Professor Krauss Publishes Two Articles on Armed Conflict in the Middle East

Professor Michael Krauss and co-writer J. Peter Pham have published two articles this week in TCS Daily, both dealing with the current conflict in the Middle East between Israel and Lebanon.

Stretched to All Proportions, TCS Daily, July 17, 2006. By Michael I. Krauss and J. Peter Pham.

Excerpt:
"Adherence to the principle of proportionality surely requires judgment and prudence, virtues which, had they been possessed and exercised by some of Israel's latest critics, could have headed off the present conflict by dealing with its real root cause, the irredentist anti-Semitism propagated by states (Syria, Iran and others) bent on fomenting death."

Excerpt:

To repeat -- this case is closed; Israel has been invaded and may wage just war against Lebanon."
