What is terrorism?

A Question A Day

During the French Revolution in 1793 and 1794, the people in power massacred all those who didn’t share their ideas. This dark period of french history is called “THE TERROR”. That’s where the word terrorism comes from. Today, terrorism means all violent actions committed by an organization in the name of an idea.

So, why do terrorist organizations use violence?

Violent actions disrupt the daily life of those people attacked and force countries to react. These terrorist attacks can be carried out even if the terrorist organization is not very rich. They still provoke a huge reaction in newspapers, on the Internet and on television. This allows terrorist to make their demands, their ideas and their claims known.

Since 1880, there have been several waves of terrorist attacks, each with different demands. On the 11th of September 2001, two planes crashed into the towers of the World Trade Center in New York, in the USA. That was one the first attacks marking the start of the present wave of terrorism. A so called religious wave. The organizations behind these terrorist attacks claimed to act on behalf of a religion. This wave of terrorist attack is also being talked about all around the word like never before.
