The Bible on Terrorism?
Does the Bible address the question of terrorism? I found interesting the recent column on this question by Newsweek's Rabbi Marc Gellman. What he says is sure to be misunderstood by many readers, but I think he gives a compelling exposition unpacking how Deut 25:17-19 helps us get our heads around some basic dynamics involved in terrorism. See: Remember Amalek.
One area that Gellman does not address is the complex mindset involved in terrorism. For a timeless religious perspective on the psychological and spiritual dimensions there, one should read Dostoevsky's The Possessed.
Comments on any of this are welcome.
