Guiora Publishes SL Trib Op-Ed

On February 1, Amos Guiora, professor of Law at the S.J. Quinney College of Law, published an op-ed in The Salt Lake Tribune.

Titled “For Israel, the safety of its own people must come first,” the piece focuses on the continuing political strife in the Gaza Strip, with the rising number of deaths of innocent Palestinian civilians as well as members of the Israel Defense Forces. Though he agrees that the Palestinians “continue to pay a heavy price,” Professor Guiora also criticizes their “passive support” of Hamas’ reckless leadership, who “rather than develop an educational system, rather than create infrastructure, rather than create jobs, rather than create opportunity for Gazans, [they] fired thousands of missiles into Israel.”
