Saudi Arabia's Role in the War on Terror

Ali S. Awadh Asseri

Combating Terrorism describes the efforts made by the Saudi Arabia government to combat the scourge of terrorism with specific reference to the innovative three-pronged Saudi strategy that has been successfully implemented in the Kingdom. Asseri traces the problems relating to defining terrorism, highlighting the difference between a terrorist and a freedom fighter and goes on to a functional definition of terrorism. He also discusses terrorism in practice and highlights the purposes and goals of terrorism, defines it in its historical perspective and concludes with terrorism practiced in the name of religion.
