What I'm wondering is, are Muslims really bombing within other supposed Muslim countries because they are pissed at them, or is someone else bombing them clandestinely to gain the support of the Muslim countries in the war on terror?

Anything's plausible.

As I recall this Resort of Sharm Al-Sheik was Built by Isreal when they Occupied Sinai Peninsula in 1973 Yom Kippur War.


The Ghazala Gardens (the bombers had shot dead the security guard at the entrance to the hotel before detonating the bomb) has been a newer 4-star hotel.

The Movenpick Hotel (where the second car bomb exploded in a parking area) is also a newer hotel.

The third bomb detonated at a minibus parking lot in the Old Market (an area about four kilometers away from the main strip of hotels in Naama Bay) - most of these casualties were sitting at a nearby outdoor coffee shop.

An interesting and perhaps related breaking news story...




Man Holding Bomb Wounded by Blast in Egypt

CAIRO, Egypt Jul 24, 2005 — An explosive detonated as it was being carried by a man several miles from a tourist bazaar next the Pyramids of Giza on Sunday, police said. The man was severely injured.

Investigators were trying to determine whether the man was taking the explosive to the nearby tourist area of Kerdassa, a bazaar of souvenir shops near the Pyramids, a senior security official involved in the investigation said.

The device, which the man was carrying in a sack, apparently went off accidentally in the neighborhood of Kufr Tuhurmus, several miles from Kerdassa, the official said on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the probe.

An American was killed in the attack.


U.S. Embassy says American killed in Sharm el-Sheik bombings

The U-S Embassy in Cairo says an American citizen was among the dozens of people killed in the bombings at the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheik.

An Embassy spokesman says one of the dead was identified today as an American, but declined to give the victim's identity or gender.

But an Egyptian security official said the victim was a 27-year-old woman who was staying with her boyfriend in the resort. The official says she was wounded in the blasts and brought for treatment in Cairo, where she died.

This is going to sound really cold and I hope each of you will forgive me for saying it, but this is a step in the right direction.

When the countries that the terrorist are living in get fed up and go after them it will finally lead to a little more sanity on their part. When the middle east countries decide to stop terrorism they will not say, "You have rights that we will respect." No, they will round up the extremist and their familys and put bullets in the back of their heads. In the middle east there is no bill of rights and the idea of human rights is a joke. Torture is as common as soda pop.

It's a simple rule, you do not sh!t where you eat. Also keep in mind the old chinese rule, when you kill one you educate 100.

By attacking the homeland in which they were born, the terrorist turn every member of that society against them. They dig their own grave.

The only troubling part I find about this is, if I could figure this out, so could the enemies of the terrorists. What better way to go after your enemies then to turn the people they depend on against them? Someone trying to destroy the terrorist could commit acts in their name against the very people who have given them sustenence. Win the hearts and minds of the people and you have won the war, or atleast the most important part of it.

Ponder on this I will.

i have to say that i agree that everyone should take a stand again the terrorist,, but to round up there families and friends i don't agree with just because there are one bad person in a family or your friend is bad does not make all the rest bad,, i had friends who were there when the bombings took place ,, i have one who we still don't know where he is or if he is alive or dead,, this bombings in egypt was just plain wronge,, even if it was in gods name,, it was just plain wronge,, but the families of the terrorist are not nessasarily involved,,, they should not be punished for what the others do or did,, but this world would be a much better place if every one started standing up against these kinds of things and stop closing our eyes to it,, before it does turn into the big one so to speak as i too believe it is leading up to,,, our world and the people in it need everyones help,,, STAND UP AGAINST THESE THINGS PLZ

olice Seeks Pakistanis in Egypt Bombings
(by worldwatcher)


Egyptian police are searching for six Pakistani nationals that they believe are connected to the deadly bombings in Sharm El-Sheik. They men are believed to be in the age range of 20-30 and their pictures were being shown at various checkpoints around the city. Pakistani involvement would be unprecedented in Egypt and suggest a larger terror network.

Absolutely, just because one person is bad, doesn't make his family bad. That is an unfair assumption.

Wasn't that one of the reasons we overthrew Saddam? Because he was doing that exact same thing? Or did you approve of the way Saddam ran his country?

Egyptian police exchanged fire with armed "bedouin men". I guess the bedouins didn´t like being rounded up and questioned about the bombings...


Aljazeera.net: Egypt police clash with armed men

26 July 2005


Egyptian police have exchanged fire with armed men as they search for six Pakistanis suspected of involvement in deadly bombings in the Red Sea resort of Sharm al-Shaikh.

The Monday firefight with bedouin men erupted in the mountainous interior of the Sinai peninsula about 30km from the scene of Saturday's attacks on the coast, security officials said.

It came after police surrounded the nearby villages of Khurum and Rweissat in overnight raids, they said.

"Two Pakistanis had been staying there, and it is suspected that the bombs were assembled in this area," an intelligence source said.

Egypt sees no evidence so far of Al-Qaeda hand in resort attacks: PM (AFP)

Egyptian Prime Minister Ahmed Nazif said there was no evidence so far linking the Al-Qaeda terror network to the recent deadly bombings at the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh.

"Egypt has been the subject of a lot of terrorist acts. And they haven't been related to Al-Qaeda in any way in the past. So it would be a new thing if we see Al-Qaeda working in Egypt," Nazif told CNN.

Nazif also rejected a Washington Times editorial that said there was a "dangerous al Qaeda network in the Sinai."

"There is, so far, no evidence whatsoever of Al-Qaeda involvement" in the July 23 Sharm el-Sheikh attacks that left 67 dead and in another bombing in October in Taba, further north on the Sinai coast
