The Law says:
The use of the word terror is not accidental in direct quotations from Al-Qaeda and other Muslim groups.

Extract:Al-Qaeda called on Islamists to sow terror in the West to create a climate of fear, in a third video marking the September 11, 2001 attacks on the US, which was posted on the internet today. Called "reasons and motives for the attacks on New York and Washington," the video features a montage of images of the burning World Trade Centre towers and scenes from Islamist training camps. "We must take Islamist terrorism to Western countries so that it becomes a normal part of life like natural disasters," a voiceover says. "In that way, we will have acts of mass extermination in which people will feel that their affluence also brings death...and we will have created a balance of deterrence between us and them," the unidentified voice adds. The new video also includes clips from old voice recordings of al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden and his Egyptian deputy Ayman al-Zawahiri, as well as a short video clip of Mustafa Abu Al-Yazid, also known as Sheikh Said, the group's commander in Afghanistan.
