Abstract:The purpose of this study was to explore the relationships between racism, negative attitudes toward Muslims (Islamophobia), religious dogmatism and attitudes toward war in the months following the 9/11 attacks. Understanding the relationships between these factors may help decipher possible underlying reasons for the fall out of the 9/11 attacks, in particular the U.S. initiation of wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. A review of the literature suggested that racism, Islamophobia and religious dogmatism may lead to violence and in some instances, war. A survey was administered to 199 men and women residing in both Los Angeles and New York City. Positive significant relationships were found between all four variables. Racism accounted for a significant amount of the variance (39.7%) in the acceptance of war. Thus, it was suggested that the endorsement of we/they relationships and in-group/out-group phenomenon may be factors contributing to violence and war. While racism appears to be the predominant predictor, Islamophobia and religious dogmatism did show individual relationships to the endorsement of pro-war attitudes. Although war is a complex system, this dissertation suggests that underlying and unspoken attitudes and beliefs may be relevant to how, when and against whom we go to war. Additional research is suggested and implications for the understanding of peace making are discussed.
