Speaking of The Belgravia Dispatch 

....Gregory Djerejian appears to have culled new operational orders for the Zahal from the Israeli Media. Apparently, according to Greg's latest entry, Sheik Yassin, the intellectual Godfather of the Hamas terrorist movement, is to be hunted down and executed by a special team from the IDF.

Not that it couldn't happen to a nicer guy, of course.

Despite Djerejian's forebodings about major violence in Palestine in the wake of Yassin's assassination, I fear that Sharon may have no other choice in the Israeli scheme of things. The Hamas, with Yassin's blessings, have upped the ante to the use of women, married women with children-mind you, as suicide bombers. The Israeli body politic may have turned a corner and may demand of Sharon that he decimate the Hamas once and for all.

Wretchard has a good take on the brutalization of the War on Terror in his latest effort in Thursday's Belmont Club, which touches on Yassin's crowd as an example of the "march to Total War". A must read, in my humble opinion.
