Every country has different types of terrorism culture. But while the culture of terrorism is different in Pakistan than in Israel, the nature and ideology of Islamist terrorism can look familiar in both countries. For example: Pakistan is facing several deadly attacks by TTP and its affiliated organisations. TTP’s goal is to establish an Islamist state in Pakistan. This compares to Israel facing Hamas terrorism, whose goal is also to establish an Islamist state by eliminating the Jewish state of Israel. Islamist terrorism has common themes anywhere in the world, even if their tactics can be different.
