Summary/Abstract: The terrorist phenomenon is an old one, but after the Cold War a new paradigm of terrorist activities emerged, based on a radical interpretation of religious doctrines like Islam and the wish of the religious fanatics to destroy all their enemies, to transform the societies by eliminating democracy, tolerance and rule of law. The new terrorists use all the modern technological innovations that the West has produced and the suicidal strategies, as they hope to spill-over the „holy war” on behalf of Islam, in order to destabilize all the countries in their region and replace their political regimes with a Caliphate regrouping all the Muslims. The globalization of the terrorist threat requires a coordinated and plannified response from the international community.
