Rantissi killing: World reaction
Dear God, the entire world except Israel and USA condemned killing a major player in Hamas. And USA's statement was far too weak.
My preferred statement by the USA would be something like:
Good riddance to bad men. We pray Israel will continue this policy of making the world a better place. We are currently developing methods to coordinate with Israel to aid in future strikes. We will treat any condemnation of this action as condemnation of the United States as well. We wish to stand united with Israel, and the Jews, hand in hand, if they will have us.
I realise the "wish to" and "if they will have us" is a bit weak for a public statement, but i can dream.
The most interesting quote was:
Lebanese Culture Minister Ghazi al-Aridi:
"This is an ongoing soap opera and we'll see more murders of Palestinian leaders... This is absolute terrorism in all senses of the word."
Hamas leaders are "Palestinian leaders"?
