WHAT ABOUT TORTURE?



The Ben Gurion principle holds. Torture is not an abstract notion. Somebody needs to do the torturing. Would you want to have a torturer as a neighbor? A son in law? A father of your child? This may sound like practical rather than moral reasoning. But I believe in the interdependency of the two.

Hence, as tempting as it may be at times, torture should remain the dirty word it is.
