Publisher's Summary

The World Trade Center tragedy, the Oklahoma bombing, the sarin-gas attack in Japan, 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 this newly revised edition of 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 recently. From Beirut to Buenos Aires to Manhattan, it is increasingly the product of Islam 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 the Soviet Union. How democracies can defend themselves against this new threat concludes this innovative and concise work.

Excellent Perspective

Great perspective from a country leader who is used to terrorism on a daily basis. Listen with the thought that it's his point of view with documented facts, and you'll enjoy it whether you agree or disagree.

Great Book

Benjamin Netanyahu gives a lot of history. His insights and ideas are intelligent. Whenever we start to feel beat down by terrorism we should remember his lessons contained in this book.

Fascinating & Relevant

While I don’t agree with all of Mr. Netanyahu’s assertions. This audio book will cause you to look at the Arabs living in Israel (particularly the West Bank and Gaza) in a different light. If even a fraction of his statements are true then the so-called Palestinian cause is much more sinister then the media would have you believe. This work is very applicable to the situations now facing the United States.

Well written from the author's perspective.

Obviously, the author has the credentials to speak on this issue, and he conveys his perspective very well. The first 3/4 of the book are very well written and provide a very good insight into terrorism. However, the last 1/4 of the book becomes very biased, as could be expected.

Israel the cup of trembling

Benjamin Netanyahu is a man to be listened too. He lives, breathes, and spilled blood for his land of Israel. The hatred that the Jews live with each day is quickly and purposely not report due to the fact that the Jew is God JEHOVAH's chosen people. In all the nations of people to live on earth NEVER has a group of people been more hated, murdered, accused,and vilely treated than the children of Israel. WHY because they are JEWS !! Mr. Netanyahu tells the truth and does not try to soften it. TERRORISM is here to the end and we must heed the call of Mr. Netanyahu to stop terrorism in it's tracks, for the day as arrived ( 9/11 ) when the waters that divide us from the middle east conflict are no longer able to protect us.
If the murderers of the Jews the Arabs are so positive about their beliefs, why is it that the hate filled leaders are never the ones to want to be the first to strap the bomb on and blown their hateful hearts to meet the 70 virgins, I wonder why, hhuuummm ! Simply they do not believe what they preach period!!! As a born again child of God my God took all the Punishment and He did all the dieing for me - this is directly opposite to the way of the muslim.
I have always amired Mr. Benjamin Netanyahu as a man who tells it like it is, who in this book tells us the truth, shows in great detail that the muslims true agenda is to wipe Israel off the map, we are faced with the same problem also!!
Thank-you Mr.Netanyahu for your book and for your love of your country Israel. I cannot recommend this book enough, it is completely opposite to what we see on our TV's.History has shown that the precious Jew is protected and all who hate and revile one single Jew will answer to the Lord God of Israel.
