Contemporary Islamic religious fanaticism and terrorism is increasing in spite of the opposition of the international community and the measures taken to combat trafficking. In today’s highly complex and in many ways a specific stage of development of society, there was a typical terrorist formation - the Islamic state, which has seen such a rise that has become the strongest, largest and richest terrorist organization in the world. Because of its ideology and goals, brutality and violence that implements, it generates a huge threat to regional and global security generally speaking. Until a decade ago, this kind of epilogue to the expansion of Islamic extremism and terrorism was virtually unthinkable. That is why the title of this paper is trying to suggest to all the controversy and intricacy of global Islamist trends, linking radical fundamentalism, the state in which the dominating Muslim population and the Islamic religion, and terrorism is above all a product of the strengthening of radical Islamic teachings—wahhabism.

Keywords: terrorism, terrorist organisations, Islamic countries, Islamic fundamentalism
