INTERNATIONAL TERRORISM By John Freel. This was a very difficult project for me to carry out, coming from an area were racial discrimination is almost non existent were only sometimes does religious bigotry raise it's ugly head, but not nearly in the proportions of this project. Ku Klux Klan, is a secret terrorist organisation that originated in the southern states during the period of Reconstruction following the American Civil War and was reactivated on a wider geographic basis in the 20th century. The original Klan was organised in Pulaski, Tennessee, on December 24, 1865, by six former Confederate army officers who gave their society a name taken from the Greek word kuklos, which means c ...

Domestic Terrorism - 1,643 words
Trent Kenmai 5/15/00 Over the past few years a new threat has been encountered by the United States. This threat does not come from away, but from within. It is know as domestic terrorism. This has been seen over the past decade in the form of violence and terrorism across the United States. This has become a threat to American security and the American people in general. To battle against this issue, Congress has upheld the Anti-Terrorism Act in 1996. One of the best examples on examining these acts of uproar can be viewed, seen and understood by studying the case of the Oklahoma bombing which occurred in 1996. Major newspaper headlines have also described the World Trade Center bombing, th ...

He feels that all Christians and ...

Real Face Of Terrorism - 1,503 words
Terrorism in the Websters New American Dictionary is defined as the systematic use of intense fear as a means of coercion. In this day and age, the term terrorism is more than just the use of intense fear as a means of coercion but includes the use of terrorism as a means of revenge and pure sport and also as a means of suppression. While the dictionaries definitions says that it is the use coercion to promote certain ideologies, some of the most cleverly hidden terrorism today is the terrorism used to suppress some ideologies or certain ethnic groups or societies. The popular image of terrorism is of extremist groups trying to rebel or promote their ideologies by blowing up airplanes, buses ...

I know the assignment was to deal with a certain aspect of terrorism, but I can't seem to keep my opinions based on one kind without comparing it to other acts of terrorism. Terrorism is defined in Webster's New World Dictionary as, "to use force or threats to intimidate, etc., especially as a political policy." Intimidate is similarly defined as, "to make afraid, as with threats." Threats is a common word used in both definitions and when people are threatened, they feel terror therefore they are terrorized. Terrorism doesn't always come with the stereotypical Russians or Middle Eastern rebels that want to attack the US. Terror can come from all ages, races, political beliefs, and countries ...

Large inner city schools have metal detectors at the doors but sometimes that doesn't stop all the potentially harmful objects from entering the school. It is a step in the right direction but not all schools need them so desperately or can't afford them. For now, we need to try to deal with it as it comes and maybe educate the teachers on what to do in different types of terrorist attacks. Attacks on abortion clinics are terroristic too. I am not going to get in hard on my beliefs because that is not the topic and it could be a whole other paper in its self.

The United States has become the target of the most recent terrorist attacks because of its political involvement in the middle east.

Their involvement began in the early 80s when they were called to help out Isreal, an ally which was being harrasses by Palestine. Their presence has been felt there since and the U.S. has acted like International Police.

The U.S. first became involved in the middle east whe ...

Terrorism, until the recent attacks on the US, has remained a dormant issue in the media. Although it has been around for centuries, the organised use of violence to target non-combatants for political purposes, is one of the most effective ways to gain media attention. Mainly used by extremist groups in the hopes of gaining recognition for their cause (wether it is religious, political or otherwise.) Several attacks on the US have recently made headlines The attack on the USS Cole (October 12, 2000), US Embassy bombings in Kenya + Tanzania (August 7, 1998), Oklahoma City bombing (April 19, 1995) and finally the World Trade Centre bombing on February 27 1993.

If we do not counter terrorism with force and more force, then we are holding the gun against our own heads. This view is shared by some of the most powerful men in the world. George Bush, for example, was willing to spend millions of dollars and use thousands of lives to express his support of the idea. He and his followers have refused to see what is plainly in front of them that people who have lost too much in Americas conquests are the mastermind of terrorism. Killing more of these people will only spark more anger and cause more attacks, and there will undoubtedly be heavy losses on both sides if force is used. It has also become apparent that the only purpose of Americas attack on Ir ...

Two To Tango - War Is Not The Answer To Terrorism - 488 words
The Associated Press has quoted 19-year-old Colin Zaremba, whose own name suggests immigrant origins, as saying, Im proud to be an American, and I hate Arabs and I always have. It seems like everyone is proud to be an American these days, however, like Zaremba, most people, especially Americas adolescents, know nothing about being one. Being patriotic doesnt mean scurrying to your local Wal-Mart and buying the U.S. flag gear or harassing Arabs; its much more than that. The democratic ideals of this country are hoisted up high around this world by our flag. Everything that our country stands for is symbolized in our flag and like Zaremba, Im afraid our leaders dont realize that. The leading p ...

Terrorism - My Best Essay On The Topic - 2,158 words
H2>1. What is terrorism? Terrorism is hard to define. In its broadest sense terrorism can be thought of as the use or threatened use of force against civilians designed to bring about political or social change. Moreover, while we think of terrorism as being both a political and irrational act (especially suicide terrorism), terrorism can also be thought of as a rational act conducted specifically because of the impact -- fear, confusion, submission -- it will have. Given the U.S. government's pledge to wage a war against terrorism, it is important to look at its definitions. According to both the Department of Defense (DOD) and the FBI, terrorism is "the unlawful use of force or violence ag ...

Finally, we should remember that the Crusades or Inquisition, which were executed largely through terroristic means, were authorized directly by the Church. Arriving at Islam, the concept of Jihad, or "struggle," which in recent decades has been at the theological core of justifying Muslim acts of terrorism, traditionally meant the spiritual and moral struggle of an individual Muslim against his or her evil inclinations. The lesser jihad, that is, war against other human beings, is in classical Muslim sources a "defensive" war with limits that cannot be "transgressed," even when fighting those who "try to force you to adopt another religio ...

A War On Drugs Becomes A "war On Terrorism" - 1,252 words
The so-called war on drugs has long been an issue in the national press. As long as I can remember, campaigns like "just say no" have been encouraging children to stay away from illegal drugs. In the last few years, however, simple slogans have mutated into aggressively and often erroneously exaggerated media assaults. The purpose of such messages is to frighten drug users and prospective drug users into abstaining from use and to turn the public eye onto drugs in general. Two television commercials appeared during the 2002 Superbowl that suggested rather strongly that drug sales fund terrorist activities around the world. The ad I wish to examine is one in which items (presumably to be used ...

The Battle Of Algiers: Terrorism, Torture & Ethics - 1,512 words
The Battle of Algiers The Battle of Algiers, directed by Gillo Pontecorvo, produced in 1966 depicts the 1950s Algerian war of independence with chilling authenticity. Cast almost entirely with nonprofessional actors, and filmed in documentary neorealist style in the serpentine alleys, stairways and archways of Algierss Muslim Kasbah. Pontecorvo used newsreel film stock, telephoto close-ups, and a percussive, hard-driving musical score to create a swiftly moving political thriller (Hornaday). It is an anatomy of terror and counter terror that remains unsurpassed (Rainer). The film does not romanticize terrorists, demonize the French, or valorize violence in the name of some sort of peoples re ...
