The article provides an analysis of the crisis of making human rights absolute and terrorism. Essential freedoms, however, must be available to everyone. Every individual must be prepared to give up some rights for the sake of his (her) community. The increasing understanding of humanness maintains certain moral authority between great cultural differences, and this imparts rationality to human rights as useful transnational norms and rational standards of global behavior. The limits of protection of human rights are defined by rights of another person, and need for welfare by all members of society. The necessity to limit human rights stems from the fact that a concrete person is not only holder of rights but also the offender of another person’s rights. Human rights and nation rights should be developed not to be opposite. Nation rights ought not to ignore human rights. However, in some cases separate nations tend to make their right absolute, separating them from the free realization of human rights. Such a separation tumbles aggression. It is reflected in states pursuing fight against terrorism. Human rights and security policies can complement and even strengthen each other. They share the objective of achieving peaceful and stable domestic and international environments. The rule of law and respect for human rights are preconditions for security. A lack of respect for minority and human rights ultimately means tensions within society, or across borders, and borders, and thus potential for violent conflict. If a civilized society wants to remain civilized, it has no alternative but to try and uphold the rule of law and other general human rights principles, even in times of public emergency. People must be able to distinguish between civilized societies and terrorist movements, for whom the lives of innocent human beings are of no significant value. Democracy, the rule of law and respect for human rights themselves are potent weapons in the fight against terrorism.
