Recent media reports covered a terrorist plot to shoot a passenger airplane that the Australian anti-terrorism police discovered. Those involved in the scheme are of Middle Eastern origins and they receive instructions from people in Syria. These elements have ties with active terrorist organizations in Syria, which are a threat to global security and stability.

 The four parties to the plot have no criminal records or links to terrorist organizations. This poses enormous challenges to the security services and shows lone wolves attacks are hard to predict. Another source of danger is the sympathizers and the radicalized. Affected by certain social factors, they may be up carrying terrorist attacks.

 The Australian authorities described the plan as highly sophisticated. Some Media leaks suggest dropping the plane was planned to take place after poisoning passengers with gas using. A simple, non-conventional machine would emit the poisonous gas potentially killing or paralyzing all passengers on board.

 According to several Australian and British newspaper reports, the entire plan was complex and unclear to the Australian investigative authorities. Few more steps were supposed to circumvent special airport security procedures.

 This evil design compares to others including hiding bomb pieces in shoe heels or underwear.

 Strategies of circumventing airport security have emerged strongly in the last two decades. In 2006, British police uncovered a terrorist plan to use liquids in aircraft bombings. Terrorists intended to carry the liquid in water bottles and then mix it during the flight to cause the aircraft to explode. This prompted the security authorities to regulate how passengers can carry liquids aboard. Researchers are now developing technology for checking liquids at airports.

 This particular terrorist plan reveals the fierce competition between terrorists and security authorities. More international cooperation is needed to combat terrorism's new and improved techniques. Terrorism is globalized. In the era of the Internet and the social media, Syria is no longer far from Sydney, said the Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull. Smooth cooperation is the critical factor in this situation, he added.

 Day after day, the terrorist crime gets more complex and dangerous. The suicide bomber in Manchester in June learned on the Internet how to make bombs. On YouTube anyone can access this kind of tutorials.

 A random search on the Internet about making bombs can turn into a new terrorist act somewhere. A click on the computer button leads to headlines such as "how to make a bomb". Series of how-to videos show how to make a makeshift bomb or grenade. Some Internet encyclopaedias deal with making bombs. You might be surprised by hundreds of headlines about secret techniques in making cheap DIY bombs and explosive belts of all kinds.

 Information accessibility helps explain the spread of terrorism and bombings. The topic is so widespread that some television programs made a joke out of it, about an explosive belt to recognize the reaction of the public and bring fake laughs.

 It is difficult for the world to stake on on the progress and development of preventive measures against terrorist acts. A radical solution is to unite all efforts to eradicate both religious and ideological root causes of radicalisation. Injustice, occupation and arbitrary practices that terrorists use as pretexts should be addressed. Also, we need to make serious global efforts to promote coexistence, tolerance and openness and challenge the rhetoric of hatred, extremism and aggression.
