The Murder Of Osama bin Laden
Convenient euphemisms like "targeted assasination" aside, the only accurate term for the extrajudicial killing of al Queda militant Osama bin Laden is murder.
Not only will this pointless murder of a merely symbolic figure perpetuate the cycle of violence, it will also be a serious blow to al Queda's moderate wing - whom knowledgable observers credit with maintaining a ceasefire in the United States for nearly a decade.
To be sure, al Queda and the United States have mutual greviances. The way to resolve those issues is at the negotiating table, not with missiles and gunfire. Peace is made with enemies, not friends. Violence merely begets more violence.
Particularly in light of continued Israeli home construction in Jerusalem, the latest news from the Middle East is devastating to those of us who yearn for a two-state solution that will finally put an end to the conflict in the Middle East.
