The headline is arresting -- "At Any Cost" -- really? -- hyperbole perhaps, but the opinion expressed in the article is even more shocking. This is a straightforward justification for murder. In Levy's view, Gilad's captivity and the imprisonment of Palestinians in Israeli jails derive from the same underlying cause: the "occupation." No occupation, no murder, no murder, no imprisonment etc. This simple syllogism justifies murder. One can express sympathy with Palestinian aspirations without justifying the release of violent criminals.
