Referring to the assassination of Hamas leader Abdel Aziz al-Rantissi, British Foreign Minister Jack Straw said:
|"The British government has made it repeatedly clear that so-called targeted assassinations of this kind are unlawful, unjustified and counter-productive."|
What is most perplexing to me is the fact that the wider Israeli public has not yet wakened up to the last of these categorisations by Mr Straw - "counter-productive". Wherever Sharon is leading the Israeli people it is clearly not to a future with ANY prospect of security and peace.
