Terroristic activity consists in destroying the most harmful persons in the government, in defending the party against espionage, in punishing the perpetrators of notable cases of violence and arbitrariness on the part of the government and the administration, and it aims to undermine the prestige of the government’s power, to demonstrate the possibility of struggle against the government, to arouse in this manner the revolutionary spirit of the people and their confidence in the success of the cause, and finally, to give shape and direction to the forces that are fit and trained to carry on the struggle. (Schmid and de Graaf, 1982)
