We condemn the assassination and the killing of an Arab holy warrior. We ask God to offer him mercy with the true believers and the martyrs.Senior Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh
(reacting to the death of Osama bin Laden)
I rather suspect there will be little mercy for someone who remorselessly killed thousands and brought untold misery to many more. And these are the very leaders which people (including some Christians) expect Israel to make peace with. There can never be peace with Hamas.
