[I just sent a follow up note on my posting on capital punishment to a former student to the effect that Israel does not execute — Eichman was the rare exception.  However, I am deeply saddened by Israel’s brutality in killing its enemies with its massive military — funded in part by us Americans.  The killing ratio of Palestinians to Israelis continues to expand and, of course, each Palestinian death in addition to the indignities constantly imposed on Palestinians can only increase their rage and defeat any serious hope for peace.  A sad thought for the new year.  Ed Kent]

Israel hits dead militant’s home
CNN International – 45 minutes ago
JERUSALEM (CNN) — Israeli warplanes on Thursday attacked three targets in Gaza, including the home of a top Islamic Jihad militant who was killed in a separate air strike last week, Palestinian officials said.

“A war is just if there is no alternative, and the resort to arms is legitimate if they represent your last hope.” (Livy cited by Machiavelli)
