Targetted Terroists

Updated on May 6, 2017

Definitions of Terrorism

Dictionaries define terrorism as the unofficial or unauthorized use of violence and intimidation in the pursuit of political aims. Is there name of religion in the definition? Let us look at some more definitions.

Merriam-Webster online dictionary calls terrorism as:

violent or destructive acts (such as bombing) committed by groups in order to intimidate a population or government into granting their demands

Title 22 of the U.S. Code, Section 2656f(d) defines terrorism as “premeditated, politically motivated violence perpetrated against noncombatant targets by subnational groups or clandestine agents, usually intended to influence an audience.”

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) defines terrorism as “the unlawful use of force or violence against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives.”

freedictionary.com defines terrorism as the use of violence or the threat of violence, especially against civilians, in the pursuit of political goals.

"International" terrorism - the subject of the American report - is defined as "terrorism involving citizens or the territory of more than one country".

A recent book discussing attempts by the UN and other international bodies to define terrorism runs to three volumes and 1,866 pages without reaching any firm conclusion.


Word Origin and History for terrorist

in the modern sense, 1944, especially in reference to Jewish tactics against the British in Palestine -- earlier it was used of extremist revolutionaries in Russia(1866); and Jacobins during the French Revolution(1795) -- from French terroriste ; see terror + -ist(also cf. terrorism ). The tendency of one party's terrorist to be another's guerrilla or freedom fighter was noted in reference to the British action in Cyprus(1956) and the war in Rhodesia (1973). The wordterrorist has been applied, at least retroactively, to the Maquis resistance in occupied France in World War II(e.g. in the "Spectator," Oct. 20, 1979).

Wrong Reporting and Terrorism

Each and every definition of terrorism and terrorist obviously declares that unofficial violence to gain political interests is called terrorism. Media targeted the Muslims for overt and covert reasons as terrorists.There are many Christian,Jewish ,Hindu and other Terrorist organisations which are committing very heinous crimes against humanity but are not called as the Christian terrorist,Hindu Terrorist or Jewish Terrorist organisation. They are reported if anywhere, by their name as RSS,Maoist or IRA . When some other organisation commit some crime against humanity it is called a shoot out or clandestine in some other terms. If there is any Al Qaeda or ISIS which are also supposed to work for the West commits such acts ,they are termed as Muslim terrorists.

Why this dichotomy? Because the western countries are trying to devastate the Muslims and want to usurp their resources and identities. This trend will lead to more violence in near future.The concerned quarters The USA ,UN NATO and others are advised to rethink ,if they want to settle peace and harmony in this world.
