...Terrorism al Affiliation Terrorism has existed throughout history and across different political systems. Just asthere are many ways terrorism is carried out, many definitions of the term exist. However, all kinds of terror attacks revolve around use of violent methods of execution, targeting governments and civilians, with the sole purpose of inculcating fear to force social and political changes. Terrorism began way back in the century of Judea, and it has changed in organization, financing and tactics throughout the years. For example, with the emergence of technology, terrorist groups in the twenty...

This is because terrorism has varied repercussions and effects on the people in distinct regions of the world. Some believe terrorism is when huge bombings and firing incidents take place while others realize this is something related with mere thinking ideologies, geared to bring down humanity in more ways than one. It is a fact that the world has encountered enough terrorist related events now that it can prepare a definition of this word which is more than a word, and indeed a full-fledged phenomenon. Due to the consequences...

...Terrorism Introduction Terrorism is the systematic use of terror especially as a means of coercion. In the international community,terrorism has no universally agreed, legally binding or criminal law definition. Common definitions of terrorism refer only to those violent acts which are intended to create fear (terror), are perpetrated for a religious, political or, ideological goal; and deliberately target or disregard the safety of non-combatants (civilians). Some definitions now include acts of unlawful violence and war. The use of similar tactics by criminal organizations for protection rackets or to enforce a code of silence is usually not labeled terrorism though these same actions may... ...

...Terrorism Terrorism Martha Crenshaw outlines seven points as the main motives behind terrorism. First, the terrorists are usually attempting to publicize the cause. Here, the terrorists want their acts to be made public. Second, they seek to disrupt normal functioning. This implies that they just want to show weaknesses of a government by disrupting its operations. Third, terrorists seek to establish public sympathy. Through the attacks, they can warn their enemies and inflict fear in them. Fourth, terrorists seek to provoke a government to respond. Such responses are usually harsh and affect the public (Crenshaw, 2011). Fifth, the group...

In fact, there are many cases where both reasons mutually contribute to the spread of terrorism.

...Terrorism Acts of terrorism can be said to be a violent crime against a nation. Being a crime, I believe, such acts should be treated just like other common-law crimes. Terrorists, therefore, should be punished in the same way other criminals are punished. I think there is no great difference in whether, let’s say, ten people are killed by a maniac or by a terrorist. The only difference is in their reasoning – one kills for satisfying a mania, the other – in the name of an idea. The results, however, are the same – pain, fear and terror. So which one is better – a serial killer or a terrorist? – Neither, of course. Furthermore, actions of...

Terrorists can kill a lot of people, but this raises the organization's profile and leads to an immediate counter-attack, which tends to exhaust the financial and operational security of the organization and causes the organization to have to cycle in new members; or they can kill only a few, doing less damage but staying around for longer.
