It's not often that i am happy about a death, but this is one to celebrate. Arch-terrorist Ahmed Yassin (Yimach sh'mo) is dead! And hopefully Arafat (Y"S) is next. If we get rid of those murderers, perhaps peace will reign. Their vacancy will give it a spot to rest.
It's amazing though. There are many who actually criticize Israel for this. We're talking about the leader of a terrorist organization that specifically promoted murdering people, has murdered hundreds, injured thousands--many of which were maimed--, and talked about extended operation into the US. The Prime Minister of the Arabs living in Israel said that Yassin (Y"S) was a moderate! Why was he a moderate? Because he was willing to have a ten-year cease-fire if Israel retreated to the green-line. IOW, give those murderers everything that every international agreement could have hoped for, ans they'll sign ten years of peace. What then? Find something else to fight for? Kind of like the Lebanese terrorists, Israel evacuated, and the UN (Y"S) verified the international boundary, so now they made another excuse to continue fighting.
It makes one wonder. If Bin Laden (Y"S) was killed by US forces, what response would we get?
