The Hybrid Terrorist Organization and Incitement

21/11/2012 | by Ganor, Boaz (Prof.)  

Israel today faces complex, multidimensional warfare in which terrorists and their supporters have identified the weaknesses of democracy and learned to misuse democratic terms, slogans, and apparatues to gain power and legitimacy. The hybrid terrorist organization, born of the changing dynamics of terrorism, strives to gain this legitimacy even as it struggle to deprive its enemies of the same legitimacy by whatever means it can - through incitement, indoctrination, propaganda - and thereby flip the asymmetrical balance of power on its head, and gain the upper hand.
