Indeed, as a concept that “skates a thin line, hardly visible, between crime and war”. Terrorism is difﬁcult to construe from a purely value-neutral perspective (Weinberg 2005, p. 2). A recent study by Bayo (2013, p. 106) argues that “terrorism is being deﬁned in relation to one’s class position, social background, and as emotional responses expressed by those affected ‘victims’ or those who are being victimized from a particular act of terror at one time or the other”. Inferably, the deﬁnition of terrorism among scholars has become largely subjective depending on what aspect of the act the deﬁner is focusing: the objectives or the means towards achieving those objectives.
