Transcript of 9/11 - Muslims & Their Freedom

Al-Qaeda In 2004, suspicion grew on the Al-Qaeda's group leader, Osama bin Laden. He denied the involvement in the attack when it first happened, then later on admitted for being responsible for the attacks. The Americans sent troops to Afghanistan to get rid of the Taliban. In 2011, troops found Osama bin Laden and killed him. September 11, 2001 On September 11,2001, 19 terrorists from the Islamist group called Al-Qaeda hijacked four passenger planes. Two hijackers flew two of the planes, American Airlines Flight 11 and United Airlines Flight 175 into the north and south towers of the World Trade Center in New York. Another hijacker flew the third plane American Airlines Flight 77 into the Pentagon. The last hijacker flew the plane into the field but was planning on hitting the White House in Washington. 3,000 people died in the attack, including the 19 hijackers on the planes and 227 passengers. 9/11 Attack Muslims & Their Lack of Freedom Muslim Americans After the 9/11 attack, tension occurred between the Muslims and non Muslims. Thousands of people flew the country because they were afraid of what the American government was going to do or say to them. They could not come back into the country if they left though because America closed the border with Afghanistan on September 17th, 2001. Government Policies After the 9/11 attack, the United States created the Department of Homeland Security. It is to coordinate domestic anti-terrorism. They are able to monitor emails, phone calls, and internet use by terror suspects. The federal government created a law which allows security to force inspect passengers and luggage's if any suspicion. Muslim Americans Since 9/11, Muslims have been treated differently by the American citizens and the American government. Many have been deported, interrogated and arrested. It hasn't been the same for Muslim. A lot of people are hating on their religion and themselves because of the attack. They have been treated poorly because of people who decided to do something stupid and kill people. Loss Of Freedom Government Action

Electronic surveillance 100,000 Anti Muslim A factor that has helped create fear is the hate speech of public figures and leaders. Many public figures say Islam is a 'very wicked and evil' religion. 44% of America has a negative view of Islam and Muslims. Loss Of Freedom After the attack, Muslims have been given a hard time when doing certain things or not be able to do specific things like other Americans. When they want to leave America, they are constantly checked and questioned. Sometimes they are not even allowed to come back into the country if the security feels like they are a threat to the country. Some Muslims are not allowed to give their opinion or thoughts. FBI are always on top of the Muslim community making sure they are not planning on attacking the country or doing something that can affect them. They are also losing their freedom of religion. Many people think that their religion is teaching them the wrong way in life. Religion Due to the fact that Americans are against most Muslims, they cause problems with them. People have gone to the extent of burning the Quran and actually burned down Mosques. The most recent one was in Missouri on August 6th, 2012. Equality in America 'The Land Of The Free' yet does not except everybody for who they are. For the Muslim society, it is harder for them to get jobs in America. They are treated with less respect then the average American. It it easy for Muslims to lose jobs due to lack of trust. Personal Stories After reading many stories, a few were very shocking. One family was taken out of their home in handcuffs, even the children. They were put into jail until the government was ready to deport them back to their country. Another family was constantly questioned because of the area they lived in and their religion. The last story was about a pregnant lady who was stabbed and had her house burnt down. Questions How do you feel about the Muslims being treated differently?
Are you surprised about how Americans treat the Muslims?
Do you think Americans are taking it way too far by burning the Quran and Mosque?
