  • Security Commander of the Jewish quarter in Hevron, Lieutenant Colonel (Reserves) Eliyahu Liebman: “If the terrorist moves, he needs to receive a bullet in his head. When a fighter identifies danger on the field, he acts independently to remove the threat.”

    Quote: The Lubavitcher Rebbe:
    “If there exists a question whether or not this is in fact a life-threatening situation, then, just as in an instance of illness one takes the advice of a medical authority, here also, the decision must be made upon the advice of military experts. If military experts decide that there is a life-threatening danger, no other considerations take precedence, since the threat to human-life overrides all else.

    If military experts recommend that parallel to such danger there are other considerations to be taken into account, as for example political considerations (to satisfy the nations)– this is clearly contrary to Jewish Law which demands that no political considerations, only danger to life, must be the ultimate and sole deciding factor.
