killed. If the attack had come from the
air, Israel wouldn't have lost anybody.
The number of civilian casualties suf-
fered by the Palestinians is less than in
any comparable war in history. Many
Palestinians have been killed, but by
other Palestinians and Jordanians.
The Jordanian government under
King Hussein killed 20,000 Palestinians
in one month. Israel, in its 55-year
fight against the Palestinians, has killed
a tiny fraction of that 20,000 number.
No country has ever been more sen-
sitive to civilian casualties, and yet
Israel is criticized more roundly by the
United Nations than anybody.

JN: What have been the most com-
mon questions you've had since writ-
ing this book and how have you
answered them?
AD:The question I get most suggests
that terrorism is caused by frustration
and disenfranchisement, and my
answer is absolutely not.
The Jews didn't engage in terrorism
against innocent civilians during the
Second World War, and can you imag-
ine any group more frustrated? The
Cambodians didn't. The Rwandans
didn't.
The root cause of terrorism is that it
works. It works successfully, and it con-
tinues when it I/Yorks. For example,
today's newspaper has a big story on how
the Basques in Spain have tried terrorism.
The Spanish government said, "We're
not letting you do it, and your party is
thrown out of Parliament; you've been
punished for using terrorism."
If the international community had
responded to the Palestinians the way
the Spanish government responded to
the Basques, there'd be no Palestinian
terrorism.

JN: Who do you associate with aiding
terrorism?
AD:I think the main culprits here are
the European community, the Vatican,
American liberal churches and some
university academics who have reward-
ed Arafat for his terrorism.
If Pope Pius XII was called Hitler's
pope, this pope is Arafat's pope. He
has embraced him seven times, more
than any other national leader. He is

constantly talking about moral equiva-
lents between murdering little babies
and Israel's and America's self defense.
Can you imagine this pope embrac-
ing an abortionist? He would never do
it. But Arafat he does. There's some-
thing immoral about that.

JN: What are some of your continu-
ing recommendations in the fight
against terrorism?
AD:I think the first thing we can do is
be very critical of the European coun-
tries, our churches and even in some
instances of our synagogues for being
too accepting.
During the time when many
American Jews had this flirtation with
Yasser Arafat — hugged him and
kissed him — I refused to participate.
Arafat's a murderer.
Although I have to represent mur-
derers as a lawyer, I don't have to hug
them. I think we ought to be very crit-
ical of the European response to ter-
rorism and very open about our
[response to] terrorism.

JN: Has the threat of terrorism had,
any effect on your. religious practices
or the way you go about your daily
routine?
AD:I have been advised by the author-
ities that I'm a potential target, and I
therefore have increased my own per-
sonal security.
When I speak, I have armed security
with me because I am 'a lightening
rod. I've been twice subjected to
potential terrorism.
I have changed my conduct to pro-
tect myself and my loved ones, but I
certainly would never stay away from a
synagogue for fear of terrorism. What
I would do is make sure that the syna-
gogue is adequately protected and

secured.
I think that's the job of the city and
the country, not the Jewish communi-
ty alone, and they've been doing a
pretty good job of it.
In fact, my son and I went to Russia
10 years ago when there was a threat
of an attack on a synagogue there. We
brought television cameras and the
media to help protect the Jews of
Russia against terrorism.
