Skip to comments.'A Terrorist's Place is in the Crosshairs of a Gun'

Minister of Transport Yisrael Katz (Likud-Beytenu) noted with satisfaction Saturday night that the date set for freeing the fourth and final tranche of Palestinian Arab terrorist prisoners has passed without them having been released.
We passed the set date yesterday and no terrorist wasd freed, he said. Not [Marwan] Bargouti, not the Israeli terrorists and not the rest of the terrorist murderers.
"Jew-killers belong between the crosshairs of a gun, and if not that then in jail, he stated.
Terror victims' organization Almagor held a rally of identification with the bereaved families protesting outside the Prime Minister's Residence in Jerusalem Saturday evening. The families demand that the murderers of their loved ones remain in jail.

What if they gave a Jihad and nobody came?
Terrorists never belong in jail; they belong dead. Zero recidivism.

He’s sure got that right. Its encouraging to see that not all Jews suffer from their tribal Suicide Syndrome...
There's a problem with this sort of assertion: labeling active political dissidents as 'terrorists' springs immediately to mind.
Understood. I can differentiate between mere ‘dissidents’ and murderous ‘terrorists’; unfortunately, the DoINJ can’t and doesn’t. When dissidents cross the line into destruction and death of others, they belong in the latter category, and that group should get the maximum penalty.

Usually easy to differentiate. Activists and dissidents talk. Terrorists bomb and shoot and stab. A dissident group may have a radical fringe or be infiltrated by provocateurs, but aim for the guys with the bombs instead of the megaphones, and you can’t go too wrong.
Counter-argument: How many school busses did these distinguished gentlemen hit with anti-tank guns? How many suicide bombers did they send forth into crowded public places? Terrorism these days means targetting civilians, not soldiers.
The Boston Tea Party was aimed at destruction of civil property (East India Company) in defiance of the Tea Act of May 10, 1773.
Boston Massacre was the death of civilians, yet the soldiers were [rightly, IMO] acquitted, as they were fighting against imminent threat to their lives/safety.
But in any case, my point was that the label of
terrorist can be applied to people who aren't.
I agree that the behavior you describe is the true measure of [the spirit of] terrorism.
It was the death of American civilians at the hands of British regulars. Admittedly, they were a mob that was doing their very best to provoke a confrontation. Likewise, the “destructives” that were disguising themselves as Indians that went marauding in upstate New York were in the employ of the king, as was Tavington. All in all, the colonial rebels mostly observed the rules of war, as did the Irgun in most cases. I am aware of the ease with which dissidents can be mislabeled, but in these days the distinction is usually stark, especially with the likes of Marwan Barghouty, who is thankfully still in his cage.
Forgot. Boston Tea Party was the destruction of property all but owned by His Majesty’s government. The East India Tea Company was a quasi-governmental body, and one of the aims of the government was to continue to monopolize trade with the colonies, which the colonials resisted strenuously. There were also taxes imposed on the colonies to pay for the French Indian War debts which the colonists themselves largely financed, starting with the Sugar Tax, the Stamp Act, and eventually leading up to the Tea Tax, all taxes imposed on products legally available only through quasi-governmental monopolies.
