Got the Bastard

Today is a great day. The founder of Hamas, Sheik Ahmed Yassin, was blown to pieces by the Israelis in an airstrike.

The objective of Hamas, explicitly spelled out in its charter, is to conquer the state of Israel and turn it into a Taliban-style police state. Only the enemies of civilization will miss him.
UPDATE: Sigh. I know. I shouldn’t make a big deal out of some random anonymous twit saying something dumb somewhere on the Internet. But this response by someone named “chimpymustgo” at Democratic Underground is really something.

I am disgusted by this reaction. How many innocents were killed?
What was this person proven guilty of?
Good God, folks – what have we come to?

Hey, at least he’s arguing with DU posters who are glad the bastard is toast.
