I’ve long maintained that Israel is a “testing ground” for terrorism, just as Spain was Hitler’s testing ground for weapons during the Spanish Civil War. Don’t fight terrorism in Israel and it will spread.
September 11th was proof. So was Bali, Kenya, Yemen, and more examples too numerous to list. Now Hamas is urging Iraq to use suicide bombers against American and British troops.
The militant group Hamas, which has carried out scores of suicide bombings in Israel, urged Iraq on Friday to copy its tactics and send thousands of attackers with explosives strapped to their bodies into a battle against American and British troops in Iraq.
“We call on the Arabs and Muslims to burn the land under the feet of the American invaders, especially our brothers in Saudi Arabia because this war is not against Iraq, it’s against the Islamic nation,” Hamas leader Abdel Aziz Rantisi told a rally in this impoverished shanty encampment.
I hate it when my predictions appear to come true, even when they’re obvious ones to call.
