Americans know “racial profiling is both morally wrong and ineffective”, but they rather be safe than sorry (Chavez 563). Americans only get the idea that all middle easterners are terrorists because media has taken the role of portraying them in such a way to plants terror in Americans (Spurlock). People have gotten to the point of people being “singled out” because of looking certain way or because people around them feel uncomfortable (Chavez 569).
Cyber terrorists can be motivated to target organizations that will result in the radical’s group to cause the most harm and/or receive the most attention for their party. Cyberterrorists use the internet to spread propaganda and enlist new members and use DoS/DDoS attacks to cause disruption to companies that represent actions against their belief’s (Vacca & Rudolph, 2011). Cyber terrorists can also steal information to be used for self-serving strategic purposes. Kostadinov (2012) makes the distinction between cybercrime and cyberterrorism in that the latter should resemble terrorist attacks via traditional methods but perpetrated virtually. Kostadinov goes on to note that most cyberterrorism actions are generally focused on website sabotage and email blasting.
They were killed publicly and they were heckled all the while. Another case like this was when Maximilien Robespierre, the father of the “Terror”, was killed. These are just a few of the many cases of the guillotine being used to send a message to the people (Document 7). The guillotine was also fearsome in that it did not always kill instantly. At times the victim could be alive for seconds, even minutes, following the blow (Document 5).
In this paper we will examine the impact of 9/11 on Americans and the U.S. economy and why the U.S. responded to the terrorism by enacting the USA Patriot act to “protect” America, which had become a big controversial issue to Americans. Another topic we will discuss is the negative effects of the Patriot Act such as violating Americans civil liberties and how the government stereotyped and secretly arrested Arab or Muslim citizens. The tragedy of 9/11 has impacted America in many ways and ever since then, America has made a lot of changes to prevent another tragedy, such as the national security which is tighter than it has ever been in recent years, especially in airports. According to Jennie Wood’s article, she mentions that the airport has way too many restrictions on what to bring in the plane for every traveler, such as, “Liquids and toiletries have to be a certain size and placed in clear, sealed bags. No food or bottled water is allowed through security.
When children start to abuse the convenience of the internet by harassing other people, the internet becomes very dangerous. What makes cyber bullying so dangerous? Cyber bullying is dangerous because it has the ability to take the smallest incident and build up so much tension around it that it results in a murder or suicide. Some people may blame the victim for lacking self control and not being able to ignore the situation. Some people may claim it was just a joke and may blame the victim for being too sensitive or insecure.
After the invasion of Iraq the western world and muslim world have continued to have various conflicts which have all begun from the invasion of Iraq. An example of this is the 7th of Jul 2007 underground and bus bombings which were related back to the invasion of Iraq. Sources Q and V back up this idea as it talks about how the communications between us and the muslim world were not help as a cause of the war in Iraq. Another reason as to why Iraq has become such an important factor is because of the controversy behind the alleged possession of WMD’s by Iraq. This is not such an important reason as no WMD’s were never found in Iraq and has not had a longlasting effect on our relationship with the muslim world.
The United States has always somewhat judged the Muslims and Arab people. We are so quick to judge people for the color of their skin and not by the person they are. Terrorism is a big issue in the U.S. Is it that the other countries can’t understand what we’re trying to do in this country or are they just jealous. This nation is in crisis and we as a people know this but are too afraid to speak on it. The Security of the United States relies on the government and the People.
We walk the fine line today with the paranoia surrounding “home-grown” terrorists. In the climate of warfare, paranoia is magnified and civil liberties are suspended. With the fear of terrorism, or civil unrest such as the Occupy movement, the current administration as gone so far as to sign the NDAA act, in blatant disregard for civil rights. It is easy to condemn Salem, or Joseph McCarthy, but what really has changed since, other than the players and the
Chapter 1 Introduction and Statement of the Problem Introduction Phishing is the term used to describe massive e-mails that trick recipients into revealing their personal or company confidential information, such as social security and financial account numbers, account passwords and other identity or security information.

The aim of phishing is to steal a user’s identity in order to make fraudulent transactions as if the Phishers were the user .In a typical phishing attempt, you will receive an authentic-looking email message that
After the shocking events, such as the terrorist attacks on the Twin Towers, the controversial debates on whether Islam plays a major role in foreign policy decision-making broke out. Following works on the topic were not able to reveal the nature of political Islam (Tibi, 2009). The term “politicization of Islam” is controversial and difficult to define. One reason is that the religion of Islam and its teachings differ depending on the region and culture. To be more precise, politicization of Islam means politicization of Islamism, which is an extreme radical wing of Islam.
