After the triple suicide bombing in Taba at an Egyptian resort frequented by Israelis, Andy McCarthy notes the potential for a new front in the terror wars: Egypt. The Islamofascist nutters have hated the secular regime for decades and various Islamowacko groups come from Egypt. McCarthy notes that Hosni Mubarak, semi-benign dictator of Egypt for the past 25 years, is reportedly in poor health.
And here's the ultimate issue:
There has for many years, and particularly since 9/11, been a tendency in the American media, the European press, and the Muslim world to distinguish militant Islam's anti-American terrorism from its assiduous efforts to annihilate Israel — as if Hamas suicide bombers were somehow rationally severable from al Qaeda suicide bombers even though they all draw from the same well. It was inevitable that the dynamic of this war would make a mockery of this delusion. Egypt is a logical place for that light to dawn.
