By Kire Janev, Metodija Dojcinovski and Nenad Taneski

Abstract

One of the biggest challenges in the XXI century is the struggle against terrorism. Terrorism is designed to cause fear, panic, and publicity among the masses in order to achieve its goals. The emergence of suicide terrorism is characteristic for terrorist attacks in the early XXI century. If you take the large number of terrorist attacks carried out by suicide bombers, massive human casualties, and material damage, it is clear that suicide terrorism in one of the biggest threats for national security of countries. Suicide terrorism escalates in many fields in which war activities were taken or in the countries with weak political government. However, the last terrorist attacks in France and Belgium show that terrorist organizations are ready to use suicide terrorism as an efficient tool to achieve their geopolitical and economic aims. In this paper, the main hypothesis is based on the fact that suicide terrorism, as a global phenomenon causing great number of human casualties, in the absence of a strategy for its neutralization in modern democratic states, is an essential tool for achieving the objectives of global religious militant organizations
