I’m going out on a limb here and assuming these attacks in Egypt and Lebanon today are the work of jihadists. In the last couple of weeks they have kidnapped and executed an Arab ambassador, kidnapped an envoy from another Moslem nation, twice attacked areas of London with heavy Moslem populations, bombed the capital of Lebanon and done the same at a resort in Egypt. The targets, which include restaurant, nightclub and resort areas, were all sure to result in death or injury to lots of “moderate” Moslems. How long before these moderate Moslems realize that these troglodytes are as big a threat to them as to “the West”? Or perhaps a better question – when will their mullahs do something about it?
At least two large explosions rocked the Red Sea tourist resort of Sharm el-Sheik (search) on the southern tip of the Sinai Peninsula late Friday, and a hotel was heavily damaged, witnesses said.
