This study investigates the reasons that might trigger terrorism. Inequality and lack of social order lead to a state of hostility, violence, and terrorism. Anomie takes the place of social order .That is anomie occurs usually after an abrupt social, economic or political change within a community. Another reason is that loosening of the bonds between common moralities is the root source of social disorder (Durkheim). Both social disorder and anomie result from individuals motivated to live up to the cultural values of success. While inequality within the state bars some cultures and increases the differences between the groups, inequality between the states as an external force increases the strain within the state. In a situation like this it is hard to maintain the social order and equality which forms as a sense of inequity in the hearts of individuals. This in turn creates frustration and aggression in the society. Individuals who identify themselves as part of these subcultures see these threats as a threat to their personal identity and to the meaning of their life. Inequalities in the society initiate the antagonistic ideologies which find their ground in these deviant subcultures.
