The conflict is not confined to discrimination against minorities such as African Americans or Hispanics, but also involves Caucasian charges of reverse discrimination in heated topics such as Affirmative Action. Lately, persons of Arabic decent have become victims of discrimination as a result of the on-going terrorist wars. What perpetuates the issue, to a degree, is that there are two sides involved with each pointing fingers of accusation at the other. Laws are passed addressing many of the ills of American racial discrimination but the cure is not to be found in courts alone. With each new generation of American youth, the old generation imparts some of their prejudiced views.
If tensions do keep rising and another Cold War breaks out many Americans might not feel safe in their own homes. If you add this and terrorism together you will get a lot of americans who are upset at their national security and will want more security for themselves. This leads to more problems like airports making bag checks more stricts or require a full body search for everyone which causes many people to become angry. Another big issue with the possible return of cold war tensions with russia is nuclear weapons. NATO does a good job in
As a result, 12 people associated with the magazine were killed in a series of terrorist attacks. Surprisingly enough, the publishers still continued to include offensive cartoons in their magazine. In response to the September 2015 edition, many who support Charlie Hebdo came to the defense of the publishers and made the assertion that those who do not understand satire should not read Charlie Hebdo (MorroccoWorldNews.com). Although satire is often used to criticize political issues, there is a very thin line between satire and discrimination. There is no definitive line for Charlie Hebdo, and satire cannot be used as a reason to
The topic around immigration has been an ongoing controversy in many countries and especially in America. Based on the current election of Donald Trump as the president, views and opinions on immigration are drastically on the uprise and becoming a major debate for everyone. Although some critics argue of the negative impact immigrants bring to the country, others comment that immigrants actually bring values to the society and culture as a whole. In the context of today 's society in America, some people are viewing immigrants as a threat to their culture and thus demand their government to prohibit the entering of not only illegal immigrants but also legal immigrants, thus questioning to what extent a country should restrict or accept legal
The only thing clear is that a solution for the problem has to be provided. It is understandable that for many, the enforcement of the border and the implementation of stricter securities measures are critical. After all, concerns about the current illegal immigration situation goes further than just people being in the United States without the proper documentation. These concerns are also about the constant increment of drug trafficking across the border and even worse the infiltration of members pertaining to terrorist organizations like Al-Qaida and the Islamic State in order to commit terrorist attack in national soil. Also it is understandable that many believe that the current eleven million of undocumented immigrant are more of a burden for tax payers, since it is believed that most of these immigrant, take advantage of the existing welfare polices, abuse assistance programs, and do not pay taxes on the income they generate.
