molester/murderers. How many Americans would feel horrified at the death of achild murderer?In what way is Bin Laden any better? We may not officially be able to tag him as achild murderer, but he stands as the worst case against monotheism, a dreadful,malicious mass murderer whose political ideology and entire world view washellbent on vengeance for entire segments on Earth that had nothing to do withhim.I can say with a straight face that Bin Laden was your enemy. If you don't know that, then you either don't believe in enemies or don't know one when you seeone. He called for the death of you and everyone around you. If some idiot asks ina sarcastic tone if you have ever been threatened by a Muslim terrorist, you cananswer in all honesty "every day.
For guidance, we might look at both the religious and non-religious take on thesituation. For the atheistic take, Christopher Hitchens, in his argument with PaulEdwards, who stated, "

As for the more standard religious practice, I know the Jews cheer like crazy whenever the name "Haman" is said on Purim. Haman was the first man whowanted to wipe out all of the Jews. They hung him on the gallows he hadprepared for them.Being a little happy this guy is gone has some merit.
