While Americans and civilized people around the world celebrated that “justice has been done,” Hamas has condemned the killing of Osama bin Laden.
This is the same Hamas that is committed to Israel’s destruction. And the same Hamas that reportedly has agreed to a power-sharing arrangement with the Palestinian Authority to represent the interests and aspirations of the Palestinian people.
