Hamas Leader Condemns Killing of Osama Bin Laden


hamas2The leader of the Palestinian militant Hamas government in Gaza has condemned the United States for killing Al Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden.

Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh says the operation is “the continuation of the American oppression and shedding of blood of Muslims and Arabs.”

Haniyeh told reporters in Gaza on Monday that although Hamas had its differences with Al Qaeda, his group condemns the assassination of “a Muslim and Arabic warrior” and prays that bin Laden’s “soul rests in peace.”

Hamas has repeatedly said it has no ties to Al Qaeda and that its violent struggle is directed solely against Israel, and not the West at large.

  1. This is a war crime under international law carried out by the Amerikankis. If the UN condemns Israel’s targeted killings and use of disproportionate force, the UN should also condemn the Amerikankis because they just committed the same outrage, using the same methods and weapons, thereby spilling innocent Arab blood.

  2. I have to agree with him on this one. Where was the American justice? Bin Laden should have been allowed to have his day in court (just like Saddam). I believe Obama & Eric Holder should be tried for war crimes! I hope the UN comes out and condemns this “killing of innocent human life”! What about the murder of the innocent woman that was in the compound? I can’t wait for the BBC to interview her husband & children about how difficult life has become now, now that the Americans have killed their Mother! Etc… Etc… Etc… You get my point.

  3. and prays that bin Laden’s “soul rests in peace.”
    Sure! In peace.
    Just put him on the BBQ and no one will disturb him for at least 300 years!
