Islamophobia is controversy term that refers to perjudice and discrimination of Islam and muslim. It become more popular after attack of 11/9. Now, i’ll tell you about 11/9 issues, which is the series of 4 suicided attack organised by Al-Qaeda on the United states in 11 of september 2001. In that morning, 19 al-qaeda’s seized four passengers jet. And the hijackers intentionally crassh the 2 plane into PWTC in city of newyork. Thus, this tragedy had killed all passengers and most of the workers in the building involved. Both of towers collapsed within 2hours. Suspicion quickly fell on the al-Qaeda’s leader which is Osama bin Laden at that time. As we know that alQaeda such a muslims organization. Based on what had happened to american in this tragedy made the outsiders phobia to Islam and think that Islam suched a terrorist religion. I can give you one opinion of a British journalis in the indipendent, Johan Harry. He argues that authentic Islamophobia exist and consist of the nation that is a uniquely evil religon, more definitly war, like a fanantical than cristianity or budism or others. For more clear, let me tell you about a hindustan movies My Name Is Khan and I’m sure some of you have heard about this movie. The story about Rizwan Khan charactered by Shah Rukh Khan which is a sindrom Asperger. He’s meet his love in america state with a widow, mandira who is have a son named Sam. When they decided to married. Name’s of Sam should be change to Sameer Khan. And the name of khan create a prejudice Islam-christian. Until sameer Khan had been killed at the middle of the field in america by his friends. This is clearly shown the feelings of scared in american until they have to killed their own friends. In 1997 the British RunnymedeTrust defined that Islamophobia is as dread and hatred of Islam and let to the fear and dislike of all muslims. Stating that it also refers to the practise of discriminating againts muslims by excluding them from economic, social,...
...Point of View:
Another main contributor to this debate, Sam Harris aired his own views on the issue. Harris chose to address Islam from a different perspective. According to his views, Harris pointed out the following:
Islam is a mother lode of bad ideas.
The problems with Islam are not just with the minority few who claim to be Jihadists, but with every Muslim for accepting the beliefs of these Fundamentalists.
That Islam tends to be harsh to the women in their society, and they have practices that tend to violate certain freedom of rights, practices that seem to be harsh on LGBT communities.
That “liberals are squeamish about criticizing Islam for stances on women and LGBT issues because people "have been sold this meme of Islamophobia, where every criticism gets confused with bigotry toward Muslims as people."
Harris' criticism of the religion unlike Maher’s was more specific on the points that he made and not so generalized. His taking on the religion is that the religion has some problematic ideas that are supported by its scriptures and that these ideas are not just open to extremists only.
A different Point of View:
This was shed by Reza Aslan, an op-ed contributor of the New York Times. Aslan categorizes the division in this debate by drawing a line between the views of both “Believers in Islam” and “Critics of Islam”. According to Aslan’s description of the Believer’s view, he states that “people of faith are far too eager to...
... Rhetorical Research Outline
A. Background on Islamophobia: Islamophobia is the fear against Muslims in the Western society. The term Islamophobia was first created in 1922 by Etienne Dinet, a French Orientalist painter who throughout his career became interested in Arabic culture and Islam. However, it escalated in 2000 due to the attacks carried out by Islamic extremists (violent Islamic activists) to the western society. The small quantities of Islamic extremists have portrayed all Muslims to be dangerous. They have ruined the reputation of Muslims and have caused many attacks on innocent Muslims. Many people in the United States now picture every single Muslim as an Islamic extremist. For the past ten years most of the population in America has become Islamophobic.
B. Role of rhetorical devices: Writers use rhetorical devices to construct sentences designed to persuade a reader towards an opinion.
C. Thesis: Throughout 2005 to 2013, nonfiction writers have used effective rhetorical devices like ethos, logos, and rhetorical questions to persuade readers that Islamophobia was created due to 9/11, the media, and Islamic extremists.
A. Discussion: The September 11 attacks were a series of four coordinated terrorist attacks launched by the Islamist terrorist group al-Qaeda upon the United States On that Tuesday morning, 19 al-Qaeda terrorists hijacked four passenger jets,...
Resistance and fear of religion has been a significant factor for the Abrahamic faiths over time. The phobia based generalisations from society against these religions has now taken a central focus on Islam and it practices. Islamophobia has seen a rapid rise in western society due considerably to response to acts of terrorism and media sensationalism resulting in the arbitrary discrimination against Muslims in general. The wide ranging impact ofIslamophobia has manifest itself as social barriers in employment, equality, societal alienation as well as hate crimes, leading to a reduced quality of life experienced by Muslims in the West, particularly in America. Islam is one of the largest religions in the world. Muslims populate almost every country in the world. Islamophobia is a major concern of Muslims in western countries. This essay will be discussing Islamophobia particularly in the case of America.
