Personal Philosophy of Culturally Competent Nursing

I will pay for the following article Terror as Foreign Western Media’s Portrayal of Islam. The work is to be 8 pages with three to five sources, with in-text citations and a reference page. A major complaint from Muslims all over the world is Western media’s falsification, over-generalization, distortion, and sensationalization of stories that touch on Islam (Asadullah 195). The main problem is brought about by ignorance or carelessness, prejudice, or because the Western media does not have the ability to separate myth from reality, or probably because they do not understand the social, religious, and political dynamics of the Muslim societies (Hafez 19). In his speech at Cairo University in 2009, President Obama spoke favorably of Islam saying that Islam has always been a part of America’s history. He even added that Arab-Americans had fought in American wars, served in the government, stood for civil rights, started businesses, taught at American universities, had excelled in their sports arenas, won Nobel prizes, built their tallest buildings, and lit the Olympic torch (FAIR 1). These undeniable facts articulated by the U.S President should be what the Western media focus on, but unfortunately, their portrayal of a whole lot of 1.5 billion Muslims is nothing but sickening. This paper intends to shed light on the gross misrepresentations of Arabs and Muslims in the Western media by exposing these biased stereotypical misrepresentations. It will be found that the Western media propagate an inaccurate and unfair image of the collective Arabs and Muslims due to their lack of ethical principles of truth, fairness, objectivity, and balance. In addition, this paper will explain why this phenomenon continues and see just in passing what can be its solutions. To begin with, negative stereotyping is the putting of unpleasant labels and characteristics on a group of people based on unfounded allegations while forgetting to account for their individual differences. This is where the Western media is particularly in error. There is a strong inclination in Western mass media to categorize Islam as a fanatic, and violent religion characterized by the chopping off limbs, violation of the rights of women, and representing a strong opposition towards cherished Western ideas and values of freedom, human rights, and democracy (Poole 17).
