This polemic discusses how countries such as the United States and Israel allegedly view the so-called terrorist states of Iraq, Afghanistan, and Palestine, contending that Western powers behave in much the same way as terrorist and extremist groups.MoreThis polemic discusses how countries such as the United States and Israel allegedly view the so-called terrorist states of Iraq, Afghanistan, and Palestine, contending that Western powers behave in much the same way as terrorist and extremist groups. Arguing that countries such as the United States demonize certain sets of people--termed the Other--the author goes on to suppose that these countries adopt a similar attitude of hate and violence as right-wing terrorist cells, making extremists in these countries irrelevant.
