A proto-state is a political entity which does not represent a thoroughly institutionalized or autonomous sovereign state. A proto-state is also known as a quasi-state. It is a term which meaning fluctuates depending upon the context it is used.
The definition has been confused by the interchangeable use of the terms state, country and nation to describe a given territory. The term proto-state is preferred to "pro-nation." In an academic context, however, since some authorities also use the nation to denote a social, ethnic, or cultural group capable of forming its state.
No. Al-Qaeda and Isis do not like each other. Isis is by a product of the Al Queda in Iraq which was led by al-Zarqawi before he was killed in a US airstrike. Much of the rivalry between the two involves a competition for affiliates, while both trying to spread their model and in Al Queda’s case to ensure it’s operational relevance.
The dispute between the Islamic State and Al-Queda is more than just a power struggle, it is a movement. The two organizations differ on the main enemies, strategies, schemes, and other core worries. As an outcome, the threat they pose to the United States varies as well. The Islamic State is far more successful in achieving its goals than Al Queda has been.
Hezbollah’s paramilitary wing is the Jihad Council. It operates in Lebanon. Its political wing is Loyalty to the Resistance Bloc Party in the Lebanese parliament. Muslim clerics conceived Hezbollah and funded by Iran primarily to harass the Israeli occupation.
It is a Shi’a Islamist political party and militant group based in Lebanon. It was formed of various radical Shiite groups.

The Central Intelligence Agency is a civilian foreign intelligence service of the United States federal government. Harry Truman created it in 1947. Their directive was to collect information about external threats that could be used to defend the USA. It is tasked with gathering, processing, and analyzing national security information from around the world. Unlike the FBI, which is a domestic security service, the CIA has no law enforcement function and is focused on overseas intelligence gathering, with only limited local intelligence collection. It collects information on individuals, corporations, and foreign governments.
The CIA had abandoned their original purpose to begin interference and intervention in the affairs of other nations. The result was crimes which included assassinations and political coups that disposed of democratically elected governments. They use deception, wire taps, money to buy information and if that does not work they will find something to blackmail you and will go to any lengths to get what they need. They will break the law and they will offer to relocate people and their families to get information.They will get what they need by any means including blackmail, assasination, out and out lying disregarding local country laws. They have been known to use drugs, sex and threats to get the infomation they need.
We often celebrate the French Resistance, praising those who had the courage to stand-up against those who occupied them. It is no different for Iraqi resistors. They want to reclaim the country as their own. Resistance and terrorism are different.
Terrorism consists of acts carried out in a dramatic way to attract publicity and create an atmosphere of fear. The distinction between actual victims and a target audience is the hallmark of terrorism. Terrorism is a theater where resistance is not. It may perpetrate violence the same way that our military does. It fights for what it believes is the good of it's country. Terrorists are insurgents. Resistors more so take a hard stand.
I do not think a terrorist can do any good. Terrorist is a person, group, or organization that uses violent action, or the threat of violent action, to further political goals.
They use deliberate act of violence to create an emotional response through the suffering of the victims in the furtherance of a political or social agenda.
They also make use of psychological manipulation through warfare to the purpose of political or religious gains, by means of deliberately creating a climate of fear amongst the inhabitants of a specific geographical region. There is no good in all of these.
There are 100 to 170 officially designated terrorist organizations throughout the world. A few examples of this include Al-Shahaab, Muslim Brotherhood, Irish National Liberation Army, and Islamic Jihad. Many organizations deny using terrorism as a military tactic to achieve their objectives, and there is no international agreement on the legal definition of terrorism.
Some organizations have multiple wings or components, one or more of which may be designated as a terrorist while others are not. The actual definition of a terrorist organization is a political movement that uses terror as a weapon to achieve its goals.
