Global Terrorism And Mass Media

Better Essays
The articles used in this analysis demonstrate the reasons behind global terrorism and Mass media biased. Global Terrorism is a very critical issue and should not be overlooked. "terrorism has continuously increased in the past few years, particularly in the regions that are under America 's military influence". ("US main reason behind spread of terrorism" 2011, paragraph 1). However, there is huge concern for Muslim society about false media propaganda against them (religion). "the westerners began attributing all negative issues (terrorism) to the holy Islam"(Afghan Paper calls on USA to define what terrorism is 2007, paragraph 4). Keeping in mind, this research paper is going to depict a combination of logical and emotional appeals used …show more content…
the article talks and demand a study to find out the main reason behind horrific terrorism attacks (9/11). This article is more persuasive than the former, because it provides some evidence and information to support the thesis. For example, "Why Al-qa 'idah needed to do this as no wise human brothers including Muslims and hurts anyone without any reason".(Afghan paper calls on USA to define what terrorism is, 2007, paragraph 3). there has to be a super power behind, who is funding terrorist and paying them under the table to commence such acts against entire world, "to achieve its strategic objectives ". The author uses ample emotional appeals in the article to convince audience and define who are the terrorist in reality. "If someone kills or torture someone is called terrorist, but if someone else targets villages and countryside is not terrorist, but is called protector of human rights" (Afghan paper calls on USA to define what terrorism is, 2007, paragraph 6). The author pointing out USA presence in Afghanistan and Iraq in the name of war on terror. this has pro and cons as it demolish terrorist territories/ structure but at the same time it cause hundreds of innocents casualties in the country side. However, this statement is ironic to all those Americans who are serving their country. Furthermore, there is another strong emotional appeal "we condemn terror and terrorism, but we want clear definition of terrorism" .(Afghan paper calls on USA to define what terrorism is,2007, paragraph 8). This is a point of view of entire Muslim society and it condemn all terrorist attack against non-Muslims and Muslims. Therefore it is very important for media community to stop linking terrorism to Islam and using term 'Islamic terrorism ' as they are discharge from Islam and have own beliefs and also mind set. terrorist go through a whole process

The Taliban, Al-Qaeda and likeminded groups have posed a threat to the well being of not just Americans, but the rest of the world. The US has every reason to be fighting terrorism and the people associated with it. Brave men and women are giving up their lives and sense of security to keep Americans safe and free.…

    The title of being Muslim in the western world is a title of being in a list of a terrorist.

    This is why the concept of risk society referring to the methods that pressent day society respond to risk, is rightly employed because there work they reflect on all probable occurrence that the government may face while imposing regulations. For instance, they referred to the globalisation process of terrorism, and how boundaries are defeated because of technology and industrial development. (Mythen and Walklate 2008 : 224) This example does not only talk about the weapons used, or technology to pass informations but introduces the notion of time and space. Barbaby furthers this notion, by stating that terrorist organisation involved and persuaded by the movement al- Queda would be believed to live in 60 different countries (Barbaby 2002 ; 131). Hence, it is complex to regulate terrorist attempts due to their unpredictable…

    They are same in the end when they both send out threats to the enemy, destruction and justice will be sent to the one who tries to change the way we live. Bush tries to build up America and tell them it will be ok. Bin Laden tries to instil fear into America and show his dislike for America and the war going on and the reasoning behind it. These speeches had big effects and represent a heavy and pinnacle place in American history and world history. It was the first real terrorist attack the world had seen and the first introduction of terrorism. Bush states that America is ok and still strong and will overcome the attacks move on and be stronger because of it.…

    President Obama in Homeland Security Presidential Directive 7 says, “terrorists seek to destroy, incapacitate, or exploit critical infrastructure and key resources across the United States to threaten national security, cause mass casualties, weaken our economy, and damage public morale and confidence” (POTUS, 2015). So how do we protect these assets? When you think about how big this country is and all the infrastructure that is spread about, it is hard to have a 100% plan to protect it all from all hazards. This is where a risk assessment is done and the government decides on which are more dangerous to the public, more accessible, and more desirable to attack. You will notice, major dams and nuclear power sites will have…

    There is an extremist group called ISIS and they are a terrorist group that is going around and killing innocent amounts of people. My place on the issue is that we need to work together to help secure our countries ' safety and to make sure our people are working together not against each other. I do not agree with any extremist group. They all are just out for blood and non have the right reason to protest against anyone. My conviction is that we should get a law that if you are in an extremist group that is a part of a criminal act then you deserve punishment as a domestic terrorist.…

The 9/11 attack was a major event that made every Muslim suddenly turn into a “terrorist” (Lichtblau). People like Ahmad Khan Rahami, the accused attacker in the New Jersey and New York bombings, are reasons why Muslims still continue to be seen as suspected terrorists (“How to really discuss radical Islam”). According to Rucker, most terrorists are Muslim and come from Muslim nations. Plus “denying that all terrorists are Muslims insults our common sense” (“How to really discuss radical Islam”).…
