Perhaps the most dangerous form of terrorism, religious terrorism is the most motivated and unexpected and certainly the most difficult to control due to the fanaticism that determines the militant terrorists to act. Most are willing to give their lives without resentment for the purpose instilled by so-called prophets. The most dangerous form is the Islam religious current which underlies the conduct of many conflicts between Israel and the Palestinians, between Russia and Dagestan, between Serbs and Bosnian Muslims, etc.. Most common religious groups are Hizb 'allah, Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood.
