Religion is just the collection of beliefs that people have on god. The terror attacks in the middle east, western countries are getting from bad to worse. The religious intolerance occurring in India is not getting any better either. These conflicts happening in the name of God is all forcing us to ask this question to ourselves ‘Is religion a cause of war?’. Can this be the very reason why lives of innocent people are snatched away?
Therefore, strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them". But this is an ironic thing to think as the Bible has 842 verses that are cruel or violent (roughly 3%). Christians feared the Muslims because of this teaching calling for war against non-believers and as a result of this teaching Muslims were killing Christians and other religions in the Middle East. So the first justification was that the Christians should retaliate and kill them in return. The second justification was that these “barbarians” had taken territory belonging to the Christians especially holy sites such as Jerusalem.

The way the government controls the people, censorship on certain information, how media and technology have affected people, and society's views on opinions and access to knowledge are what makes a society that is different or similar from other societies. A difference in these traits can make a society crumble to a dystopia. The freedom of the lives in these societies can change depending on the condition of their society, whether it be an oppressive, controlling society or a free and open society. By analyzing and studying these factors, we can understand what makes a society and how to support
1.Society as a whole believes serial killer are evil because that is how the media portrays them. We subconsciously let the media control our thoughts by believing it what they tell us.

On the internet or the news, there are multiple stories of people taken hostage and forced to work for terrorist groups or engage in these sickening acts.

It can be inferred with this definition that anyone is capable of being a
Wherever Isis goes they kill and are a problem. Isis established in 2004 by Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. He was close to Osama bin Laden, but he wasn't a part of Al Qaeda. Isis is a violent terrorist group who are determined to kill all Muslims that do not accept their brand of Islam.
In today's society Islam is one of the biggest racial and controversial groups, but is also one of the most oppressed groups. Muslims have been oppressed ever since the tragic incident of September 11th, 2001, all of the Islamic people were blamed for this incident even though only a small group was responsible. The social movement towards Muslim equality was only started because of the racism and discrimination Muslims were receiving from the public and the Press. Muslims face discrimination even from the U.S. Government, mainly because the current U.S. President does not support Islam or Muslims of any kind. An organization named "Pew" polled Muslims that are living in america, asking them questions about their social lives and their conditions
Nowadays, Arabs are seen as terrorists and extremists due to how the media depicts them. Journalists use key words such as extremists, terrorists and fanatics to describe Arabs. According to Shaheen (1984), "The present day Arab stereotype parallels the image of Jews in pre-Nazi Germany, where Jews were painted as dark, shifty-eyed, venal and threateningly different people." These misrepresentations have generated a feeling of hatred and terror towards Arabs. In a research conducted by L. John Martin (1985), results showed that "terrorism" was used by the media in describing horrific incidents caused by Arabs.
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.
One of the biggest issues in our country today is terrorism. Many Americans are surrounded by fear of potential attacks and many more have ideas and perceptions of Muslims rooted in their mind. Yet these thoughts play a major role in racism and islamophobia, thoughts that could contribute to more terrorism, and more harmful impacts on our Muslim brothers and sisters. Muslim communities have been under intense surveillance, mapping and identifying neighborhoods where many Muslims preside. Kamalakar Duvvuru, who teaches the New Testament in India, says, “In 2007 the Los Angeles Police Department [LAPD] launched an extensive mapping program to identify Muslim enclaves across the city.
They are the collective group made up by those who hold Islamic views and all others who are in the business of trying to eliminate anyone who isn’t Muslim. Islamists are always trying to cleanse the world of anyone they see as non-compatible with the Sharia law; particularly Western culture. Some are willing to commit the most heinous crimes such as kidnapping or assassination or worse. However, one of the tactics I find the most demented are the suicide attacks; yes, attackers are even willing to lose their lives in order to supposedly cleanse. While not all are alive still, there have been a handful of masterminds behind the origin of al-Qaeda; Abu Ubaidah al-Banshiri, the current leader, Abdullah Yusuf Azzam and of course, the man of the hour, Osama bin Laden.
The media is a large aspect of society today around the world, and one of the ways the media is being used is to influence the public to believe a bad portrayal of Muslims. Currently Muslims around the world, but mainly in the United States are facing hate crimes. The largest influence on hate crimes is the fear that the media put in the public about Muslims, which creates Islamophobia, which is the dislike of our prejudice against Islam or Muslims. Islamophobia is a political platform used especially in America that politicians believe will lead to their win. The United States needs to change the way the media reports and should make sure that the media is used to inform the
I remember the day vividly, I was sitting on the couch as I watched the news starring Bryan Williams, he reported death after death after death. He spoke in a sinister and dark voice, speaking out how muslims are controlling the world in such a negative way. I recall believing that all muslims were horrible people and their culture was negative on the world. This situation displays that media controlled my life and affected how I viewed others and society. Although many people assert that one’s culture consistently is being influenced by many aspects of one's life, whether it be, family time, food, or politics.
