1. Morale: You don't f...k with big dogs

Mahmood from Iran is next...
2. Thanking G-d for blessings granted!
Nili Peres ,   Jerusalem   (05.02.11)
We (Jews, indeed all human beings) are commanded by G-d NOT to rejoice upon the death of our enemy, further it is Holocaust Memorial Day in Israel, and so, I for one, will keep my reaction subdued. However, as a Sephardi Jewish-American living in Jerusalem, I do believe that Psalms 118:15-16 and 19 are appropriate comments. They are: "The sound of joyous song & deliverance is in the tents of the righteous: 'The Right Hand of AdoShem performs deeds of valor. The Right Hand of Adoshem is exalted, the Right Hand of Adoshem performs deeds of valor.'" (...) "Open for me the gates of righteousness; I will enter them, I will give thanks unto G-d." I do believe with all my heart that it is just and right that at this time G-d has given over Osama Bin Laden to the Armed Forces of the United States of America. G-d Bless America and may a sure peace reign over the Earth.
3. He may be dead
Sagi   (05.02.11)
but his spirit lives on just as does the spirit of Salah a Din for the past 800 years. One human can be killed but it takes a lot more than that to kill his ideology. The spirit and ideology of Bin Laden will live on and he will immediately become a martyr, which in Islam means a hero, and his followers will denounce the whole world and proclaim that they will carry his torch and that in the end Islam will prevail. The problem is not to kill this or that person, the problem is to kill the deep and ingrained ideology of islam, it is an insurmountable task.
4. Give out sweets, cake and ice-cream.

8. I don't buy this story
Skeptic   (05.02.11)
First of all, the US always knew where Osama was. Even reporters knew where to find him just before 9-11. Osama was more useful as a boogie man so that they could enact all those Orwellian security measures in the US and Europe. Second, he was already a very sick man. It has been rumored he died of kidney disease years ago. Third, this announcement is suspiciously timely, with the controversy about the authenticity of the birth certificate, the plunging popularity of Obama, and all that. Who was just killed? Maybe one of Osama's doubles.

Ralph levy ,   Usa   (05.02.11)

16. My Congratulation to victims of 911
E.M Jordan is Pales ,   S.F   (05.02.11)

17. Extra-judicial assassination?
Stephen in New York   (05.02.11)

Rut Sof ,   Israel   (05.02.11)
I don't remember Israelis ever coming out and celebrating like this when any one of our enemies has met with his end via "targeted killing" Why are the Americans reacting like this?
24. Who knows?
David ,   Israel   (05.02.11)
Obama Bin Lying. Why would this great continuer of the Bushobama Drama suddenly de-prevaricate in public? Maybe he's dead; maybe not. Who know? Too many lies from the White House. Besides I thought 20 or 30% of Americans thought Israel took down the Trade Centre towers...
25. may his soul(?) rot in hell for all eternity
Jackson ,   Melbourne   (05.02.11)
and anyone who supports his views.
26. The world just became a better place
Avi ,   Israel   (05.02.11)
To the memory of all those who died in 9/11. Bin Laden just another in a long line of religious fanatics who kill in the name of God others who do not share his religious beliefs. Religion the biggest killer of man kind.
27. Walks like a duck
Jonah ,   BC Canada   (05.02.11)
First Obama is not a Muslim, and now Osama is not a Muslim. At least Osama was honest about his agenda. Which of the two will do more to further the grand jihad against the US in the end? If this story is true, it's good news anyhow.
28. Great
Hakim ,   Palestine   (05.02.11)
People will remember this come next election, and you will have President Obama for another four years...
29. And in the meantime the US arms Al Qaeda in Libya
Skeptic   (05.02.11)
The US and UK have been funding the M. Brotherhood and Al Qaeda for years. They use them for one reason or another and many are on the CIA payroll.
30. there was no word on the whereabouts of al-Zawahri
observer ,   Egypt   (05.02.11)
Officials said that bin Laden's body was handled in accordance with Islamic tradition. In the first place there is no specific Islamic tradition except burial not incineration like Israel did to Eichman's. Secondly, born Muslim does not impart Islam to a murderer. He was automatically excommunicated long long ago, there is no Islamic ceremony, if ever exist, needed to announce that.
