Terrorism is the material of a perilous thought process. Nurtured by weak souls seeking personal interests, and goaded by desires for vandalism, violence and murder, terrorism would threaten humanity as a whole, and annihilate future generations, one following the other. When we contemplate the word, blood comes to our minds, blood flow that would sink the ship of life. The world has differed around defining terrorism, but we all have agreed that the word means terror, from which the term terrorism has been derived. Though we have differing opinions around the methodological, doctrinal, literary, philosophical and political definitions of terrorism; and have conducted extensive linguistic and terminological researches, and came out with thousands of derivatives, some of them were convincing and others were totally irrelevant; we all have agreed that the cast-iron meaning of terrorism is death. It is a world of poor souls drenched with hatred, bitterness and greed existing

within our world, just as good exists in our world, evil also does exist. When we compare death with weakness the meaning of terrorism becomes lucid to all. Terrorism is death and weakness blended together; the first is for righteousness, and the second is for evil, and the result of this combination is destruction, ruin, fear and panic. When we utter the word terrorism, we have to research its roots and its interpretations, keeping in mind the vulnerable groups that could be exploited within the general conceptualization of terrorism; also keeping in mind the master minds of this act, its perpetrators, its links and layers, the societys frame of mind, the philosophical foundations, the aspirations, the action and reactions. In addition to that, we cannot underestimate the role of intellectual passion in this treacherous act. No dangerous exploit could be produced except through enormous good; which means greed and its root, propitiation and its consequences and worldly fantasies.

Terrorism methodology of targeting orphans is often overlooked. This group may be small in numbers, but it has a larger role in terrorism when mobilized to its advantages. Orphans could be easily controlled and manipulated to implement the mandate and requirements of terrorism. They easily fall into the grip of the dominant group, financially, intellectually and socially. They are deprived of love, care and the sense of security; their emotional need are not met, and in their search to fill these gaps orphans become the easiest group to be manipulated. All monotheistic religions have called for caring for the orphans, protecting their rights and raising them in a righteous way that would maintain their interests and the interests of society in general. Being the most vulnerable group in society, orphans are easy to be controlled intellectually, through indoctrination and propagation of misconceptions, and through reviving the spirit of subversion and violence in them. If the exploitation of orphans escalates, it would be difficult to limit, or put an end to terrorism in the whole world.

Subject of this novel (The Child of Satan under the Name of Terrorism). In this novel, I reflect on all the dimensions and pillars of terrorisms scenarios. In a somewhat whimsical way, I sum up the philosophical and symbolic realities of terrorism, detailing the behaviors that we might be oblivious to. I first look at the social classes in the whole world, without confining myself to one country or the other. One way or the other, the whole world is a partner in terrorism and in whats presently happening in our world. Then I focus on the details of the innate human behaviors tracing back the history of terrorism, the factors that lead to its irruption and its components that may be concealed from the eyes of the whole world. Further to that, I expose the crystallization of the thought process and the marginalization of some of the well known causes; such causes are so well known that we often are jaded by reading about them or taking notice of them. From there, I plunge into the circle of open discussion of the mutual involvement of the actor and object of the

act, leading me to conclude that negatives acts erupt from misleading and questionable positive ones. It is an illustration of human conflict erupting from blind individualism, saturated by greed, and engulfs the interests of the group. Then I delve into the objective aspects, strategies and social norms that are set by the parameters of society. I also tackle the individual and collective behaviors, everyday life needs, poverty, wealth, education and socialization; focusing on the effective role of socialization in reducing terrorism. I also paid attention to the general social culture; I have selected a number of terrorist attacks that shook the whole world in our present time, and detailed the cultural environment surrounding them in a literary narrative style that reflects the concepts of rapprochement and divergence between diverse cultures. Such concepts would cluster and split into social behaviors, habits and traditions, along with the dimension of terrorism keeping pace with the event and isolating it from its political, social, and intellectual roots.
