The leader of this infamous group goes by the name of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. (Drehle,10 The group alone has picked up traction and has recruited thousands of violent jihadist. Reports also show that at a statistical number, just around 25,000 to 30,000 ISIS troops are covered thinly between Syria and Iraq. (Drehle, 3 ) ISIS capitalized on the interfaith strife in theses two countries to make it’s self seem larger than life. A number of about 6,000 ISIS troops have been killed, this number would be higher if the terrorist would show themselves.
In the news papers it said , “Nobody immediately claimed responsibility for the attacks”( ). Something that is common for attacks in the the United States is proudly claimed responsibility. Not all terrorist are muslims and the ones who are take responsibility and have reasoning. So it 's really ironic that the one attack that started the fear of Muslims have no survivors and nobody but the government to speak on their behalf. There is a pentagon case study showing that the damage does not match how much damage should have been done.
“Many hands make light work” my preacher would say, and this statement held true year after year, as me and my team hosted multiple successful vacation bible schools for our church. With that being said, the heavy cloud of spiritual emptiness gloomed over me as I struggled with the idea of a way to find other ways to minister to children.
Here are some facts to take into account. In 2017 alone there have been 2,073 deaths caused by guns, 3,552 injuries, 79 of those children, 34 mass shootings, which is usually defined as four or more people dying. So obviously we have an issue, those numbers are really high compared to most countries that are as developed as us. Which is why I don’t entirely lean to no gun control. Another stat I didn’t mention is defensive use, which has been put at 213.
As Smyth (2006) suggests, “the Los Angeles Riots were not borne overnight.” As a result of the riots, Los Angeles suffered damages of around $1 billion and 53 people were killed, thousands were injured and 5,000 were arrested. It is not coincidental that more than 5,000 people would appear at the same place and time, protesting about the same issue, and so happen to have with them weapons to destroy the city. The riots were clearly planned out. However, the riots are regarded as unplanned events because of the scale of planning. The individuals involved had different reasons for getting involved; some may be friends of King and others could include the social circle of victims of
CNN initially did not report any obvious plane wreckage. This particular report was only aired once, why? Could the American government have collaborated with CNN to manipulate the reporting of this event? It is well documented that governments across the globe have historically manipulated news and distributed propaganda to their own citizens, the American government included. A recent example being Tony Blair and George Bush’s dossier of lies claiming Iraq had weapons of mass destruction, which led to Western allies invading Iraq.
Due to it’s impact on humanity, it is remembered around the world through memorials, international days of commemoration and presentations. For Germany, the actions of the Holocaust are very personal. Coming to terms with the country’s violent past was suppressed as they struggled to cope with their actions throughout WWII. Until 1990, Germany was separated into East and West Germany and both states could not accept their nations past. After Germany’s reunification, the efforts of individuals to remember the Holocaust has sky-rocketed as most of Berlin’s memorials have been established in the past 25 years.
Cultural diversity is very important because we learn from one another, we come up with new ways of thinking, and it helps us recognize ways of being that are not necessarily our own. This diversity has built bridges to trust, respect, and understanding of many cultures around the world. Furthermore, this diversity makes our nation more of an interesting place to live, as many immigrants from many diverse cultures contribute to the new knowledge and different experiences that make this grand nation unique. It will be such a shame for the United States to close its doors to the immigrants who risk their lives to try to find an opportunity to build a better life for themselves and their families in this majestic nation of
Men, women, and children are exported across the border every minute. It is often done through underground secret networks. Most victims are women and girls. Traffickers target women and younger more than they do men and boys because they`re discriminated the most so they know they will be seeking employment and they prey on women`s vulnerability. They make false promises to these women and girls saying they`ll have decent working conditions and fair pay.
Human trafficking is a serious global issue that needs the world attention and awareness. The unjustified trade and enslavement of human beings in the 21st century reflects a degenerate state of human’s rights affairs. As a consequence of poverty, trafficker lure the victims with false promises of a better life. Because profits of human trafficking are low risk taking and easy to make money, as a result, many people are being capture and lure away from their families and being sold illegal across countries. If human trafficking continues then many families are going to be separated which will have an enormous consequence on than victim’s life by leaving permanent damages in them both physically and mentally.
Cops are indicted in less than one percent of killings compared to the rate of citizens which is ninety percent. Why policemen are not charged for a crime that is clear that they committed? For example, in Bridgetown, New Jersey on December 30th, 2014. Jerame Reid was shot by Braheme Days and Roger Warley. Reid advocated he would get out the car and on the ground ensuring the officers that he didn’t have anything but Days stated not to and made a remark, “Reid would be dead if he reaches for anything.” Officer Warley fired one shot and “did not hit anything” according to the prosecutor’s office but Days fired seven shots that struck Reid repeatedly.
I was only five when 9/11 happened. As long as I can remember, I have been raised to believe that people that fit these so-called ‘terrorists’ description are bad people who support terrorism on America. “The 9/11 terrorists broke numerous laws of Islam and were denounced as mass murderers by Islamic religious leaders. Even so, Islam is viewed as a religion preaching violence.” This is isn’t surprising, since Americans know little about even the most basic tenets of Islam. Islam is the second-largest religion in the world, and Muslims make up more than one-fifth of the world’s population, but Americans continue to know little about the religion.
“Most of the terrorist activity in the U.S. in recent years has come not from Muslims, but from radical Christianists, white supremacists and far-right militia groups.” Most people in America have never or barely heard about Christian terrorism. Why? Because this country in mostly Christians and to them this terrorism doesn’t seem to matter. But when it’s a foreign group of terrorists it matters more. If 9/11 hadn’t occurred, the Chapel Hill shooting wouldn’t have mattered at all.
Conservative bigots, extremist, and the American media, targets Muslims as terroist, but are not hesistant to manipulate Black, White, Asian, or Hispanic crime as acts of terrorism. Goal Auzeen Saedi, a contributor to the Millienial Media Blog, mentions that after the 9/11 attacks, “… the FBI [Federal Bureau of Investigation] reported a 1600% increase in hate crimes against [Muslims].” Needless to say, these crimes were not reported by the media as acts of terroism as well, but were only considered by the American public as hate crimes. Furthermore, during the 2012 mass movie theatre shooting in Aurora, Colorado, James Holmes, the White male who killed 12 innocent Americans while injuring 70, received news headlines categorizing Holmes and his actions from sources such as Fox News, and CNN as mass murder, gunman, psycho killer, happy boy, and his actions: massacre. Even though these descriptions are malicious, they do not provoke the same fear to Americans as descriptions such as terroism, terroist, and Muslim—all of these terms are terrifying to the American
citizens, but still increase border security. This alternative consist in giving undocumented immigrant that are already living in the United States the opportunity of becoming a U.S. citizen. Immigrants would be given a grace period to complete the requirements for their citizenship without having to be afraid of deportation. Immigrants would have to follow the current procedures, and complete the current process to qualify for the citizenship. To avoid the constant flow of more undocumented immigrants there would be an increment on the measures, and actions to protect the border such as more patrolling as explained
