Top 10 Terrorist Groups

List of terrorist groups that have caused chaos all around the world depending on where the victim country is, their religion, their race etc.

The Top Ten

1 Al-Qaeda Al-Qaeda

The truth is there is no Islamic army or terrorist group called Al-Qaeda.
Al-Qaeda is a product of a western intelligence.
Bin Laden was, though, a product of a monumental miscalculation by Western security agencies. Throughout the 80s he was armed by the CIA and funded by the Saudis to wage jihad against the Russian occupation of Afghanistan. Al-Qaida, literally "the database", was originally the computer file of the thousands of mujahideen who were recruited and trained with help from the CIA to defeat the Russians.

Conclusion: USA is a mother of producing Terrorist Groups.

I like al Qaeda

Al Qaeda is ass now lol, Obama (even though I don't like him) took Osama out so now Al Qaeda is trash - Flyside

It's a killing machine

This is responsible for the many killings of 9/11 event - Leafeon

These people are just too harsh they should stop doing this instead they should start a better life

I'm a Muslim, and every time I hear about them bombing people, cutting little boys heads off and throwing them off roofs, holding girls as sex slaves, it makes me wanna PUKE. I bet my soul they're TRYING to make Islam look bad, and they will have a special place in Hell waiting for them.

Is the most know

This is fund rising group by USA and Saudi to attack Iraq and then later Iran, Syria as enimy of USA AND Saudi, But I think, Saudi will pay the price after USA join with Ireasl to control the Arab and then the power of Islam will decrease will be owned by minded Jewish... So ISIS is the start of loosing Islam in the world... In anyway Killing the oldest Christian and demolish the heritage site is non acceptable, because one day if someone attacks Saudi and destroy mecca, then world will be silent like removing old deserved Christian heritage in Iraq and Syria.. Because can't control the situations.. So any violence can be very dangerous and derive somewhere else..

Are you sure the USA is involved? France would never be attacked by them, as the French helped us gain independence. - MKBeast

3 Taliban Taliban

132 children and 8 teachers of Army Public School are killed by them. I just hate Taliban. - yeshal

Talibans are not human beings. They are wild animals, hungry, wild dogs waiting for a piece of meat... they are not Muslims.. they the the darkest side of this world, they do not follow Islamic principles, Islam tells us to kind, caring, Islam says that killing a man is killing humanity... i know one day they will suffer bitter death and cry bitter tears.. ALLAH will punish them

TaliBAN, government of pakistan please BAN the taliBAN

I hate the Taliban because they started the war in Afghanistan and Afghanistan was a peaceful country until the stupid Taliban came in and destroyed a lot of that country. I hate you Taliban!

4 Irish Republican Army

Grew up with these vermin, do as you're told or get kneecapped if you're lucky. Absolute scum bags and cause more fear to there so called own people than anyone else. And to the prick from Dublin in the last comment, you haven't a clue or been shot twice by these COWARDS.
IRA stands for I RAN AWAY

I thin Jon my opinion IRA are a very dangerous organisation (terrorist) but for a reason to protect there country IRA don't kill there own people but protect them I know this because I'm Irish I'm from Dublin I'm very into all the 1916 rising Michael Collins IRB and by far any Irish person except Northern Ireland because there on British but all republicans understand why IRA was created and did what they did and IRA are not cowards they were set up to fight and only reason they fought with bombs is because there things British couldn't figure out to make by them selves :P well and because the majority of British to people in IRA was far unfair even our own Irish people fought against the people trying to free our country well that didn't matter cause we still got Britain to give us our republic and only reason IRA took it is because Michael Collins made the short choice and there was nothing else he could do at that time he could have fought back for the rest but was shot by the IRA ...more

At the start they were freedom fighters sure. But now they're terrorists. (I'm irish.)

Few things here...

For the obvious revisionist Brit Loyalist in the comments below - Can't reference his tripe here so it begins with...

"the comments section is very dumb"

Ironic, as an educated Brit would know that dumb (perjoratve) means not being able to hear, as opposed to using US English - no probs with that...just have some doubts as to the validity of this gentleman's research and/or he/she is more than likely getting all their info from T.V. and not from books.


By the author's own logic...a terrorist attacks civilians (for no good reason...)
Therefore the IRA are terrorists...even though they did "have a reason"...

Here are just three (of a great, great many) acts of terrorism - Again, I am simply using the author's own logic and reason.

