In order for the fight against terrorism to be as effective as possible we have to act while respecting our values and our rules.
Let us avoid zones where there are no rights, let us reject anything that can give rise to arbitrariness, whether this means military interventions without the international community's authorization, exceptional tribunals, or detention centers outside the framework of international law.
The greatest determination in the face of terrorism, yes, but always while respecting the rule of law.
