No surprise, but it looks like the response to Zarqawi's comeuppance depends on your level of assholery. Ranking in with a stupendous level, Hamas offered up a statement that was picked up by the WP.

The radical Islamic group Hamas, which won control of the Palestinian parliament in January, deplored the U.S. airstrike that killed Zarqawi and praised him as a martyr. "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.

Well, god knows I feel better now that those wankers are running the PLO. God knows what Israel is always worried about.

On a sidenote, it looks like Israel isn't taking a wait and see attitude. Hamas recently added a known terrorist to their government as the head of their security forces. It looks like that position has now come vacant again.

An Israeli airstrike Thursday killed the director general of the Hamas-run Interior Ministry and leader of a radical armed group responsible for many rocket attacks on southern Israel, as well as three of his bodyguards, as they visited a militia training camp in the Gaza Strip.

It's been a good couple of days.
