    For any wanting to read that excellent transcript with Remi Brulin concerning the use of the term “terrorist”, it is a sort of, backdrop and quite interesting concerning Israel’s use of the term because their use basically set the use of the word. In fact there were two conferences put on by the Jonathan Institute, named for Bibi’s brother who died at Entebbe.

    I find it an utterly amazing read because Remi Brulin in concrete terms traced the current maintstream use of the term “terrorism” back to this.

    Think of it. Israel defined it’s use. Isn’t it fortunate for them.

  2. If i recall correctly, the Supreme Court didn’t rule out assassinations but set criteria to decide when to assassinate rather than arrest. The point of Blau’s original publication isn’t assassinations themselves (since there’s nothing new) but the apparent disregard of court rulings, since these criteria where not used in the decision process.

    1. I write that the Court ruling “limited” or “constrained” the use of the tactic & that the IDF deliberately ignored the ruling & also lied in covering up the targeted killing thus violating the Supreme Court ruling and, if a high court ruling has any validity in Israel, violating the law. The U.S. justice system would be all over such an incident esp. if it violated a U.S. Supreme Court ruling. Not so, Israel.

  3. If I remember correctly, Haggai Matar was one of those who published a plea from Kamm on Facebook and Twitter, asking Israeli bloggers not to say a word of the case.

    If Kamm and Matar had their way, we would have still known much less about the case, and the whole affair may have been settled in the dark.

    Apparently, some consider Freedom of Press as a value applied selectively when convenient.
