Blog Post: Proportionality and "€œJust War"

By Leonard Fein

Americans for Peace Now, July 2006

The author proposes questions, not answers, as to the calculus of proportionality and collateral damage in the process of justifying war. In Israel's ongoing bombing of South Lebanon, the number of innocent Lebanese that are dying in the intense bombing raise extremely difficult questions. The moral and ethical calculations are not evident, but they must be soberly undertaken.
