No Such Thing as a "Lone-Wolf" Terrorist

(Israel Hayom) Nitsana Darshan-Leitner - Last week, the federal court of appeals in Washington, D.C., ruled there was no such thing as a "lone-wolf terrorist" - and that behind every act of terrorism were guiding hands that recruited the terrorists, incited them to perpetrate their act, guided them and embraced them after their attacks. Those guiding hands belong to Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad, along with Iran and Syria who support them. The court placed responsibility for the terrorist attacks on these elements. Hamas and PIJ use social media as a tool to instruct followers to carry out attacks on Israeli targets. These murderous acts, therefore, are anything but spontaneous. The wolf is not alone, and an entire pack of wolves stands behind him. The writer is the founder of Shurat Hadin Israeli Law Center.
