"Peace" and "coexistence" activist Richard Lakin died of his wounds sustained in an attack by Arab terrorists two weeks earlier. Murder by Arab terrorists or any other vicious way is immoral.

Lakin firmly believed that there could be peace between Jews and Arabs, but regardless of the numerous attempts and concessions Israel made to the Arab terrorists, this seems to be no more realistic than "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs."
Despite Lakin’s dovish politics, his relatives left no doubt where they placed the blame for his death. Two other Israelis also were killed in the October 13 attack.Again, those of us on the Right have been proven right about the inherent dangers from Arab society and culture. We aren't "all the same." Please remember that during World War Two, Japan used "suicide bombers," aka kamikaze pilots to attack and destroy allied ships. The role of the kamikaze pilot to destroy and murder as much of the enemy as possible and kill oneself in the process, is still considered so honorable that there's a campaign to have letters and other memorabilia archived.
“He died as a result of the same incitement and hatred he fought against his entire life,” Micha Lakin told the Times of Israel.

This is so like the honors Arab society, especially the PA-Palestinian Authority and the rest of the Arab world showers on the terrorists who murder and attack Jews.
A clear pragmatic look at history and society will show that not all cultures, societies and religions can produce suicide bombers, kamikaze pilots and terrorists. And as the Americans and their allies proved in World War Two, propaganda-information campaigns and ordinary battle plans will not stop such enemies. The Japanese and the Nazis needed to be completely defeated until they surrendered for there to be peace.
Chamberlain's "peace for our time" just caused the war to intensify.

And the late Richard Lakin's sincere, though misguided efforts to offer peace and coexistence to the Arabs only encouraged the violence and the terror by making us look weak and desperate.
And the road to peace is long and difficult, but we won't get there until not only do we seem to defeat the terrorists, but they must beg us for mercy, rather than the situation now when we are begging them to stop their terror!
