Sheikh Yassin vs. Rachel Corrie

Shahed Amanullah the editor-in-chief of alt.muslim writes an article in the Daily Star of Bangladesh titled "Why are Muslims so 'shocked and awed' by Yassin's assassination?"

This is dubbed by Niraj as probably the most sober perspective by a Muslim writer on the killing of Hamas 'spiritual' leader Sheik Ahmed Yassin.

Shahed concludes:

Yassin's death makes it clear that violent opposition to the occupation will ultimately fail. The tactic of suicide bombing should be buried along with him. If we are to see real progress towards the restoration of Palestinian rights rather than a march towards self-destruction, then Palestine will need more Rachel Corries and fewer Sheikh Yassins.
