Their Beliefs and religion is the stem of many problems in the world today. The terror attack of September 11 th is the root of where many American hate for Muslims grow from. Since that event there have been many terrorist attack attempts and threats. These spasms have caused many Americans to be scared of Muslim people to the point where they do not want Muslims within their community to build Mosque. This can be called Islamophobia. It has also caused airports to enforce their security to judge Muslims who were not involved in the terrorist attacks of 9/11. Ten years after the event it is prevalent that Americans are still infused with hate and distrust amongst Muslim people. What is sad is that no one can pin point what caused the attacks. Some say that it was a mastered plan by the Al-Qaeda organization. Others have a strong belief that then President Bush could hold blame. But there is no source. In all Muslims interpretation of their religious laws or texts (Quran) makes them harmful people.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
