How the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, on United States, changes the American view of Muslims? Some Muslims are being discriminated, some Americans feel uncomfortable around Muslims after 9/11 attacks and think that all Muslims are terrorists. Besides this, Americans believe that it is harder to be a Muslim in the U.S after 9/11 events. Background of Event:
The September 11, 2001 attacks were the most deadly international terrorist attack in history and the largest attack on United States territory since the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. 9/11 attacks was about series of airline hijacking and suicide attacks committed by 19 militants associated with the Islamic extremist group al-Qaeda who had targeted some territories in the United States of America. First effect
Discrimination of some Muslim people in USA
Specific research support: (Quote from the article) Since Muslim Americans are part of American society, negative attitudes and discrimination would have detrimental effects not only on the recipients of the negative expression (Abu-Ras & Suarez, 2009: Rippy & Newman, 2006; Kira et al., 2010), but also on society at large.
According to me 9/11 attacks really had a bad impact on Muslim people in the USA as well as all over the world. Muslim people experienced a lot of discrimination 9/11 and still experiencing it.
Most of the Americans started thinking that all Muslims are terrorists and American Muslims had to face a bad time. They had to prove that they were not terrorists but wise citizens of the United States. Specific research support: (Quote from article)
Analysts note that many Muslims have made efforts to prove their loyalty to the United States. ADDITIONAL SUPPORT: Some Sikhs who wore Turban were also mistreated because they resembleed like Muslims.

Muslim American after 9/11
There are 5 to 8 million Muslims living in USA according to the US census 2010. They all have normal and happy life. They are living in peaceful and friendly environment. But no one had expected to live that kind of luxurious life back then. It was the event of September 11, 2001, which changed their way of life drastically. On the day of September11, 2001 two airplanes crashed in the heart of New York, the twin towers. It was a surprise attack by the terrorist group called Al Qaida. Al Qaida was the extremist form of Muslim. Since they were Muslim many Muslim American were about to face the difficulties that they haven’t even dreamed off. After 9/11, Muslim Americans went through a lot of struggle, including profiling and religious stereotyping, which reveals that the violation and chaos of that time was widespread.
There was a drastic change on how people viewed and treated Muslim American after 9/11. According to Khan Mussarat, the author of “Attitudes towards Muslim Americans”, people stopped going near Muslim American and stopped talking with them because they were scared of them. This meant that Muslim Americans were physically and mentally isolated...
...After a horrible terroristic attack that shocked the whole world on September 11th in the center of New York City, Muslims in the Western world have been constantly fighting against prejudice. After September 11, media interest in Islam increased, where Islam was usually portrayed in a negative way. Before 9/11, many Muslims lived the normal, everyday life. However, the attack has changed lives of many people that belonged to the Muslim community, where they were the victims of guilt. Unfortunately, many Americans were introduced to Islam, after the 9/11 attack, thus even till today, Islam is associated with terrorism. For the past ten years, Muslims felt excluded from the American society by being rifled, attacked, discriminated, checked by FBI and controlled at the airports. At first, it might have seemed that with time the Western world will heal from the scratches, however, the scratches of 9/11 turned out to be the scars. Even now, Muslims and their religion are insulted through the nasty gazes and comments, threat of burning of the Quran, and publication of Muhammad cartoons, as well as the anti-Islamic movie. Though Muslims were isolated from the world stage before 9/11, they have, since then, been vilified through the influence of the mass media.
The Impact of 9-11
On September 11, 2001 America woke up expecting a normal day. What America did not expect was that this day was going to change history forever. On that day Islamic extremist high-jacked four U.S. airplanes with the intent of crashing them into the twin towers, the Pentagon and the White House. Two of the planes did indeed crash into the twin towers in New York City and another was used to hit the pentagon. The passengers on the last plane however, fought back, and it was landed before it could be used to hit the white house. “A decade later, what happened on Sept. 11 still resonates for much of the country. Even more Americans now say the horror of that day changed their lives.”1 These were the first attacks ever directed toward U.S. civilian population. These organized attacks lead to the need for an immediate change in the way the United States approached defending itself.
One of the major changes that were caused by the attack of 9/11 was the introduction to the Patriot Act. “The USA PATRIOT Act is an Act of Congress that was signed into law by President George W. Bush on October 26, 2001. The title of the act is a ten-letter acronym (USA PATRIOT) that stands for Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism Act of 2001The Patriot Act gives the U.S. power to deter and punish terrorist acts...
