Hamas mourns death of Al Zarqawi in 'savage crusade campaign'

The ruling Palestinian faction Hamas on Thursday deplored the killing by U.S. warplanes of the al Qaeda leader in Iraq Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, describing him as a casualty of a crusade against Arabs and Muslims.

Hamas had distanced itself in the past from violence abroad blamed on al Qaeda, but in a statement faxed to Reuters after Zarqawi was killed in a U.S. air strike north of Baghdad on Wednesday,it said it mourned the Jordanian-born insurgent as a "martyr of the (Muslim Arab) nation".

"With hearts full of faith, Hamas commends brother-fighter Abu Musab ... who was martyred at the hands of the savage crusade campaign which targets the Arab homeland, starting in Iraq," the statement said.
On a visit to Pakistan, Palestinian Foreign Minister Mahmoud al-Zahar of Hamas said Palestinians are "blessing every effort to eliminate the existence of occupation" in Iraq.

"We are dead sure that assassination of any of the people who are resisting will not ... end the resistance," Zahar said at a press conference in the Pakistani capital of Islamabad.
Abu Majed, spokesman for the Palestinian movement Popular Resistance Committees, said, "Whether the fighter leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi was martyred or not, resistance will continue in all Islamic lands as long as occupation exists."

Such nice folks. I wonder if the general populace shares the view of their elected representatives.

I wonder if Jack Straw will call his death "unacteptable!"" as he did with Yassin's.

Simply disgusted some choose to align themselves with such monsters.
