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.
There are three to examines: the fact and legitimacy of racial profiling, the redeployment of orientalist tropes, and the relationship between citizenship, nation, and identity. In order to racial profiling, people in US tend to seek male noncitizens between the ages of 18-33 from “Middle Eastern” or “Islamic” countries or countries with some suspected tie to Al-Qaeda are more likely to be terrorists. The majority were identified by the US government as based solely on perceptions of their racial, religious backgrounds, and ethnic identity. Before the terror 9/11 happened, people do not have concern and even stereotypes about Eastern Asian such as Pakistani, Somalian, and Muslim, on the other hand, exaggerated racial profiling since the terror 9/11 as terrorists might be the movement to provoke a rethinking of real citizenship about them in the United States of
A phobia, according to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, is an extremely strong dislike or fear of someone or something. Since the history of 9/11 terrorist attacks in the USA., a specific phobia has gripped in the Western population, which is Islamophobia. Many Americans grew up with the negative idea about Arabic speakers. However, Wajahat Ali’s “Inshallah is Good for Everyone,” published on April 22, 2016, in The New York Times shows a different perspective. Ali is a Pakistani American writer who was born in a Muslim family.
Most refugees in Europe come from nations that are predominantly Muslim.” (Poushter,2016) Communities were scared that these people were going to come and harm or terrorize their communities.” A median of 59% across 10 EU countries voice concern about the prospect of increased terrorism. This includes 76% who say this in Hungary and 71% in Poland. Around six-in-ten in Germany (61%), the Netherlands (61%) and Italy (60%) also think refugees will increase terrorism in their country.” (Poushter,2016) They were scared they were going to take over and that their communities would cease to
The painting “Saying Grace” depicts a part of american culture for the not so free freedom of religion that was prevalent back in the 1950’s, and even today. Today the majority of Americans look down upon many religions, but none more than muslim. Every since I have been alive I have heard some pretty bad stereotypes of muslims, and growing up in Dublin Ohio I didn't know many muslims so I would thought all these stereotypes were the truth. One report from the Pew Research Center stated that “49% of Americans said Islam is not more likely than other religions to encourage violence among its followers”(Greenwood). Much like in rockwell's painting im sure if a muslim mother and child sat down in a busy restaurant and prayed out loud for everyone to hear, the reaction would look much like the
Being American means that you are part of one of the most diverse cultures in the world. America is one of very few countries in the world where it is near impossible to define the nationality by one race or religion. America is a melting pot of different religions and it is difficult to find anyone who does not have immigrant bloodlines from many different continents such as Europe and Africa. However, we do not use race or ancestry to determine what it means to be an American. This is not what defines us, but rather our unique political, economic and social values.
“In Defense of a Loaded Word”: The main idea of this article is that there are many names that are inappropriate to use: an example would be calling your parents by their first name. The author says that one of those many is not the n-word, as it should be. As one example is shown in the article, “the Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Riley Cooper, who is white, angrily called a black security guard a [n-word] in July”. Because this word shows up so casually in so much popular culture, it does not come as a shock when it is revealed that the word doesn’t and hasn’t disappeared. In To Kill A Mockingbird, this word is common.
It's practiced freely by many millions of Americans, and by millions more in countries that America counts as friends. Its teachings are good and peaceful, and those who commit evil in the name of Allah blaspheme the name of Allah. The terrorists are traitors to their own faith, trying, in effect, to hijack Islam itself. The enemy of America is not our many Muslim friends; it is not our many Arab friends. Our enemy is a radical network of terrorists, and every government that supports them.”In this part, Bush used his religious language.
In 2017, the obsession with culturally matching in adoption processes went too far in Britain (Mander). Sandeep Mander shared his and his wife’s story with The London Spectator in an article named “Too Indian to Adopt” on September 2, 2017. Sandeep and his wife are British Sikhs, but aren’t practicing ones. They like to think there is something out there, but they are far from being religious. Both Sandeep and his wife went to Roman Catholic schools growing up, they work in business, and their closest circle of friends are white British.
Giving detailed examples and unique points is something that I consider a strength of mine. In my paper “Reel Bad Arabs Reflection,” I wrote a paragraph describing how these horrible stereotypes derive from the news. I mentioned how the media had immediately assumed it was Muslim or Middle Eastern terrorists who had been the cause of the bombing in Oklahoma City; even though they couldn’t have been farther away from the truth. Additionally, I mentioned how Palestinians are often depicted as terrorists. To make my point clear, I stated, “If the United States had supported Palestine instead of Israel, you would never find the stereotypes in our films.” Furthermore, the organization of my papers is another one of my strengths.
The way of looking at Islam in Egypt is not the same as in Saudi Arabia or in Iran” (Patterson). Another common misconception among Americans is that they believe all Muslims come from terrorist ridden countries, such as Saudi Arabia and Iran. Contrary to this belief, 42% of American Muslims are native-born African Americans. In reality, less than 1 in 8 American Muslims are of Arab descent (Blank). For the 7,910,298 Muslims living in the United States, lack of understanding and poorly justified misconceptions has made life difficult (Kettani).
