Argues that terrorists should be generally analogized to pirates and governed by criminal law, and only exceptionally should terrorists be seen as insurgents participating in armed conflict and subject to the law of war. Critiques the relevant Israeli Supreme Court decision. Argues that the war on terror metaphor has failed, costing hundreds of thousands of lives and trillions of dollars.
