Ex-Mossad chief: Rantisi strike is blow to Hamas
Edited on Sun Apr-18-04 07:43 AM by drdon326


Former Mossad chief MK Danny Yatom (Labor) said Abdel Aziz Rantisi's killing was another blow to Hamas following the death of Shiekh Ahmed Yassin.

"Hamas' strength is its line of leaders, this is what Israel is targeting. We have no choice but to fight to the death with a group like Hamas, which wants the destruction of Israel," Yatom said.


Referring to Hamas leader Khaled Mashal, who is the de facto leader of the Islamic terrorist group and who is receiving sanctuary in Damascus, Yatom said Mashal "is the number one man in the Hamas." Yatom was the head of the Mossad during the 1997 botched assassination attempt on Mashaal in Amman, Jordan, which led to the capture of two Mossad agents and the release of Yassin from Israeli prison.

"Even when we tried to kill him in Jordan, he was their top leader. I suspect that the Hamas leadership will continue to operate from Damascus. The heads of Hamas are hiding and spending more time trying to find out who are the Israeli agents in their ranks, than trying to carry out attacks," Yatom said, adding, "Mashaal is the number one man in Hamas. He was always on the top of our list. He remains on the list."

"What happened today was an intelligence coup of the highest order," Yatom told Israel Radio.

3. Now a secret
Keeping Hamas leaders secret shows that they will loose a lot of popular support. With Hamas profile diminished, Israel, Israelis and visitors will be safer.

4. And now the political stupidity begins....
the hypocrisy of arab leaders condemning the killing.

the hand-wringing of "upsetting" the terrorists.

and morally reprehensible blubbering of "cycle of violence"


"Jordan's King Abdullah II is to meet Bush on Wednesday for discussions on the peace process.
Hossam Zaki, spokesman for the Arab League, called the assassination "a criminal act" that puts an end to all peace efforts.

"This is state terrorism again," he said in Cairo. "This is an (Israeli) conviction (put) into action ... that this conflict will be settled by the use of force, which they apply whenever they can."

funny how he didnt mention Black September where he father killed more
palestinians than israel has ever done. Must have been an oversight.


hand-wringing,blubbering and moral hypocrisy....its good you can
count of something.

5. Not everyone worships violence.
Some of us see it as the discredited tool of sadistic idiots. Does this mean we are morally reprehensible and stupid too ?