1. Bloody Sunday - British "state sponsered" Terrorists murdered civilians. VERDICT - Terrorist Brits
2. Amritsar Massacre (India) - Peeps peacefully ...more

5 Ku Klux Klan Ku Klux Klan The Ku Klux Klan, commonly called the KKK or simply the Klan, refers to three distinct secret movements at different points in time in the history of the United States.

American is number one terrorist

America has always been that one country who is willing to commit unresolvable war, due to their powerful militia and the firepower they are capable of. Despite that, people overshadow the true social issues in the United States such as racial segregation and discrimination which torments the image of the most powerful country in the world. The KKK, or Ku Klux Klan is one of those groups who are by far terrorists who have a special motive to screw a diverse society with an Anti-Sentimental background against the African Americans, Native Indians and especially people of Jewish and Muslim origin. This is by far the biggest terrorist organisation still continuing to tarnish society and will still keep it that way.

They hate, black people, Jews, Mexicans, immigrants, homosexuality etc. Sometimes they kill them too. - Luckys

Go KKK! Do terrorism, the American way!

Hezbollah is Lebanese group who defend their own country and lands

They are terrorist as by far truth is concern. I mean, who digs tunnel under the border of a sovereign nation, for the purpose of causing harm to its innocent citizens? TERRORIST!

Not sure if they are freedom fighters or terrorists, I just don't know. - BorisRule

7 Liberation Tiger of Tamil Eelam

The deadliest terrorist group of Srilanka, LTTE was founded by Velupillai Prabhakaran in May 1976, possessing a sophisticated military. However, it was defeated in May 2009 by Srilankan Military but it has a devilish record of assassinating high-profile Indian and Srilankan politicians. Banned by 32 countries across the world, this terrorist group was the main reason behind the Srilankan Civil War

They had submarines, battleships, and war planes

Freedom fighters

Not terrorists freedom fighters

8 Boko Haram

Ugh Just Horrible People.

Boko Haram will one day form a political party, rule Nigeria and then exterminate all Non-Muslim believers (infidels).

They are much less popular due to how news has chosen to portray events across the globe however I believe more people should recognize how much Boko Haram has done, in addition to ISIS. In fact, Boko Haram has killed more people than ISIS has. But why don't more people know about this group, we may ask ourselves. Humans have become so self absorbed and selfish. The news only reports on what is most important to us and what has affected us before (ISIS) instead of reporting all news without opinions like they should be.

It's as if they have no knowledge about Islam. They are called 'Extremists', but an extremist Muslim follows everything in Islam. Islam strictly forbids violence, so how can they be called Muslims? They made young girls convert forcibly. In the peaceful religion of Muslims, you cannot force anyone to do anything religious. It's very sad. almost all Muslims believe in peace... but with these terrorist groups people think wrong about Islam.

12 Bodu Bala Sena

They're cruel & evil! Totally baseless for what they're fighting for. Organized by shallow minded government of Sri Lanka (wherein their racist & foolish president might also have contribution towards this) as well as the shameful monks who in hell does no longer look respective but, looks like devil with their orange outfit.
They're free to bad talk, hurt/kill other minorities especially Muslim in Sri Lanka & burn their properties yet they remain free, untouched, living in luxury life as they are financed by the state. Shame! They are coward, uncultured, dumb, boastful and everything that's evil!

I am a Sri Lankan and have never heard anyone speaking so extreme hate speech so openly like the Bodu Bala sena. They have been a reason for hundreds of attacks on Muslim interests and inciting hatred on a daily basis. This organisation and it's supporters should be banned internationally, very urgently.

The extremist group after LTTE, which is promoting religious hatred and destroying religious harmony. They have a record of attacking minorities worship places and inciting general public to harm minorities. In the recent past they have attacked Muslims houses and killed innocent people with the support of police force and STF. It is evident and proved the the present government is supporting this terror organisation for political gains. The president, Mahinda rajapaksha has not taken any action against this group as it is backed by his beloved brother, Gotabaya Rajapaksha. The intention of this terror organisation is to protect the present government by hook or by crook to keep the government in power ahead. In the name of Buddhism
They have performed atrocities on Muslims and Christian minorities. The secretary of BBS leader Gnanasara seems to be a lunatic, changing topics according to situations. Necessary action must be taken against this group to sustain peace and harmony ...more

