Sheikh Yassin

Israeli officials said Yassin was a "terrorist" who deserved death…
"Sheikh Yassin was a dangerous, extremist Islamic ideologist. I believe that he was a threat not only to Israel, but to the entire region." Israeli government spokesman Avi Pazner continued:"I believe the Middle East without Sheikh Yassin, in the long run, will be a better place to live”…
Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon said the "war on terror is not over."…

All I can say is that looking only at one side, assuming that someone is dangerous, regardless of who they are, their religion, their age, their policies, and their principals, gives us the right to kill that someone to “protect” ourselves and to “relief” our societies from their “terrorism”. It’s legal, it’s explainable and so easy to be done, as long as you’re not Palestinian, or Muslim, coz if you were one of these, then the whole scenario changes, it’ll be more like:regardless of your suffering, your torturing, your pain, your loss, your destruction and your age; standing up for yourself, trying to save what’s left for you, trying to rescue your people, or even thinking of having a one night sleep in peace is considered terrorism… you wont need to actually kill, or shoot, a little stone you’d throw is enough for you to be accused of murdering hundreds of innocent people, and a scream to call out for justice will be misunderstood as a threat, and a tear falling from your eye will be interpreted as an alarm for revenge…
May Sheikh Yassin’s soul rest in peace, and now, thanks to our “saviors”, we can finally “enjoy” our “better Middle East”…
