Title:Globalization, Terrorism and Regional Conflicts: the Case of Palestine
Author(s):Nassar, Jamal
Middle East Relations
State-sponsored terrorism
Abstract:We know that the official attitude toward terrorism suffers from a suspension of any inquiry into causation. Government officials seldom ask what causes terror, or question their own participation in terrorist acts. Somehow, one gets the feeling that there is no connection between terrorism and its root causes. This chapter will challenge that sentiment and provide an example of causation. Perpetrators of terror are not simply born with some terrorist disease. Instead, specific conditions drive them into it. It is appropriate now to take a look at a prominent case where violence is a reaction to such circumstances.
