Is Terrorism a Threat or a Political Commodity?

Crimes are always committed by different means of killing, either directly or indirectly. Mass killing is despicable no matter what means and reasons are used to justify the conduct. Killing people in the name of god, in the name of human rights and in the name of maintaining a democratic state all have the same title, terror. The term terror or terrorism has been there for hundreds of years, but when terror is mentioned today, the first thing comes into our minds is Islamic terrorism due to the deadly terror attacks being carried out worldwide and all by Muslim suicide bombers who believe that there are seventy virgins waiting for them at the heaven’s door.   

 

Killing innocent people in public places can’t be accepted and justified. Invading sovereign foreign country in the name of weapons of mass destruction which was never found but leaving the country broke and destroyed and fell into the hands of ISIS can’t be justified either.

Nowadays, the world is standing together in the face of terrorism, which is a good thing. Ironically, even those countries who are the biggest exporters of terrorism claim that they also stand against terrorism and fear. As we all know that most terrorists were taught and fed up with their extremist ideologies by the Salafi sect “ wahhabisim”. This sect is widely dominating not only Saudi Arabia and the Middle East but also most of the Islamic world today. The world has to stand together against radicalism not terrorism. They get their financial support from charity under a great Saudi royal family support and encouragement. Their religious enforcement police called the sharia police is also funded by the government.

 

It is useless to fight terrorism by only killing suspected suicide bombers, fighting terrorism should be carried out from the roots of that extremist doctrine.

It seems to me that the Saudi oil can work miracles and force countries to take sides with the wealthiest against the poorest. If we take a look at the biggest terrorist attack has been conducted on the American soil, 9/11, it showed clearly the identities of those attackers and their nationalities.

Fifteen of the nineteen hijackers were Saudis and the rest are from the United Arab Emirates, Egypt and Lebanon. ironically, the president of the united states Donald Trump singed two executive orders claiming that banning people of certain countries is to protect the American people from foreign terrorists entering into the united states, and none of these four countries is included. I tend to believe that terrorism is a dirty game in the hands of politicians and it is used as a political commodity.

In reality, the strong decides for the weak! This is the order of the jungle! Never try to prove it incorrect for its reverse effect will be too high to pay.

Terror is a political tool, and it is not limited to weapons or length to which the measures are taken. Terror can occur within countries, between countries, between families and within families.

Not in many places outside Islamic world is terror within families practised to degree of honor killings for example, but even in the most well off countries in Europe and North America, there are religious Christian and other sects practising their own "laws".

Terror as concept extends much wider than presented by OP.

CORRECT! This is the real world! Sympathy is imaginary for dominance! Hegemony dictates the order!
