Champion of Terrorism: Thomas Friedman

Here, Thomas Friedman, endorses and champions the Israeli murder of Lebanese civilians in the 2006 Israeli war on Lebanon: "It was not pretty, but it was logical. Israel basically said that when dealing with a nonstate actor, Hezbollah, nested among civilians, the only long-term source of deterrence was to exact enough pain on the civilians — the families and employers of the militants — to restrain Hezbollah in the future."
