Hello,

There are various differences between scholars views on terrorism and the counter terrorism views on the same. To start with, scholars are interested with the terrorists psychology while the counterterrorism professionals are more concerned with eliminating terrorism. Besides this, the counter terrorism units are more concerned with suppressing the influence of terrorism through the use of law and war. This is not the case with scholars. Through studying the psychology of the terrorist, scholars seek to minimize their influence through social change. they want these characters to e taken to correctional facilities and change their ways to the better. Besides this, scholars view terrorism as a result of some dissatisfaction of the terrorists and they need these issues to be addressed with immediacy to change this. On the other hand, the terrorism professionals view it as a malicious act inspired by destructive instincts with no credible basis and they should be eliminated. These differences separates the scholars views and their counter terrorism counterparts on the subject.
