Well, I have to note quickly here that it sounds like you may have mistaken my message to be condemning the tactic of targeted assassination. I
honestly have no problem with it under some circumstances. Very limited circumstances perhaps, but it sure beats going to war. Saddam comes to
mind...as do a couple in Afghanistan. Whole wars could have been averted by the practice....very selectively.
I'm only informing you of Israel's policy of political realism, a policy which has taken on premium status in the Natanyahu government.
Each paradigm prescribes how Israel should deal with the party in question. Because in Islamic country, power and force is the be-all-end-all of
ethics, and liberal democracy seems to have difficulty catching on, particularly in Sunni countries, Israel has no choice but to resort to effective
methods. For example, it's been suggested, "why not arrest terrorists"? Why, instead of bombing terrorist locations, doesn't Israel just go in and
apprehend the parties they suspect of misconduct? Would it mean anything? Would someone living in the mini statlet of Gaza submit himself to Israeli
In short, Israel faces an extremely difficult enemy. This enemy doesn't easily appreciate the values of a liberal democracy; quite the contrary, his
views correspond to the fascist approach of Nazism than the British or American approach of liberalism. Thus, harsher methods are needed in dealing
Now it's simply not true to say Israel has not assassinated people in Europe. Of course it has.
Are you referring to Islamists? or basic Europeans?
I'm simply saying Israel wouldn't waste it's resources on assassinating hackers when other agencies could simply compile evidence and arrest them.
. Besides, since Israel is on good terms, or shares a basic culture, with the countries of the west, it's in their interest to carry out matters in a
democratic fashion, and so not assassinate people willy nilly.
As to the question, are the hackers succeeding in disrupting Israel's activities? If they are, I'd imagine Mossad would contact the CIA, FBI, CSIS,
etc to apprehend these people and bring them to justice.
