Extremist Egyptian analyst blames Israel for Sinai terror attacks

'SHARM EL-SHEIKH, Egypt - Less than 24 hours after terrorists killed at least 88 people in attacks on the Sinai resort town of Sharm el- Sheikh, Egyptian sources claimed that Israel was responsible for the deadly bombings.

The claims were apparently based on the fact that most of the victims were Egyptian nationals."
So is anyone still wondering why terrorism finds so much support or why it will continue to spread across the globe.
And I can just see the glee in the al-Jazeera reporters as they conducted these interviews.

I went to the english al-jezeera and did a search with the name mentioned in that story: Ala Hasnin, but it did not return anything. I was wondering if some of my Arabic speaking reader would also conduct a search on the arabic side and try and find that report?

Thank you Fayrouz, unfortunately I'm not in a happy mood right now. not to mention the current situation, for which I have like the theories, but also the situation in Cuba. things are not good, there has been a fresh round of arrest of the opposition leaders, and we have been seeing reports on TV of the regime conducting military exercises. Not a pretty picture. They were just hit by a hurricane and the regime is busy mobilizing to repress the people, lest they revolt. There is not water no electricity, no food or medicine, and the regime is mobilizing it most powerful repressive units to beet people down even further. If I could only reach out to them, so they do not feel so isolated and they could know that we support them and there yearning for freedom and a decent life.
