Prior to the September 11th attacks, the group had been linked to several more attacks including attacks in Kenya, Saudi Arabia, Indonesia, Turkey, Algeria, Israel, the United Kingdom, and many more places. (The Editors of Encyclopedia Britannica 2) All of these attacks trace back to the main mastermind of the group: Bin Laden. He attacked so many more places besides the U.S. which shows his overall threat to the whole world. And even though he always claimed to follow the “purest form of Islam”, many experts insisted that he was covering up the faith’s edicts against killing innocent people. Islam draws boundaries on where and why holy war can be waged but Bin Laden declared the entire world as fair territory.
There were many people jailed with one reason, they are Muslims. It constitutes a dictatorship type of government and not a constitutional government that promoted democracy. They also did not respect and appreciate the international law. Action should be taken even though US is a strong and major countries, but, human right must be prioritised. The act of President Bush accused Osama as the main actor of the attack, we could see it clearly that his ‘intelligence’ which because they can know who the real enemy is in just few hours of the attacks.
The effects of 911 attack on twin towers was huge to Americans and the world. The short term effects would be sadness and shocks felt by the Americans and the destruction of the tower. It led to the invasion of Iraq and Afghanistan. Both of these effects led to the rising hated between Middle east and USA. The terrorist group Al-Qaeda, which claimed the responsibility of the attack on Twin Towers was formed at a meeting gathered by Osama Bin Laden in August 1988 They claimed to protect their own country or kingdom when American forces arrived in Saudi Arabia to prepare for the first gulf war.
The Taliban was asked to hand over Bin Laden because the terrorist organization would then be unable to operate without its leader, but they refused to cooperate. Their claim was that the United States has not given any evidence proving that Bin Laden had been behind 9/11. An interview of Bin Laden saying, “‘If inciting people to [suicide bomb] is terrorism […], then let history be witness that we are terrorist’” (Bin Laden 's Sole Post-September 11 TV Interview Aired par. 6) that aired shortly after the tragic day and the Islamic religious ruling Bin Laden had written which urged Muslims to attack the U.S. were provided. It was as if Bin Laden had proven himself guilty.
Because of his religious beliefs, he believed Afghanistan and the surrounding countries should adopt an Islamic regime, not a communist one. When Bin Laden got word of this invasion, he did everything he could to prevent it. Initially, the US did not want to help Afghanistan or get involved in its war. When the Soviet Union started sending troops to Afghanistan the US finally realized they couldn’t let the Soviet Union take over Afghanistan and increase the spread of
Since these numbers are so high, it helps support the claim that not all Muslims are terrorists. By classifying people by their religion, we create this divide in the world. Amartya Sen, author of the essay “A World Not Neatly Divided,” talks about how each person needs to find other ways of seeing people; one cannot just see another in a way that only revolves around their political views, language, religious status, and other affiliations. Sen writes, “Our religion, important as it may be, cannot be an all-engulfing identity” (Sen 70). When one looks specifically on another’s religious views, that is the only thing highlighted; that person is nothing more but a Lutheran, a Buddhist, or a
Our enemy is a radical network of terrorists, and every government that supports them.”In this part, Bush used his religious language. It’s not only an expression about his personal belief, but also a useful political strategy. Religion was taken as a mechanism in his speech. He made the religion more simplified and even used it to replace listeners’ idea. He put himself as high as the God to set himself at the side of righteousness.
America has gone through difficult times with war, but has gone through harder times with the war on terror. Terrorism is defined as the use of terror or threat. The war on terror became a big deal on December 7, 1941, Pearl Harbor was bombed by hundreds of Japanese fighter planes, but has been a bigger deal since that attack on the Twin Towers in New York City and the Pentagon in Washington, D.C.. The bombing of the Twin Towers and to the Pentagon was like a Pearl Harbor but for the 21st century. Terrorist turn to violent means such as killing and bombing of the government.
He stated to the American people, the world leaders, the congress, as well as all government officials in the US, that the Al Qaeda are in fact, traitors, terrorists, and enemies. Bush was pointing his fingers towards the Al Qaeda while looking at the American people that they were the bad guys, whom we had to fight against. He called them these names in hopes, that we would blindly
Reid’s guilt was not only associated with his own admission of being a terrorist, but through the context of his affiliations with Al Qaeda. These are other standards of terrorism, which define the premeditated cooperation with Al Qaeda with Reid to plan this attack on American civilians. Therefore, Richard Reid is a terrorist because he has willing planned this mission with the assistance of a known international terrorist organization. Certainly, the court proceeding of Reid’s trial define the terrorist nature of Reid’s actions as a conscious act of aggression in the terrorist mode, since he had planned to destroy American lives and a commercial airliner in this type of military-based covert
The assassination of Osama Bin Laden was just because he was dangerous, a threat, and had too way much power. Osama Bin Laden wanted to create his own and he was willing to do whatever to get what he desired no matter who he had to kill. Do you think Osama Bin Laden should’ve been assassinated . Most people would think yes of course all of the people has hurt and killed over his own desires. Some would say no because it was thought as his religion so why not follow that , but that doesn’t mean you just kill innocent people for absolutely no reason.
The killing of the Al-Qaeda leader, which is a Radical Islamic Terrorist Group, founded in the 1980 's by Osama Bin Laden, was a huge justice in the U.S. and other countries. Bin Laden posed a global threat to the countries where Islam is not implemented, he was responsible for the September, 11th attacks back in 2001. He orchestrated it, and had it planned for months, he was planning more attacks on the U.S. after 9/11 as well. ("The World Trade Center History.") The terrorist group Al-Qaeda knew they couldn’t beat the U.S. in a straight up firefight, so they tried to destroy us through economic failure and imposing fear into American lives.
They think they might as well support it because they are stereotyped anyway. It will take a long time for communities to start mixing in more… Tony Blair addressed Muslims in particular, telling them that they need to sort out the problem within. That was a huge stereotype of the Islamic community.” As Hammasa states, when Muslims feel alienated by western culture, they may turn to extremism. “I feel after everything that 's happened Muslims are being stereotyped negatively. The whole community has been labelled and, whether they are guilty of crime or not, they are getting penalised for it.” She finishes.
