Target killings

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

Here in the USA, we generally call them targeted killings, Julie. Also, we generally use a definite article, like "the" in front of nouns, for example, "the public," or "the Israeli gov't."

You should brush up a bit on English, Julie S. One would almost think your name's not Julie and you came to the USA from someplace very different and very far away.

Meanwhile, I'm sure the Israelis would be very happy not to be endlessly given reasons to have to engage their neighbors in warfare of any kind. They've asked for peace since 1948, and have received in response war after war, attack after attack, and attempt after attempt to "push the Jews into the sea."

Did you complain when Hamas targeted members of Fatah by handcuffing them and shoving them off rooftops in Gaza, Julie S? Or did you make an exception in that case?
