to 1750 C.E, one factor remained continuous in the relationship between Europe and Islam; war. During this time, the Islamic faith became a great military and political power based around faith. This increased the power held in Muslim hands as well as Europe’s aversion to the political and military superiority of Islam. This aversion caused a number of wars to occur continuously throughout the time period. The first of these wars was the Crusades, a series of nine religious battles beginning in 1096 that lasted for almost two hundred years.
An Unfortunate Result to Cultural Collision With the increased technology of today’s world, cultures collide constantly, and these interactions can either have positive results of a blended culture, or negative results of horrible tragedies and acts of violence.

The collision of cultures is adapted to by some better than others, and the novel seamlessly conveys the results of each response to the newcomers, as

The impact of these terrorist attacks has been witnessed in almost all continents. The importance of explaining the prevalence of global terrorism and violent religious extremism lies within these three aspects, religion, culture and economics.

Buckelew (1984, p. 18) characterizes terrorism as "vicious, criminal conduct planned fundamentally to produce dread in the group, or in a significant fragment of the group, for political purposes" (accentuation included). Contingent upon the measurement of terrorist assaults, individuals may turn out to be progressively confounded, get apprehensive, or feel for the most part less protected.
