This chapter addresses a fundamental issue of debate — the mounting incidence of intolerance when it is not confronted in a pluralistic context. Adopting the premise that some States in the world, led by America, overreacted to the threat of global terrorism following the attacks on the United States on 11 September 2001, it views those responses as a setback to the promotion of human rights. It explores the impact of globalization on the responses of States, and examines the relationship between the notion of human rights and activities related to the use of violence. It also examines the role played by the International Criminal Court, the UN Security Council, and other international entities in this regard. The author concludes that an exaggerated response to terrorism led to a diminution of other security threats.

Keywords:   religious intolerance, terrorism threat, International Criminal Court, the UN Security Council, Iraq War, War on Terror
