Spare Us the Righteous Tears at the Death of Another Monster

(Telegraph-UK) Barbara Amiel - None of us likes "extra-judicial" measures, but it is hypocrisy laid on with a trowel to suggest that psychotic beings such as Yassin and Rantisi are anything other than murderers in cold blood. Hamas and similar groups, such as Hizballah, Islamic Jihad or Arafat's al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades, have no interest in an honorable two-state solution. Apologists for these groups routinely condemn suicide bombers and then describe them as part of "the cycle of violence in the Middle East" which would stop if only Israel would address their grievances. No doubt. Their grievance is the existence of Israel. Arab terrorism against the State of Israel began in 1948 and never stopped.
