A global holiday? World leaders rejoice Osama’s death

People are having all kinds of responses to Osama bin Laden’s long-awaited death—here’s some Christian folks riffing on it and here’s a Jewish take on Osama’s demise. Better, the BBC has a good roundup of what world leaders are saying.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu

This is a resounding triumph for justice, freedom and the values shared by all democratic nations fighting shoulder to shoulder in determination against terrorism.

New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg

After September 11, 2001, we gave our word as Americans that we would stop at nothing to capture or kill Osama bin Laden. After the contribution of millions, including so many who made the ultimate sacrifice for our nation, we have kept that word.

The killing of Osama Bin Laden does not lessen the suffering that New Yorkers and Americans experienced at his hands, but it is a critically important victory for our nation - and a tribute to the millions of men and women in our armed forces and elsewhere who have fought so hard for our nation.

New Yorkers have waited nearly 10 years for this news. It is my hope that it will bring some closure and comfort to all those who lost loved ones on September 11, 2001.
