Assassination

I’m glad that Sheik Ahmed Yassin is now, truly, the spiritual leader of Hamas.

I’m also happy that the U.S. has refused to condemn Israel’s action, this time.

It’s no surprise that the UN and EU have condemned the action, but they have no moral authority. It’s disppointing that Britain has condemned it, and factually wrong of British Foreign Secretary Jack Straw to call the action “unjustified”.

I’m not sure whether the killing will prove to be a strategic mistake or not, but the guy richly deserved what he got, and worse. Hamas is at war with Israel, and he personally ordered the gruesome murders of many innocent people.

I’ve never understood the inverted morality that views assassination of murderous leaders to be foul play, while bombing civilians to be a legitimate way to conduct war.

I much prefer assassination.
