Abstract:   (4706 Views)

The paper has centered on the question: why domination system with the leadership of USA always attempts to make and keep a climate full of outcry on otherness-making with regard to opposite currents and a state being of two imaginary poles of selfish and otherness and to spread false fear of others? Using a discourse approach, the author has concluded that the why and roots of such measures should be found in durable need of dominant western discourse (that of USA) to the existence of a fearful other for keeping identity unity and continuing its hegemonic place during time. In this way, the others made for itself by domination system play the part of an expelling agent to strength the identity of dominant discourse and, in spite of their cases and temporal conditions, are of the same usage. The consequence of such discourse in international area of politics may clearly be seen in USA leaders` using it to keep and continue to militarism, invasion, military intervention in different part of the world and increasing production of weapons.

Keywords: Discourse, Otherness, Hostility, Hegemony, Making, Expelling, Islamophobia.
