The overall terrorist threat is skewed because most analysts map terrorist trends and patterns by examining only incidents of international terrorism. The decade preceding 9/11 witnessed a steady decline in the incidents of international terrorism, largely due to international cooperation. However, the overall incidents of terrorism increased due to an increase in domestic terrorism. The overall increase in terrorist incidents is attributed to the numerical increase and the intensity of intrastate conflicts.

It is often pointless trying to explain the mindset of terrorists without knowing about their backgrounds, previous situations, and how the group recruits or operates. Often, the reality of life as a terrorist is very different from the image or motivating factor that caused the individual to join in the first place. The factors that drive individuals to join a group can also become the factors that make them want to leave, if membership of the group ceases to satisfy or fulfill that need that caused them to join in the first place.

Some individuals join or support a terrorist group for social recognition or social acceptance. Clark (Terrorism, 1983) found when investigating ETA that in the Basque region of Spain, mixed-parentage children (those not “pure Basque”) are reviled, and that only 8 percent are of mixed Basque-Spanish origin. When Clark investigated the background membership of ETA he found that over 40 percent of the terrorist group were from such mixed-parentage families, thus suggesting that they were trying to show that they were so Basque that they would go to the extremes of fighting for Basque independence; in other words, they were attempting to “out-Basque the Basques” (Reich 1996, 29).
