Israeli society, for instance, “basically became accustomed to terrorism and adapted accordingly,” said political science professor Dov Waxman in the 2011 article Living with terror, not living in terror: The impact of chronic terrorism on Israeli society.
“Social resilience prevents terrorism from seriously disrupting the normal functioning of a society,” Waxman, now at Northeastern University, wrote. “It means that a targeted population is able to cope with the threat of terrorism and not be intimidated or demoralized by it.”
