AUTHOR: Slublog DATE: 3/22/2004 08:30:00 AM ----- BODY: Yassin Killed - Hamas leader and mass murderer Sheik Ahmed Yassin was killed by an Israeli airstrike. It seems Israel finally grew tired of hearing Yassin promise peace while at the same time having to bury the victims of murders that Yassin helped plan. The world community, of course, will be outraged at this action. They will spew the same tired rhetoric about injustice and the Palestinian "cause" and talk about how Yassin was moving toward peace talks. Allahpundit is "upset" by this development. The response of others, though, shows that the idea of killing Israelis wasn't all that unpopular with some Americans. Reading further in that thread will show that Yassin's death has brought about one amazing response already - some sense is seen at DemocraticUnderground. --------
