BEIJING - A list of terrorists and their organizations will be published and their assets in the country will be frozen, said a draft decision made by the State Council, marking a step forward on the nation's effort to crack down on terrorism.

According to the draft, terrorist activity refers to behavior aimed at generating social panic, intimidating State agencies or international organizations, and that has caused or intended to result in casualties, major economic loss, damage to public facilities or social disorder through violence, destruction, threats or other means.

Meanwhile, stirring up, funding or assisting these activities are also considered terrorist activities.

It defines an individual terrorist as a person who organizes, masterminds or carries out such activities and those who participate in a terrorist organization.

The draft has been submitted for review to the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress (NPC), the country's top legislature.

"The lack of a clear definition of terrorist activities, terrorist organizations and their participants has directly hindered the work of cracking down on terrorist activities and the control of the involved assets," Yang Huanning, vice-minister of public security, told a bimonthly meeting of the NPC Standing Committee, which opened on Monday.

Hafez el-Assad for exemple is a well known mass-murderer. Is he a terrorist? Yes, because he want to destroy Israel! (Assad pretends he is the only God!)Would Assad hurt less-tens of thousands if his assets where seized?
