In Cameron’s opinion it is all a question of identity (ll.27). Young men cannot identify with the Islam practiced at home since it is transplanted to western countries. As a result it is hard for them to identify with Britain as well (ll.29-32) and they start to feel “rootless” (ll.44). Moreover, Cameron states that immigrant’s problems were often ignored because they were too “fearful to stand up to them” (ll.40). All this leads to the conclusion, that it is partly our, the communities and the governments, fault that immigrants do not feel included or welcome in our society (ll.
As Asim Karim quotes Vertovec (2010) in his article “Multiculturalism”: there has emerged in public discourse across numerous settings- especially in Europe- a broad backlash against multiculturalism. From the political Right many critics now see multiculturalism as a foremost contributor to social breakdown, ethnic tension and the growth of extremism and terrorism (cited in Karim 126). Kymlicka and other theorists of multiculturalism have claimed that antidiscrimination law falls short of treating members of minority groups as equals; because states cannot be neutral with respect to culture. Yet we can find state support for some cultural groups over others in culturally diverse societies. As Jeremy Waldron (1995, 100) argues, “We live in a world formed by technology and trade; by economic, religious, and political imperialism and their offspring; by mass migration and the dispersion of cultural influences.
Atheism & Alternative Religions 2.1 Religious Pluralism One of the challenges facing evangelism today is the proliferation of religions in the world. Without a body with adequate authority to regulate the creation of religions, this has continued unabated. This trend toward religious pluralism and the labeling of Christian particularists as 'hatemongers' is growing. These times calls for evangelical Christians to put more concerted effort in their work as the threat is particularly huge. With the decreasing influence of Christianity in Western world and the proliferation of other religions such as Islam and Hinduism in the West, opposition to the traditional Christian view and those who hold to it will continue to grow.
Europeans see those people that are occupants into society and cultural environment. Xenophobic groups in Europe demand to preserve their culture from foreigners to be a member of European Union On the other hand, with the rising of terrorist attacks across the Europe appear Islamophobia. The mainstream discourse is that Islam is a violant religion and Muslims are violant people. Therefore, many Europeans saw the Muslims as potential terrorists and they refuse the sharing the same place with them. Traditional fascist parties and extremist parties on Europe use this xenophobic and racist language in order to rise its votes and to exclude them from political areas.
However, It is more difficult to be half catholic and half Muslim, and as demonstrated above he almost foreshadowed the near future of his time. The rumor that such horror could be fuelled by religious anger sent people rushing back to texts they had once ignored. September 11th did more than send shock waves through the USA; it deranged much of the American public by giving it a heavy does of shell shock; shell shock that left them feeling venerable to attack and
It is very hard to be able to say which factor had a greater impact because to an extent both factors had a huge impact as they coincided with one and other. And basically if you removed one or the other you wouldn’t end up with the same colonies and there is no way of knowing which colonies we would have gotten either. In my opinion I think that the economic factors outweighed the religious factors in colonization. I feel this way because a large number of immigrants migrated to the new colonies in search of a better life as the economy was stronger and possible living standards were better than their previous ones. Let’s not discredit those people who moved to the new colonies to be able to practice their own religion and have their own religious
Second, is the rise of nationalism across the world, which was also affected UK, caused by EU beliefs that institutions such as NATO and IMF that created after World War II are no longer serve a purpose. This growing mistrust and fear of losing control created diversion, and made Brexit appears as the most reasonable solution for those who oppose EU 's
Refugees are an important topic in the media at the moment, mostly because of the increasing numbers of immigrants in various countries, but also because of the way they are talked about. Some people think that we use an excessive amount of negative and condescending words, when we talk about refugees. They believe it can be “dehumanizing” and suggests that we start using positive words about refugees, because that could change our view on them. Can a change in our language really change our perspective? The British reporter Adam Taylor addresses this issue in his article “Why the language we use to talk about refugees matters so much” published in The Washington Post on July 30, 2015.
Back it up with a quote or research). A recent vote for the EU parliament secured UKIP - a British nationalist party which has advocated that Britain leave the EU and is staunchly anti-immigrant - the highest percentage of seats of any other party. In the face of such seemingly widespread negative perceptions of immigrants, it is important, now more than ever, to examine exactly what it is that influences perceptions of immigrants. A vast quantity of research exists on attitudes towards immigrants and immigration. Abundant evidence has been presented that attitudes towards immigrants and other minority groups are closely linked to variables such as educational level (Coenders and Scheepers, 2003; Hagendoorn and Nekuee, 1999; Hainmueller and Hiscox, 2007), economic interests (Citrin et al., 1997; Dustmann and Preston, 2004; Fetzer, 2000), religiosity
Schuylon Johnson Coach D. English IV Immigration in America The number of legal, and illegal immigrants have risen over the years, which has stirred more debate about immigration. Some think it’ll help the economy, and the others think that it’s affecting the economy, but in reality, immigration has been beneficial to a degree, but there are negative effects as well. A topic that is always discussed in America is with the increasing number of immigrants will there be an increase of terrorist attacks? Multiple people say yes, because of the previous terrorist attacks by Muslim. People in America have the idea that Muslims, are more likely to make terrorist attacks on American soil because of 9/11, the Boston Marathon Attack, and Los Angeles
