Misperceptions and Misunderstanding of Islam in western Countries and societies, specifically in the United States of America Nedim Kapic Introduction: Ever since the tragic and horrific events of 9/11 , the global image of Islam has been altered negatively. While it is true that misperceptions are present all over the globe, they mainly occur in western civilization and western societies. This study will therefore, focus on the United States of America and the problems and misunderstanding Muslims living there have to encounter in their daily lives. The central question I want to cover is where this misunderstanding comes from , how it affects Muslims and what we can do to educate and inform people to show what Islam really is about. Too often is it that we see images of radical Islamic organizations or images of woman with seemingly no rights.
Characteristics of Orientalism, Prejudice and Discrimination Jessica Axia College of University of Phoenix Characteristics of Orientalism, Prejudice and Discrimination There has been a lot of confusion regarding the real differences between Arabs and Muslims. Most of the time, these differences are even unrecognized by many people. Looking at it closely, the differences are actually obvious and simple. Arabs are settlers in the Middles East, with Arabic as their native language. Muslims, on the other hand, are found all over the world, and are followers of the religion called Islam.
The church we are talking about in this context is more the organized institution of church and not the sanctuaries some people confide in or, the community that the Sunday sermon can bring to people. The extreme radicals in religion are prevalent in all religions in the world and these will frequently get predicated against all people who are part of these religions. These stereotypes are almost always negative and most of the times they are not even close to the truth. The most dominant stereotype in our western world is of course faced towards Muslims. These stereotypes can be dangerous because it generates hate and fear making otherwise intelligent people
Sentences such as this one made the people scared and angry at the Muslims and may have change their opinions of the Muslims. Consequently making them want to kill them because of all the ordeals. Urban also used the technique of causing people to change themselves through integrity. This is shown in the sentence when he says ‘He that loveth father or mother more than me, is not worthy of me’. People wanted to have others honor them which caused many to join the crusade.
There has been uproar the past couple of weeks over the very amateur Anti-Islamic film "Innocence of Muslims". Many Muslims across the world have resorted to violence to express their anger towards this film. Events like this make Americans want to reiterate their rights to freedom of speech and expression, to the government, and to the rest of the world. Draw Muhammad Day is a day that people go out and draw depictions of the Islamic prophet, Muhammad (S). While this is very disrespectful and angering to Allah (SWT), the prophet (S) and the Muslim population, we must realize that our response must be controlled, reasonable, and civilized, in order that we convey our feelings and messages to others.
What are the reasons for anti-Islamic propaganda in Britain? Introduction. Since Britain’s involvement in the Iraq conflict, it is evident that racial hatred has increased between, predominantly, the white and Islamic communities of the nation. Britain is a multi-cultural society which in general welcomes people of all races, religions, creeds and cultures. However, more recently there has been a lot of tension between patriotic Britons and Muslims which has led to a lot of anti-Islamic propaganda among the British public.
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).
The differences between Arabs and Muslims are Muslims are followers of the Islamic religion and Arabs are an ethnic group. Basically, it's the exact same as the difference between being 'White' and being 'Christian'. Although many Muslims are Arab and a large number of Arabs are Muslim, there are many non-Arab Muslims. There are also many Arabs who are Christian, Hindu, Buddhist, Agnostic, Atheist, etc. Unfortunately, due to the many Islamic terrorist organizations in the world and their many threats or attacks on the different populations, many people have discriminated against persons who are, or who are believed to be, Arab or Muslim, regardless of what those persons actually believe or practice.
Muslims tend to treat women so unfairly due to these scriptures written in the holy book. The Muslim beliefs are strong and whatever is written in the Qur’an, is the truth to them and what they act upon. Most of what is written in the Qur’an can cause many Muslims to look at women as if they are creations like the animals, plants, etc. that are brought to the world by Allah. They also believe that women lack many of the traits that men possess, along with gratitude and intelligence.
