    While I do not believe it right to celebrate anyone's killing, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi will not be missed by me. I might add: not only has HAMAS stood with Abu Musab al-Zarqawi but his village, Zarqa, stands by him as well.

    Guardian propagandist Brian Whitaker's comment was, I think, the most interesting when he writes that Abu Musab al-Zarqawi's death gives al Qaeda a martyr. My question would be, why should his martydom concern us? Everyone who dies in a Jihad is treated as a martyr anyway. And, even if he is become an important martyr, how would Mr. Whitaker propose to deal with al Qaeda? Perhaps, he would have us invite the group to a tea party.

    Although technically you are right Neal - "While I do not believe it right to celebrate anyone's killing", I think we can let our hair down a bit on this one. With all the bad news we get fed from Iraq, we can forgive ourselves with at least a little satisfaction over this one.

    The Brian Whitaker take on this is classic. I once engaged him in an exchange of emails when he complained at the length of time it took to pass through security at Ben Gurion Airport in one of his many rants against the Jewish State. He was offended at the thought the Jews took security so seriously even when I explained to him that ultimately it was for his own benefit. Why I asked did he not blame those people who had carried out the attacks or threatened to do so which made such security checks necessary? I still await his response. Now thanks to his friends he has the ignomy of body searches wherever he goes.

    Neal and Family Cohen:

    Have either of you seen Whitaker's "Comments is Free" re: Wafa Sultan, Aayan Hirsi Ali, Irshad Manji and any other Muslim woman who denounces Islam for inspiring all sorts of repugnant things as shrill sell-outs making a buck?

    Like the feministas who opposed the removal of the Taliban because they validate their claims to victim status by identifying with any anti-US, anti-modern force, no matter how repressive and regressive, the gay Whitaker finds common cause with extreme homophobes. What a cretin!
