INTERNATIONAL TERRORISM - ALL TYPES OF MOVIES ON TERRORISM

by samratnigam | created - 22 Jun 2011 | updated - 21 Mar 2012 | Public

Definition - Terrorism is the systematic use of terror, especially as a means of coercion. In the international community, however, terrorism has no universally agreed, legally binding, criminal law definition. Common definitions of terrorism refer only to those sadistic violent acts which are intended to create fear (terror), are perpetrated for a religious, political or ideological goals; and deliberately target or disregard the safety of non-combatants (civilians). Some definitions now include acts of unlawful violence and war.

[Right now we face it. No religion teaches to hate but some brainwashed misguided organizations, individual's or people (Al Qaida& Taliban in west asia, europe and the middlle east, ISI in Pakistan, Tamil Tigers of Sri Lanka previously LTTE now destroyed, Hamas& Hizbollah, Let, Hizbul Mujahideen& Jem in Kashmir, Chechnya Islamic terror groups in Russia, IRA in Ireland & Etta in Spain etc.) love to hurt and harm the innocent to meet their political agenda through hate & violence. In some cases somebody's terrorist is considered somebody's freedom fighter. The world is suffering from the evil wrath of Terrorism since 1945. 'Terrorism is a religious hate ideology against another alien religion and a scourge on humanity' as the world still suffers from it until the world unites and defeats it forever.]
