ABSTRACT
Chapter 15 of the book "Philosophical Perspectives on the "War on Terrorism"" is presented. It focuses on Israel's justification of military violence. The author examines Israel's policy of applying military measures as a deterrent against future Palestinian terrorist attacks. Citing research findings, he argues that these measures will not deter but rather increase the likelihood of future violence. He concludes that such policy is not justified because it has the opposite effect and that directly addressing the needs of the people is more effective.
