The 1970s up until Hussein’s arrest at the end of 2003, are known to be the most significant in terms of his role in terrorism. Hussein directly committed mass murder on multiple occasions (albeit, not on his own) and is said to be responsible for the death of at least half a million human beings. Some of his methods included: Death sentencing to opposers, the kidnapping and murder of thousands of Kurds and Barzanis, use of chemical weapons and more (ABC News, 2006). Trigger
The people who practice Islam have experienced hate crimes, the travel ban, and intense security at airports because of stereotypes that have become associated with the religion. 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.
Perhaps one of the most known attacks by the Islamic faith is the 9-11 catastrophe. More than 3,000 people died that day. Motivations for the Islamic extremists to kill was the claim of Muslims being oppressed. In Osama Bin Laden 's "Letter to America", he openly stated that Al-Qaeda 's motives for their attacks include: United States supporting attacks on Muslims in Somalia, supporting Russian killing Muslims in Chechnya, supporting the Indian oppression against Muslims in Kashmir, the Jewish hostility towards Muslims in Lebanon, and the US support of Israel. Al- Qaeda called all Muslims to stand and kill Americans and defend their people.
Long social distance in terms of cultural, relation and functional independence will likely lead to terrorism (Roche 1996) Terrorist do strike civilians attached to their enemies. Terrorist attacks targets symbolizing the central government, a dominant enemy regime or socio-economically of politically superior community (Black, 2004). Terroristic consequences are highly destructive in areas where the perpetrators are as socially removed from the victims. The social distance determines the intensity of the attack. Altering gender relations and
Over the history of the United States, there have been many attempts of terrorism on our soil, many through domestic roots. One such political quarrel that marked the radicalization of the American public far enough to bring about terrorism were on the terms of certain legislations, the concept of abolitionism and anti-abolitionism. Legislations like the Missouri Compromise, and Fugitive Slave act were very controversial to the general public, both in the North and South. At this time, many abolitionists chose to perform pacifist demonstrations rather than violent conflict to achieve their dream. Generation of sentiment against slavery culmunated in John Brown was a calculated terrorist as he used extreme forms of violence against the populus
The hate Klan used violence to control the people who believed in equal rights. Violent crimes like the Birmingham church bombing affected not only the innocent people who were hurt, killed or lost a loved one in the bombing but, people in the community who were scared to
In any rate, a number of V 's “terrorist acts” are literally revenge executions of the foretasted people. These revenge executions are unquestionably provoked by V 's outrage and acrimony. However, is there any righteous convention leading V 's vendetta? The answer to this question can be found in the emotions themselves. Anger is an emotional response to an anticipated injustice.
“ISIS has killed over 1,280 people” and “kill more than one at a time” just like the group Milligen talked about. ISIS is also known for “carrying out public executions,” which is where the guillotine executions were also held in the
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
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.

The Ku Klux Klan membership by 2005 neo-Nazi groups had fallen on hard times, with many groups collapsing or fragmenting. This collapse has helped create a rise of racist skinhead activity, but has also provided new opportunities for Klan groups. The Klan has a fairly high association with criminal activity, ranging from hate crimes to acts of domestic terrorism. The often conduct mass mailings, leafleting and the use of the internet to either gain members or spread hate. In the recent years the KKK was more violent than they ae now.
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. While Osama was the
Both the Boston Marathon Bombers and the Weatherman Underground have similarities and differences. One of the most obvious similarities is that they are both responsible for terrorist acts. Both the Boston Marathon Bombers and the Weatherman Underground have set off bombs in their attacks, and both have killed. While the Weather Underground have now attempted to brush off their bombings as never hurting or killing anyone, their bombings have been tied to the death of at least one police officer. The Weather Underground bombed a police substation in San Francisco where San Francisco Police Sergeant John Young was killed by the blast ().
