Introduction

There is a general consensus in the public that terrorism has changed in the last decades. Specifically, just prior to 9/11, there was a change in tactics and motivations behind most of the acts we see today. Before this change, the traditional terrorist had a specific goal in mind and made attacks against, more or less, those impeding their goals. These attacks were implemented to cause destruction of property or personal violence upon those with whom they had the grievance. Since the change, the motivations of terrorists have become much more general in who they consider a target, and much larger in scale, so as to involve even those who do not have a personal stake in the alleged grievances—innocents. On the other hand, there are those that say that the change is not actually due to a change in tactics, but due to a change in reporting and perceptions. We will explore both sides of this debate.

Suppose that as captain of the local police municipality, you are continuing your study into terrorism and the history of the related motives, methods, and desired results. Last week, you submitted your historical framework memo to your chief, and, in doing so, came across an intriguing concept, new terrorism. As you studied the history of terrorism, you began to wonder how, or what, caused this change to come about. As you began to look into the term, new terrorism, you found that there is debate in the scholarly world as to the existence, or at least the extent, of this concept.

At your department, you have established a discussion chatroom with other senior staff. It was set up so that senior staff could interject their knowledge and suggestions as your project for the chief develops. You have elected to introduce the idea of a new terrorism for their discussion and input.

  • Non-Muslim Terrorist Groups

Competencies Addressed in This Discussion

Introduction

All of the attention that terrorist acts by Muslim extremists get in the press may lead one to believe that they have a monopoly on the act of terrorism. They do not. In fact, they do not commit anywhere near the majority of terrorist acts in the U.S. In order to fully understand the impact of terrorism upon law enforcement, and to keep from becoming deceived into believing that Muslim extremism is the only problem, it is imperative to investigate these other forms of terrorism.

Return the scenario in which you are the captain of your local police municipality. During a staff meeting this week, some of the other members made offhand comments as to the extent, and media coverage, of religious-based terrorism in the world. They mentioned that it seems that Muslims are the predominate terrorists. Having studied the concept of terrorism thoroughly, you know that while the current attention is on extremists that advocate for Islam, they are neither the spokespersons for all Muslims nor are they the only terrorist threat law enforcement must be prepared for. After you shared this information with the group, to make sure that they do not develop a fear of Muslims in general, the command staff expressed an interest in the terrorist organizations that were not associated with Islam and asked if you would provide them with information for discussion and debate.
