Western morality

The Israeli army chief of staff just confirmed something that Torah Jews have known for a while.

Basically he said that the only thing keeping us from effectively dealing with the missile attack on our cities is a western moral code that the seculars (and DovBear) have adopted. You see, we have the military capacity to stop these attacks but the foreign morality says harming enemy civilians should not be done even at the expense of the lives of our own soldiers and citizens.

As anyone who has learned these sugyas from a Halachic/Torah perspective knows, this view is the opposite of what the Torah advocates. May Hashem free us from the bondage of western values and send Jewish leadership that is true to Hashem and His Word.
