Terror and violent extremism are a threat we cannot ignore. Unfortunately, for Israelis it is part of our daily reality. Over the past two weeks, my country is facing a relentless and brutal campaign of terror, including car bombs, stabbings and stonings.

We must agree on a clear definition of terrorism that includes all forms and manifestations of terror. Any failure to do so would compromise our ability to combat terrorism effectively and send a victory message to terror organizations throughout the world.
