Definition of the word intimidating

According to Myra Williamson: "The meaning of "terrorism" has undergone a transformation.

During the reign of terror a regime or system of terrorism was used as an instrument of governance, wielded by a recently established revolutionary state against the enemies of the people.

'Terrorism' currently lacks the precision, objectivity and certainty demanded by legal discourse.

The French National Convention declared in September 1793 that "terror is the order of the day".

The period 1793–94 is referred to as La Terreur (Reign of Terror).

These difficulties arise from the fact that the term is politically and emotionally charged.

In the United States of America, for example, Terrorism is defined in Title 22 Chapter 38 U. Code § 2656f as "premeditated, politically motivated violence perpetrated against noncombatant targets by subnational groups or clandestine agents." There are many reasons as to why there is no universal consensus regarding the definition of terrorism.

The symbolic, normative role of criminalization is of particular importance in the case of terrorism.

The criminalization of terrorist acts expresses society's repugnance at them, invokes social censure and shame, and stigmatizes those who commit them.

Moreover, by creating and reaffirming values, criminalization may serve, in the long run, as a deterrent to terrorism, as those values are internalized." The definition of the offence in criminal law treaty plays several roles.

First and foremost, it has the symbolic, normative role of expressing society's condemnation of the forbidden acts. Since states tend to be reluctant to undertake stringent obligations in matters related to the exercise of their domestic jurisdiction, a precise definition of the crime, which restricts the scope of those obligations, makes agreement less costly.

Various legal systems and government agencies use different definitions.
