Jihad is supposed to be an internal struggle however; people often confuse it with an external struggle in which they use violence for dominance. “Despite the fact that Jihad is not supposed to include aggressive warfare, this has occurred. Jihad means to counter such threats and assert the predominance of Islam.” Intercollegiate Review; Spring2002, Vol. 37 Issue 2, p24-32, 9p Just and Unjust War in the Terrorist Age. Many people consider Jihad to be a movement which causes a problem in the Muslim community because of the misinterpretation of the religious beliefs.
In the documentary, Michael Moore claims that catalyzed fears for good or wrong reasons lead people to violence. Issues such as racism, unsustained fear and violence will be discussed in this essay. Living in fears… If there is one thing that unites Americans, it is the intense, and often deadly, fear of the other and even sometimes of each other. Michael Moore is taking a deep look into the American culture. Long after the years where they had to fight for their land and their freedom (by the way, at the expense of the American Indians), they seem to have become completely paranoid.
Therefore, it can be said that religion can be used as a form of cultural defence against the rapidly increasing West. The use of religion as a cultural defence is very evident in modern times with the rise of Fundamentalism. Those from ethnic minorities opposing Western values so much that they are willing to kill others and themselves to prove this. The clash of civilisations has been evident between Islam and the West for hundreds of years but became known throughout the world after the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Fundamentalists are using religion to defend their culture in a negative way and have thus created a stigma for ethnic minorities.
Ethnocentrism can be detrimental to a society, because it can lead to false accusitions about a certain group of people, like the Muslims today. When people think of Muslims, the automatically think they are a terriost. All muslims aren’t terrorist and have a lot to offer this world, but we tend to label them as a terrorist because of the media and society. 3. Define emigration and immigration.
He has used profound acts of hatred to wage a deadly war against all of Western Civilization in the name of Islam. Through his acts of terrorism, he has not only negatively influenced the United States, but also portrayed a violently abysmal image for all Muslims, and has become a denotation of abhorrence world wide. Osama bin Laden performed many attacks against the United States and
Just because you are the same religion, color, or even in the same family as these people doesn’t define the person that you are. Everybody is different in their heart, and have their own ways as a human. Now we see on television or even in real life, that Islamic people are getting mistreated and talked about because of 9-11. All of this brought the beginning of war with terrorism, on Afghanistan and Iraq. This war has caused so much drama and conflicts to the United States as well as many other countries which includes our presidents, many human lives, and not to forget our military branches.
A terrorist threat/ attack and a nuclear threat are real attacks that still go on today in our country and our people are scared of. In my opinion both of them are alike. They make the government have to evaluate everything that is going on and it deters the economic growth in our community, on this causes the government to take advantage of their view of defense against an upcoming attack. A war and an attack such as 9/11 are two different types of attacks. And these are attacks that people will forever remember.
People were so upset because they were afraid that sending troops to Iraq would take the focus off of Afghanistan and the mission to find Bin Laden. Seeing the way that people just turn against and decide that they want to kill innocent people just does not make since. Looking at this serious situation, many people see that the September 11th attacks badly because it was more of a modern day situation. Also it was in the United States, which we live in. The attack was a very tragic and hurting time in American history.
The ensuing events were also volatile and unpredictable as American troops were sent to Afghanistan and other related developments unfolded between Pakistan and India, and between Israel and the Arab world. Media usage increased as people sought to find out about the events, understand the causes and monitor new developments. Unfortunately, higher media usage does not necessarily translate to better understanding, given that the President's explanations consisted of naive statements such as "Why do they hate us so much? They hate our freedoms – our freedom of religion, our freedom of speech, our freedom to vote..." and then "I'm amazed that there's such misunderstanding of what our country is about that people would hate us ... I just can't believe it because I know how good we are."
The face of Criminal Justice and its laws has forever been changed, largely in part due to the KKK. Had Congress and Politicians been able to foresee what effect the KKK would have on the US and set in place measures to stop them before they became powerful, would the hate crimes and hate groups of today be as prominent? There will always be hatred in the world. There will always be people, groups, and organizations that do not agree or accept certain lifestyles, religions, races, and ethnicity. Perhaps though, had the KKK and those that
