M3 Discussion Middle east Discussion on Terrorism vs. Acts of Violence and Language

this is for the M3 Discussion and for the M3 assignment which I did on its own assignment M3 Discussion Discussion on Terrorism vs. Acts of Violence and Language Please be sure to read the Content Guide on Terrorism for definitions and explanations and to prepare for the discussion Reading Qur’an by TAHA KREWI, on Flickr Creative Commons Creative Commons Attribution 2.0 Generic License by TAHA KREWIOpens in a new window Critically discuss how “terrorism” is viewed and perceived and discuss how “acts of violence” are perceived. You are welcome to develop this conversation with examples. Why is terrorism primarily discussed in the context of international acts of violence? Why is this term not used as frequently in the US for domestic acts of violence? How do media participate in this language and consequently influence the view of other groups outside the US? How is citizen journalism changing the dynamics of new reporting? The point here is to have a conversation about what we perceive as terrorism and begin deconstructing the “language” used. Please be sure to view the Content Guide on Terrorism for definitions and explanations. Support your points with newspaper articles, credible websites and videos (with citations) and current event information.
