|Summary||Mr. Netanyahu's brother, Jonathan, had been killed in the Entebbe raid to rescue hostages held by Idi Amin. M. Kemoularia's government service goes back to a stint as Interior Minister immediately after the Liberation; as UN Ambassador he had recently joined the British Ambassador in vetoing a censure motion against the United States for our raid on Libya, which some people called a terrorist act. What is terrorism? Can we accept Mr. Netanyahu's definition--"the systematic and deliberate attack, the murdering, maiming, and menacing of innocents, civilians, for political goals"--which has the effect of exonerating the people who fought for Israeli independence of terrorism, since their targets were British military and administrators? A fascinating look at a crucial problem, even if the participants are by no means disinterested.|
