Hamas Politburo Chief ,Khaled Mashaal, demands West 'recognize atrocity' of al-Qaeda head's killing, burial at sea. 'There are moral rules and the shedding the blood of Arabs and Muslims by Americans is unacceptable,' he says
Hamas Politburo Chief Khaled Mashaal called on the West Thursday to "recognize the atrocity" of the assassination of al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, and his burial at sea.
"Arabs and Muslims are human beings and the West should treat them with dignity, regardless of whether they are supporters or opponents of Osama bin Laden," he said.
Hamas attracted verbal fire over the recent week for condemning the arch-terrorist's death and calling him a "Shahid" (martyr). "There are moral rules to follow and the shedding the blood of Arabs and Muslims by Americans or others is unacceptable," Mashaal said.
