Was he? Was he not a threat to Israelis? Of course he was! Now, what about the people that considered killing him so important that they did far more harm to Israel and Israelis than he ever could? The terrorist, and the people who murdered him, are not in my opinion, moral people. Thus I have no way to judge this incident on 'moral grounds.' My dictionary says 'moral' means "of or relating to principles of right and wrong in behavior". But then as a lesser meaning it reads, "sanctioned by or operative on one's conscience or ethical judgment." By which both might be quite moral in murdering anyone they wanted to murder. I must go with the first meaning. But then I also must postulate that the interactions of Hamas and Mossad are amoral. Which is to say they ' lying outside the sphere to which moral judgments apply.' What is astounding is that the government of Israel now lacks the morality to stand up and admit it believed what it did was just and right, therefore moral.
