Chapter Summary

The American State Department recently announced that the States in the Middle East made laudable efforts in the fight against terrorism during 2003. The Arab-Muslim States have worked very hard towards overcoming and continue to overcome the wrongdoings of terrorism. The definition of terrorism, as put forth in the Arab and Islamic conventions, is no different to that established by the UN. Apart from the general undertaking to prevent and combat terrorism and to cooperate with other States in the fight against the phenomenon, the participating states undertake to assume two types of obligation; those that relate to the issue of security and those arising from the implementation of judicial proceedings. It is important to remember that the Moroccan law was adopted 12 days after the terrorist attacks in Casablanca on 16 May 2003.
