A leaflet, distributed in the past days in West Bank and Jordan claims Al Qaeda’s West Bank’s military wing behind the attack. Yes, that’s right, an organization calling itself ‘The Brigades of the showdown in Jerusalem’. Yes, that is the best they could come up with, but don’t blame them – the best names are already taken by Hamas and Hizb Allah.

The group also claims to be in the process preparing additional attacks:

The claim appeared Monday in a leaflet circulated in Jordan and the West Bank announcing that the shooting of the two Israeli policemen was al Qaeda’s first operation “on the West Bank” and there were more to come.

The victims were David Rabinovich, 50 from Rosh Ha’ayin and Yehezkiel Ramzarkar, 42, from Maale Ephraim.

The pamphlet details the mechanics and timing of the lethal ambush: “Our team waylaid the Israeli security vehicle on Highway 90 and killed its passengers.” It also revealed that the killers set out on their mission immediately after Osama bin Laden’s last tape was aired by Al Jazeera Saturday “to carry out his orders.”

It seems to me that Al Qaeda is about to bring chaos again the West Bank citizens, who until now live in relative peace. The Palestinians should do something about those guys, otherwise they are on their way to ‘Defensive Shield 2’.

  1. Let me say – with all seriousness and no sarcasm here – it was worth posting this piece of news for us to agree on something.

  2. Boulos says:

    I have to agree with you on this. Al-qaeda has never cared for the Palestinian cause but merely uses it as a pawn in their grand anti-colonial chess game. If Al-qaeda were to get a stronghold in either Gaza or the West Bank it would do nothing but harm to both Israeli’s and Moderate Palestinians.
