Why do people who call themselves liberals get sad when a racist is killed.
My bleeding heart only goes so far. I am not, per se, for the death penalty. However, I cannot for the life of me undetand the sadness or outrage from the left about the muder of Sheik Yassin.
To anyone who heard his speeches, Yassin was an extreme racist. Yet today I have heard him being called a moderate, a spiritual leader, and a host of other things that should not apply to a man who just like Hitler vowed to kill all Jews.
It is deeply insensitive to Jewish people everywhere to suggest that this man was some kind of saint. If the left truly believes all Jews should die, it is no left at all, simply a fascist mirror of the right with predjudices of it's own.
I understand the Palestinian struggle, and the needs of the people for freedom and peace. Yassin never in his life offered peace or looked for peace. In fact, he emphatically denied the peace process and constantly called for more murder. If there ever was a justifiable homicide, it happened to him. If he had resided in the U.S., he would be at Guantanamo right now.
If you think for a second that Hamas and Al Aqsa are going to truly escalate violence, you don't understand how escalated it has been even before the death of Yassin.
Over 40 bombing attempts are stopped in Israel daily. If you mean to say Yassin will come from the grave and make those forty people succeed, you really need to see a psychiatrist. There could be no more violence than is already attempted every day.
The only thing that happened is that Hamas leaders will be wary from now on about what type of racist doctrine they spew, because even if you are disabled, it will be equal rights for all racists, they will all meet the same fate. Racist speech IS a hate crime. Would that Yassin was limited like the KKK here to just speech, but he not only took it further, he was indeed a murderer.
