“Everyone’s worried about stopping terrorism. Well, there’s really an easy way: Stop participating in it.” This quote written by Noam Chomsky states clearly how the world concerns about the ISIS terrorism. Look at what ISIS is doing recently and what has been done by these terrorists. Their terrorist attacks damaged cultures, killed millions of innocent life, and nearly destroyed the humanity among humans. Only a heartless person would deny these facts.
Isis is a violent terrorist group who are determined to kill all Muslims that do not accept their brand of Islam. They are also killing whoever opposes their religion. They even kill there own if they do something wrong or disobey orders. Innocent children are also a part of Isis. They take away children from their families and train them to kill.
Another example is the Songhai empire. Songhai leaders were Muslims as well. The Berbers was willing to trade due to sharing the same religion. Since the Berbers were willing to trade, the empire grew richer. Sunni Ali, an important emperor, partnered in Muslim and local religions to build religious
ISIS terrorized for the radical beliefs of Islam and their religion. Recently ISIS carried out an attack in Egypt on Rawdah Sufi mosque in Bir al-Abed. CNN news states, “Between 25 and 30 armed men carried out the assault, and the death toll climbs above 300.” Another ISIS attack happened in Kabul, Afghanistan. On January 4th of 2018 New York Times states that "A suicide bomber working for ISIS attacked a market where shopkeepers were protesting against the police killing 20 and wounding two dozen." Here, again we see two instances where a group of people twists their religion to kill these people and cause terror.
The IRA used terror consciously, suggesting they chose their fights and the grounds on which they exploited their enemy.The tactic to utilize guerrilla warfare and not traditional warfare acted as a force multiplier and gained much public interest. Comparatively, ISIS have used terror throughout the globe rather than being localized to either colonial or England. To invoke fear and excitement (for supporters) to their cause, they have used the tactic of terror from the beginning. This tactic has helped place ISIS firmly in the medias headlines thus bolstering the media offensive
Nationalism, political expression and religious extremism are totally heavy motivators for security terrorism. Nationalism being the largest motive, foreign fighters have started joining the cause, invoking jihad and using religion as a motivator to promote international terrorism.
His father named Mohammad Taqi Shariati was a reform minded cleric and lived his life by doing lecture in his own religious hall (Bayat, a: 1990). His father strong advocacy for reforms in Iran had influenced Shariati’s intellectual mind the most. Despite their family including his father being shiites, the conservative Ulama of Iran accused his father as a Sunni Muslim and a Wahhabi (Abrahamian, 1982). Wahabbi the ideologue of Sunni Saudi Arabia, is Iran’s enemy in terms of propagation of religion due to some differences although both are Muslims. The major difference between Sunni and Shi’a is the issue of who succeeds Prophet Muhammad.
ISIS is formidably armed with captured U.S. weapons, and its forces are led by highly trained officers who deserted Iraq's army in disgust with Maliki. It is rich with cash from captured oil, and its success is drawing a steady supply of fresh recruits, including Europeans and Americans. ISIS desires to attack the United States directly, and left unmolested it will acquire the means to do
The New Yorker article ‘Journey to Jihad’ by Ben Taub, illustrates the story of why teenagers are joining ISIS. There are several reasons why Muslims from Europe appear to be more susceptible to radicalization unlike Muslims from the United States. These reasons have resulted in Europe contributing
In addition, the Department of State stated that these reported terrorist attacks were aimed at attaining an economic or religious goal. The Department of State conducted further research and found that the terrorist groups that committed the most attacks were the Taliban, Boko Haram, and Al-Qaeda/ ISIS. These terrorist groups were bred in impoverished parts of the world and accounted for approximately 16% of all terrorist attacks committed in 2012 (Department of State). Based on the evidence presented it is clear that economic deprivation and terrorism have a correlation. The third cause of terrorism is a result of globalization.
