How absurd can you get

Reader comment on item: In Mideast, Bet on a Strong Horse
in response to reader comment: Israel must not commit to target killings in the world

Julie,

Perhaps you should re-read the Pipes article... Perhaps Barry O might think about stopping targetted killings, after all the Taleban are a long way from the US, and thus 'manifest need' is only periferally present. This would not apply to Israel. It seems only reasonable for Israel to kill the killers of Israelis.

Of course it may well be that the Arabs themselves did the recent Dubai killing, since in their fractured "society" a killer belonging to one clan makes a lot of enemies .... Of course the non-presence of collateral damage would not be "Arab Style", but who knows, maybe they've been doing some reading of history recently...

Submitting....
