Anna Geifman ("Finding Who Is Responsible When No Group Takes Credit," Opinion, July 28) surprisingly misses the mark in her search as to why terrorists have been reluctant to take credit for the TWA Flight 800 explosion, the detonation of the U.S. military housing in Saudi Arabia and explosions in the Moscow mass-transit system. After driving home the point that modern terrorism began with Russian extremist socialists who orchestrated the Bolshevik Revolution and infected latter-day counterparts, she fails to make the obvious connection between the lapse of the Soviet Union and the silence of the most recent perpetrators of terrorism.

Despite all the talk about terrorism in connection with the crash of TWA Flight 800, no credible group has come forward to claim responsibility for the air disaster. This is in marked contrast to all previous patterns of terrorist behavior--when extremist groups rushed to attest their responsibility forpolitical assassinations and bombings, avidly competing for high scores of violent attempts, regardless of their success.

OPINION
September 1, 1996 | Richard B. Straus, Richard B. Strauss is editor of the Middle East Policy Survey
From the Alfred P. Murrah Building in Oklahoma City to U.S. army housing in Saudi Arabia, and perhaps even to TWA Flight 800 over the skies of New York, the United States is becoming a key target of terrorism, with acts of greater frequency and ever more deadly effect. While this is a relatively new phenomenon for Americans, it is something the people of Israel have grappled with for close to a half century.
