Today’s class was thought by Dr. Fouzy. The issues which were covering today’s class were…
Irredentism and Separatism
Fist he lectured on religion conflicts, he told us the in some religions there is no particular God or gods are worshipped. This confused me. Because I don’t know which religions do that I wish he could have made it clearer, so we could have understood better. However, in his slides it was written that “religious conflict is defined as incompatibility or disagreement arising from differences in faith and belief” which this is a common knowledge but the problem is how this happens. I believe that the people among each other have no problem but the religious leaders make the conflicts possible. And it is obvious that the leaders are untouchable but the people are always the victims.
The important point he talked about was terrorism. Nowadays everything has been mixed it is hard to verify it. According to today’s lecturing materials the definition of terrorism was “the calculated use of violence or the threat of violence against civilians in order to attain goals that are political or religious or ideological in nature, this done through intimidation or coercion or instilling fear. But in fact today it has become very complicated, because a lot of people who were no terrorist and they have become the victims of the phenomena. But the sad part is no one even listen to their pain or cared about them.
As conclusion today’s class was interesting and educational, looking forward for the next classes
