A date that has gone down infamously in America’s history is the tragic event that occurred on September 11, 2001. This date was a turning point in the world, and many changes could be seen, such as the addition of the TSA in airports and increased security. However, one of the lesser known effects was the sense of fear that was unconsciously instilled within our communities. Today, this fear is represented through our heightened awareness towards terrorism, and the increased distance we tend to place between ourselves and our fellow community members. While 9/11 was a day most noted for its horrific display of terror and the loss of many lives, it was also the day that we, as a nation, lost our sense of security and replaced it with a sense
Islam is a religion of hate and oppression. The Muslims have conquered and assimilated countries in the past just like how they are doing it now. Islamic people are immigrating to America to radicalize Americans and create terrorist cells. There are many Muslims that come to America for a better life, yet even if a small percentage of those coming to America are radical, the consequences are far-reaching. A small group of these immigrants, can enter highly populated areas and kill many people like they did in the Boston Marathon Bombing terrorist attack.
The measure that criminals go to commit hate crimes is just devastating and harsh. These kinds of violence cause harm and strike fear in people not only in London but also places hearing of these horrific events. Nobody wants to be harassed or attacked for something that certain individuals in their culture did, and be stereotyped as that one
Bush and his administration in reference to the United States of America post-9/11 policies. to place it more accurately, he argues that the Bush administration skillfully used the shock that affected the country once the fear attacks, so as to attain its own goals, as well as the war in Iraq and Afghanistan. The author stands on the bottom that the United States of America authorities used mass media as means that of pressure on the mass audience. Moreover, media served as suggests that of psychological pressure on Americans since they accelerated the worry that flooded minds and souls of American individuals. At a similar time, the author implies that American’ reasoning skills were much unfit due to the overwhelming power of mass media that bombarded the consciousness of American citizens with terrible news and even additional terrible forecasts regarding the longer term of the USA (Gore, 2007).
Many innocent people got killed because of this conflict between the government and the Islamic extremist group. When religious and cultural extremists get involved with the politics or capture the state power, it can definitely lead to a global security threat. It is because the extremists can use all of the sources or power over that certain state as much as they
He mentioned at the beginning of his speech that “whether we bring enemies to justice or bring justice to our enemies, justice will be done.” He also emphasized at the ending part of his speech “we’ll meet violence with patience justice”. In this latter sentence, Bush was clearly using “patience justice” in place of “slow revenge”. The notion of justice could be subject to different interpretations by the audience; however, judging from the context of his entire speech, Bush deliberately distorted the meaning of “justice” to fulfill his propaganda. While he seemed to be talking about justice while he meant war and
It’s crazy how society takes more action on imaginary scenarios rather than real-life situations. The government is so scared of what the outcome of its decision will be that it doesn’t act in the most efficient ways. This is why the government isn’t always the best with following through with these executions. The CNN article claimed how from 1978-1995, there was a so-called “Unabomber” that was held responsible for a string of mail bombings, resulting in the deaths of three people and the injuries of many others.
Therefore, Islamophobia has reached a point where people start discriminating non-Muslims because they look like they are Muslim! Recently, Islamophobia researchers interviewed non-Muslim, South Asian men with beards about their experiences of Islamophobia. According to one of them,
One example linking Islam to terror and violence would be the Oklahoma City Bombing that took place on an American government building, April 19 1995, which killed, many innocent people including children. This is then, followed by how stereotypical and how fast assumptions are made towards the Muslim community as discussed by Patel (1999) stating that a British newspaper front cover of, Today, emerged the following day with a picture of a fireman carrying a dead baby with the headline, “In the name of Islam.” Later it was then established that Christian militants had in fact carried out the bombing. From this issue, it clearly shows a trend on how Islam is misrepresented and assumed as being evil, just by a short headline and a picture of a fireman carrying a dead baby. It is a form of language, a sign or message in which they are trying to imply to the masses that Islam is killing innocent people in the name of God
WTC became a target of a massive terrorist attack that took the lives of nearly 3,000 people. It made US announced to all countries around the world to fight terrorism. Thru that issue, it made some organizations in the world almost be broken. The example is Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). Issue which was announced by US to fight terrorism made some countries in ASEAN opine that some of their members was the “nest” of
The assassination of Osama Bin Laden occurred due to cultural reason; however, it was justified. Osama Bin Laden discriminated against americans, he caused one of the most horrific terrorist attack in american history which is 911 and he killed up to 2977 people in one day. Critics, however, some may argue that the assassination was unjustified, due to the Persian Gulf war also known as Operation Desert Shield where american troops invaded Saudi Arabia and killed over a 1000 civilians and injured even more this is a valid reason why Osama Bin Laden would have a vendetta against the american nation. The assassination of Osama Bin Laden occurred on May 2, 2011 over ballistic trauma which is a gunshot wound to the head in Abbottabad, Pakistan.
But if attacks like this keep happening, it could start happening more, and more, and spread to bigger cities across this once great nation. Which has been polluted with political filth like Donald Trump and Sarah Palin. Pathetic. But, point being if these situations are not halted immediately, then only more angst and anger will boil till the point of simmering off and burst into violent outrage.
FLQ’s total disregard for human lives was evident from their most devastating attack on the Montreal stock exchange, on Feb. 13th 1969, This explosion caused massive destruction, estimated in the millions of dollars, and seriously injured 27 people. Despite such gruesome acts by the terrorist organization like FLQ, the authorities in the province of Quebec seemed powerless as they were unable to raid and make arrest of suspects unless they are granted warrants, which sometimes took months to obtain. Some people might argue that only two high profile kidnappings don’t provide
ISIS is a clan formed in Iraq and they despise our country and the muslims located in it. ISIS is also responsible for a lot of bombings we hear about today. ISIS was responsible for a major terrorist attack on Paris a few months ago. Paris was bombed in a hotel and many people killed or severely injured during the terrorist attacks performed by ISIS.
As time elapsed from September 11, 2001, the public began to break ideas about who was to blame for the attacks on September 11. A vast majority believed that the 9/11 attacks were solely to blame from the Islamist radical group, Al-Qaeda, a terrorist regime that sought to rebel against western civilization norms and enact their hate among the United States. The other idea, which is highly noted as a conspiracy theory, was that government knew the terrorist attacks were likely to happen and the only reason the government took a back seat was to conduct a reason to mobilize troops into the war-riddled Middle East. Whether the public believed either or, a paranoia was created, later to be recognized as Post-9/11 Paranoia. This paranoia would harbor certain ideals in American brains, creating a specific view and caution for certain areas, actions and personnel.
