Helping to demonize those responsible, the initial language used by the President and later incorporated by the press, has since served as a political weapon from which to fight ³the war against terrorism.² In that the President¹s speech evoked from his audience (most notably the American people) feelings of fear, terror, anger, and hatred, the appeal has been to the public¹s emotions and senses rather than their ration and intellect.Instilling a strong sense of nationalism and pride, the implications of the President¹s speech are already being felt.Framed in colors of red, white and blue, were such headlines that read: ³America Under-Attack,² ³The War Against Terror ² and ³The Attack on America²; all the while, urgent ticket taped me...

Revolution and Terror in France, 1789-1795 (Longman 1974) .The government felt such events ‘threatened’ the revolution and as Doyle states: “the system of Terror established itself by force of circumstance”.According to Boscher, “The Terror was based on the violence of the populous led mainly by educated leaders who approved of popular violence on ideological grounds” .Although at first the Terror was used in conjunction with the ideals, in the end the search for “Liberty, Equality and Fraternity” was forgotten by those in power, and the Terror was indeed the triumph of violence of ideals.The war was not going well for France, there were increasing food shortages, tax, inflation and growing numbers of counter-revolutionaries, especia...

The west is not an innocent victim of terrorism.I encourage those with the mindset that the west is the innocent victim to further analyse the actions the western countries have taken in regard to terrorism, and not always focus on what the mainstream media tells us.While the impact of terrorism on the West is by far more predominant in the media, it is easy to understand the majority of sympathy is pointed in that direction, however on deeper analysis and whilst maintaining a partial ethical view, I disagree with this because the West are the ones suffering the least from the impacts of terrorism, and are the ones who in fact created its own perpetrator.For what we see is only a small fraction in a biased ‘westernised’ lens from what is...

Similarly, for Elshtain (2002) in her article How to Fight a Just War, the aim of terrorism is terror.He further notes that ‘even if one were to grant that terrorism necessarily involves the killing of innocents, this alone does not place it beyond the scope of just war theory, for innocents may be killed in a just war.‘Acts of terrorism target the safety of innocent citizens, of non-combatants, and it is an analysis of the status of non-combatants that shows that terrorism, as we commonly understand it, is not compatible with just war theory.’ Moreover, he criticises Valls definition of terrorism for being too broad and by doing so, Valls extends the umbrella under which certain political violence can be labelled as terrorism.Elshtain, ...

Lynch’s (2010) work entitled “Academic vs. Bush: a War on Error” which exposes the lapses in judgment with regards the Bush administration’s decision to wage war against Saddam Hussein’s regime.It discusses the utility of scholars to be part of the government of think-tanks within the Bush administration and how these think-tanks were there to primari...

Also Bianchi and Keller stated that “the irony is that their [democracies’] distinguishing traits and foundational tenets in many ways constitute fertile ground for international terrorism.” Namely the free speech right might be able to raise some violent reactions from the outside, when for example, like in Denmark, cartoons with Mohammed wearing a turban with a shape of a bomb (among other cartoons with the prophet) were drawn.In my opinion, however, (and even though the regressions might not be statistically significant in proving that there is an inverted relationship between terrorism and political and civil rights) a more empirical analysis would suggest that it can really exist and might even embody a trend to getting worse in ne...

The majority of people would find it offensive to justify Osama Bin Laden’s involvement in the September 11th attacks, and though many may argue that the war has proved highly negative, portraying Saddam Hussein as an innocent man even though he has murdered hundreds of Kurdish opposition and sent thousands of young men to their death in needless wars against Middle Eastern states.On the one hand we were seeing from the British and American perspective the ease in which Western machinery ploughed through southern Iraq, but on the other many saw the horror of war, the children killed in cross fire, the inevitable bombed hospital, the father who loses his entire family to a stray American bomb.At the outbreak of war, many news corporations...

We will define terrorism here as a "politically motivated tactic involving the threat or the use of force or violence".Before turning to our analysis of the interactions between religion and terrorism, we shall firstly seek elements in the definition of both of the potential causal relationship.As for terrorism, its definition is rooted in a sharp definitional academic debate.For Durkheim, as a matter of fact, the system to which religion is related indicates the good and bad habits one ought to have, while our given definition of terrorism makes no mention of religion.To conclude, religions act as normative systems that inherently contain, in their sacred texts, the roots of social reprehension and violence, so far as the prohibited beh...
