EU Slams Rantissi Killing as Unlawful, Provocative

STRAFFAN, Ireland (Reuters) - Israel's killing of top Hamas leader Abdel-Aziz al-Rantissi was unlawful and "not conducive to lowering tension," European Union foreign policy chief Javier Solana said Saturday.

"The European Union has consistently condemned extrajudicial killings," Solana said in a statement issued during talks between EU and Asian foreign ministers in Ireland.

When was the last time the EU came out and slammed a Palestinian suicide bomber or condemned Hamas for strapping explosives to a teenager?

Sometimes it seems like suicide bombings in Israel have become so routine that they're hardly even news anymore. In newspapers they rank right up there with the weather reports.

We wonder why Israel does respond more often and with greater force, yet look at the criticism they get for killing just one terrorist...

They put out some lukewarm protests after the Ashdod attack, I think. Lynn B of In Context caught a few the last time they actually criticized the terrorists instead of the terrorist-killers.

I hate them right now, so don't look to me for much help.

Tony Blair just called Israel's killing of Rantissi "terrorism". What an asshole.
