The World Trade Center 1993 Attack vs. Osama Bin-Laden’s Fatwa as Causes of the September 11, 2001 Terror Attack

University Commons

It is important to study the causes of the September 11 attacks because knowing the root cause of a problem is the best way to fix it. In this study, I will research the question: Was the 1993 World Trade Center bombing more or less of a cause of the September 11, 2001 attacks than Osama Bin-Laden’s fatwa, issued in 1998? I will be using the case study method to conduct this research by looking at previous research done on both topics and coming to a conclusion as to which event was a more major cause. This study is going to help researchers uncover the extent to which both the World Trade Center bombing of 1993 and Osama Bin-Laden's fatwa caused al-Qaeda to want to attack the United States on September 11, 2001 and it will also give researchers a better idea of how jihad and Sharia law play a role in terrorism.
