A Lebanese newspaper published a claim of responsibility for the bombings in Egypt last week. The claim was made by Al Qaida"s media office, and sent by email to the independent newspaper. Israel had said previously they believed Al Qaida was responsible.
BEIRUT, Lebanon - A Lebanese newspaper published on Friday a statement purportedly from al-Qaida claiming responsiblity for deadly bombings in Egypt"s Sinai peninsula. It was the fifth separate claim in the attack and could not be verified.

The statement, allegedly issued by al-Qaida"s media office and signed "International Islamic Front," was e-mailed Thursday night to Sada al-Balad, an independent newspaper, which published it on the front page Friday.

At least 34 people died when car bombs targeting Israeli tourists in Egypt exploded Oct. 7 at the Taba Hilton and two bungalow campgrounds on the Sinai Peninsula, across the border from Israel. Victims included Egyptians, Israelis, Italians and Russians.

Many groups have already claimed to be behind these attacks including some who say they are affiliated with Al Qaida. Many of these claims are difficult to confirm, but weather they are directly behind it or not, Al Qaida, and Islamic fundamentalism can certainly be held responsible.

Al-Qaeda has been taking responsibility for alot of incidents, how can we be sure that it is really them and not some other terrorist group?

Yes, Al Qaida has claimed responsibility for alot of events. More often the not, some unheard of organization claims responsibilty in the Name of Al Qaida. There's a bunch of them scattered around, there's the Al Qaida in Europe, there's Al Qaida in the Arabian penninsula, the Abu Hafs Al Masyri Brigades.

If you ask me, most of these groups aren't in the very least Al Qaida, but they simpathize with the cause. Maybe someday, those who are claiming responsibility without actually doing something will.
