    2009 starting off with a bang: IDF kills top Hamas terror sheikh Rayyan

    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]
    Well, 2009 is starting off with a bang!

    It amazes and disgusts me that these savage leaders are willing to send their progeny to explode, but are reluctant to explode themselves.

    Good way to start the year. Hopefully the IDF can get many more of the leaders of that criminal terrorist organization.

    I'm crossing my fingers for the death of more Hamas leaders and the death of the Zionists currently running the country of Israel. We need both gone if there is ever to be peace.

    Ah, a brilliant plan for Chaos.

    Have you ever considered just picking a side?

    Cause I like to watch things die...from a distance

    God is his judge now. I have to remark, though, that's 1 Hamas Official in 250+ dead.

    So, what you're saying, is that encouraging both sides in a conflict is helpful.


    The mind boggles.

    Yes and No. The solution to the Middle East problem will come from moderates willing to negotiate down to the last grain of sand. Not those who 'pick a side' and stick to it. Israel has already shown itself to be willing to negotiate. It's the turn of the Palestinians and has been for a while now. All Israel can do is defend herself and wait.

    You're talking like this is a new thing for you.
