(p.362) Chapter XXV What Israel can Teach the World and What Israel should Learn
A High Price

Daniel Byman

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the lessons that other countries can learn from Israel's experiences in fighting terrorism and political violence for more than sixty years, and vice versa. It first discusses the challenges involved in using deterrence as part of Israel's counterterrorism strategy before turning to claims that Israeli counterterrorism paradoxically promotes more terrorism. It then considers the importance of sanctuary to the success of a terrorist group, along with Israel's intelligence services. It also explains how legality and human rights have shaped counterterrorism policy, the importance of integrating counterterrorism with national security policy, and the lessons that Israel can draw from counterinsurgency in the fight against terrorism.

Keywords:   terrorism, political violence, deterrence, Israel, counterterrorism, sanctuary, intelligence services, human rights, national security policy, counterinsurgency
