Summary/Abstract: Fear is the most powerful weapon of all times, because you can hardly win a fight with your enemies as long as you are weakened by the fear, even more when you do not know how exactly your enemies look like. Those arguments are the centre of this paperwork and the main idea of terrorism: fear and the impossibility to know exactly your foe. Religious terrorism is the terrorism that has as main influence the religious fundamentalism, but not any kind of religion, especially Islamic fundamentalism. The principle that make Islamic fundamentalism the main source of religious terrorism is the idea of jihad, – known as holy war undertaken by Muslims. The dangerous idea of believing that you are empowered with the right to kill in the name of God is a very dangerous dogma owing to the fact that a man who is convinced that in the afterlife will be rewarded for his acts of murder, will not bend the knee in front of the law or in front of the idea of mercy for the religious enemy. This strong belief in their right to kill is seeding the fear in the soul of the enemy, because we do not know until now, how to make terrorists to have fear for any punishments or consequences of their actions. Taking everything into account, we ascertain that the hardest fight is against terrorism because the terrorists may very easily look normal, and may stay beside you not even knowing it.
