By Micah HalpernI've Been Thinking:
Yesterday's lead editorial in The New York Times condemned the terror in Manchester.
The conclusion they came to is that worldwide unity needs to be the main strategy for confronting terror.
Quoting the editorial: "That spirit should bring together all citizens, all countries, who---whatever their faith or birthplace---grieve for the innocents cut down Monday night in Manchester."
This is a valiant idea. Uniting those around the world who condemn attacks and mourn victims is a major step.
But there's a problem. What about those who celebrate the deaths. What do you do about the serious percentage of the population who applaud acts of terror.
Until we come up with a real plan to confront the threat of terror, terror will continue for years to come.
