The target of terrorist is random; they attack both combatant and non-combatant or civilians. They attack people randomly because they do not have a specific target; they just want to terror the civilians and spread the feeling of fear and it is enough for them if people already fear. The example is the terrorists act in Bali in 2002, they do not see whether it is combatant or non-combatant, they attack both. The target of insurgent is the combatant. Combatant is like police, or army that can fight in a war.
Violence Begets Violence With terrorism being such a frequently used ubiquitous term, it is in utmost consequence to define the term accurately. How we understand the connotation of terrorism can determine how we choose to actively respond to it. Terrorism as defined by the CIA is “premeditated, politically motivated violence perpetrated against noncombatant targets by subnational groups or clandestine agents. Those who employ terrorism, regardless of their specific secular or religious objectives, strive to subvert the rule of law and effect change through violence and fear.”(CIA) Thus, terrorism is a tactic using violence to achieve a goal usually political or social. Violence is “is force used in a way that is morally wrong or that causes
When the extremists try to harm the public or try to have advantages over other people who are not under them, it is known as extremism. In other words, extremism is individuals who have incredibly strong views on something that can threaten the safety or security of the world. The extremists have no mercy for those people because they believe that those who do not follow them are their enemies, and also God’s enemies. After I read some articles about religious and cultural extremism, I have been convinced by these three articles: anti-abortion extremism, Ku Klux Klan, and 9/11 (Al-Qaeda). Therefore, I believe that religious and cultural extremism is a global security threat.
Terrorism- As expressed throughout the above programs, political violence can come up in several different forms. While, mainly in the contemporary world, distinct forms of political violence are assumed compatible with terrorism, they are not. Only an angry crowd can practice violent expressions, riots, and protests. Nevertheless, it is more complex to state about killing, bombing, and kidnapping as well: repeatedly nationalist in origin, often anti- systematic, utilized both within countrywide limits and across them. It has gone under terrorism’s label many times and has made contributions to a sense of wavering out of all fractions to its material, as divergent to its representative importance (Laqueur 1999).
Many people in today’s society allow the extreme fear of a terrorist attack to control their actions and perceptions. People assume that because someone is Islam or Muslim that they must be a terrorist, and they become weary of them to protect themselves. These situations demonstrate how permitting self-preservation to lead to hysteria causes destruction and hurt throughout the community. If not fixed, these situations will lead the destruction of the world. The theme of hysteria and self-preservation is evident throughout The Crucible and in real life.
Modern terrorism is not conducted only by one man or one political regime. Today's terrorism represents premeditated violence that is politically motivated and is mainly carried out on the civilian (non-military) targets by terrorist groups or individuals. Those who apply terrorism, regardless of their secular or religious goals, seek to undermine the rule of law and to impose change through violence and fear. Terrorism is, roughly speaking, trying to be a sensation, which is best evidenced by the execution carried out by the Islamic State. Some of the problems the modern world is facing in countering terrorism are: (a) many countries have not yet acceded to the international conventions to combat terrorism; (B) insufficient financial funds for the functioning of the authority of the Security Council and the assistance to states for the implementation of their anti-terrorism program; (C) the lack of a single definition of terrorism; (D) the existence of double standards in the approach to terrorism,
First of all, Islamists who use violence as a tool to achieve their political goals live in extreme political repression combined with extreme economic despair. Secondly, their interpretation of Islam is much distorted, meaning they have a very paranoid understanding about "the other" people. Islamists use two major propositions of Islam to justify their use of violence. The first is "the centrality of socioeconomic equity and justice and the second is the doctrine of jihad. The first principle is derived from the many Quranic verses and sayings of the Prophet Mohammed urging Muslims to struggle actively in the world for justice and social equity.
Muslims are also to blame for bringing terrorism to America and have gained so much power that they put fear in the citizens of victimized countries (Moore 1). The measure that criminals go to commit hate crimes is just devastating and harsh. These kinds of violence cause harm and strike fear in people not only in London but also places hearing of these horrific events. Nobody wants to be harassed or attacked for something that certain individuals in their culture did, and be stereotyped as that one
Violence was a common element in the Eleventh century Muslim countries. In Maalouf’s Samarkand, violence culminated public life, whereby the public condemned liberal thought. Any person who went against the socially accepted way of life, in these Muslim countries, faced a probable risk of violence. The authority, including the public condemned Omar Al Khaiyyam, and subsequent labeled him an infidel because, in his Rubaiyat ridiculed Islamic faith. In Fight Club, Chuck Palahniuk explores the theme of violence through chaotic events.
Messages are distributed through a systematic projection to places that are virtually far away from the country or region, where the terrorist activity has taken place; with the aim of proliferating an innate perceptible threat or fear of terrorism at large. The international press uses various metaphors and frames such as ‘Islamic Terrorism’, ‘Muslim terrorist’ and radical Muslim’ to propagate islampohobia; maligning the image of the entire Muslim community. These conscious efforts on the part of media leads to increasing need of surveillance and security, where different methods of racial profiling are used by the police against
The perfect breeding grounds for terrorism are found in the countries whose administration lacks confidence, cracks and deteriorates after a terrorist attack, which is exactly what those terrorist groups want. Terrorist might also attack the United States in hopes of getting them involved into their local conflict, by pressuring the government to
Muslims in the United States were symbolically attached to the notion that they were likely connected to the 9/11 attacks and other future acts of terrorism (such as hiding a terrorist). The events of 9/11 intensified the fear of terrorism and the war on terror became the sole purpose of American politics, thus putting terrorism and war on the same outlook. Unfavorable views of Islam and overall negative views of Muslim may be associated with the support for the War on Terror. It is safe to say that public attitudes toward Muslims help one 's stance on the War on Terror. Cainkar expresses that terming a “war” on terrorism provokes fear and promotes violence.
Thanks to history we see war is not limited to killing. Instead, war is a multi-packed good or evil struggle each with its own purposeful initiation and ending. Conquering poverty, illiteracy, HIV-AIDS, wasting profitable time, crimes, and armed conflict between nations or factions could exemplify what war envelops. The language of war, as states by Khalid Sheik Mohammad is, however, generalize or viewed as killing. The nature of the war addressed in Mohammad 's one lengthy article is also taken as a specific social conflict based on religious confrontation.
One of the subjects that the documentary focuses largely on is the idea that fear is being used as a tool to create consumption. Moore establishes that the fear being embedded into the audience 's brain by journalistic media is driving Americans into a consumption frenzy. Violent crimes are largely covered by media to instigate said fear, therefore making viewers feel unsafe, and creating a desire to be prepared in case of an emergency, for example, buying guns. According to Moore, this is one of the main factors that causes the high rates of gun violence in the United States, as it creates a desire to own guns, causes paranoia among the audience, and therefore generates an expectation that the firearms will be needed. "In essence, Moore suggests that the media creates an atmosphere of terror by constantly putting the American people on notice of various threats."
In Trish Roberts-Miller article “Characteristics of Demagoguery” she describes this term as a strategy to polarize and blame out-groups for the ineffectiveness of solutions to the country 's problems. Demagoguery is fear based, it calls for quick actions and attacks. Demagogues use certain strategies
