Islam and Terrorism

April 2016

Terrorism has become one of the outstanding features that marked the twenty-first century, as its acts and threats have been in existence for millennia, and because it acts as a real danger facing the human existence. Terrorists have widened their activities and increased their practices in many regions of the world in recent times, such as Turkey, France and Belgium. Terrorist groups have used violence as a mean to achieve their goals and they did not adhere to any religious principles or moral, and they have showed us how they have used advanced weapons and equipment’s in their attacks. The core principle of terrorists is that the aims justify the means, which carries with it the destruction of human civilizations.
Muslims are being exposed by campaigns of slander and distortion, waged by western countries, politicians and media, and these campaigns have seen an increase of ferocity after the emergence of the (ISIS) terrorist group in the Arab countries, and specially after the terrorist attacks on some Western countries. Some Arab and Islamic countries participated in awareness campaigns about the thought of the new emerged terrorist group (ISIS) extremist on the Islamic religion, but violence and extremism is no longer mentioned in Western countries, but they became attributed to Muslims, Arabs. Extremism and terrorism has become Islamist, and all this is linked to Islamist groups.
I have selected the topic of terrorism and Muslims because of what happened to the Islamic religion is the strongest campaigns ferocity and mentioning of the word terrorism or extremism in the world has portrayed to an Islamic origin, and that the phenomenon of Islamic phobia needed to cope with sincere work and effective dialogue, as it can not be put Islamic religion which calls for human rights, peace, and tolerance in the position of the accused exploited by some groups as a tool to kill innocents and civilians. The larger argument of this research is therefore, studying the phenomenon of terrorism in the world and highlighting the position of religions from terrorism.
Terrorism has been a distinctive manifestation of political violence in previous centuries, and none of the previous nations get devoid from terrorism. Terrorists always call for the achievement of liberation, while they in fact uses terrorism to achieve their goal, which is the authority. The world will never forget extremism and terrorism operations in some Christian denominations in the United States, and the Catholic terrorism in Northern Ireland and in Croatia, and what was carried out by those sectarian campaigns of murder and destruction, either what is always mentioned that Islamic extremism and Islamic terrorism, as its the heart of Islam, and this character become a listed Islamic character to curse Islam itself.
History of terrorism across the centuries:
Extending the roots of terrorism from prehistory to the present day, the phenomenon of terrorism wasn’t limited to a nation or a people, as it included the entire world and throughout the ages, and was not associated with a religion. But over the centuries it has been exploited with religions as a cover for terrorist practices, a religion itself wasn’t one of the motives or causes of terrorism, but the people of religions were victims of terrorism. Terrorists, whether they were from antiquity or modern ages, they try to describe the killings and criminal acts as a heroic acts intended to rid the people from the clutches of injustice and oppression, but the truth is that terrorists want power for themselves.
The misuse of the freedom and the restrict of people lives with artificial restrictions unjust and unfair, pushes the oppressed and the oppressor from the people to the destruction, sabotage and murder to prove his existence. The instinct of power and control must be bounded by limits, otherwise, the lack of control on power will result to the occurrence of injustice and tyranny and to the prevalence of an atmosphere of panic and fear among the people and therefore resort to acts of terrorism, and the Arabs has practiced violence and terrorism since the dawn of Islam against each other and such practices has resulted in killing of hundreds of Companions of the messenger of Allah and kill tens of thousands of Arab Muslims soldiers who had first brought to carry the banner of Islam and defend it. In modern times we note that terrorist practices in some Arab countries are doing all of the ruling power to get rid of its enemies, opponents and organizations in order to maintain monopoly power and achieve their demands, making this conflict thus lead to heavy losses of life and property, the international extremism and regional policy and internal conditions for the Arab countries helped those terrorist organizations to expand and organize the development of terrorism in the Arab country and the world alike, in the framework of the internal conviction on the one hand and support the forces of external and internal groups on the other hand.

