Abstract :

Globalization and terrorism have a symbiotic relation. If globalization is understood as a system that integrates all social, economic, cultural, and politicalorders in the overall homogeneity, then its relation to terrorism is symbiotic parasitism. In this sense, globalization is at disadvantages while terrorism is at advantages. Globalization is at disadvantages because of the impact it brings in increasing terrorist activitieswhich make people lose their confidence in the positive effects of this system, so that, the globalization makes the global security threatened. The terrorism is at advantages because it has an excuse to launch an action as a victim of the globalization’s injustices. They can campaign to the international community that their action is meant to express the oppressed community as a result of globalization. If globalization is understood as a means of mass media to extend the effect of its news coverages to the world, its relation to terrorism is symbiotic mutualism. The global mass media is benefited due to the occurrence of terrorism. The society also must have listened to every news related to terrorism, since it is important for them to increase their vigilance against the possible threats around them. This kind of relation makes the mass media which broadcasts the terrorism will be pursued by the consumers and the media's circulation will increase rapidly.
