We witness many different types of injustices everyday in our society. As we
walk around the park or go to the store, people will start to judge us, discriminate against us because of the religion we follow or what race we are. The most common types of injustice are, for example, discrimination and anything that falls under that category. There is one injustice that people know about but might not actually think of it as an injustice People have their own ways of defining the word injustice. In the dictionary it is defined as a lack of fairness or justice. There are many types of injustices our society has to face but one that affects us as a whole is terrorism.
Countries and Civilians have witnessed terrorism throughout their lifetime.
Terrorism is the use of violent acts to frighten people in an area as a way of trying to achieve a social or political goal. Terrorism affects everyone. It makes us feel unsafe and doubt the protection from the national security, which is supposed to keep us safe and secured. Terrorism even affects young children and those who witness or are exposed are at risk from experiencing mental health difficulties. Unfortunately, Terrorism is an injustice that is witnessed around the world and affects the people.
Terrorism is witnessed and experienced in our lives and around the world and it is
clearly shown in the novel, The Book Thief. The novel is set before, during and after World War ll. It focuses around the life of Liesel, a young German girl who is taken away from her mother,
who is a communist, and sent to live with a German couple in Molching, Germany. An obvious example of terrorism that occurs in the novel is the “Night of broken glass” also known as Kristallnacht. On the night of November 9, 1939, nazi soldiers rushed through the streets of Germany and break any windows they can find and plundered jewish businesses. Terrorism is also clearly evident in the memoir Night. The story is about a teenager of the name Elie Wiesel who lived in the town of Sighet, Transylvania. In 1944, Eliezer and his family were taken from their home and transferred to the auschwitz concentration camp, and then to Buchenwald. The memoir takes place during the entire period of the holocaust and shows to us what he and his father had to go through during the concentration camps. A major example of terrorism occurs when Eliezer and his family are transferred from the ghettos to concentration camps. When Eliezer arrives at Birkenau and is separated from his family. While they were being chosen to either go left or right, Eliezer notice a ditch with huge flames rising up from it. He saw a truck coming close to it and unloaded a pile of babies. Eliezer can not believe his eyes. He did not want to believe this and thought that it was all a nightmare and that he would soon wake up from it. It is horrifying that people like the Nazis would do this to jewish people just to let everybody know that the Germans are superior.
Other than examples in the novels The Book Thief and Night, there's a clear connection with Terrorism in the movies Batman Begins and The Dark Night. The movies are about a man named Bruce Wayne who is later known as Batman. He fights criminals like The Joker and Ra’s al Ghul. A major example of terrorism is the beliefs of an organization called the League of Shadows. The League of Shadows is an organization that works to manipulate history and correct civilizations and facilitate their destruction. The view of this league has much in
common with the Islamic terrorists who hate western culture and hope to overturn western ...
Jihad is a term that the West has come to know and fear. The Arabic word, Jihad, means struggling or striving and applies to any effort exerted by anyone. Jihad is really a struggle in life. Extremists misinterpret the religion into believing the religion implies that they should fight with anyone that is against Islam. Extremists use their religion as a scapegoat. Those who are involved with Jihad are a very small percentage of Muslims who are from the extreme, radical, and violent wing of Islamic Fundamentalism.
They are very passionate, religious, and anti Western. They tend to interpret Jihad in terms of personal struggle towards purity. What many people don’t know is that Jihad is not a declaration of war against other religions. The Quran specifically refers to Jews and Christians as "people of the book" who should be protected and respected. All three faiths worship
the same God. Allah is just the Arabic word for God, and is used by Christian Arabs as well as Muslims.
Jihad means struggle and that means any struggle, personal struggles, spiritual struggle, or more popular term for these days a political struggle. In Islam we have no right to fight anyone for any reason except for self-defense. The media plays a large role in the Middle East. It portrays hate back and forth by religious leaders who call death to Americans. Not only is the insidious nature of...

