Beginning with the 1990s, numerous scholars, politicians and political analysts alike have characterized terrorism as global, religious, irrational and rising. The main characteristics of the “ terrorism”, its political, local and rational character, are outmoded in accordance with this line of thinking. Global terrorism is thought to be an enemy worth changing the National Security Strategy of the states in the international system, and even suspending some civil not to mention human rights. However, the decline or disappearance of many prominent terrorist figures or entire groups have been ironically overlooked, or selectively ignored as irrelevant to the “new” terrorism. This thesis challenges the aforementioned common knowledge and suggests that the “global terrorism” has very few if any differences from the “classical old” one. It remains a purely political, mainly local and definitely rational activity in a steady or declining stage.
