אינו בוחל באמצעים

Literally "one who doesn't loath any means" is the Hebrew expression for one who justifies any and all means to an end.
Pronounced: ay'no boe'chel b'em'tza'im

Used often in the context of terrorists groups that use loathsome means to justify their goals: from bombing of innocent civilian; using schools, mosques, hospitals for launching rockets and or caching weapons; other examples include using their own civilians, children, women, and elderly as human shields.

In a lighter context it may be used to describe, politicians, or any greedy group or person who is unashamed of applying any means to achieve their desired goal
