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

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

2 ISIS

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

Following the recent attacks on Paris, it's no doubt that ISIS holds the most evil disgraces of human beings.

They're coming closer to you... Yes, closer. You may not be safe in your homes. They'll kick down the doors, they'll smash the windows, they'll chuck molotovs in there. Prepare yourself. You're not safe in the USA, the threat's getting bigger in Europe, maybe ISIS'll attack London next! They might bomb the Houses of Parliament! They might infiltrate the crowded streets! Hell, they might bomb those dams that have been protecting London from floods for so long! You're basically not safe anywhere, whether it's in a building, in a car or running outside, no one can save you from these bastards.

They are a bunch of idiots! I hope they all burn in hell one day

3 Taliban

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

Previously known as the mujahideen; the Taliban has become little more than another pathetic radical Islam group that will continue to oppress the nations it exists in until the west wipes them out. They're not worthy of recognition at all. The mujahideen were... But not the Taliban.

Bringing terror across south east Asia

Taliban is a most dengerious in the world

4 Irish Republican Army

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

The IRA are by far the greatest and most intelligent terrorist group in the 20th century who started off fighting against the evil British army who treated the people of Ireland cruelly. In later years the IRA fought on behalf of the poor Roman Catholics of Belfast who were being treated like animals by the loyalists and also fought to make Ireland once again a united nation by reigning terror on the loyalist streets of northern ireland.

IRA are greatly equipped and intelligent group who know a lot, FBI MI5 don't have a patch on what the IRA know that's why there so effective. The IRA stood up for people when no one else would. The black and tans destroyed communities family s and lives would you like to be shot or tared and feathered, of course your going to fight back wouldn't you. And why shouldn't we our country was invaded we just wanted it back. Of course innocent people are going to die and this is always the sad side of fighting but the IRA gave better than what we got and I'm happy they did. If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire the IRA."

IRA forever

6 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

Weren't strong enough as the Sri Lankan army.

These guys are not terrorists why are they on the list. They were just protecting their country and race...

7 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

The Ku Klux Klan is the name of three distinct past and present movements in the United States that have advocated extremist reactionary currents such as white supremacy, white nationalism, and anti-immigration, historically expressed through terrorism aimed at groups or individuals whom they opposed. All three movements have called for the "purification" of American society, and all are considered right wing extremist organizations. Founded by conservative democrats (back when the Democratic Party was conservative), these bigots with condoms on their heads used to be very powerful in the 1920s, but now have some chapters left but overall are just a group that has little followers and don't pose much of a threat, besides a few murders and bombings here and there.

Just the scale of what they did

Hamas is not a terrorist group, you fools! - GREYBOYY

They are some of the most well armed groups active today

GREYBOYY, you are wrong.

9 Boko Haram

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.

Violent Nigerian terrorist group of extremist Muslims, causing violence and instability in the region, going so far as to plunge the West African state of Nigeria into civil war.

And yet Nigeria has been so vulnerable to terrorism - paranoid_police66

Responsible for 2008 Mumbai Attacks and other numerous attacks in the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir.

Dangerous organisation which can spread jihad in south east Asia

This should be in the top 5. They've killed more people, attacked more people, and supported more terror attacks than a lot of groups in the top 10.

This Has to be in top 5

13 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

This is crazy. This is not a terrorist organization. Was shocked to see this under terrorist category.

14 Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan

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.

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

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

America is real terrorist.

They are not and the will never be terrorists. I can say that beacause I am Armenian and no Turkish, no Asian, no European, no Australian, no American can change that. There is and tgere will always be proof that the Armenians passed through the genocide. #102_years_of_genocide.

They are cold blooded

Iran funded terror organization

They are not terrorist lol... The author of thetopten is totally lunatic... I feel like laughing at this page...
Houthis are innocent peoples of Yemen living a very difficult life, They are poor but very loyal and hard worker... The mother of all terrorism is Saudi Arabia who attacked on innocent people of Yemen and demolish their homeland... Now a days Houthis stand against Saudi's Terrorist activity then you are saying Houthis are terrorist... Where were you die when Saudi's attacked and killed thousands of people including children? Destroy their homeland, destabilize their country...
Oh I forget Saudi's best friend America put Houthis in the list... There are three devils in the world

20 Sri Lanka Thawheed Jama'ath

Fake this is not a terrorist group fools. I feel sorry for the one who added this here. Consult a good doctor first.

This is not a terrerist group but became number one in blood donation in Sri Lanka

I agree with this explanation... Normally Shia Muslims is best peace loving Muslims and Wahhabi the worst.. I ask government to ban all Sunni radical groups,

Though they have not yet gone to an open armed activities, they are clearly showing signs of reaching there with their racist and bigoted movement.
They also recently had a mass movement to establish Shariah Law in the country.
Latest example is carrying out a lashing against a Muslim girl who was raped. Since she made a complaint to the Police, she was summoned to the Mosque and lashed with a cane.
They also have a pioneer movement to lift the law on child marriage and want the minimum age for women's marriage, 18 taken out and want the freedom to marry them as soon as they reach puberty. Even if it's a child.
Bottom line is, they are group of racist pedophiles

Kurdish racist group, They are killing people on roads without reason. They are killing you if you hold Turkish Id and bargaining drugs and weapons between Middle East and Europe. They are kidnapping the normal Kurdish families youngsters and brain washing against the Turkish government and capitalism but they are working for capitalism such a mindless move.

This is definitely must be in top 10, they are kills Turkey's soldiers - 05yusuf09

They are killing people more than 40.000 just in 20 years (1984-2014)

23 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.

THIS GUYS ARE MORONS OF MINDANAO! AND DUMB ASS!

24 Al-Nusra

Should be in top 10

This group is counted as a terrorist group, but they differ from other groups in the Middle East. They control a small part of Syria, but are no extremists like ISIS (Beheading, chopping hands off etc.) They are enemies of ISIS, YPG and FSA.

25 OLF

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.

I love them and what they are doing

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

26 Irgun

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

Worst terror group in whole Bangladesh who ironically runs the country. There is no such crime that so called student league hasn't done. They are by far the worst of the worst. Kills people in public with machetes and police won't even say anything because police is owned by Awami League.

AL and it's student wing BSL are the biggest terrorist. They have no sense of patriotism and only follows the orders of Indian Secret Agency RAW.
