Usually, when we hear reports of a terrorist bomb going off, it brings feelings of dread and anger. Even if the attack is not perpetrated on U.S. soil, we know the fear and anguish such attacks cause. Besides this, we hate anytime innocent civilians are murdered. But today is different.
Today, I get to report that the bomber was killed while making the bomb. For you liberals who will mourn this killer’s death, stop reading and go to your safe space. This might have a few trigger words.
Hamas field commander Muhammad Walid al-Quqa, 37, died Sunday from injuries sustained while “setting up” something, according to a news release from Hamas’ al-Qassam Brigade obtained by The Times of Israel. Apparently, when you’re a bomb maker for the militant group, accidentally blowing yourself up before you can blow other people up is just an accepted hazard of the job
Haaretz identified al-Quqa as a Gaza explosives expert and reported the deadly blast occurred at a warehouse used to assemble bombs.
It is very likely that this bomb was being built to be used against Israel. It is as likely that the bomb was going to be used against citizens. This means that by God’s grace, this man was killed making a murder device.
No oppression can justify the murder of the innocent. No amount of revenge can explain the killing of children. The killing of mothers.
We are told that these monsters are doing what they are doing because of the atrocities committed by Western military. Maybe, but, how is it any better to commit even more heinous crimes in response?
Murder is murder, no matter the purpose.
