However, it was when al-Qaeda and its affiliates were established to have been
behind the 11 September 2001 (9/11) attacks in the US that the age-old images
of Islam – the dogmatic, backward and fanatical religion – were significantly
revitalised within the Orientalist2 discourse.3 The 9/11 attacks also fuelled
apprehension about jihad and its potential implications, including massive
terrorist attacks on Western nations, the re-establishment of the caliphate,4 the

September 11 through the Holocaust Lens The attacks of September 11
unleashed waves of media representation that served multiple and often
conflicting purposes. Among them were three imperatives of the American mass
media: the journalistic need to report an overwhelmingly important news event to

drenched images ...

intimacy of face-to-face communication between the villagers. We live in a largely
mediated world ruled by government media monopolies or commercial media
oligopolies that ...
