Israel Matzav: Carl in Jerusalem on BBC's WHYS

Carl in Jerusalem on BBC's WHYS

I'm one of the scheduled guests (they don't guarantee that you'll get on, but since they asked me they said I probably would) on the BBC's World Have Your Say program between 6:30 and 7:30 London time (8:30 and 9:30 Israel time; 1:30 and 2:30 US Eastern time) tonight (Thursday) night.

The question I'm going to be discussing is Should there by the death penalty for terrorists?

They came to me because of this post I wrote a month ago.

It seems that India is struggling with some of the same issues that Israel has faced.

But the view coming out of India is that this man should die to protect the population from him becoming a bargaining chip in the future. Sensible, logical argument or something that will do little more than escalating the violence?

And does it depend on the gravity of the crime? The scale of the atrocity? Should a failed bomber, like the person responsible for the Times Square attempted attack in New York, face the death penalty?
