With large questions of right and wrong, there is a division of labour. So, with the attack on three subway trains and a bus in London on July 7, 2005. Of what moral relevance, if any, was the fact that the British army had been engaged in the killing of greatly more of a people with whom the terrorists identified? 'Of what relevance, as a newspaper article asked a week later, was the fact that the British prime minister put his own people at risk in the service of a foreign power?' So begins Ted Honderich's intelligent and thoughtful analysis in "Humanity, Terrorism, Terrorist War". What Honderich says has caused a great deal of controversy (his last book on this subject was initially banned in Germany on the grounds it was anti-Semitic, only to be republished by a Jewish press). However, his views are also acceptable to a great many Jews as he puts forward arguments to justify the founding of Israel and its secure perpetual existence. Looking in detail at the situation in Palestine, 9/11, the war in Iraq and the events of 7/7, Ted Honderich offers neither a sensationalist rant nor an academic treatise. Instead "Humanity, Terrorism, Terrorist War" provides a thoughtful and perceptive exploration of the biggest issue facing the western world today.
