  1. Kol hakovod someone is not afraid to say the truth (of what Halacha requires.). Maybe if the Arabs dioig this kwow that they will have a little pachad(fear) not to do it.

  2. Rambam Hilchos Geneiva 9:7

    הַבָּא בַּמַּחְתֶּרֶת, בֵּין בַּיּוֹם בֵּין בַּלַּיְלָה–אֵין לוֹ דָּמִים: אֵלָא אִם הֲרָגוֹ בַּעַל הַבַּיִת אוֹ שְׁאָר הָאָדָם, פְּטוּרִין. וּרְשׁוּת יֵשׁ לַכֹּל לְהָרְגוֹ בֵּין בַּחֹל בֵּין בַּשַּׁבָּת, בְּכָל מִיתָה שֶׁיְּכוּלִין לַהֲמִיתוֹ–שֶׁנֶּאֱמָר “אֵין לוֹ, דָּמִים”
