    According to Halachah we can't judge people to death today. There are ethical dillemas in war in regards to killing innocents civilians or human shields. Halacha has an opinion about these ethical dillemas. These books though are theoretical we can't apply these halachic descisions in the real world . Thats also the case for Rabin in so far as he may have been a Moser. There are many ethical dilemmas in Israel Halachah has an opinion or there may be several Halachic opinions. The text you were referring to though was all theorectical. Practical Halachah is something else. Regarding the burning of olive trees and fighting The arabs are doing the exact same thing to settlers, They are also stealing land in the Golan and attacking Israelis who live there. There are fights but don't blame Halachah for that. The fights are because people are people and they fight about the land
