Are we passing out candy now?

All the major news outlets are reporting the "elimination" in Damascus of one of the world's most wanted terrorists:

car bomb in Damascus on Tuesday killed a senior military commander of the
Lebanese Shiite Muslim group Hizbullah, a Lebanese political source told
Reuters on Wednesday.

According to the al-Manar television channel, the man killed was Imad
Moughnieh, one of Hizbullah's founders and the organization's operational
commander. The channel blamed Israel([search]) for the assassination.

Witnesses had seen the body of a man taken from the scene of the blast in
the Syrian capital on Tuesday evening.

Moughnieh is believed to be the mastermind behind the attacks against Jewish
centers in Buenos Aires in 1994, as well as the kidnapping of a TWA airplane
in Lebanon([search]) in 1985 and the abduction of westerners in the country during the

The United States considers Moughnieh to be the man behind the bombing at
the American embassy in Beirut in and the attack against the Marines in 1994
headquarters in Lebanon in 1983, which killed over 200 Americans.

Is anyone in Israel or the US passing out candies or jumping up and down in the streets? Not quite...Israel Radio interviewed the widow of one of the Israeli officials murdered in the Buenos Aires Israeli Embassy bombing. She really didn't have much to say, other than to recall that dreadful day in 1994, and quietly say that some other terrorist will surely rise up to take Moughnieh's place.

Great speculation here as to how such an operation could have taken place in Damascus, of all places. Moughnieh's Pajero vehicle was blown up around midnight. He was one of the world's most hunted terrorists whose movements were reported to be as hidden as Osama Bin Laden's. Tomorrow, Hizbollah leader Nasrallah will preside over the funeral in Lebanon. Wouldn't want to be in charge of security arrangements at that event...


Every successful act of resistance

is a cause for celebration.

Collective punishment against Jews is A-OK according to Nasrallah

BEIRUT, Lebanon([search]) - The chief of Hezbollah vowed Thursday to retaliate against Israeli targets anywhere in the world after accusing the Jewish state of killing the militant Imad Mughniyeh in Syria.

Israel([search]) ordered its military, embassies and Jewish institutions overseas to go on alert Thursday, fearing revenge attacks for a car bomb that killed Mughniyeh — accused of masterminding dramatic attacks that killed hundreds of Americans in Lebanon in the 1980s.

Hezbollah and its Iranian backers blamed Israel but Israel denied involvement.
