#1 A big success for the IDF. Reason to celebrate certainly.

Looks to me like theyre trying to clear the ground for Dahlan to take over when they leave Gaza. Word is that while Dahlan dominates Gaza city, Hamas/AAMB dominated Rafah and the smuggling tunnels to Egypt.

Getting Yassin also makes it harder for Hamas to spin Gaza withdrawl as a victory.

Next target Rantissi, I presume.

#10 Wrongo, PeaceNik--the Arab Muslims started it right after Israel declared nationhood in 1947 and they've never stopped.
Ask around, read some history and keep up!
The Islamists were the ones that decided Israel shouldn't exist and that all Jews should be killed and Yassin was the prime pusher of this.
That's what it's MOST EXCELLENT that he's a blood stain and a mangled wheelchair!

And you know what, it doesn't matter who started because we're gonna finish it.

#15 What a completely depraved little wanker you are, peacenik.
You obviously know nothing of the history of that part of the world, or of Hamas and its bloody atrocities.
You are going along to conform, or for some other infantile personal reason.
Terrorism doesn't work without appeasers and surrender activists to make it work. Idiots like you breed violence. Real people die because of this bullshit, idiot, fit in with your crowd some other way, or find a new crowd.
If the Paleos gave up violence, there would be peace tomorrow. If the Israelis gave up violence, they would all be massacred and dumbshits like you would excuse it.
Peacenik, my ass, you're an accessory to murder.
A million Streichers, a million ropes.

#19 It seems that the Paleos are going absolutely apeshit over this one. At LGF, Charles advises Israeli readers to "lock and load."

Maybe, for once, the Paleos' atavistic rage will overcome their craven cowardice and they will charge in great screaming berserk masses toward Israeli border posts and settlements.

I think it is possible that their American tools will do likewise by Monday afternoon, finally throwing off the mask of naive pacifism and showing themselves for the brutes and authoritarian murder apologists they are.

They've been working themselves up to it for years and the recent "anti-war" demos were uglier than in the past.

This might be the big showdown.

#26 I work at a local newspaper in the outer 'burbs of Milwaukee (or the WAY outer 'burbs of Chi-town, depending on how you look at it).

Anyway, Sunday nights offer little to do but tone photos and send negatives down to the press crew, and tonight was no exception at first: photo after photo of insignificant local events, the local choir going to Carnegie Hall, yada yada.

You can imagine my surprise -- nay, glee -- at the arrival of a photo labeled "Yassin, 2 columns."

That's how I found out. Why else would a local rag like mine be running a two-column pic of Sarumon?

Three guesses where I checked first for confirmation.

Tonight -- just tonight -- let the trolls rant. Nothing they say can wipe the grin off my face.

The number of Blacks killed in South Sudan by their Arab enslavers is over five hundred times the number of Palestinians. You aren't doing any fuss about it. I can only deduce you are a sickening racist. In fact you are probably too racist to be admitted in the KKK.

#29 Well its obvious Egypt and Jordan approved this they would have condemned it by now. Yassin had finally pissed those two countries off enough for them to give Israel the go ahead. As of now the only condemnations are from the free lance appeasement community.

#44 I've been reading this site for a long time, and more often than not I agree with you guys - and I love the commentary! In the past, I never really had much to say, but I had an odd thought just now while reading these comments.

I go to a Christian college with a fair number of pacifists, and at least one professor who I know will be lamenting over this bastard's death. I don't subscribe to those views; I think we're in a war to the death with those who wish to kill us, and, in some ways, those who want to be "tolerant" of others, and part of that means letting them kill us, because we for sure can't stand up and say "That's wrong," because that would be disrespectful . . . Anyway, I'm as happy as anybody over this; my first reaction was "Hot damn, we got him!" And then, as I was reading all the exclamations, I was reminded, rather uncomfortably, of the Palestinians cheering after September 11th. They were just as happy as we were, if not happier. And what, I wondered, is the difference, if there is any?

I think it's because while if we're to win this we have to keep to a higher moral ground lest we descend to the level of our enemies - dammit, I hate saying the leftists have a point, but while their approach is totally wrong they are right in their claim that we do need to observe human rights - we have to do some nasty things. There's no way we can win without killing, because if we don't they will. And when we kill a murderous scumbag, elderly and handicapped or not, it is cause for celebration, especially if he's escaped before ("Wheels, don't fail me now!" Guess they finally did).

