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”).