...United We Stand
Although people say, “every picture tells a story,” a picture cannot exemplify every detail about the event involved in that event. The attack on September, 11 2001 was a turning point in American history. There are many visual representations and written testimonies that lead us to have different feelings about the attack on September 11, 2001; more specifically, the reason behind these different emotions is because there is a vast difference in a testimony of the event, and simply a photo of the attack. It does not matter whether you were involved in the terrifying act or if you simply heard about it on the television; this attack changed everyone’s life. “It affected us, it affects all of us, even if you don’t realize it. I just want everyone to remember that although it’s been 10 years, we still remember it like it was yesterday, and we shouldn’t forget.” (2011)
One of the most famous pictures (2001) from 9/11, photo of three firemen raising the American flag at the site of the World Trade Center attacks. After seeing the image of three firefighters hanging the American flag only eight hours after the tragic attack we were able to see the true patriotism of our country. Many people may have believed that this was a representation that the tragedy was over, but it was only just beginning. This flag was raised to give citizens proof that through all that was going to come; our flag would still...
...THE MUSLIM WORLD AFTER 9/11:
Many Muslims throughout the world were affected by the attack against the World Trade Center in New York City on September 11th, 2001. Although the United States and other countries of the West were obviously affected nationally, how did these 9/11 attacks affect Muslims individually, especially those living in the United States and other countries in the West?
The United States has been called many things, such as the "Melting Pot", the "Land of Opportunity", and the "Golden Mountain". (Many Orientals call it the "Golden Mountain", because of the belief by some that those who have the opportunity to go to America can quickly earn "mountains of gold".) Nevertheless, too many Muslims internationally, the United States could also be called by some rather "choice" names of a negative nature.
Nevertheless, not all Muslims have had angry words or even angry hearts against the United States or against the West in general. Many Muslims living in the United States and other western countries endured personal insults and taunts during the many years since those 9/11 attacks. Many Muslims have had their personal freedoms compromised, have been "shown the door" (deported), or else have decided to leave voluntarily rather than endure such emotional "abuse".
...9-119-11 is a day that we will never forget. On that day the twin towers got bomb barded into by two planes. They came crashing down and killing over 2,000 people that were working or anywhere near the twin towers at the time of impact.
The culture of Al Qaeda: Al Qaeda has a very unique culture because they are very strict in their society also their qualities of living are very low. Men are valued a lot more than women are valued, it is a men dominated culture.
The culture of US: In the US we have much more freedom and women have equal rights as men. We have the opportunity to do whatever we like to do with our lives. In our culture we can choose the religion that we would like to worship.
The attacks on 9-11 were clearly not an accident. The people responsible for the attack were Islamic terrorist who worked for Al-Qaeda. Osama bin Laden was the head founder of the international alliance of terrorist. Al-Qaeda attacked many other countries but the attack on September 11, 2001 was the most horrendous attack on American grounds by far.
One of the reasons Al-Qaeda set their sights on the US was because of the U.S foreign policy in the Middle East. The Arabic countries did not like that the U.S supported Israel and did not like the U.S foreign policies because they did not think that it was equal. A second reason that I came to conclude was that...
9-11 Research Paper
By: William Culverwell
Teacher: Ms. McHenry
On Tuesday, September 11, 2001, the biggest terror attack in the history of the United States of America took place. The attacks killed almost 3,000 people and caused at least $10 billion worth of damage to the property and buildings! It was completely unexpected and was a devastating incident to the United States as a nation. It destroyed the twin towers, as well as damaging the pentagon, and a failed attack against the white house. The attack was caused by nineteen hijackers, on four different planes, three of which hit their targets. It was a tragic day in American history.
The attack was planned and carried out by the Al-Qaeda terror group. Initially the group denied involvement, but then as time went on they admitted to having been behind the attacks. Some of the reasons the listed for the attacks were: Us support of Israel, because of attacks against Muslims in Russia, Somalia, and the Middle East, and against the US troops in Saudi Arabia, and the US sanctions against Iraq. This led to one of the largest manhunts in the world, for Al-Qaeda’s leader, Osama Bin Laden. The manhunt lasted for ten years before he was caught and killed.
This was an attack that would change the United States forever. It created a reason for the security and anti-terror measures that we have today. It is the reason why planes are so...
...people were going to have to deal with for a while. "It's not easy being a survivor," said one of the firefighters apart of 9/11. They did not understand why they were still alive and so many of their felloe firefighters and other who were dieing around them. They were seen as heroes to the world, but to themselves they did not feel like one, knowing how many people were suffering and dieing. NO one should have had to see or gone through what so many people did on that very day.
"Ground Zero," as some would call it, where thousands and thousands of lives were lost, with should go without saying, putting a huge hole in the population. As people were trying to save lives, it became extremely difficult because all the debris was flying in the air and was destroying things by the second. Buildings collapsing all around you made you feel there were nothing you could do but save yourself. Fire trucks, ambulances, cars, anything that you could imagine were crushed into almost nothing. Aids were becoming in high demand considering the amounts of people injured who needed to be cared for immediately. Manhattan was a mess, firefighters putting in 24-hour shifts to try and get things cleaned up, but it felt like it was never end. This defiantly put a big dent in New York's economy causing the average taxpayer to cough up more cast to help the aid and after affects of 9/11. More money was needed to restructure and re-build...
