They are as follows: -
1. Revolutionary Terrorism: revolutionary terrorism basically is considered to be the most common kind of terrorism. Groups or individual's who are considered as revolutionary terrorist try completely to finish the political system and create new structures.
2. Sub-revolutionary Terrorism: sub-revolutionary terrorism is not very common. Here it doesn't mean that the terrorist will finish or over throw the existing political system but they want to modify the system. Sub-revolutionary terrorists are very hard to identify.
3. Establishment Terrorism: where as in establishment terrorism the government creates such establishments. Such establishments are sometimes called the state sponsored terrorism. This type of terrorism is very common but it is difficult to find and identify. These groups are created to safeguard against foreign governments and groups etc.
Lets look at the origins of terrorism, from where it all began. Terrorism started a very long time ago, it goes back to somewhere in between the 1st - 14th Century A.D. the time of the Romans. History shows that the earliest organizations that showed some characteristics of a present day terrorist groups were Zealots of Judea, these people were know to the Romans as dagger-men. This group of terrorists used to kill Roman occupation forces and as well as any Jews who used to help the Romans. The group's motive for such kind of act was that they believed that they could not remain faithful to their belief of Judaism.
The word " terrorism" and "terrorist" came from the time of The French Revolution. But the use of the word terrorism started in 1795,with the reference of the Reign of Terror, which was started by the Revolutionary government in France.
Anarchists were considered to be the largest groups of terrorist in the 19th Century. They had the terrorist characteristics of both nationalism and political movements. The Anarchist group attack in Russia led to the murders of the Russian Tsars and it also led to the assassinations of American Presidents. And from thereon-forward terrorism spread like fire. In the 21st Century the most known act of terrorism took place on 11th September 2001, when America was attacked. That day 19 terrorist from the al-Qaida hijacked 4 US commercial passenger planes and crashed 2 of them into the World Trade Centre (WTC) in New York. The third one crashed into the Pentagon in Washington D.C and the fourth one was crashed into a field when the crew of the plane tried to take back the control form the terrorists. That day approximately 3000 people died. From that day onwards "War on Terror" began.
