Although words have undeniable power, oftentimes simply reading a message is less effective than absorbing through graphics, videos, or art. For that reason, we made variety of presentations of our content through different forms of media.
"In Our War"- Our video, also on the homepage. It seeks to introduce the meaning, purpose, and values of this website to the viewer through dramatic literal and symbolic
representations of terrorist events. Due to time constraints (an introductory video cannot be overly long), it only includes the most dramatic photos and footage we could find; it shows footage of the September 11th attacks and images of the ETA. It plays to the dramatic
soundtrack of Mussorgsky's "A Night on Bald Mountain" in order to further evoke emotions of fear and sadness in relation to the evnt. Note that we sought to use "No More", a song against violence and terrorism, by musician and peace activist Salman Ahmad and iSufiRock Records, but were unable to obtain permission to use it in time.
"Montage"- Our slideshow. It provides another, more visual way, to learn about specific events. You simply click on images about which you are curious to see a subtitle. Many of these incidents or groups are discussed on our site.
