I have no words

Hamas has sent Elaph and Reuters statements mourning the death of Zarqawi. According the statement to Reuters, Hamas announced that Zarqawi is "martyr of the (Muslim Arab) nation".

Elaph reports demonstrators in Gaza demanding revenge for Zarqawi.

What can I say? I'm disgusted.

***********************************
UPDATE
Three IAF deputies paid their condolences Friday to Zarqawi's family. Mohammad Abu Fares told his Friday congregation that Zarqawi was a mujahid (holy warrior).

UGH.

p.s. if they called him a martyr of the Muslim Arab nation, does that mean they had a little party back in November when Zarqawi killed 60 people in Amman?

does that make the government's latest claims about Hamas planning attacks in Jordan any more legitimate?

things that make you go hmm...

Hamas has issued a denial about mourning Zarqawi. From A.P.:

Sami Abu-Zuhri, a Hamas spokesman, said on Friday that "Hamas did not issue any statement in this regard."
He also said that Hamas "reiterates its supportive position to all liberation movements and foremost the Iraqi liberation movement, for which Zarqawi was one of the symbols in the face of the American occupation."

So in other words, we don't officially mourn him but we like and respect him and think he was an all-around great kinda guy. Sigh.

The usual vascillation. Nothing about the fact that he murdered hundreds if not thousands of innocent people. Apparantly, Abu Zuhri doesn't think that is relevant.

I don't get it. The IAF actually supports Hamas? AFTER the Amman bombings and AFTER Hamas has come out to show 'respect' for a murderer like Zarqawi?

Oh, I get it, the IAF probably thinks that ordinary Jordanians deserve to be blown up in the middle of weddings. After all, the bride wasn't covered from head to toe. Haraam!

I dont know if Hamas has anything to do with alzarqawi or the IAF, I see no relation.
the comments that I read above are all against alzarkawi : after all he had a totlly wrong understanding of everything.
I dont think anyone should be sad for alzarkawi death.
