Never Harms Its Rag-Tag Political Adversaries

Reader comment on item: "Free Gaza" Flotilla Defeats the Israel Defense Forces

I agree. But, please expand a bit more. For instance, I presume that criminals (e.g. terrorists, esp. those with "blood on their hands") can still be assassinated when feasible. But would the targetted assassination of Sheikh Amed Yassin (spiritual advisor to Hamas) have been approved? Khaled Meshaal?

Of course, no hard-and-fast line can be drawn. But can you sketch-out the thought a bit more...?

Thx.