Terrorism as a global threat
Terrorism is a global phenomenon that is hard to be explained as some people defined terrorism actions that they are freedom fighters and others say that those terrorism actions are only to gain power and authority. For example the Palestinian who fights against Israel are freedom fighters in the Palestinian circle but from the frame of Israel they are terrorists and the actions of killing civilians are terrorist actions. In the global scene, terrorism has posed some challenges including: corruption, incompetence, insurgency, death and destruction.
International terrorism has become imperative in the present time, and there is a very high cost for combating international terrorism. After the attack of 9\11, the world has seen the American movement regarding the occupation of Afghanistan. For decades of rebellion has brought more death and destruction. The rebellion today is in its strongest position that shows us the black picture about future prospects.
The Syrian situation shows us that proper checks are a must to shape a vision that leads to corruption because the development and construction could not be pursued the way it was envisioned and the authorities couldn’t get rid of the terrorism groups all over the country. Syria has grossly suffered because of terrorism and the situation hasn’t improved much for more than four years now. What cannot be done in over a span of four years is a very hard task to be achieved in a little time or even in a year.
Democracy in the Arab world has suffered a lot because of the challenges that are posed by terrorism. Terrorists have a mission, which is establishing an Islamic caliphate in letter and spirit using vicious and barbaric acts to force governments to cede to their demands. The world today is indeed at crossroads that needs the effort by all world countries to dismantle and defeat those terrorists groups from the occupied lands.
The Islamic and the west countries have a very bad relations between each other because of the attacks of terrorists groups, and those relations needs to be solved before it gets out of control, and the only option has left is creating dialogue.
International terrorism always depends on drug trafficking for funding, as it’s the situation now in Syria. Corruption is a menace that needs to be solved and it’s the main danger character of democracy. The situation today demands a big role by the present generation to encourage all peacemakers to make this world a safer place for the upcoming generations.

The position of Islam on terrorism
Unfortunately, Islam has been associated with terrorism actions of some extreme individuals who have taken it upon themselves to do the most outrageous action in the name of Islam.
The last sorrowful attacks on France and Belgium are assumed to be justified by Muslims and Islamist groups. The idea of terrorist Muslim has been waged by politicians and many media channels which defame Islam religion by describing those bombing attacks as Islamist as their though is accepted by Islam. The attacks of those groups who happen to have Muslim name or they describe themselves to Islam religion should not be measured by which Islam is judged.
To understand where Islam stands on terrorism, we must refer to the original source of Islam, which are the Quran and the teachings of prophet Muhammad. Those sources are explicit in their prohibition of any form of injustice actions including that oppressive violence that seeks to get the power and authority by installing fear, injury and death to civilians.
The Quran shows us the high value of human life, whether it’s Muslim or Non-Muslim and makes it forbidden to kill or to take an innocent life unjustly. The seriousness of this crime is equal with the killing of all humanity in the Quran.
“On that account: we ordained for the children of Israel that if anyone slew a person unless it be for a murder or for spreading mischief in the land – it would be as if he slew the whole people: and if any one saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of the whole people. Then although there came to them our apostles with signs, yet, even after that many of them continued to commit excesses in the land.”
The human life is not the only sacred in Islam, but also the property, wealth, family and dignity of all peoples are to be protected and respected. Those who override the rights and spreads corruption will incur the wrath of Allah.
“The blame is only against those who oppress men and wrong doing and insolently transgress beyond bounds through the land, defying right and justice for such there will be penalty grievous.”7
Centuries before Geneva Convention was composed, Muslims were obligated by a code of conduct, which that prophet Muhammad set. He forbade his soldiers from killing women and children and he advised them by (… do not betray, do not excessive, do not kill a newborn child). And he also warned his soldiers (who ever has killed a person having a treaty with the Muslims shall not smell the fragrance of paradise).
The message of the Quran is clear, that human life should be respected and protected and any violation in that regard is connected to the worst crime of Islam, mercy has been set as the heart of Islam ((Muhammad), We have sent you for no other reason but to be a mercy for mankind.) Which is totally different message to what terrorists are imparting to humanity.
By searching for the roots of terrorism It was found that it stretched from prehistory to the present day, and the phenomenon of terrorism is not limited to a nation or a people, as it included the entire world and throughout the ages, and it wasn’t associated with a religion, but religion and over Ages has been exploited as a cover for terrorist practices. Religion itself wasn’t as a motive of terrorism or a causes, but it was the people of religions are victims of terrorism, and the terrorists, whether they were from antiquity or modern times, they all tries to describe the killings and their criminal acts as they are doing heroic work on it aims to rid the people from the clutches of injustice and oppression, and the truth is that terrorists always wanted power for themselves.
Islam is the religion of peace, equality and justice, and it fights all forms of terrorism whatever its causes and motives. The generosity of God has been down on the Muslim Arab Nations, which saved it from misguidance to guidance and from the conflict and hatred to love, and Made constitution of Virtue and Prevention evil, without harshness or coercion. Islam has forbidden all what is related to terrorism onion, and makes assaulting on innocent lives a crime that involved in God.
Confronting terrorism requires the development of plans that call for the awareness of citizens of the dangers and problems of terrorism which aims to isolate the Arab societies of the world, as well as enlighten the Arab public opinion by an audible and legible and visible by media materials, and its responsibility to protect the young generations from falling into the clutches of terrorism, and the need for religious outreach plan to provide debt in the correct image of the tolerant away from the spirit of intolerance, and the intensification of media programs that highlight the seriousness of terror against the State. Even the fight against terrorism will be more meaningful if this fight have been led by all international levels and through cooperation of Arab and wests, and the distinction must be made between terrorism and the legitimate struggle of peoples for self-determination and national liberation from all forms of occupation and colonialism and racial discrimination.

