Abstract: From Bali to Moscow, in South and West Asia, bushfires of “Jihadi terrorism” have flared up across the world after Sept 11. One year after the start of the USA’s Operation Enduring Freedom, the US and the rest of the world are only dimly aware of the nature of Osama Bin Laden’s International Islamic Front and the gravity of the threat posed to millions of innocent people by the irrational dregs of the second Afghan war. The international community has yet to find an effective response to the source of religious-inspired terrorism. India, China, Russia, Central and Southeast Asia, which face problems of extremism/terrorism in their territories, have with some exceptions, uncritically accepted the US perceptions of the threat and supported the US war against terrorism. However they would be well advised to take a closer look at the nature of the threat and devise their own response to the problem as it affects them.
