    Arabs Riot in Jerusalem Over Bin Laden's Demise, Hamas Angry

    [​IMG]

    Arabs in the village of Silwan, adjacent to the City of David neighborhood in Jerusalem, rioted Monday night in protest over the elimination of Osama Bin-Laden. The rioters were throwing stones at police and attempting to block roads.

    While most of the free world praised the United States for having rid it of arch-terrorist Bin Laden, the Hamas organization - which has recently all but merged with Fatah, headed by Mahmoud Abbas - condemned the act.

    The Gaza-based website Al Qassam reports that Gaza leader Ismail Haniyeh, the head of the local Hamas chapter that runs Gaza, told reporters on Monday that Bin Laden was an "Arab holy warrior."

    Meeting with journalists in his office in Gaza City, Haniyeh said, "If this news [of Bin Laden's killing] is true, then this means that it is part of the American policy based on the oppression and bloodshed in the Muslim and Arab world."

    Haniyeh expressed his strong condemnation for the killing or assassination of Bin Laden, whom he referred to as "Mujahed" - someone in engaged in jihad, holy war against infidels. He said he was praying for mercy for Bin Laden.

    Hamas reached a "reconciliation" agreement with Fatah last week, calling for the formation of a joint interim government in the coming days, and preparations for elections a year from now throughout Judea, Samaria and Gaza. The agreement was hailed by most left-wing and anti-Israel organizations

    Good. If they gather in crowds like that they make easy targets.

    Fucking Hamas and their stupid fucking antics. Thankfully, the vast majority of Palestinian totally disagree with this, and I hope they vote those pieces of shit out of office:

    Hamas and fatah are merging, you're not going to be able to tell the difference soon. Abbas and fatah lost, they gave in to the hard-line hamas terrorist’s thugs

    (RTTNews) - Hamas, the radical Islamist group that controls the Palestinian territory of the Gaza Strip, on Monday condemned the killing of al-Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden by American ground troops as an "assassination" of an "Arab holy warrior".

    "We condemn the assassination of a Muslim and Arab warrior and we pray to God that his soul rests in peace," Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh said Monday. "We regard this as the continuation of the American oppression and shedding of blood of Muslims and Arabs."

    His reaction came just days after an Hamas police operation resulted in deaths of two members of an al-Qaeda inspired group allegedly responsible for the abduction and murder of Italian Gaza activist Vittorio Arrigoni in April.

    I wonder how the State Department will spin this.

    Why must we assume that? Maybe Hamas lost and are giving in to the soft-liner Fatah "doves." We have yet to see the details of their agreement. I'd see the latter as much more likely, because Palestinians are tired of getting pounced on over and over again and the majority realize that violence and extremism are not going to help - in fact, Hamas' hardline and oppressive approach since the intra-Palestine conflict began has probably done more to delegitimize it in the eyes of the Palestinian people than Israel's bombs have. The entire Arab world is moving towards non-violent resistance, and I fully expect Palestinians, even in Gaza, to follow suit.

    Please don't take offense by this, but I really think there is so much hate on both sides, Bitterness, Generations need to literally die out before People can move on. Intermarriage, relating in general, socializing, what have you, is far from being the norm. Time heals, there hasn't been enough of it yet.

    There is no intermarriage with Radical Islam. Remember the basic teaching of their faith is the extermination of infidels. In that regard the human blood sacrifice beheading ceremony to Allah is the most high ceremony in Radical Islam.

    They follow the procedure exactly as Mohamed taught them In Medina where he had all of the men of two Jewish tribes executed so he and his men could steal their possessions and rape their women. If they liked the women they called them their wives, if not, they sold them into slavery.

    Remember, according to Radical Islam, in the last days, all Christians and Jews must be beheaded in the Holy ceremony to Allah. Even the trees will cry out to the Muslim warriors telling where the Jews or Christians are hiding so the Muslim warriors can behead them.
