It’s all over the airwaves. This morning we received confirmation that Abu Musab al-Zarqawi was killed in an air raid Wednesday night. Many are hailing his death as a significant victory over terrorism. On Today in LA, the news show I watch before work every morning, they went to the streets of Los Angeles to get the reactions of people like you and me. What shocked me more than anything was one woman who seemingly rejoiced in this man’s death.
My question, putting aside for a moment the hard work and dedication of all those who have played a role in protecting this country and trying to stabilize Iraq, is should we be rejoicing because of this man’s death?
I guess the real question on my mind is should Christian’s ever rejoice in the death of others? What do you think?
