ازدواجية أمريكا تجاه الإسلام والإرهاب في ضوء تحليل الخطاب

Nur Syam

Abstract


The relationship between Islam and the West faces increasing tension nowadays. This tension is triggered by many terrorist acts in western countries. The West points out that Islam stands behind this ongoing terror, while Muslims are reluctant to be accused as perpetrators of terror. Terrorism in western countries emerges not only because of social, religious, ideological, and political movements, but also due to the expansion of the industrialization process which has resulted in negative effects for certain countries. The United States of America has contributed to this tension. A double standard by the West when promoting and implementing human right issues, especially in Israel and Palestine, has become another trigger for the growing tension between Islam and the West. This article examines this problem by analyzing the perspectives of Indonesian Muslim thinkers.
