ABSTRACT
The article compares the nature of Islamic terrorism and Communist guerilla organizations which followed the path set down by Chinese communist leader Mao Tse-tung. Both modern Islamic terrorists and Mao's doctrine advocate protracted war aimed at ousting an invader or countering an external influence. Modern Islamic terrorism is almost exclusively urban while Communist guerilla were mostly formed in rural areas. Mao's doctrine involves a planned and phased centralization of forces while no such program is underway among Islamic terrorists.
