* There was one story about an Arab officer during the ArabIsraeliConflict who caught an Arab and a Jew spying inside his camp. The Arab was just hanged, being a traitor. The Jew however was ShotAtDawn as, although he was a spy he was serving his country and thus he deserved a "soldier's death" as befitted a WorthyOpponent.
