How can terrorists be identified before they perpetrate destructive attacks? From the United States to the European Union, the question is being asked; how the techniques for the filing and analysis of  preventive  and anti-terrorist strategy information can be streamlined. In the meantime, the terrorist escapes control. The panorama is, in fact, so vast and many-sided that it is difficult to understand and know it in its complexity. However, to intervene with the “preventive” aim, as the American anti-terrorist philosophy maintains, raises many questions in Europe. There is a need to reflect upon the errors already committed, improve the methodologies of the utilization of the data and, above all, know better the potential terrorist, before he actually becomes one, when he is still “our” very normal next-door neighbour

Last Friday, July 14, a terrorist attack took place in the Old City of Jerusalem, just outside the Temple Mount complex. The place is particularly symbolic in the context of the Arab-Israeli conflict: Israel took the Old City during the Second Arab-Israeli War in 1967, but the annexation from the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan has never been internationally recognized, and in 2000 it became the stage of the Second Intifada uprisings. The complex hosts the Western Wall, that is sacred to Jews and the Dome of the Rock, where the Muslims believe the Prophet ascended to heaven
