TERROR

The slender chain of trust upon which all human relations are based is broken — and this the terrorist knows and sharpens his claws precisely here; for his primary objective is not battle. It is to bring down upon the community in general a reprisal for his wrongs, in the hope that the fury and resentment roused by punishment meted out to the innocent will gradually swell the ranks of those from whom he will draw further recruits………. Durrel , Lawrence. ‘Bitter Lemons of Cyprus, (London 1957).
