Fighting the War on Terror

After the horrific attack in Orlando this weekend, many are voicing their fears and frustrations. That is natural, writes Times of Israel founding editor David Horovitz, but to defeat the terrorists' death cult, we must get serious and focus on the task at hand:

But wouldn’t it be smarter — and wouldn’t it be better for our prospects of staying alive — if we expended rather more serious thought, and budget, on the practical task of stopping the death cult extremists?

Specifically, that means a great deal more focus on each of three key areas: defending more effectively against the killers; taking the battle to them where necessary and feasible; and preventing the creation of the next waves.

Israel, though manifestly imperfect, has much to teach the world about defending against terrorism...

Israel has learned, bloodily, a great deal about keeping terrorists at bay, and when politicians around the Western world wailed, in the wake of last November’s terrorist onslaught in Paris, that they simply could not deploy security guards at every concert arena, soccer stadium, restaurant, etc., we Israelis said to ourselves, Well, actually, you can. And, tragically, you may have to.

Get serious about defensive action, allocate the necessary resources, and you self-evidently raise your prospects of thwarting the killers...