But whereas the Palestinians were celebrating the horrible murder of 3,000 people on that terrible day, the casualties of another "battle" in the clash between their world and ours, we are happy that a blight has been removed. People like Yassin are like tumors, and when you defeat a cancer, it's cause for partying. He doesn't deserve any sympathy because he didn't give any, and in fact urged the opposite - and in doing so, forfeited his own right to mercy. The big difference, then, I suppose, is that ultimately, I would hope, we care about human life and freedom, and do what we can to protect it even when that means destroying those who would trample it in the name of "Allah" or "World Socialism" or whatever kind of crap they believe in . . . whereas they don't care about anything but themselves and killing the enemy.

So, I'm sorry, Palestinians, but this guy didn't deserve any consideration whatsoever, and he's not going to heaven, he's going straight down to hell with the rest of the monsters who kill in the name of a false god. We're in a war, and I wish the world would finally recognize that and call evil for what it is instead of trying to "understand" it.

My apologies if this is a bit long; I was troubled by the thought and wanted to offer some perspective - and I hope I didn't come across as a wet blanket, because right now I'd buy any of those IDF pilots a drink. Let's raise a glass in their honor!

#47 Doc,

The difference between them dancing in the streets at 9-11 and our own jubilation over the demise of Sheikh Yassin is pretty simple: 9-11 was a sneak attack, using civilian aircraft filled with civilians. Three out of four of the intended targets were civlian targets. Had the al-Qaeda air force flown over in military aircraft and carried out a raid on, say, Fort Bragg or even on the Pentagon, the Paleos would have been cheering a legitimate attack. We could have sulked, and we'd have known which side they were on, but we'd have had no bitch, even though we'd still have entered a state of war. It would have been a legitimate military action. Instead, it was a dirty action, a sucker punch on a nation at peace. We know which side they're on, all right, and that side's the dirty side.

Sheikh Yassin was one of the muckety-mucks of the dirty side. We're in a war to the death with terrorism, hopefully in all its forms, to include Pat and Mike down at the pub plotting to blow up Harrad's and Heriberto standing guard on the coca fields. I've been saying for the past couple years that the Israelis should be going after the upper reaches of the Paleo terror machine. And we all have good cause for ululation that they are.

I hope Rantissi's next.

#54 B, ok... but, I'll go on celebrating this scum bags death.

To me there is 2 aspects.

1) I hate them because they cheered a succesful attack on my country. Just as they will hate us for cheering a succesful attack on them. This is to be expected in war and hits hard to make a moral judgement about it.

2) The difference is that I am disgusted by them and consider them revolting slime because they cheered an attack deliberatly targetting CIVILIANS. I would also be disgusted at any american who would ever cheer at a successful deliberate attack on civilians, regardless of which side they were on.

#63 Piza-time for the IDF

From Haaretz Flash:
"22:04 Minister Henegbi: Now Yassin and other Hamas leaders understand that we will help them become martyrs"

Hooeaah!

#64 Maybe it's actually 72 surgeons to stitch them back together again.

LOL!! Boy, are they going to be disappointed.

#65 DPA and Tibor - well...I, for one, won't lose any sleep if you do :-) On my list of things to feel bad about, cheering for Yassin's death ranks down somewhere around, number 9,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,021 (to the 10th).

#66 Barbara, my comment from last night was supposed to be a joke :P The guy was blind (or nearly so) so he couldn't have seen the missile coming ;) But maybe he heard it.

#67 I wonder what the Sheikh's stump speech on martyrdom is now...

#69 "Mr Sharon your day's are numbered, you peice of NAZI sh*t."

-wow, are you gonna handle Ariel there joe? Mean old bastard like Sharon prolly whip your ass for ya. I guess your just in mourning over the Yass-man taking a hellfire through the grape. Left a helluva grease stain if ya ask me.

A jew from the only democracy in the mid-east is a nazi huh? Interesting take on the situation joe, I'd advise switching to sanka and maybe laying off the nitrous.

#70 Apparently the shin bet didn't like the idea of yassination. They may have thought that the fact that Yassin required all that care and was a symbol of evil made him worth more alive than dead.

#71 Part of me is disappointed to see anyone die without Christ, but part of me is glad to see justice done.

#72 Part of me is disappointed to see anyone die without Christ
Korora, I conservatively estimate the chances of someone like Yassin receiving Christ at 4,985,210,450,769 - 1. Miraculous conversions, I grant you, have been known, but this sick, twisted bastard was hardly a candidate.

Also, my girlfriend told me she had seen the coffin in the televised funeral coverage, and that it was . . . pretty damn big. I didn't think there was enough left to pick up with a spoon; did they gather up all the pieces, or did they just throw a wheelchair in the coffin in remembrance?

#73 If they find another leader, he will damn sure be quiet about it, and will certainly be an under-the-matarass dweller.
