The word terrorism has popped up more and more times spreading through America like a virus, but this is no ordinary virus. This word is used to change the lives of one culture and to put fear in others throughout the world.

Department of homeland security and Domestic Terrorism One of the major reasons why defining domestic terrorism has proved difficult is because different agencies approach terrorism with their different interpretations (White, 2013). The difference between the various definitions of domestic terrorism lies within the various descriptions given about terrorists’ motivations. White (2013) classified domestic terrorism as either those that are politically motivated or others that attempt greater specificity.

However, these measures do not work in full for the following reasons: 1. There has been a week cooperation between the EU Member States and the special EU institutions (Europol and Eurojust) in this sphere, in particular on the exchange of information and in coordinating the work on joint investigations and operations. 2. There is a general reluctance on the part of States to provide financial assistance and to give up part of their political sovereignty to European counter-terrorism agencies.
