Davidsson explains that the assumption that conspiracy theories are a paranoia style made media critical of presenting such theories. Hence, the media’s report obtained from the government blinded the public into believing Al-Qaeda, a radical Islamic terrorist, was responsible for the attack. Davidsson gave numerous examples to show the US government’s constant obsession with secrecy regarding what had happened on 9/11. Davidsson makes it clear to readers that the US government has not provided any legitimate evidence that shows the nineteen hijackers relationship with Al-Qaeda. The evidence given by Davidsson is not sufficient to make readers believe that 9/11 was an inside job.

In chapter seven of The God Delusion, Richard Dawkins discusses morality is not, in fact, rooted in religion, rather a part of a “changing moral Zeitgeist,” as the chapter title suggests. Throughout the chapter, Dawkins provides evidence from the New and Old Testaments to show the immorality of religion and how it is impossible that morals were a result of religion. Though constructive, Dawkins’ arguments fall weak to some extent. Firstly, he fails to define morality clearly, as it can be subjective. In addition, he narrows the scope of the argument by constructing a diatribe exclusively regarding Abrahamic religions mainly Judaism and Christianity.
A great terror struck our nation September 11, 2001, two aircraft’s hit the world trade centers, killing 2000 people and injuring over twice as many. A third aircraft flew into the Pentagon while a fourth crashed in a rural area in Pennsylvania.

Nearly three years later, in an attempt to figure out what happened on that tragic day, scholars came together to discuss the possible parallels between foreign and domestic terrorist. The author, Michael Kimmel, outlines the possible cause of the 2001 attacks and offers us a link between both foreign and domestic terrorism.

What stood out to me was that Osama wouldn’t claim responsibility for the worst terrorist attack on United States soil. He would point the finger back at the United States, but why wouldn’t the most infamous terrorist claim responsibility for the attack? As I explored the validity of the conspiracy I was presented with more questions than answers. If it wasn’t Al-Qaeda than who can it possible be? Naomi Klein in her book brought up an interesting term, shock therapy.
But what is terrorism, why do people resort to it, and is there anything that can be done? In this paper, I will answer these questions and argue Max Abrahams views that terrorists are simply disenfranchised people seeking to belong.
