Court's delay of destruction for terrorist houses isn't helpful

The high court again caused anger by agreeing to delay the demolition of 7 houses belonging to terrorists:
Right-wing politicians were infuriated on Thursday following a High Court of Justice ruling earlier in the day to delay demolishing the homes of several terrorists involved in attacks in Jerusalem and Judea and Samaria that claimed the lives of Naama and Eitam Henkin, Malachi Rosenfeld and Danny Gonen.

"We demolished a terrorist's home three days ago," Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said. "Now we have a policy of exacting a price from suicide attackers, because the suicide attacker is after all dead, it's reasonable to assume that he knows he will die, but we know this is one of the more effective tools. Our problem is the disconnect between the act and the result of the act. Therefore we are specifically requesting to minimize the length of time [to obtain a demolition order], and I hope the High Court will also make its ruling, whatever it is, as quickly as possible, although it is better it rules quickly rather than take its time. If they decide, and they usually decide to demolish, it's preferable to do so near the time of the [terrorist] act, within a matter of days rather than weeks or months."

Immigrant Absorption Minister Zeev Elkin (Likud) urged the High Court "not to drag its feet and immediately convene new hearings over the demolishing of terrorists' homes that the court suspended today. High Court judges also need to understand that we are in a war against terrorism, and a democracy that doesn't know how to defend itself cannot win this war. Preventing the next attack by generating deterrence, in the form of razing terrorists' homes, is the order of the day, and it's inconceivable that the High Court is [obstructing] cabinet decisions."

Tourism Minister Yariv Levin (Likud) said that "the High Court has once again managed to break its own record for absurdity, and with a decision that is borderline delusional. It is handcuffing the security forces and the government at the height of a terrorism wave. The time has come for High Court judges to understand that their job is to protect the Israeli public and not those who seek to murder us."
Haim Shine says that deterrence should not be undermined, and indeed no, it most definitely should not. The "families" of the jihadists are guilty on their own part for indoctrinating, allowing indoctrination, and they have to recognize that if they don't obey the laws, they cannot be surprised if they'll end up losing houses they don't deserve.
