Hamas co-founder dies after firearm accident

A co-founder of the terror group Hamas died Tuesday, three weeks after accidentally shooting himself in the face while cleaning his weapon, an official said. Imad al-Alami, 62, was "examining his personal weapon in his home" Jan. 9 when the gun went off and a bullet struck him in the face, Hamas said.

Hamas initially announced al-Alami died of natural causes, dispelling rumors he'd committed suicide or was murdered. However, the group later admitted an accident had actually caused al-Alami's death.

Leader of para-military organization doesn't do basic gun safety?

Like a Prime Minister of the Retort's Favorite Country once said about the Arab World in the 1950s .... "Arabs? Zero plus zero plus zero."

It took him so long to die because it wasnt a vital organ.
