1978 - Former Italian Prime Minister Aldo Moro is kidnapped in Rome by a unit of the Red Brigades
In Al-Watan newspaper, Khaled Montasser wrote that besides the military and police efforts in tracing terrorism and attempting to cut its supplies of weapons, civil state institutions still have a role to play to cut extremist ideologies from curricula, books, and other governmental and religious platforms, which in his opinion are the reason "Islamists' terrorism" continues to spread despite security controls, unlike other groups in Europe such as Baader Meinhoff in Germny or the Red Brigades
in Italy, which according to the writer, did not find support through platforms for brainwashing worshippers or raising children on hatred.

The same approach ended the terrorist campaigns in Italy (the Red Brigades
), Canada (the Quebec Liberation Front), Japan (the Japanese Red Army) and the US (the Weathermen).
While the rest of Italy is dealing with the most historically astonishing domestic terrorist attack on the state enacted by the Red Brigades
(the kidnapping and subsequent murder of renowned politician Aldo Moro, in 1978), three eleven-year-old Sicilian students enamored with rhetoric and language (they invent an alphabet made up of foolish body signs, named "alphamute") find themselves at odds with their surroundings and feel the urgency to take action.
Andreotti was blamed for refusing to negotiate for his political rival Aldo Moro's freedom, when the latter was kidnapped -- and later murdered -- by the Red Brigades
hang on in islands such as Anglesey in Wales and Brownsea in Dorset, as well as woody fringes in Scotland and northern England.

In a note following a December 1981 briefing by US Embassy and State Department officials, the Government was told: "Since 1978 Gaddafi has turned away somewhat from his previous support of terrorist groups but contact with the PIRA and the Red Brigades
and others continues."
