The film is about 14 minutes trailer titled Innocence of Muslims, the movie depicts the Prophet Muhammad in what Muslims say is a derogatory manner. Lots of Muslim countries in Middle East and others protested to some diplomatic mission and caused US Ambassador, Chris Stevens and three embassy officials are killed in US Consulate in Libya . These kind of thing lead the anti-Americanism into deeply hatred over US. Overall, the main cause of anti-Americanism arise in Arab world is because the US policy that assessed much harm Arab surrounding and Muslims, only for its own interest. The other factor that based on religion appears are not solely about religion or kin relationship, yet it truly affected by the US
“Where is the Love” was released in 2003; post 9/11. The events that occurred on 9/11 were very gruesome for the United States. The lyrics emphasises the evil that is terrorism, and how the U.S is sending troops overseas to stop the terrorism in other countries even though there are still terrorists that still reside in the U.S. Not only that, but the lyrics suggest that there are terrorists that are members in the CIA, Bloods, Crips, and KKK. That line of the song calls out the faults in the government and its branches of systems and institutions. This stanza especially highlights the similarities of violence that is associated with all of those
BANG! BANG! BANG! Gunshots echo out a terrifying noise heard by far too many Americans in the growing epidemic of mass shootings. When people think of terrorism, some of the worst events in history come to mind, such as September 11th, or the sarin attack on the subways of Tokyo.
When the extremists try to harm the public or try to have advantages over other people who are not under them, it is known as extremism. In other words, extremism is individuals who have incredibly strong views on something that can threaten the safety or security of the world. The extremists have no mercy for those people because they believe that those who do not follow them are their enemies, and also God’s enemies. After I read some articles about religious and cultural extremism, I have been convinced by these three articles: anti-abortion extremism, Ku Klux Klan, and 9/11 (Al-Qaeda). Therefore, I believe that religious and cultural extremism is a global security threat.
This perception of Islam is enlarging globally more and more because of some reasons such as terrorist attacks in non-Muslim countries, effect of media on the people, misunderstanding of Islam, and lack of the true representative Muslims in non-Muslim countries. First of all, existence of some terrorist groups which call their selves ‘Muslim’ is can be seen as the most remarkable reason for islamophobia. To illustrate, ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) organizes suicide bomb attacks in many countries and they claim that they justify this attacks with Islam and different interpreting of Quran. These attacks pose a threat for the innocent people all around the world and cause a massive fear from Muslims among non-Muslim people. What’s more, due to ISIS’s belief that it represents the Islam, people generalize all Muslims as terrorists.
Islam is still deemed as a religion of war, violence and blood-spilling sacred Jihad. However, these assumed hostility and aggressiveness of Islam was deeply planted in the mind of extremists and the western people, whose opinions mostly are shaped by the media, by the 9/11 attacks and bombing. (Qaradawi, 2010) It is also safe to assumed that these acts of “Jihad”, are misunderstood and misinterpreted by extremists of both sides, are all derived from the Quranic verses, around 109 verses, which encourage Muslims to fight the infidels. Their mistake is de-contextualization. In de-contextualized, any language can lose its actual meaning and intention, and become misinterpretations.
It was a terrorists act against the Parliament of India in New Delhi. The assault led to killing of many Indians and it paralyzed the Indo-Pak relations. Indian has buildup armed forces after terrorist attacks; direct pressure on Pakistan, indirect pressure on United States to force Pakistan to stop/reduce support for jihadi and terrorists. (Khalid, 2012, 13) The Indian authorities become more cautious in her relation with Pakistan due to the element of terrorism, it claimed that Pakistan was the nursery of global terrorism. Many other terror incidents were associated to Pakistan as the Mumbai blasts in 2006, the attack on the Indian Embassy in Kabul, and the Mumbai attacks in 2008.
The framing of media after the 9/11 attack of the Muslim states such as Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan as well as presenting ‘Muslims’ as terrorist shows how easily these attacks has a violent effect on two countries relation. Further the relations between these countries are disturbed as other attacks happen. Recently US President Donald Trump ordered a ban against the entry inhabitants of Muslim majority states (Iran, Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Somalia, Sudan, and Libya) due to the weekly terrorist activities in
Notably Osama Bin Ladin led terrorism attacked on the mighty United States of America becomes an alert and warning to the whole world. Since then, the image of terrorism and their status tend to grow in negative context of threat to every institution. From the ISIS which is a Islamic State of Iraq and Syria quested for the violent ideology that claims the religious authority over all Muslims and to the recent Uri attack from Pakistan into India, the terrorism has always made everyone to be in a state of terror and fear which is not at all just unlike the war
Although the primary targets of the attacks of terrorism in Kenya were U.S. and Israeli citizens and Properties, the consequences of these attacks were catastrophic for Kenya as well on many levels. According to the Daily Nation Newspaper, the attacks had “grave economic, political, and social implications .The attacks by terrorists in Kenya have negatively impacted the economy of this country as the mainly affected areas where those which are likely used by national and international people who have a very big role in the development planning of the country and this have limited significantly the flight of some planes into and out of Kenya. The United States, Germany, and the U.K. issued travel advisories that paralyzed the tourism sector in 2003, recording a loss of $14 million a week (tourism employs more than half a million people in Kenya and represents 15 percent of the country’s foreign-exchange earnings.) Foreign tourists cancelled their visits to Kenya’s sunny beaches in Mombasa, Malindi, and Lamu and to renowned safari destinations—Masai Mara, Tsavo, and Samburu. During 1996, Kenya used to receive about one million tourists but after the attacks of terrorists this number declined considerably and this has affected the whole economy of the
