1. Capron, T. A. and Mizrahi, S. B. (2016) Terrorism and Homeland Security: A
Text/Reader. Thousand Oaks, CA: Sage Publications,Inc.
Blakeley (textbook pp. 31-37) addresses an important issue in the study of terrorism — the question of terrorist acts and terrorist policies committed by nation states, by the state itself, against its own citizens or citizens of other countries. It is a controversial issue that has political implications. After reading her article, write at least one page, single spaced but in proper style and grammar, addressing the following questions (p.37):
1) Do you agree or disagree that a definition of terrorism, to be useful to the study of terrorism, should include the possibility that there exist state terrorism? Why or why not? And what about the USA?
2) If you lived in Syria or Saudi Arabia (or anywhere an oppressive dictatorial government clings to power by annihilating its opponents) what would your definition of terrorism be?
3) Does Blakeley adequately source (find evidence) for her material? Was it convincing?
