Fighting Terrorism [Hardcover] (Reprinted after September 11, 2001)
How Democracies Can Defeat Domestic and International Terrorists

The Oklahoma bombing, the sarin-gas attack in Japan, the World Trade Center tragedy raise grave questions: Where did this rising tide of terror come from? Is it here to stay? How can this new terrorism be stamped out? In Fighting Terrorism, Benjamin Netanyahu, the leader of Israel's Likud Party and a noted authority on international terrorism, offers a compelling approach to understanding terrorism. Citing diverse examples from Germany, France, Italy, and elsewhere, Netanyahu demonstrates that domestic terrorist groups are usually no match for an advanced technological society, which can successfully control terror without any significant curtailment of civil liberties. But Netanyahu sees an even more potent threat from the new international The Oklahoma bombing, the sarin-gas attack in Japan, the World Trade Center tragedy raise grave questions: Where did this rising tide of terror come from? Is it here to stay? How can this new terrorism be stamped out? In Fighting Terrorism, Benjamin Netanyahu, the leader of Israel's Likud Party and a noted authority on international terrorism, offers a compelling approach to understanding terrorism. Citing diverse examples from Germany, France, Italy, and elsewhere, Netanyahu demonstrates that domestic terrorist groups are usually no match for an advanced technological society, which can successfully control terror without any significant curtailment of civil liberties. But Netanyahu sees an even more potent threat from the new international terrorism that has emerged in the 1990's. From Beirut to Buenos Aires to Manhattan, it is increasingly the product of Islamic militants, who draw their inspiration and directives from Iran and its growing cadre of satellite states. The spread of fundamentalist Islamic terrorism, coupled with the possibility that Iran will soon acquire nuclear weapons, poses a more frightening threat from an adversary less rational and therefore less controllable than was Soviet Communism. How the democracies can defend themselves against this new threat concludes this innovative and concise new work. As part of a program to help fight domestic and international terrorism in the 1990's, Netanyahu advocates the following: Imposing sanctions on supplies of nuclear technology to terrorist states, imposing diplomatic, economic, and military sanctions on the terrorist states themselves, freezing the financial assets held in the Western countries of terrorist regimes and organizations, easing warrant requirements in cases involving suspected terrorists, tightening immigration laws coupled with the threat of deportation, surveillance of groups preaching the violent overthrow of the government, restricting gun ownership and educating the public in counterterrorism. Powerfully argued and pragmatic in its approach, Fighting Terrorism is an incisive work of political analysis that's shows us what can be done to eradicate the threat of terrorism to free societies around the world.
