I just wish you people remembered how some cheered in the streets while our innocents burned alive and jumped to their deaths.


You mean those Jewish fellas?

Why is it bad to celebrate the death of OBL as Americans young and old, but we all have to be tolerant of rabid Jihadist Muslims who dance in the streets when they kill Americans? Or pass celebratory pastries around after they murder a Jewish family in Israel?



If we wish to believe ourselves better than them, should we not act as such?

If we're going to stand on a high ground and denounce the actions of people should we later be seen preforming the same actions?

No human being should celebrate the death of another, even the Hitlers, Stalins and Bin Ladens of the world are human and are driven by all the same instincts and perspective that we all are. Born to different circumstances we all might have been on the other side of the fence: Anyone who believes in reincarnation probably was at one point.

I admit people were too quick to jump and believe that OBL is dead, but calling them disgusting and whatnot is downright mean when many of these people lost someone due to this man (supposedly). Some people like to find the good in things instead of the bad, they can't do much about the bad, so they like to live their lives not coming up with conspiracies about everything and making themselves paranoid. They trust the government because that's what they've been taught to do. While I find it weird that people are celebrating death (just something new to me...) I think it's their right to do as they please. Other countries are also rejoicing about this, so leave the Americans alone.

Again. WE DIDN'T CHEER THE DEATH OF AN INNOCENT MAN.


On the other hand, the Muslim world cheered the deaths of thousands of innocent Americans. and recently celebrated the death of the Murder of all but one 12 year old member of the Fogel Family in Israel.

NOT THE SAME THING.

Maybe not to some people, I don't see a difference.


I certainly don't recall muslims dancing and singing on 9/11, as I remember the entire world was holding vigils for us, even in the middle east. (or at least this is what was reported.

Are you all going to sing and dance when Bush meets his demise? It's only right that you do since he was no better than Osama.

Yeah, actually in some locations in the ME and elsewhere there were cheering crowds when the towers came down on 9/11

I guess some may have missed it.

I remember this.

And I'll never forget it.

Dancing in the streets to the murder of innocent people. INNOCENT people.

Meanwhile you and the OP condemn Americans for celebrating the death of a murdering terrorist.

Who's disgusting?

Oh, don't get me wrong, I don't doubt that some people were cheering: just like some are cheering now.

I just think we as human beings need to rise above such a grotesque display.

I understand the difference, but wouldn't it have been better to promote the values of the west that we are above celebrating death at all. I can understand people being pleased that this man has finally been dealt with, but the jingoism that some people are displaying isn't a great advert for the west. Lets aspire for better than mob mentality.

as not only an american but a native new yorker I can tell you the first thing that came to mind was basically, "ha, we got you you rotten......"

don't forget those lovely and considerate wonderful people in his neck of the woods celebrating 9/11 by waving flags and cheering

I'll never forget THAT

everybody who's willing to celebrate somebody's death, regardless of nationality or affiliation.

Is that so hard to understand?

I can't believe that there are actually people who believe this fairy tale. Are Americans just THAT brainwashed? I mean think this one out people, it's not that difficult!

We ARE better.

We don't celebrate the death of innocent people.

They DO.

For 10 years we sit quietly waiting to hear some news.

Many gave up and thought this day would never come.

After 10 years of war and thousands of lives lost it is somehow inappropriate to celebrate the very small victory of killing this a-hole?

Tell me, oh better than everyone-one, how should we celebrate victories such as this?

You're making a fallacious argument by tying two unrelated events together. Bin Laden is not responsible for the Fogel murders.

What about the people that cheered when America was bombing Iraq and killing thousands of Civilians?

No, he isn't.

I was illustrating that the people in Gaza have TWICE danced in the streets over the murder of innocent people.

9/11 was one, the Fogel family was the other.

Somehow you were the only one who didn't catch that.
