The Effects Of Terrorism On Muslim Immigration Enc1102 Research Paper

1724 words - 7 pages

According to a Pew Research Center estimate, 23% of the world population or 1.6 billion Islamic muslims inhabit the global population. Islam also happens to be the world's fastest growing religion burgeoning at a rapid pace that will eventually overtake the world's largest religion, Christianity (Lipka). Nonetheless, the western world’s perception and misinterpretation of the peaceful religion of Islam has caused an outbreak of fear; thus beckoning hasty solutions. The most controversial is the question if muslim immigration should be temporarily banned as terrorism is on the rise? The gathered research will support that the growing Islamic community that has no coexistence with the the violent and misguided ideals of terrorists. Targeting the entire religion only damages and creates a stronger stereotype toward muslims, it denies equal treatment and fairness that should be extended to all rather than oppressing a religion thus creating a class of civilizations, and it would be the same misinterpretation of the constitution which allowed the internment of Japanese-Americans (and Japanese residents) during World War II(Eland). Therefore, Muslim immigration shouldn’t be affected by the senseless acts of terrorism.
Muslims face the victimization of being linked to terrorism in western culture.

When the act of one or a group claiming to represent Islam carries out a terror attack, 1.6 billion people are affected by the worldly discrimination. No other race nor religion faces such harsh persecution due to extremists. As long as Islamophobia is a present factor, the political move to ban Muslims from entering the country will only benefit the growing stereotype. David Petraeus, a retired American military officer and public official who served as Director of the Central Intelligence Agency, states perfectly the atrocities that a policy banning Muslim immigration would “Rather than making our country safer, they will compound the already grave terrorist danger to our citizens. As ideas, they are toxic and, indeed, non-biodegradable - a kind of poison that, once released into our body politic, is not easily expunged.” Petraeus indicates that in battling the fear of “Islamic terrorism” by denying muslim immigrants a home in our western society, it will only fuel...
