Croatian International Relations Review, Vol.9 No.33 October 2003. -

In the very beginning of the 21st century, the world is facing a new threat - global terrorism. This kind of terrorism is different from the terrorism the world used to know. It has different actors, different aims and more terrifying lethality. The attack on the World Trade Center, September 11, 2001, is the event that unquestionably proves that. After that terrifying incident it was clear that terrorists could attack in any way and anywhere, but the states would not know where to strike back. On the one side there is a little group of people armed only with knives and on the other are countries with powerful armies, air forces and nuclear weapons, but unable to respond adequately.

It can be said that a new war is in the offing, the war that aims to end globalization, hegemony and Western World supremacy. As Jean Baudrillard expressed in his article -The Spirit of Terrorism-: -The first two World Wars were classic wars. The first ended European supremacy and the colonial era. The second ended Nazism. The third, which did happen, as a dissuasive Cold War, ended communism

.But the fourth World War is elsewhere. It is that which haunts every global order, every hegemonic domination; -if Islam dominated the world, terrorism would fight against it-.

terorism; terrorists; combat against terrorism
