Interestingly enough, by murdering a muslim diplomat, they are only hurting their cause, instead of strengthening it... Let's hope they (the terrorists) continue to be morons when it comes to tactics......
Just as the terror attacks in London will only garner more support for British involvement...what dunderheads....
Yes Gaz, those Islamic terrorists are really dumb aren't they.

This captive was the highest profile person they had ever captured. To kill him on a day where the worlds attention will not even bother noticing it doesnt make sense. Both the murder of Egypt's ambassador and the London bombings are claimed by Al-Qaeda. If they are organized, why did they waste their chances of major publicity by murdering him today? No one will see it or discuss it.

Impecible logic Subz. Their actions rcently would seem counterproductive to their stated goals. One has to wonder if the left hand knows what the right hand is doing, or if the London attacks were really pulled off by Al-Qaeda.

subz: it makes more sense if you don't assume there is an organized religious crusade, and see it as power hungry little mobs, each vying for more prestige and power.
