Israel and Capital Punishment

By Edna Ullmann-Margalit

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), October 2002

The author states that the only time capital punishment was applied in Israel was, famously, in the case of Adolf Eichmann, who was executed as a punishment for Nazi crimes in the 1960s. The Israeli policy of targeted killings, aimed at Palestinian terror activists, remains controversial. The author discusses the justifications for not resorting to capital punishment, the demand for which has never gained significant momentum and has not been adopted.
