Well, 2009 is starting off with a bang!an 2, 2009 1:15 | Updated Jan 2, 2009 1:59 IDF kills top Hamas terror sheikh Rayyan
Israel stepped up the pressure on Hamas on Thursday and dropped a one-ton bomb on the home of one of the group's top five leaders, Sheikh Nizar Rayyan, killing him and a reported 18 others as the IDF made final preparations for a ground operation expected in the coming days.

Rayyan was both the director and the financier of the 2004 terror attack at the Ashdod port, which killed 10 Israelis, and in October 2001 he sent his son to perpetrate a suicide attack in the Gush Katif settlement Elei Sinai, where two Israelis were killed. [emphasis added]
It amazes and disgusts me that these savage leaders are willing to send their progeny to explode, but are reluctant to explode themselves.
