Do-it-yourself terrorism

Terrorism exists in many forms and with many motivations. However, terrorism as a weapon of the instruments of radical Islam is the best organized and directed of all such deadly groups in the modern era.

Less than a year ago, the focus of counter-Islamic terrorism was based on the fact that very few terrorists acted as “lone wolves” or, as they are known in intelligence jargon, “singletons.” That perception has changed dramatically. It’s now realized that a wholly new tactic requiring little training and organization presents an even more dangerous threat than the earlier operational approach of carefully organized, vetted and trained small “professional” groups.