...In the past years, terrorism has increased quite gradually, in both attacks and fatalities. Source 2 shows a graph comparing the number of Jihadist attacks Pre British and American invasion to post invasion stats. The pre invasion statistics shows that there were just 25 worldwide whereas post invasion there was a drastic increase in attacks to 200 per year. Source 20 shows the number of terrorist attack incidents and fatalities from the 1st of October 1998 through to the 8th of November 2006. From 1/1/98-9/11/2001 the number of fatalities per month were 176 however there was a great different between 9/12/2001-8/11/2006 as the number rose to 444. The source came from the National Memorial Institute for the prevention of terrorism in 2006, this shows me that it is a reliable source but it only gives stats for America and no other, therefore it would not prove whether or not terrorism has increased globally.

Yet it is high debated of which cause is the main cause.

TOPIC: TERRORISM: IS TERRORRISM THE BEST APPROACH TO SOLVING PROBLEMS; A CASE STUDY OF NIGERIA.
Terrorism is perhaps one of the most exigent problems that Nigeria is facing today. Judging from killings here and there, bombings all over the place, it is becoming progressively more difficult to differentiate between tribal, political and religious altercations. Unfortunately terrorism has gone global and everyone is equally affected either as suspects or vulnerable. There is nowhere to hide. Every time you take a plane or a bus, or a train, you can't help wondering in the back of your mind, whether this could possibly be your last journey. The world has lost its transparency, not that there was much virtue before, but whatever there was, none exists now. It’s been exposed and you have the specter of terrorism staring you in the face, challenging you and your way of life. The question to ask some people is what really is terrorism? Everyone has a totally different definition for terrorism because people have alternate views and opinions about the subject. For the purpose of this paper, however, I have chosen the definition used by the Journal of Sustainable Development in Africa which states that “Terrorism is a socio-political disorder that has grown to the detriment of the international security system and...

Terrorism in Today's World
There are a few different definitions of terrorism in society. One interpretation is the “use of violence and threats to intimidate or coerce, especially for political purposes.” (Dictionary.com, LLC)
The cultural definition given by the same source is quite long, but very worthy of a quote. It states that terrorism is best defined culturally as:
“Acts of violence committed by groups that view themselves as victimized by some notable historical wrong. Although these groups have no formal connection with governments, they usually have the financial and moral backing of sympathetic governments. Typically, they stage unexpected attacks on civilian targets, including embassies and airliners, with the aim of sowing fear and confusion” (Dictionary.com, LCC).
Many define September 11th, 2001 as one of the most destructive acts ever taken upon the United States of America. A group of Islamic terrorists, questioned to be a part of the Al Qaeda group, took control over three of America's commercial airliners. The terrorists hijacked the airliners while the planes were in mid-air, took over the...
TerrorismTerrorism has been said to be difficult to define, however, according to James and Brenda Lutz, it consist of six parts: (1) terrorism has a political objective, (2) it relies on violence or the threat of it, (3) it has a target audience beyond the immediate victims, (4) it involves an organization and is not the actions of isolated individuals, (5) it involves a non-state actor as the perpetrator or the target or both, (6) and it is a weapon of weakness of the weak designed to change the distribution of power. The targeted audience is vital: they are the ones that should be stricken with fear. Terrorism is ultimately a form of psychological warfare that is directed against this target audience (Lutz). The “terrorists” often times see themselves as soldiers or freedom-fighter. They do not believe that their actions are wrong as long as they ultimately achieve their means. In order to understand terrorism and the problems that follow it, one must first understand the history and the terrorist and why terrorism seems to prevail.
The history of terrorism can be dated back to at least 1500 years (66-72 A.D), according to the Delaware Criminal Justice Council Terrorism Research Page. 1500 years ago, Jewish resistance groups, Zealots, killed Roman soldiers and Roman property. Terrorism has evolved a lot since then, yet it continues to be...
