Resistance is, arguably, one of the major tenets of critical scholarship. Since Foucault, it has become something of a common place to constantly remember that “where there is power, there is always resistance” (Fontana and Bretani 2003, 280). Resistance, this somehow vague and ill-defined concept, plays a fundamental role in countering the violent effects of both western modes of knowledge and western forms of domination/ exploitation. Hence, critical academics constantly remind us of the ongoing imperative to resist: wherever and whenever “power relations” impose “modes of violence”, we shall foster “micro-political modes of resistance”. Ironically, one could say that resistance has become, to a certain extent, the uncritically accepted imperative of critical theory, as such. In critical terrorism studies (CTS), this imperative to resist emerged with a particular problem: International Politics’ obliviousness towards state terrorism.
