When I say that terrorism is war against civilization, I may be met by the objection that terrorists are often idealists pursuing worthy ultimate aims -- national or regional independence, and so forth. I do not accept this argument. I cannot agree that a terrorist can ever be an idealist, or that the objects sought can ever justify terrorism. The impact of terrorism, not merely on individual nations, but on humanity as a whole, is intrinsically evil, necessarily evil and wholly evil.

BENJAMIN NETANYAHU, International Terrorism

Civilians, then, are the key to the terrorists strategy. They kill civilians, and more often than not, they hide behind them--hoping that the prospect of more innocent deaths will help them escape retribution.

BENJAMIN NETANYAHU, Terrorism: How the West Can Win

What distinguishes terrorism is the willful and calculated choice of innocents as targets.

BENJAMIN NETANYAHU, Terrorism: How the West Can Win

Nuclear know-how without nuclear infrastructure doesn't get you very much. A racecar driver without a car can't drive. A pilot without a plan can't fly.

BENJAMIN NETANYAHU, address to a joint meeting of the United States Congress, Washington, D.C., March 3, 2015

Terrorism is carried out purposefully, in a cold-blooded, calculated fashion. The declared goals of the terrorist may change from place to place. He supposedly fights to remedy wrongs -- social, religious, national, racial. But for all these problems his only solution is the demolition of the whole structure of society. No partial solution, not even the total redressing of the grievance he complains of, will satisfy him -- until our social system is destroyed or delivered into his hands.
