Chapter Summary

The most important result of the analysis is that the reaction of the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange to assassinations depends on the seniority and wing membership of the target. The market does not react to assassinations of low ranked members of Palestinian terrorist organizations. The market does react strongly, however, to the assassinations of senior leaders of terrorist organizations: it declines assassinations targeting senior political leaders but rises assassinations of senior military leaders. This implies that the market perceives the first type of assassinations as counterproductive but the second as an effective counterterrorism policy. This econometric approach targeted assassinations is the result of a report by the Bank of Israel in 2005 and is one of the angles used to judge the merits of Israel's anti-terrorist policy restarted at a very precise moment of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict: the outbreak in September 2000 the second intifada.