They suck big time, they are easily accepted among the majorities as majority of the Budhists are fools and illiterate! Sri Lanka is just after a 30 year war, they want another war in the country sending the county back to Stone Age, the reason is purely jealousy, greed, hate to see people from other faiths flourish in business, social lives and literacy etc etc, inefficiency to execute any anything proper that will bring about change towards goodness! Basically lazy bafoons who wants to come into politics by creating hatred amongst 70% majority Buddhist majority against 10% Muslim minority! Completely backed by Goverment of SL! Basically devise and rule strategy! They are stirring up lazy budhist youths to take arms, destroy Muslim houses and business, Rob, loot, steal them in public and private, destroy their peace, create chaos! And all these things they do it openly, they stage huge meetings with the help of the police and Forces! Stirring and Whining the audience at the meeting, ...more

13 Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan

The worst terrorists

There are peoples from raw India who want to finish Pakistan in Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan and want to finish Pakistan atomic power

Pakistani military and government have moral and financial support to these terrorist groups for their own purposes. Tehrik-i-Talban is made by Pakistani Military for terrorist activity in neighbor countries like Afghanistan, India, Kashmir even in their own country to take unfair advantages and makes their favorite government and rule the country as they want.

No doubt India is pumping their backs. But we are slowly getting rid from them.

They are rebels who help common people like us by exposing the government

Anonymous has always been a cyber terrorist organisation. Just because they are responsible for heroic acts like exposing government corruption, digital oppression and especially revealing dirty secrets from a some specific corporation, still means they torment the rest of the Internet both physically and digitally. I do not adhere them or accredit them because they are making the way we surf dangerous and risky.

17 Armenian Secret Army for the Liberation of Armenia (ASALA)

They are heroes

The Armenian Secret Army for the Liberation of Armenia (ASALA) was an Armenian Marxist-Leninis militant organization, that operated from 1975 to early 1990s. N It is considered a terrorist organization by some sources, other sources describe it as guerrilla and armed organization. 46 people were killed and 299 injured as a result of ASALA attacks and assassinations between 1975 to early 1990s

This armenian guy is a retard ASALA destroyed itself yet they never ever "brought turks on their knees" they only massacred 46 civilian and injured 299 of them they didn't even have an ass to fight against Turkish Army,Turkish police took care of them and they are gone forever

I love them and what they are doing

This is really the most forceful and the most cruel group ever. they fight for freedom of oromia region in Ethiopia. their fighting is against the dictatorship rule of Ethiopian government.

A freedom fighter not a terrorist.

OLF is fighting for the freedom of the largest ethnic group. The Oromos are under (the Amharas & Tigreans) colony for the past hundered years

22 Moro National Liberation Front

They are cowards..pretending to be a courageous warrior but used a civilian as their shield when the philippine forces arrived..they are one of the reason why the progress was so slow in mindanao

They were seeking independence from the Philippines led by Nur Misauri in mid-2013 but failed, the leader fled to the Philippines.

MNLF aren't extremists or Islamic militants, they are Moro nationalists who want to separate from the Philippines and create their own nationalistic country.


23 Sri Lanka Muslim Congress

The guys who voted are racists.

Know as one of the main islamic terrorist group in srilanka.They are destroying buddhist temples,ancient buddhist statues and spread islamic terrorism in srilanka.Goverment of saudi arabia and some muslim countries funding this terrorist group.

Communistic terrorists are parasites, and their communist ideology is a delusion.

These are communist groups in the Philippines, their goal is to destroy the Democracy in the Philippines and change it into communism. They lure in mountains and scare people


The group is widely known in plotting tribal wars, hatred among ethnic groups, labeling Journalists and opposition parties as a terrorist.

33 Irgun

Racist zionist terrorist scum. Along with Israhell.

Terrorist Fascist group supported by Hitler

Obviously history and real facts don't really count and people would rather comment based on their own ignorance. Jordon was the occupying force in Palestine, not Palestinians. The Irgun targeted British and yes they killed and yes they were freedom fighters / terrorists depending on your point of view.

Lets not forget the PLO (missing here) started attacking Israel in '64 three years before Israel routed and took over control of the West Bank form Jordan. That's 3 years before the Israeli 'occupation'!

But I guess facts and history don't count for anything here.

I have read about them and inspired by them. I think Tamil tigers have been inspired by them
