Sheik Ahmed Yassin’s Death Is A Good Thing
As most of you probably already heard, Israel turned wheelchair bound Hamas founder Sheik Ahmed Yassin into a pile of twisted wreckage & red pulp with a missile last night and I could not approve more strongly of what they did…well scratch that, had they put a few missiles into Arafat’s compound so that Yassin would have someone to chat with in hell, that would have been an improvement.
Yassin was the founder & leader of a group that has murdered hundreds of Israelis & has killed Americans as well. Hamas has openly proclaimed that their goal is not living in peace with Israel, but genocide. So who cares if Hamas is now saying they are going to open up the “gates of hell” over this attack? That’s what they try to do every day of the week, it’s their raison d’etre. When you’re dealing with people who have that sort of mentality, the question isn’t “should you kill them at every opportunity,” it’s “why shouldn’t you kill them at every opportunity”?
But of course, the Europeans have an answer to that questions…
“The European Union rounded angrily on Israel on Monday for killing Hamas spiritual leader Sheikh Ahmed Yassin, warning that his assassination was “very bad news” for the Middle East peace process.
EU foreign ministers appealed for restraint on all sides after Yassin’s killing in an Israeli helicopter strike, which they called an illegal act that would only fuel bloodshed and further hinder Middle East peace efforts.
“The assassination… has inflamed the situation,” they said in a statement. “Violence is no substitute for the political negotiations, which are necessary for a just and lasting settlement.”
EU foreign policy chief Javier Solana said: “The manner in which you fight terrorism is through the law. This was an illegal act under international law.
“This is very, very bad news for the peace process,” he added.”
Look, there is no “peace process”. There cannot be “political negotiations” or a “peace process” which features one side that considers genocide to be a condition of peace. You don’t make peace with people like Yassin, Abu Abbas, or Yassir Arafat. You kill them or they kill you and “international law” which is an irrelevant joke under the best of circumstances doesn’t have anything to do with it. You can talk about “violations of international law” all day long, but since no one is going to enforce it, it’s just as meaningless as those tags on your mattress that say “do not remove under penalty of law”.
So since there is no “peace process” to speak of, “international law” means nothing, & terrorist groups like Hamas & Islamic Jihad intend to kill as many Israelis as possible no matter what happens, Israel should not hesitate to kill every Palestinian terrorist they can, Arafat included. Nobody with half a brain in the US is crying any tears over Al-Qaeda terrorists who get gunned down or blown away with hellfire missiles, and there’s not a dime’s worth of difference between any member of Hamas or Al-Qaeda. The more of them that get locked up or preferably killed, the safer civilization is….
