Pope Urban II Speech Why did pope Urban’s speech generate support for the first crusade? Pope Urban II’s speech generated large amounts of support for the first crusade because he use a wide range of tactical appeals. In Urban’s speech he used technique of defamatory language to make Muslims sound like terrible people. This was shown when said ‘an accursed race, a race utterly alienated from god’ and ‘They circumcise the Christian, and the blood of the circumcision they either spread upon the altars or pour into vases of the baptismal font’. Sentences such as this one made the people scared and angry at the Muslims and may have change their opinions of the Muslims.
In any form, terrorism sends a message. Terrorists, governments, and the media see the function, roles and responsibilities of the media when covering terrorists’ events from differing and often competing perspectives. Such perspectives drive behavior during terrorist incidents, often resulting in both tactical and strategic gains to the terrorist operation and overall terrorist cause. The challenge to both the governmental and press communities is to understand the dynamics of terrorist enterprise and to develop policy options designed to serve the interests of government, the media, and the society. Terrorists must have publicity in some form if they are to gain attention, inspire fear and respect, and secure favorable understanding of their cause, if not their act.
Islamophobia and 9/11 The September 11 attacks were a sequence of synchronized attacks by the radical group of Al-Qaeda upon the US on the 11th of September 2001.

The US has on more than one occasion listed countries such as Cuba, Iran, Libya, North Korea, Sudan and Syria as counties guilty of state sponsored terrorism. On the other hand, we have transnational terrorism, which can be attributed to the increasing numbers of INGOs. The best way to define what transnational terrorism is by saying that it’s an organized and internationally operated organization that commits worldwide terrorism, and most well known of these groups is Al Qaeda. Over the course of about twenty-five years or so, Al Qaeda has claimed responsibility for 9/11 as well as the 2005 rush-hour attack on the London bus and subway system.
