Hamas leader among dead in air raid - UPI.com
14 killed , 9 of them were children !!!
may their souls rest in peace : (
well, tell their parents to stop attacking Israel with rockets
I'm always sad when children are killed. Their parents shouldn't lob missles at Israel or be in the midst of Hamas operational sites.
But I do wonder if you made the same prayer when these thirty people (who weren't in the midst of a terrorist staging area or among the 40 tunnels used to commit terrorist acts) were killed.
Passover massacre - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
somehow I'd wager you did a little jig instead.
Rayan was certainly a legitimate target, and the fact that the building was loaded with weapons and ordinance made it a legitimate target, too, and the man certainly deserved to die if for no other reason than he kept his wives and children living over a high value target while other Hamas leaders went into hiding in part to protect their families. But when you balance the value of the target against the cost in civilian lives and suffering, which way do the scales tip? Rayan is believed to have been responsible for a series of suicide bombings that killed 12 Israeli civilians in the past - one of the suicide bombers he sent was his son - and had he lived it is very likely he would have been responsible for the deaths of more Israeli civilians, so perhaps that balances out the civilian deaths caused by his assassination.
While he will be mourned by Hamas supporters, not all Palestinians will mourn his loss despite the cost in civilian lives. Rayan personally led the coup against Fatah 18 months ago in which 100's of Palestinians believed loyal to Abbas were killed, some summarily executed by being tossed from rooftops while Hamas supporters on the roof and in the street cheered. No doubt there will be some cheering in Ramallah tonight.
They're dancing on the streets of Ramallah for this one. This guy was a sworn enemy of Abbas and Fatah.
I'll also admit sheer delight in this motherfucker's death. He's also responsible for several suicide bombings and he was the successor to one of the most evil human beings on the planet, Ahmed Yassin, that wheel chair bound mother fucker who's burning in the deepest, darkest depths of hell right now. Hundreds of innocent Israeli civilians were killed by this mother fucker.
BURN MOTHER FUCKER
really bad karma, david.... wish yourself well...not other people bad.
gotta agree with that
David has done more harm than help to your cause in some of his posts
yeah, I know. not good. I don't ever think we should stoop to the level of the people who mean us harm.
So it's okay to punish children for the crimes of their parents?
