The threat of terrorism on Australian soil is a key feature of Australia’s security environment. The main source of international terrorism is from a global militant jihadist movement, which includes violent extremists such as al‑Qa’ida. Is terrorism really a significant threat to the Australian community, or are unprecedented government powers and counter-terrorism laws of greater concern? What are the risks of attack from foreign or domestically based threats? Australia’s broader defence and security interests are undergoing changes in strategic planning, including upgrading air and sea power, and realigning our traditional alliance with the US while engaging with emerging regional giant, China. How vulnerable is Australia to attack – are we prepared?

Terrorism has been practised throughout history. However it is only in modern times that the term ‘terrorism’ has been used to describe terrorist violence.
In ancient Greece the historian Xenophon (430-350 BC) wrote of the effectiveness of using psychological warfare against enemy populations.
It was not until 1795 that the terms terrorism and terrorist were recorded and used to describe the Reign of Terror instigated by the French revolutionary government.
