2012-08-06 22:51

Jerusalem - Israel on Monday dismissed a claim by Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood that it was in any way involved in a deadly attack on a police station in Sinai a day earlier in which 16 policemen were killed.

"Even the person who says this when he looks at himself in the mirror does not believe the nonsense he is uttering," Foreign Ministry spokesperson Yigal Palmor said.

The Muslim Brotherhood had said that the attack "can be attributed to Mossad", referring to the Israeli intelligence agency.

    Why would Israel do such a thing? Ludicrous.

      Sunday night's terror attack at Kerem Shalom highlighted the more severe ramifications of the upheaval in the Arab world: Salafi terrorists belonging to global jihad, arms smuggling from Sinai, the motivation to embarrass Egypt and to turn Israel and Egypt against each other. The incident also indicated that the jihadist terrorists, for whom Sinai serves as a safe haven, plan to ignite the region by creating a situation whereby the Egyptian army appears to be involved in an attack on Israel. The terrorists apparently planned to take advantage of the initial shock their infiltration into Israel could have caused to kidnap a soldier or citizen.

    The MB will have to realize that there is another deadly and murderous strand of Islam in the Area not just themselves. This terrorists group that wants control of the border with Israel as to be able to fulfill their religious duty (death) and gain entry in to paradise. Eventually Islam will self destruct as violence and murder has not worked for any group in human history - not for the Greeks, Romans, Ottomans, Nazis, communists or apartheid.

    I would look closer to home for this one. It seems as though someone is trying to entice friction and warfare between Israel and Egypt.
