This will give you a better understanding of passive voice.
To change this sentence to active voice, you need to introduce a new subject to perform the action.

My first AHA Moment is on chapter 8 page 191-192 The Shi’ite and Sunni split. Muhammad had kept in enact the Shi’ite and the Sunni group. These two religions started to fray away because there was a big shift when Muhammad died between the two religious groups since Muhammad did not appoint anyone in charge of leadership. Their viewpoints of leadership are different which causes these two groups to split. The Islamic community considered Mohammad as a prophet of God after an angel appears in his dream with a revelation. Page 192 says Muslim believe Mohammad created the perfect Islamic community combining government and religion. This was one of the reasons these two religions were at dispute because Mohmand did not assign someone in charge of the community after his death. Shi’ite believe that only the heirs of the fourth caliph, Ali, are the legitimate successors of Mohammed. The Sunni wanted to maintain the Muslim community to select the Prophet's successor (caliph) to lead, whereas the Shi'a believe the Prophet chose his son-in-law, Ali, to be his successor. Even in their disagreement in today century, the most middle eastern people are Sunni. I found an article on CNN news that there are 1.6 billion Muslims across the world, roughly 85% of them are Sunnis. I found it interesting that regions as South Asia, Africa and most of the Arab world are dominated by Sunni, and Shi’ite are mostly greater in Indonesia and Pakistan. I choose this as my AHA moment because I was not familiar with these Islamic religion groups, I also learned the history of prophet Muhammad and the Islamic viewpoint. Today century, Sunni is the biggest group that is governing not only in the Arab world but also in East Asia. They both share the same belief; the difference has to do with political forces. By discussing these two groups, it has helped me to have a better insight in the Muslim culture and a brief history on Muhammad life, and what happen to the Muslim community after Muhammad died. On page 192 says questions over leadership spawned a debate and eventually a civil war. These questions still affect the practice of Islam today. My second AHA moment is on chapter 12 page 310 Understanding Domestic Terrorism. Like, in all aspect of law there is always a difficulty in defining what's considered as terrorism. Domestic terrorism is an act of terror committed by US citizens. This part of the book is interesting because the semester we have learned international terrorism. In this section of the chapter explain what is domestic terrorism; it is a domestic matter in our homeland within the United States. A great example is the shooting at San Bernardino, California when two Muslim couples killed 14 people at a Regional Center. When 14 people died the FBI was finding information to figure out what kind of case it is, is it an act of terrorism or not. Tashfeen Malik was shot and killed by the police, they found that she had pledged her allegiance with ISIS. Even though she was not inside of the organization she still acted as a state of terror. This event is considered domestic because it happens inside the United Stated their origins and plan was inside the US. This section also discusses how the level of security and training is advancing throughout the years meaning that even police officers are being trained to identify terrorists and how to respond to those terrorist attack. Now, this issue has become worldwide it is not only the agents’ issues but also police officers. A terrorist attack happens spontaneously without warning the homeland security agents are increasing their level of intelligence and security to catch these criminals. Just like we discuss in class it is very important that the level of security increase for the protection of the citizens. Terrorism is radicalizing all over the world not only in international but also domestic. Since, it is a domestic terrorism the community are getting involved if they see anything suspicious call the police. We are now living in the world where no one is safe, everyone is in danger children’s, teens, adults are under mass attack. And it is good to be ready in case anything happens. My third AHA moment chapter 8 page 313 Right Wing Extremists. This section caught my attention because I never heard of right wing extremists. The US Department of Homeland Security defines right-wing extremism as hate groups who target racial, ethnic or religious minorities and may be dedicated to a single issue. In the book discuss how the right wing extremist is traced back after the American revolution war. How two groups Whiskey Rebellion and Know-Nothings raised up and change history. Another interesting group is called the KKK these are the white supremacy group who uses violence to achieve their goal. I was intrigued on the video we watched in class regarding the KKK on who are they and their goal. I have heard of the KKK but was not very familiarize with the topic and their course history. Right wing extremists are considered terrorist because of the method of violence they are using. While reading an article online CNN news regarding right wing extremists the government says these are extremists who believe that they can ignore laws and that their individual rights are under attack in routine daily instances such as a traffic stop or being required to obey a court order. Their beliefs are strong and they withhold them until death. Right wing extremists are ready to fight and go to war and would not settle down until they finished their purpose. Page 317 their tactics are bombing, arson, kidnapping, murders, and ambush. They don’t coordinate or abide the law they are their own citizens and have their belief system which makes it harder to control extremists. Extremists are out for the hunt and to kill not caring the consequences or their terror action. Usually, their targets are governments officials or property, these extremists are anti-government. Because they are anti- government if they don’t like something they will destroy and get rid of it using all necessary force. They do not respect the law or officers they will attack courts, police stations or government agency. Right wing extremists are on the rise these days especially with all the violence that is happening they will take advantage of the situation.
