Concern regading the DAG 4's insertion of the term "terrorism"

In reference to DAG 4, section 1.2.1, "Eligibility," and 2.1,

"Background Check," I am personally very deeply concerned regarding

the DAG 4's insertion of the term "terrorism" so arbitrarily as part

of the background check on applicants and without providing any

definition or criteria that would be measured against approving or

denying an applicant for a new gTLD or IDN gTLD.


My concerns are that background checks in this area of terrorism, as

it is presented in the DAG 4, without any definition, is unacceptable

to many people, language communities, and faith communities around the



While the international community is extensibly divided on who is a

terrorist and who is a freedom fighter, and notwithstanding ICANN's

lack of definition whatsoever in the DAG 4 on terrorism, it is a

surprise to me to see ICANN involving itself in the area of terrorism

while its mandate is only being a global technical coordinator.




Thank you very much.
