Political correctness "kills the truth" and is hurting efforts in the West to fight ISIS, counter-terrorism expert and Israeli politician Anat Berko tells Newsmax TV.

In an interview Friday with "Hard Line" host Ed Berliner, the Israeli parliament member and head of the Subcommittee for Intelligence & Secret Services declares, "if you cannot define your enemy, you have a problem.

"If you want to be politically correct and nice, it's not the way, how we fight terrorism and terrorism is everywhere right now," she said, adding being political correct "kills the truth.

"You need to look for the truth, you need to watch for the enemy, you need to find… the target and how to combat it and what you achieve every day to do so," she added. "And this is something I think is essential and I don't see that in the West we do that."

Berko says her research on terrorism has found Islamic jihadists "actually rely on our morality, that we wouldn't dare to do what they dare to do — and we are about human rights.

"But we should be about human life," she said. "You should seek for security even if sometimes it's bothering you."

In Israel, she adds, citizens have such a heightened awareness of security that they oftentimes stop terror attacks, "not the police and not the security services.

"This is something that I don't see here," she said.

She added that she does not support the suggestion from GOP presumptive nominee Donald Trump that the families of terrorists must be killed.

"We cannot be like them," she said, but added: "Do whatever is necessary but without losing control.

"We need to be different from them, we cannot act in terrorism like they do. But we need to be more creative…make it in a better way, better thinking."
