Looking for resources to help discuss the recent death of Osama bin Laden with your students? JPEF's Ethics and '
Pages 4 and 7 of the guide include several quotes and perspectives — including President Obama on responding to terrorism and Al Qaeda — which highlight the relevance of the Jewish partisans' ethical dilemmas with we see every day in the headlines. Here are a few excerpts:
"…Negotiations cannot convince Al Qaeda's leaders to lay down their arms. To say that force may sometimes be necessary is not a call to cynicism — it is a recognition of history…" — President Obama
"Evil only recognizes stronger evil." — Jewish partisan Simon Trakinski
"… Only by repaying evil with good do we defeat it." — Judea Pearl (father of slain journalist Daniel Pearl)
