ISIS vs Al-Qaeda
Since launching one of the most publicized foreign attacks in history, the multi-national
jihadist network known as Al-Qaeda has fuelled the better part of post-2001 terrorist
discourse. However, an organization that arose from its Iraqi branch has since surfaced as
al-Qaeda’s staunch competitor. Despite being initially dismissed by President Obama as a
‘J.V.’ team, the Islamic State in Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) has, in just a few years,
become one of the world’s most feared and sensationalized terrorist organizations.
Although both Al-Qaeda and ISIS defend Salafi Jihadism, their core goals diﬀer
fundamentally. It will be argued that its calls for an Islamic state and

Magic was a very highly respected force in ancient Egypt. The ancient people believed magic could solve almost any daily problem. They also believed that the more magic someone or something possessed the more powerful the person or object was. The ancient Eegyptians greatly valued magic as seen by its practice by the general public and having multiple gods of magic such as Heka and Isis. Comment by thomas.boyd: TS
Folk Magic was practiced very often by the general public of ancient Egypt. The people of ancient Egypt believed in the idea of magic so strongly that they could not fathom the idea of a life without it. Common people used magic almost daily. “Folk magic, practiced

radicals. These groups seek religious and political dominance, regardless of the intimidation, torture, terror and murder they implement to obtain that dominance, with many having ties to the Al Qaeda network. The growing influx of Christian refugees into Southeast Asia poses a threat to these extremist groups, prompting them to take violent political action. The action taken by terrorist groups has grown so exponentially that the prime minister of Singapore, Lee Hsien Loong, has called Southeast Asia a “key recruitment area for ISIS.”
Historically, the existence of various extreme religious groups within Iraq has created an environment filled with intimidation, violence, takeovers

Another miscommunication people relate to Islam, is that Islam is“ISIS” or Islam
claims “death to all”. First of all, none of that is even close to being true. In Islam, they
don’t provoke violence in any shape or matter. I don't think people realize how EASY it
is to manipulate any religion, race, sex, etc. You want proof? Take ISIS for example, they
claim to be Muslim, but they don’t pray in the right direction. Muslims pray towards
north in one direction which is towards the Ka’Bah (Holy Temple) and ISIS prays in a
full circle or any direction they want, which is 100% clearly definitely wrong. People

yet. In this news report there was more subjective commentary than the first. There was speculation on whether one suspect would have been a part of the recent bombings if he wasn’t caught prior to them. Also, commentary on how large they assume ISIS network in Europe is becoming and how many people they are recruiting from Europe. There were not any facts given that supported these assumptions. The last news report I watched was from CNN. This report did not include a lot of factual information and was very brief. It was slanted more towards the misinformation from Belgium police on how many suspects there are. The news reporters also shared their views on how the Belgium officials will need

of Saudi Arabia. These two countries
have been old political rivals and they practice two different branches of Islam, Sunni and Shia
Islam. Basically, Saudi Arabia perceives Iran as a major threat to their middle eastern
dominance and tries to terminate every action taken by Iran to expand. On the other Iran
accuses Saudi of producing terrorist groups like ISIS and wants Middle Eastern dominance too.
3) Saudi Arabia's alleged support of ISIS:
After the Iranian parliament attacks in Tehran, Iran blamed Saudi Arabia for it and presented
the attacks as proof of Saudi Arabia's support of ISIS. This leaves us with a question, Is Saudi
Arabia supporting radical Sunni terrorist groups? During the

explanations of things people believe, but to a certain extent. One example is the astronomical beliefs of the past and present to the ancient science of alchemy which is portrayed as a pseudoscience. To fully undertake and grasp the "variety of engagements with nature in the early modern period, then we can find no better emblem than alchemy."(Tara, 334) Alchemy is a driving force that forces us all to keep focus at a productive tension between words and works in classical and modern natural knowledge.

