From Fox News to the Weekly Standard, non-conservative have tried to paint terrorism as an exclusively Islamic phenomenon. Their message of Islamophobia has been repeated many times since the George W. Bush era: Islam is inherently violent, Christianity is naturally peaceful, and there is no such thing as a Christian terrorist or a white male terrorist. But the facts don’t bear that out. Part of my third year final project at UWE I investigated all the terms used as a replacement for “Terrorist”. Taking the form of a holy book, this publication aims to question the notion of blame when throwing around such a dangerous word. This publication isn’t pointing a finger, simply removing the finger altogether. Terreō is Latin for 'I Frighten’, the origins or the word we hear all too often each and every day.
The front cover used an adapted 'T' for Terror and is used throughout the book.
The book is divided up into other words for terrorist and their meanings, and then 12 short excerpts on the use of the word.
Some might argue that an American MQ-9 Reaper is piloted by terrorism.
