Death of a terrorist: : Top Hezbullah terrorist Imad Mughniyeh killed in Damascus blast

Death of a militant!
According to WIkipedia,
Imad Fayez Mugniyah (also spelt Moughnieh) (Arabic: عماد فايز مغنية‎; born December 7, 1962 killed Feb 12, 2008 ) was a senior member of the Hezbollah militant organization. He is alternatively described as the head of its security section, a senior intelligence official and as a founder of the organization.
So it seems that Mr. Mughnieh was a "militant" - like sufragettes and the Salvation Army. Moughniyeh was apparently a chief ideologist and spirtual leader of the Hezbollah. He believed in blowing people up and kidnapping them - that was his religion and his ideology.
Imad Mughniyeh  (pronounced Mourrniyeh, spelled Moughnieh, Mugnieh...) was one of the worst "militants" (as Wikipedia calls them) to walk the face of the earth. He was responsible for involuntarilty shortening the lifespans ("murder" is not PC either) of numerous people, including Jews in Argentina and US marines and embassy personnel in Lebanon. He was probably involved in some way in the murder of Rafiq Hariri.
Israeli covert operations teams have refrained from hurting this paragon because of the clear possibility that Hezbollah teams based in Ciudad del Este and elsewhere in Argentina, or Hezbollah in Lebanon, would take revenge as they took revenge for the killing of a senior Hezbollah terrorist (ooops - MILITANT) when they hit the Jewish center in Argentina.
Moughnieh has a distinguished record as a terrorist (ooops - MILITANT) He is known to have been the mastermind behind the attacks against Jewish centers in Buenos Aires in1994, as well as the kidnapping of a TWA airplane in Lebanon in 1985 and the abduction of westerners in the country during the 1980s. Moughnieh was also most likely the man behind the bombing at the American embassy in Beirut in and the attack against the Marines headquarters in Lebanon in 1983, which killed over 200 Americans.
Today Moughniyeh has died, or perhaps it was yesterday. It appears that someone has decided to send Moughnieh to his reward. His career was terminated in a car bomb blast. It is unlikely to have been Israel, though Hezbollah automatically blamed Israel of course. It is not clear that Israel has covert operations abilities of that kind in Damascus. If they did, they would focus on other more urgent  targets such as Khaled Meshal who heads the Hamas, or Ramadan Shelah who heads the Palestinian Islamic Jihad. Another report about the demise of Moughniyeh is here.
Is Israel really trying to send a message, or did the Syrian Army Intelligence decide that Moughnieh had outlived his usefulness? Perhaps he knew too much about the murder of Rafiq Hariri ?