Right to Work

...Right to work (RTW) is one of the controversial topics in the history of American labour legislation, which was commenced by the Taft-Hartley act of 1947. Supporters of RTW laws believe worker's freedom is ensured through this legislation, on the other hand opponents of this law believe they are fighting for the lifeblood movement of labour union (Kovach, 1977). Till to date, 23 states of U.S. have adopted RTW laws, whereas other state's legislature (i.e Ohio, Michugan and New Hampshire) debate on this law (Collins, 2012). Since RTW has created different opinion among different people, researches have been conducted widely to find out differences from numerous perspectives (ie. social, economic, employment etc.) among RTW states and union security states. However, research result is inconclusive, since one can gain limited knowledge on the probable insights that a RTW and non-RTW state may provide(Collins, 2012). For a long period of time, anti-union members are applauding RTW laws by claiming this law is providing freedom of choice to the workers, whether they want to join a union voluntarily. In contrast, I find a hidden motive behind this legislation; that is- employers gain the most from RTW laws. Therefore, in this report focus will be given to analyze how employers are gaining the most from this law by depriving the workers. First of all, in a RTW state employers get advantage in getting works done at owner's terms, since workers cannot raise their voice to oppose those...

Right to Work Laws

...HR 360 Research Paper – Right to Work April 18, 2015 RIGHT TO WORK Introduction When the labor union movement began in the early twentieth century, the goal was to safeguard the rights of labor and putting an end to management’s almost cruel and unrestricted power. Prior to the 1930s and 40s, when most of the pro-labor legislation was passed, management was free to treat workers as it saw fit, abusing the labor with only the economic bottom line in mind. Unions became a powerful and necessary weapon for labor in the battle for rights within the workplace. Over time, federal protection for union organizing and collective bargaining allowed unions to be more powerful and politically unfair. The rights of individuals seemed to be in jeopardy, as the collective fate of the union began to take on greater importance than those of the individual workers. Because of this, many states have established right-to-work laws, which make it illegal for unions and employers to only hire union members. These laws tend to be argued, the unions believe that they weaken labor’s power, while supporters of these laws believe that they safeguard the rights of individual workers. History The unions’ power began to set in the 1930s and 40s, with the passage of the National Labor Relations Act of 1935 (NLRA), which “provided employees the right to bargain collectively for wages, benefits and better working conditions” (Henderson, 2006), for the first time in U.S. history. There have...

Right to Work Philosophy

...Introduction Right-to-Work Laws first appeared in a significant number of states after Congress enacted the 1935 National Labor Relations Act, also known as the Wagner Act, and they remain on the books in roughly twenty two states today. The right these laws enshrine is the nineteenth-century liberal individualist conception of freedom of contract between employer and employee. They protect the individual worker's freedom to refuse to join or to help support a union, including one chosen by fellow employees as their bargaining representative. Thus, from the perspective animating the Wagner Act, they aim to undercut collective labor agreements. More specifically, right-to-work laws are aimed against union security provisions in collective labor contracts. Such provisions may require that the employer hire only union members, ensuring a so-called "closed shop," or they may require that newly hired workers join the union within a certain period. Or union security provisions may not require union membership: they may only demand that employees contribute their share to the union's costs of bargaining on workers' behalf. Also, they may provide that the employer shall deduct union dues or fees from workers' pay checks. State right-to-work laws typically outlaw all such arrangements. Most of the 22 states that have Right to Work laws adopted them in the 1940’s and 1950’s after the passage of the Taft-Hartley Act of 1947.

