    The Terrorist incidents suddenly and highly increase after the Arab-Spring. In this paper, we are trying to uncover the relationship between the Arab Spring and terrorism, by looking at the circumstances produced by the Arab Spring upheavals. We will investigate this relation through a panel data analysis during the period 2002-2013 for 161 countries. We assume that the experience of State Failure in any country can make it more vulnerable to terrorism, if they occurred with the presence of Oil wealth. We assume that the more the State is failure and the more it has oil wealth, the more it will be vulnerable to terrorism attacks.
