Arabs Riot in Jerusalem Over Bin Laden’s Demise, Hamas Angry
Via Israel Nation News: While most of the free world praised the United States for having rid it of arch-terrorist Bin Laden, the Hamas organization – which has recently all but merged with Fatah, headed by Mahmoud Abbas – condemned the act. Similarly, Arabs in the village of Silwan, adjacent to the City of David neighborhood in Jerusalem, rioted Monday night in protest over the elimination of Osama Bin Laden. The rioters threw stones at police and attempted to block roads.
The Gaza-based website Al Qassam reports that Gaza leader Ismail Haniyeh, the head of the local Hamas chapter that runs Gaza, told reporters on Monday that Bin Laden was an “Arab holy warrior.”
Meeting with journalists in his office in Gaza City, Haniyeh said, “If this news [of Bin Laden’s killing] is true, then this means that it is part of the American policy based on the oppression and bloodshed in the Muslim and Arab world.” Haniyeh expressed his strong condemnation for the killing or assassination of Bin Laden, whom he referred to as “Mujahed” – someone in engaged in jihad, holy war against infidels. He said he was praying for mercy for Bin Laden.
Yes, we won a battle in killing Osama bin Laden yet the War on Terror is far from over. Prayers our U.S. Military stays safe.
