Who and what is a terrorist or terrorist entity? August 2020


Definition of Terrorism  

Agencies such as the FBI, the US DOD and the US DOS realize the need to define terrorism. While each definition is a bit different, they do have constant themes. These themes include involving premeditation terrorist acts which are motivated by some political or social agenda, terrorists generally target non-combatants or civilians and are generally sub-national or clandestine groups. The configuration of terrorist groups is generally dependent on one's environment, relationship with the state, motivation and/or goals. 

What is a terrorist, or terrorist entity? 

Does the definition pertain to individuals and entities within the U.S.? 

Can this definition be applied to current public safety organizations nationally? 

Is simple logic of the definition and those that support an individual and organization be a form of 'State Supported' terrorism? 

Providing funding to an individual or entity perceived as a terrorist enterprise by open association fall under the terrorist umbrella?