Right to Work in Michigan

...Right to Work in Michigan In general, The Right to work policy was put into action to prevent labor unions from establishing a requirement of employees’ memberships including union dues, or fees constricted with employment. The Right to Work law regulates the agreements that are between employee and their employers. Right to work currently exists in 24 U.S states. Recently, in 2012, Michigan and Indiana have adopted the policy. The Opponents of the Right to Work are concerned that the average wage in RTW states are lower than the average wage in a non-RTW state. Bureau of Labor Statistics, 2001, state the average worker in a RTW state would earn on average $5,000 less per year than those in other states. They do not state the cost of the wages that go to pay for the union you’re apart of in that state. According to economist Gordon Lafer, RTW laws do not boost the job growth in the states that adopt the laws, they also lower the wages and reduce benefits for union workers and non-union workers. By reducing employees’ income, a Right-to-Work law could have a significant negative effect on Michigan’s economy. Before Michigan adopted the Right to Work policy in 2012, Michigan’s cities were in an economic downward spiral. The Mackinac Center for Public Policy shows how Michigan before the RTW policy came into effect there were poorer performance in nearly every economic measure when compared to the standard RTW state. This includes poverty, unemployment, and income...

Social Work and Human Rights

...Social Work and Human Rights Essay Introduction The recent news of the two aboriginal teenagers with their contrasting stories caught my attention. One was of a 17 year old, Ms. Victoria Lansen, an aboriginal single mom, who after facing much struggle, completed her Year 12 graduation from Gunbalanya School in West Arnhem Land on January 21,2016. The second was of another aboriginal teenager from Goldfields-Esperance region, Western Australia, who took his own life just two days after, becoming one of the at least five people in the Goldfields-Esperance region who have committed suicide in the past two months leading up to Christmas. The journey of the 17 year old Ms. Lansen, who comes from a remote Aboriginal town, has not been easy but in the interview to (1) ABC News she stated that she could cope owing to the support from family, friends and range of core local services. Her environment was in contrast to that of the troubled youth whose death highlights the sense of hopelessness, radicalized and economic inequality. The deceased youth’s uncle, Trevor Donaldson, is demanding a safe house set up for troubled aboriginal youth in Goldfields, Western Australia. The human rights issue which can be seen in the light of just these two unbiased media reports is how presence or absence of some core local services can change the direction in which the life takes the Aboriginals in this case. (2) Western Australia leads the Aboriginal suicide rates, with 35.8 per 100,000 Aboriginal...

Analysis of Right to Work Laws

...was economic strategy (and this country’s outright economic dominance) that led to the fall of Communism and the end of the Cold War. (Garrity, 2002). Individual prosperity is a fundamental principle of our economic system, and is as important as collective wealth. One need not belong to an elite class or family (although it does help if you are related to millionaires), nor does one have to obtain special permission from the government. Another element of the economic system is the way it rewards success. If you seek it, you can find it; all you need is to find a way to build a better widget, or a better way to build what everyone else has been making. At least in theory, the system is designed in such a way as to reward ingenuity, work ethic, and perseverance. Unfortunately, not everything about this capitalist system is as simple as everyone earning money. Indeed, a study of capitalism merely provides a way of explaining how money moves from consumers to producers. Further study of economics, financial management, and other money-related topics implies cooperation among those within the system. For example, just because Robert has something John wants does not...

