Last night a foreign worker was mistaken for a terrorist and was basically lynched . I remember how in a previous terrorist attack a sephardic Jew was also killed when mistaken for a terrorist.
And here comes the rub: quick reaction to terror is needed to prevent further casualties. Yet caution is needed to avoid mistakes.
HOWEVER, the foreign worker who died yesterday was killed not just because of being shot, but due to the subsequent lynching. ONCE A TERRORIST has been unarmed, there can be no excuse for a lynching. We are allowed to defend ourselves, but we should never descend to the level of our enemies.