Terrorist attacks on America and its global interests in the late 20th and 21st century can be said to be the main cause of Islamophobia. Terrorist activity became a main focus of legislation in the US and its international partners as a result of increased terrorism in the Middle East and Africa. September 11 marked the single greatest attack on US homeland security when 9 individuals linked to Al-Qaeda hijacked airplanes in order to attack symbols of US military and...
...is publicized, promoted, and praised upon. As if people weren’t hateful enough as to so, the mass media plays a vitals role in the [developing] minds of Americans; most dramatically in times of war or protest. I am overwhelmed with disgust when speaking on the (for lack of a better term) ludicrous behavior associated with people considered Islamophobes. For those who do not already know, Islamophobia is prejudice against, hated towards, or irrational fear of Muslims. Terminologically, Islamophobia came about in the late 1980’s; yet this prejudice against & hatred towards [those belonging to] the Islam culture especially escalated, in America, after the September 11th, 2001 attack on the three World Trade Centers in New York City, which is believed to have been under the supervision and orders of Islamic terrorists belonging to an infamous group known as Al-Qaeda. The mass media, as always, thrives on conflict. Due to the not-so-detailed reports and the misrepresentations of the Islamic culture, the mass media has caused Islamophobia to be of epidemic status world wide.
Islamophobia demonstrates the lack of knowledge that the American people have regarding other cultures; the Islam culture in particular. Some may argue that Hinduism is the oldest form of religion; others may oppose that and consider Islam the oldest. Whatever the case may be, Islam has very deep roots and plays a vital role in history. Why...
Originally named Cordoba house, Park 51 is a project to build a Muslim cultural center and a mosque that is only two blocks away from Ground Zero. The plan has already been approved by city authorities and is backed by Mayor Bloomberg. But the project is confronted with a large protest. Some opponents are concerned that an Islamic cultural center near Ground Zero would offend the families who were affected in the 9/11 attacks. Protesters have compared Islam as extremists sympathetic to al-Qaeda. Even some Muslims are also against the project, they argued that Park 51 should be scrapped because it will just intensify anti-Muslim sentiment.
The article about Islamophobia would be a social conflict approach because there is inequality and discourages change by discriminating the Islam faith.
After 9/11 discrimination against Muslims has increased. When people think of Islam, most people would think of Osama Bin Laden as the symbol for all Muslims. They have been a target of prejudice and hate crime in the past decade as a result of stereotype that links all Muslims with Terrorism. Especially when the media only promotes radicalism on Islam like car bombings or hi jacking and the impression on Muslims is that they are all crazy. Focusing more on Islam as a religion and not the extremist is a positive way to change the situation.
It was cultural intolerance not the Islam faith the reason why 9/11 happened. I just believe...
...Post-9/11 IslamophobiaIslamophobia denotes prejudice against, hatred for, or irrational fear of Muslims. Such fear and hostility leads to discriminations against Muslims, exclusion of Muslims from mainstream political or social process, stereotyping, the presumption of guilt by association, and most frequently, hate crimes. In post 9/11 America, Islamophobia has resulted in the general and unquestioned acceptance that Islam does not share common values with other major faiths, that Islam is a religion of violence and supports terrorism, and even that Islam has a violent political ideology. According to a study done in July of 2002 by the Arab American Institute Foundation on profiling, “[n]early one in three Arab Americans say they have personally experienced discrimination in the past because of their ethnicity.” A poll done more recently in 2011 suggests that only “[t]hree-in-ten Americans say they interact daily (6 percent) or occasionally (24 percent) with a Muslim. More than two-thirds (68 percent) report that they seldom or never interact with a Muslim.” This paper will discuss that in accordance with Muqtedar Khan’s article “American Exceptionalism and American Muslims,” that while the “United States has become a place where Islam thrives in all its diversified glory,”3 statistics show that Muslim’s are discriminated against.
In 2011, The Washington Post conducted a survey and found that “Muslims felt that the...

Title of your Research
This proposed study will seek to answer this central research question:
Can the western media be held responsible for propagating islamophobia.
In recent years, a specific phobia has gripped England and the west.
In western society, Muslim women issues are a spectacle in Western media, viewed as being victims of male brutality, oppressed and suffering. The result is often negative stereotypes of Muslim men, stereotypes reinforced by the post-9/11 climate in which he is typically seen as a potential terrorist, have become so prominent that they influence and shape public policy (Ewing K. 2008). An exaggerated fear, hatred, and hostility toward Islam and Muslims that is perpetuated by negative stereotypes resulting in bias, discrimination, and the marginalization and exclusion of Muslims from social, political, and civic life.
Islamophobia existed in premise before the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, but it increased in frequency and notoriety during the past decade. The Runnymede Trust in the U.K., for example, identified eight components of Islamophobia in a 1997 report, and then produced a follow-up report in 2004 after 9/11 and the initial years of the Afghanistan and Iraq wars. The second report found the aftermath of the terrorist attacks had made life more difficult for British Muslims. In the UK context the media‘s...
