The criminal situation in the world proves the necessity of developing effective mechanisms to manage extremism and terrorism. This is an urgent issue not only for the Russian government but also for the whole world. Recent assassinations that claimed hundreds and thousands of human lives in the USA, Spain, Great Britain, Israel and many other countries have displayed a global scale of the acts of terror. To fight against all kinds of extremism and terrorism successfully one should investigate these phenomena profoundly including the analysis of the foreign experience. In a number of cases the latter helps determine the main trends to manage the situation in Russia. The realization of the anti-terrorist national program mainly depends on the Dutch police. The police services summarize and analyze the data coming from the head-quarters of Europol (European Police Office) that comprises a terrorism investigation department. Another significant aspect of anti-terrorist activities of the police is blocking terrorism finance sources. Due to recent social study the measures that the government in the Netherlands has undertaken the situation has been improving. The population living within Somalian, Afghan, Iraqui, Chechen and other Muslim diaspores show less aggression towards the titular ethnicity, their response to instigating slogans is less acute. The instigators including MPs speak abusively of The Koran, prophet Muhammed, other values of Islam. The activities of the police in the fight against extremism has been more highly appreciated. Thus, about 90% of the Dutch approve of extending the range of activities of the police in their antiterrorism combat.
