Violence in the Name of the Messiah

Israel is challenged by a theology that sanctions revenge against Palestinians.

"The most effective long-term fix is to prove to terrorists who believe they’re at the point of redemption that they aren’t. The only way Islamic State will be defeated is by proving that it isn’t a sovereign caliphate. The only way the partisans of the king messiah will be defeated is to show them that they cannot assert sovereignty through their use of unsanctioned force against innocent people and Palestinian mosques and property. This means arresting the terrorists and dismantling their networks and their physical infrastructure — the same treatment appropriate for terrorists of any ideology or background."
