The founder of Hamas called for terror attacks against Israel to retaliate for last week’s U.S. cruise missile attacks on targets in Sudan and Afghanistan. “By attacking Israel, we are harming America,” Sheik Ahmed Yassin said at a rally in the Gaza Strip. The demonstrators trampled on U.S. and Israeli flags and chanted their support for Osama bin Laden, the Saudi millionaire living in Afghanistan whom the United States blames for the recent terror bombings of the U.S. embassies in East Africa.
