There is a group called Hamas “their goal is the destruction of the state of Israel. In the 1990s, they bombarded Israel with suicide bombings.”( Sven Pöhle / nm) One of the longest lasting feuds has been between the Palestinians and the Israelis they have been fighting for a piece of land that the Palestinians believe belongs to them. They have been fighting for years now and the Palestinians keep attacking the Israelis in order to get them to leave.

The stressful part is not knowing when an attack will happen and the location. Terrorism not only effects the people but the government as well because its purpose is a political reason. According to Federal Bureau Investigation   (2016), “Terrorism is the unlawful use of force and violence against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives." The United States has had many attacks and attempted attacks against the government and citizens. The main goal of terrorism is to communicate a political message to the world, not necessarily to defeat the enemy. Researchers have found that the reason there main goal is politics wise is because they feel foreign governments won’t listen to their mission, goals, etc. As a result they intimidate those governments by violent acts.

Effect of Terroism

...Name Course Instructor Date Cause and effect of September 11, 2001 terrorist attack Although often caused by nature, disasters can have human origins. Often it is the unpredictability of such disasters that causes fear, confusion and stress that have a lasting effect on the affected community. In recent history, the Sept 11th terrorist attack is one such example. This paper will examine the terrorists’ motivation towards committing the attack and the effect it had on the American society. According to Pedahzur (2006), terrorist groups exist for the purpose of planning and executing attacks to accomplish their mission. Included among the objectives of terrorism are demonstrating the group’s power over population and government, exact revenge for perceived persecution and satisfy the group’s vengeance while at the same time gaining publicity for their actions. Accordingly, the September 11 attacks can be interpreted both as a direct signal to the United States to behave in a certain way and as an indirect signal to potential sympathizers that the united states is not invulnerable. Looking at it from this point of view, it can be debated that the most important cause of the terrorist attack was to diminish US prestige in the Arab world by sending the message that the symbols of UC economic, military and political power could be attacked (Pedahzur, 2006). Terrorism can cause cascading effects that can have global effects. As the term alludes...
