Al Qaeda has now organized a special Palestine Gaza unit. I’m certain to help the peace process no doubt. How can any good come from this? Of course, if you think killing Israeli’s is good, then I guess this is good news to you.


“Tuesday, August 2, Al Qaeda claimed the establishment of a Gaza branch called “Al Qaeda-Palestine, Jihad Brigades in the Border Land.” (This is an al Qaeda locution meaning warfront.) The announcement, accompanied by a video tape, appeared on Websites normally reserved for releases on major al Qaeda strikes, such as the Madrid, London and Saudi bombing attacks and Abu Musab al-Zarqawi’s operations in Iraq. It is therefore to be taken seriously. The statement came out three days after the DEBKAfile exclusive disclosure of al Qaeda’s purported theological grounds for attacking Israel, as expounded in its new monthly magazine, From the Tip of the Camel’s Hump.”

I wonder how much “peace” this new group will bring with their Jihad to Gaza….

This stuff really sounds like propaganda.
It sounds like someone posing as Al Qaeda to encourage the Israelis to stop the pullout. There's no reason for Muslims to attack as the Israelis are pulling out of Gaza. It does not benefit them.

Debka mentions that Al Aqeda has a monthly magazine that they publish and link to an article that they did on an issue of the magazine.

In that article, they chastise the Jews for not fighting hard enough or sacrificing enough for the land of Israel and saying they are willing to " break the covenant between God and Abram, which awarded the Land of Israel to the Jewish people for all generations" link

What the hell kind of talk is that for Al Qaeda who wishes to expell the Jews from that land and don't even recognize the existance of Israel?

It really sounds like propaganda by Israelis who are pretending to be Al Qaeda and want to encourage their fellow Jews to fight to retain that land.

It seems like a reasonable event-ie I believe it.

Hmmm, plaestines hate Isrealies and Americans (for supporting them) and Al Q feels the same. I fully expect them to start providing arms and explosives to be used in Terrorist actions.

It is almost funny that Isreal is pulling out of Gaza (land they got while attack in war) and they are still trying to starting fighting. If the war is over and you won and the emeny is leaving-don't give them excuses to stay-let them go.

Yes, I have read that they are fighting to make it look like they won the fighting-insted of the truth, Isreal deciding to pull out. Maybe they should forgo the propaganda and take back control of the land peacefully.

Here is a JPOST (subscription) article

Shin Bet checking claims of new al-Qaida cell in Gaza

The Shin Bet (Israeli Security Agency) is investigating reports that al-Qaida has successfully set up a Palestinian affiliate in Gaza known as the Jihad Brigades of the Border Country, sources said.


In May, PA officials told The Jerusalem Post that a new terrorist group linked to al-Qaida had started operating in the Gaza Strip. The group was called Allah's Brigades and consisted of former Hamas and Islamic Jihad members. The PA officials said it launched its first attack on soldiers near Rafah, wounding four.

Last November, Jamal Abdel al-Aqel, a Palestinian with Canadian citizenship, was sentenced to four years in prison by the Erez Military Court for planning to target a senior Israeli government official and members of the American and Canadian Jewish communities.

His arrest generated headlines as it was the first time that Hamas had resorted to using al-Qaida-like tactics, plotting attacks against Israelis and Jews. Had the attacks occurred, every effort was to have been made to erase any traces linking them to Hamas, which planned to claim responsibility in the name of al-Qaida.

In April 2004, Zacharia Zubeidi, leader of the Aksa Martyrs Brigades in Jenin, claimed that al-Qaida elements were seeking to carve out a bridgehead in the West Bank and Gaza Strip by exploiting the anarchy in the PA.

Apparently they are trying to get permission to build a casino and resort in Gaza but I hadn't heard about it until you mentioned it.


An Israeli businessman said on Monday that he has been conducting preliminary talks with Palestinian officials to build a casino in a Gaza settlement slated for evacuation, after Israel pulls out of the territory next month.

Shmuel Flatto-Sharon, a former Knesset member, said the plan was to turn the Elei Sinai settlement in northern Gaza into a resort town, with a hotel and a casino.

“It’s amazing there, it’s paradise,” he said. “The Palestinian Authority will help us obtain permits for a pool and a casino.”

I'm not sure whether this is a good idea or not.
I can see Israel claiming they have to send troops into there to protect the guests of the hotel.
