    Dear Israeli, I do not have a problem with the liquidation of a terrorist who killed Israelis in the past, and is presently helping in killing more by arranging weapons supply to Hamas. But what I am against is the manner and cost of the operation by which this was done. Involving 26 agents? Risking so many lives and even the future functionality of so many agents? This was not a question of killing somebody uniquely qualified for the job he was doing. He was probably replaced already by a no lesser man. So it was possible to wait for another opportunity. Now that Haaretz is beginning to talk about it, I hope you can realize that this is a serious issue. If you don't examine critically the operation of the institution you have, they will get worse and worse. If you want to criticize the nations of the world, that's fine with me. Perhaps they deserve it and perhaps not, but this you should raise on your own; I haven't touched on that issue and don't deserve criticism for it.