What Is Right to Work Law

...What is a Right to Work law? A Right to Work law guarantees that no person can be compelled, as a condition of employment, to join or not to join, nor to pay dues to a labor union. Unfortunately, politicians in some states have made special mission to fight back against unions and have taken a stance to enforce the freedom of choice. These politicians like other right-to-work advocates, base their arguments on claims that this law will strengthen the state's economy and raise its standard of living. In the state of Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner wants cities and villages to join his fight against organized labor. The Chicago Tribune posted (Trib) that “In an email to mayors across the state, the head of the lobbying organization for municipalities said Rauner has asked for city councils to consider a resolution asking the state to allow local right to work zones, as well as changes to prevailing wage laws and worker compensation laws.” Rauner has made it his number one goal to destroy the union structure as it is today. Similar to Wisconsin’s Gov. Walker whom achieved his goal finally on March 9, 2015 where even President Obama quoted saying “the new law is part of "a sustained, coordinated assault on unions, led by powerful interests and their allies in government."

The Rights and Ethics of Employees with Respect to Privacy at Work

...Dania Afif El-Achmar The Rights and Ethics of Employees with Respect to Privacy at Work Widespread use of electronic communications media such as e-mail and information resources such as the Internet has prompted many employers to engage in electronic surveillance of their employees. Employers are monitoring—and even recording—employees’ personal phone calls, e-mails, and workplace conversations. Video cameras are trained on employee parking lots, break areas, and other parts of the workplace. Today’s employers have the legal right to conduct search and seizure of employees’ personal property; monitor the employee’s telephone calls, workplace computer, Internet, fax use, and e-mail; perform employee drug testing; and conduct investigation and surveillance of employees. Electronic Surveillance The ethics of employee surveillance are problematic, because both the company and the employee have rights, and these rights can conflict. The employee owes the company a solid day’s work and protection of proprietary property and knowledge, but the employee can claim rights such as privacy, compensation for injury, freedom from harassment, and a living wage. Employees are often not aware of the fact that their e-mails are being read by their employers. Moreover, most employees are unaware of the extent to which their employers can and actually do monitor what they do. Studies indicated that worldwide, approximately 27 million employees workforce, are under continuous Internet or e-mail use...

Employers and Employee Rights on Drug Testing in the Work Place

...EMPLOYERS AND EMPLOYEE RIGHTS ON DRUG TESTING IN THE WORK PLACE: Employer and employee have different rights and responsibilities in the organization. The right are provided for the productivity of the organization. Drug and Alcohol Testing: The use of drugs such as cocaine and alcohol has received widespread attention in recent years and many private employers now routinely test for drugs and alcohol use. However, the laws regulating drug testing are relatively new. The courts are still shaping them. At present, the Americans with Disabilities Act, some state laws, and court decisions affect an employer’s ability to use drug testing during the pre-employment period. Generally, the law allows employers to require prospective employees to take drug tests if * The candidate knows that such testing is part of the screening process for prospective employees, * The employer has already offered the candidate the job, * All applicants for the same or similar positions are tested similarly, and * A state-certified laboratory administers the test. Employers can avoid some potential problems by including an agreement to submit to such tests on their application form. Several federal laws and regulations require certain employers to conduct pre-employment drug and alcohol tests. Other issues that employers should consider when deciding whether to use drug and alcohol tests as screening devices are: The duty to provide a safe workplace: State...

...Right- to- Work When it comes to unionization in the workplace there are many policies in position to protect the worker, not only from the employer but from the union itself. One of these laws is called the right- to- work law which was brought on by the signing of the Taft- Hartley Act of 1947. There are 22 states in the U.S. that have right- to- work laws and in this paper I will be discussing what this means and whether or not it is a desirable public policy. I will also cover what it means to the employee, employer and the union. I’m going to start by defining what right- to- work means. Some people may misinterpret the meaning by thinking that it means that every person is ensured work or may be fired for any reason. This in fact is closer to the meaning of at will employment. This doesn’t ensure work but it does give the employer or employee the right to terminate at any time for any reason as long as it does not violate any laws. The purpose of right- to- work laws is to protect the employee by stating that you do not have to be part of a union to work for a certain company. So what exactly does right- to- work mean? According to the Mackinac Center, Right to Work facts authors Washburne and Kersey: “Right- to- Work is a state law that prohibits employers and unions from requiring an employee to pay dues or fees to a union in order to keep his or her job. While right- to- work laws do NOT allow individual workers to negotiate their own contracts, they...

She also outlines that those who oppose the right-to-work laws argue that the laws cripple the efficiency of the workers’ unions, thus rendering them incapable of negotiating on behalf of the employees.
