International terrorism from groups such as the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) and Al Qaida present a threat from many others. They hold territory in places without functioning governments, making it easier for them to train recruits and plan complex, sophisticated attacks. Drawing on extreme interpretations of Islam to justify their actions, these groups often have the desire and capability to direct terrorist attacks against the West, and to inspire those already living there to carry out attacks of their own.
From the Glossary:
Terrorist financing = The provision or collection of funds, by any means, directly or indirectly, with the intention or knowledge that they are to be used, in full or in part, in a terrorism plot.
