The World Center was one of the most significant commercial complexes situated in Manhattan. Spanning over sixteen acres containing a large plaza, several buildings, and underground shopping malls connected them. As we all know, it was one of the most populated places in the state. It is very popular with the plaza’s centrepiece, the Twin Towers. The towers each had one hundred and ten stories and, together, were the productive offices of over about 35,000 people and over 400 hundred companies.
As per reports, the average demographics, and sheer dimension of the towers—each weighed approximately around 200,000 to 300,000 tons) made it one of the primary reasons for a terrorist attack. On top of that, the Twin Towers were considered as one of the most influential and most powerful symbols in America. In fact, in 1993, there were also reports of terrorists attacks in which explosives were detonated in a car parked beneath the World Trade Center, killing six people and injuring thousands.
On the same reports, the group targeting the Wold Trade Center—both in 1993 and in 2001—was led by an Islam extremist terrorist system, the al-Quaeda, founded by Osama bin Laden. With so many other organizations across other sixteen other countries (McCormick), al-Qaeda seeks to overthrow Middle-Eastern governments or other places with strong Muslim symbols that do not force religiously-sanctioned social and political order. The attacks on American land were made in attempt to dismantle the United States supporters, as they referred as “offending governments”. For the al-Qaeda, this is one of their biggest obstacles in building a global order under Islam.
On top of that, they were also dismayed over the American support of Israel, as well as their interference in the Persian Gulf War and their strong military presence in the Middle Eastern countries.
