Abstract:

The brutal assaults at the Rome and Vienna airports--like the hijackings of a TWA aircraft in June, an Italian cruise in October and an Egypt Air plane in November--again demonstrate anew how terrorists unscrupuously use the lives of Americans and other foreign nationals to advance their own parochial goals. Indeed, the latest incidents, in which five Americans were among the 19 killed, were carried out less to harm Israel the ostensible target of the terrorists than to discredit Palestinian leader Yasir Arafat.
