ABSTRACT
Chapter 5 of the book "Philosophical Perspectives on the War on Terrorism" is presented. The author explores the conditions that breed terrorism, including poverty. He rejects the argument that the fight against terrorism should take these conditions into consideration. He argues that poverty alone does not make someone turn to terrorism, but also lack of recognition and explains the recognition theory. Agreeing that a violent response to terror should only be a second or last resort, he holds that the only antidote for Islamic fascism is democracy.
