Question 1
• The 911 attack marks the beginning of a new era because of the followings EXCEPT:
• Many innovations of the “War of Unlimited Boundaries,” such as the concept of psychological war and the concept of virtual reality, were featured in the attack.
• The attack shows the world that in order to be safe, they should design their own “Star War” military programs to prevent their own 911s from happening.
• The attack was not planned by a country, but is instead planned by a trans-national organization.
• The attack was the first attack on the American soil after the United States has achieved superpower status, showing the world the importance of Homeland Security.
• The economic turnover of the attack is one of the most disproportionate examples in history.
Question 2
• The symbolic importance of the Al-Jazeera Television Network of Qatar in the Post-911 World Order includes:

(i). It is the first successful effort of Islamic countries to fight a “media war” with the Western media.

(ii). Its extensive coverage of Osama Bin Laden mobilizes the Islamic Fundamentalists, by proving Laden’s loyalty towards their anti-iconoclastic doctrines.

(iii). It represents a concerted effort of Muslims against the American “MIME-NET,” as Osama Bin Laden and the people of Qatar are belonging to rivaling branches of Islam.

• (i) only.
• (i) and (ii) only.
• (i) and (iii) only.
• (ii) and (iii) only.
• (i) (ii) and (iii).
Question 3
• In the Anti-Terror Coalition, which of the followings is NOT a rationale for these countries to participate?

• Mexico – to look for financial rewards from the United States.

• Uzbekistan – to be removed from the American list of authoritarian countries.
Question 4
• Mullah Krekar, the leader of extremist Kurdish Guerilla Ansar al-Islam, was arrested in Norway on 20th March, 2003. The Norwegian government alleged Mullah Krekar of linking to Al-Qaeda, and has planned series of asymmetrical attacks. Ansar al-Islam was formed in the Cold War era, which strived to achieve ethnic independence through strategies like killing civilians. Refer to the evolving definition of terrorism, which of the following world leaders IS likely to regard Mullah Krekar as a “terrorist”?
• Ronald Reagan, USA President (1980-1988).
• George W Bush, USA President (2000-).

• The book of Samuel Huntington has inspired extremist nationalists to challenge against their regimes by emphasizing their cultural differences.
• Nationalist Movements have gained momentum in Europe, owing to the perceived “threat” observed from migration of Muslims.
• Cultural and civilizational conflicts were the main focus of the Cold War, and the conflicts are prolonged afterwards.

• Leaders like George W Bush and Osama Bin Laden often consciously or subconsciously speak in religious tones, resulting in the revival of cultural identities in the world.
Question 6
• Which of the followings is NOT an argument likely to be presented by Eli Avidar, the Consul General of Israel in Hong Kong?
• The Israeli-Palestinian conflict is originated from the partition of Palestine, the British mandate, into the Arabic nation and the Jewish nation in 1948.
• Sharon was a glorious Israeli commander in the Six Days War, in which Israel defeated the Arabic Coalition army spectacularly. Thus, serving as the Prime Minister of Israel today, Sharon aims at settling the Palestinian Issue by the same unilateralism.
• Mohamed Sadat, President of Egypt from 1970 to 1981, was assassinated by Islamic Fundamentalists, because he was a “brave man” to normalize relationship with Israel.
• The Oslo Accord of 1993 was not rectified, because the Palestinians refused to accept the lands.
• The identity of Yasser Arafat, President of the Palestinian Authority, as a terrorist, was re-exposed after 911.
Question 7
• The Chinese positive involvement in the Anti-Terror Coalition was owing to the following reasons EXCEPT:
