Abstrakt

This paper includes a theoretical understanding of the affects of rhetoric, metaphors and dehumanisations in political speeches. This theoretical framework is used to analyse specific chosen speeches of Barack Obama, David Cameron, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. The analysis is done in order to get a comprehension of how rhetoric, metaphors and dehumanisations, in the analysed speeches, are influencing the image and perception of Muslims and IS. An understanding of what affect the modern media has on this image and perception of Muslims and IS is also provided, in order to get a broader perspective. An understanding of the image and perception of Muslims in the Western world is also included, with both a historical and contemporary focus.
