ACCORDING TO AUNTIE CORRESPONDENT Jane Hutcheon, reporting from Gaza for tonight's television news, the killing of Mr Rantissi will boost recruiting to Hamas's corps of suicide bombers.

That's one possibility. Ms Hutcheon offers no other. She offers no evidence either.

I suppose it's getting harder to tell which offices in Hamas count as suicide positions, and which are tenured.
