HAMAS SPIRITUAL LEADER SHEIKH AHMAD YASSIN TOLD THE JORDANIAN ISLAMIST WEEKLY AL-SABIL THAT THE NUMBER OF DEAD IN LAST WEEK'S JERUSALEM BUS BOMBING WAS 'ACCORDING TO THE WILL OF ALLAH. YOU FIRE A BULLET WITHOUT KNOWING WHETHER ONE OR TWO, THREE OR 100 ARE HIT. [IN CONTRAST], IN THE ATTACK IN TEL AVIV BEFORE THE JERUSALEM ATTACK ONLY ONE WAS KILLED, EVEN THOUGH WE WANTED MORE [DEAD].' (AL-SABIL, JORDAN, 8/27/03)