In Syria, there are bombing raids every day. Children our age, younger and older, are suffering attacks supposedly made against ISIS. People are also suffering food shortages, hindered education, and dead relatives and friends. Overnight they have lost their shelter and food and normality. How would you feel if you had lost all your belongings and normality overnight? This may be something you might be able to think about today but is a reality in Syria.
Syria is currently getting bombarded by the USA, Russia, Australia, and France. There have been multiple airstrikes on Syria's terrorist population. These strikes have not only attacked terrorists but supermarkets and food suppliers

Part 2: Argument
As a Muslim-American, there are a lot of things about my identity that I cannot
express due to fear of being judged or hated. Not only does this happen to me, but
these are the harsh realities many Muslims face on a day to day basis. Islamophobia, a
term that has been very popular in the twenty-first century, is the fear, hatred, or
prejudice against Muslims or Islam (The Problematic Definition of Islamophobia, 2013).
The fear and loathing against Muslims has been going on for a long while but started

than the animals might breed in an otherwise troubled area in the wild. Captive breeding has saved such species as the European Bison, the Hawaiian Goose, and the Arabian Oryx, a type of antelope, from extinction.Zoos around the world lend and trade animals with each other through the Species Survival Plan (SSP) in order to avoid inbreeding, which can lead to a weaker population, and promote a healthier, more diverse group of animals. Many zoos also participate in the International Species Information System (ISIS), a computerized inventory of more than 250,000 animals housed in zoos throughout the world. ISIS maintains ancestral records for the animals to help document the animals' genetic

State jihadists. The internet is being used by Isis and such groups as a means of recruiting young and impressionable people used to reinforce extremist views and act as an echo chamber (Awan, 2017). Shoma stated she had regular contact with terror groups via Facebook, which was encouraging her and other Muslims to carry out Jihadist attacks in the west. The morning of the stabbing Shoma said she had downloaded a video from the Islamic state media centre, titled "war of flames" (Morris, 2018). When asked why she stabbed Mr. Singaravelu, she said: "If I didn't do it I will be sinful, punished by Allah" (Morris, 2018). It is evident that Shoma's behaviour was learned through her interactions

Terrorism in Syria
April 24th, 2018
There is countless problems in Syria involving the Syrian civil war, and a big part of the problem is innocent civilians being murdered by the hand of “terrorist”. I quote terrorist because the idea of terrorism can be pretty subjective depending on which side you’re representing. The US views groups like Al Qaeda and ISIS as terrorist, however some Middle Eastern countries may disagree, and even support them. The Government in war in Syria has the entire world’s attention and with so many parties fighting for the same land, many bystanders on all sides fall victim to opposing forces trying to force their

monotheistic religion, worshipping only one God. On the other hand, ancient Egyptians worshipped many different Gods for help or advice for certain situations. These Gods include Re, god of the sun and creator of all; Geb, god of the earth; Great Goddess Isis; and many others. These supreme beings all play a similar role by sending the message of morals and rules of the religion, their words are sacred for their followers.A noticeable similarity between the two beliefs are the morals sent down by the Gods and rules one should obey in their life. In the case of ancient Egypt, these ideas originated from many different Gods, while in Christianity there is only one supreme God. The manner of which

Jordan suffer from anxiety disorders and 8.5% suffer from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Refugees who suffer from PTSD often suffer from nightmares and flashbacks. Many of the Syrian refugees are often escaping the horrors of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. ISIS has been capturing Christians and other people who don’t agree in their principles and have been burning them alive, beheading them, and torturing them (Congregalli, 2015).
Congregalli gives more examples of how men, women, and children have been escaping their homelands due to torture for their sexual orientation, dangerous gender limitations, and differences in religious beliefs. Many women are kidnapped, forced to be

Why are those immigrants dangerous to the American citizens and should not be allowed to stay in this country? As some journalists interviewed those immigrants, “‘I wanna kill them in the thousands,’ Haroon, who is an immigrant in the United States, wrote, ‘We have to make an ocean out of their blood ... I wish we had someone to record their terrified screams’” (ISIS arrests: How many are from travel ban countries, 2017).

So the war on terror will essentially be fought on two fronts, one will be on the surface which is the likes of the conflicts with ISIS but there will and always have been a quiet war in the background but just as large in the cloud and thanks to Edward snowden and other individuals who have shed light on these matters we have a better idea of what is happening. With this knowledge we also know that our own online freedom will never be truly free.
