Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to try as much as possible to clear the mystery about the violent nature
of Islamic people and to investigate the reasons why they have resorted to terrorist acts marking the whole
history of mankind, in their insatiable quest for uniqueness. The p aper aims at capturing the developments in
the Middle East people who over the years have managed to impose their views and judgments by
intimidation methods. It also wants to be an analysis of the message sent by the Quran, much discussed and
still mysterious to many p eople. What does it really teach? Why do the Muslims believe th at their main
emblem is this book? Why put so much emphasis on the Muslim faith when assessing the potential causes of
Muslim world behaviors? In areas where Islam has created a gateway, it even until today fails to preach as the
theory promises (peacefull y), but by cruelty, murder and terrorist attacks. Finally an issue I will deal with a
very pronounced degree of controversy and also very attractive in terms of events latel y events that are
closely related to acts of terrorism.

and Ali) had subsequently led Islam to the stage of large expansion by conquest and wars, so kneeling
two great empires: the Byzantine Empire and the Persian Empire. The pagans were converted and
Muslims split came shortly after the resounding success of the three. So, on the one hand there were
the “Sunnis” and on the other the “Shiites”. Thus it begins a new stage in the development of a process
that we can easily call it “the new world order”. Islamism is an important political trend that succeeds
to shake regular sequence with spatial temporal, moral and logical feature of the occurrences.
Unfortunately, all Islam rejects vehemently the concept of “modern state”, even more than that, it
