Another stupid online poll

03.23.04

Another one of those meaningless, un-scientific polls that pisses me off beyond all logical reasoning: Canada.com is asking people whether they believe Israel’s assassination of Sheik Yassin is justified. At the moment, 45% said no.

That shocks me. I can understand skepticism about the point of taking out Yassin, or fear of the consequences. But to ask whether the assassination of a terrorist, responsible for thousands of innocent deaths, was justified? I can’t imagine what arguments the 45% who voted no could possibly have (other than the standard “well, Israel did it so it must be wrong”).

Who could possibly disagree with an assassination? Has murder become so commonplace in Israel and the occupied territories?
