terrorism after we already have started working on the other course of panning because you were not available in the first week to work on this course. This course is Principles of Terrorism and like what I did in the other course, I will upload here some attachments of the syllabus, organizer, and Discussion Board weekly questions of this course and please PRINT THEM OUT with the other attachments of the other course and let them available and reachable because you will need them weekly to get the big picture of bot courses and know what all the requirements are for them.
The idea of this course, as you can see in the syllabus and organizer, to have one week for a question for the discussion board and one week for a case study and I already have finished one question for week 1 discussion board and one case study for week 2 and now we are in week 3 for a weekly question for the discussion board and next week, week 4, there will be a case study and so on. I hope you’ve understood this system of this course and to avoid any confusion please find the attachments of the syllabus, organizer, and DB of this course in the attachments.
– I will start with the course description (taken from the syllabus of this course I’ve already sent you):
– DMM 627 Principles of Terrorism (3-0-3) – The types of terrorism, along with the social, political and psychological motivations and ramifications of terrorism are the focus of this course. Terrorism threat risk assessment and prevention strategies are also components.

– The assignment of this week is as follows:
Today, looking at the threat of terrorism throughout the world, the question must be asked for both America and the world whether jihadist Islamist terrorism is the predominant concern, or even if it is the only concern. If not, what other terror threats might still exist and what level of resources should be committed to understanding them and preventing their attacks? In relation to this, what is domestic terrorism? What have been the historic differences in definitions between domestic and international terrorism and are those lines beginning to blur? Do you think that with the increasing presence of “foreign” terror groups on U.S. soil, the increasing recruitment of U.S. citizens to join “the jihad,” and the increasing incentivizing of Muslims living in the U.S. to join “the cause” and develop and execute their own “homegrown terror” attack plots, that they should still be considered international terrorists, or are they now domestic terrorists, or are the two classifications now irrelevant? Give me your opinion and support it with your best argument.
