Hamas, Fatah Compete for Killing Credit

Hamas and the supposedly "moderate" terrorist group led by Mahmoud Abbas/Abu Mazen are competing for credit over who was responsible for the recent fatal terror attack in Dimona.

Fatah earlier claimed "credit," but now Hamas is claiming "credit" for itself, although while some spokesmen insist Hamas was responsible, others insist Hamas was not responsible.

Either way, both Hamas and Fatah are irresponsible. (Sorry, we can't resist an occasional sick pun.).

The following is excerpted from The Jerusalem Post.

Hamas: Dimona bombers came from Hebron

Israel Police decided to increase its presence in main cities and crowded places, fearing that more attacks will follow Monday's suicide bombing in Dimona.

According to Israel Radio, the alert level was raised to "C" which is one level below the highest level of emergency.

Police said many more police officers will be patrolling the southern, Jerusalem and Tel Aviv districts.

Security officials also said Tuesday that the amount of intelligence alerts have increased considerably since the attack.

In a statement issued early Tuesday by the office of spokeswoman Dana Perino, the White House said it strongly condemned the bombing.

"We extend condolences to the family of the innocent victim killed in this brutal attack and wish those wounded a rapid recovery," the White House said.

"We also condemn those terrorist groups, including Hamas, which condone these horrific actions. We call upon the leaders of the Palestinian Authority, who condemned this attack, to redouble their efforts to act against terrorism."

[Double zero effort is still zero effort. Before the Palestinian Authority can begin acting against terrorism, it has to stop promoting terrorism.]

On Monday, Reuters reported that Hamas's armed wing, Izaddin Kassam, claimed responsibility for Monday's suicide attack which killed a woman and wounded some 40 other people, saying that he bombers came from Hebron and not the Gaza Strip.

However, Hamas's representative in Lebanon, Osama Hamdan, denied the report, saying the group was not linked to the bombing.

[Obviously, at least one of them is lying.]

Defense officials told The Jerusalem Post, however, there was a growing opinion the terrorist duo had indeed come from the West Bank and had infiltrated the Negev via the 26-km. gap in the southern section of the West Bank security barrier.

[Of course, Israel will be condemned as it acts to close that hole.]

Israel pledged to hit back at the terrorist organizations that dispatched two suicide bombers on Monday to Dimona, where one blew himself up.

[And Israel will of course be condemned when it retaliates against the terrorists.]

Also Monday, Egyptian security forces claimed to have apprehended a Gazan, armed with a bomb, after he had infiltrated Egypt's side of Rafah.

[One of many.]

A number of terrorist groups claimed responsibility for Monday's attack in Dimona.

Fatah's Aksa Martyrs Brigades claimed responsibility for planning the attack, saying it had been in the works for about a month. In a press conference convened by the group, the two bombers were named as Musa Arafat, from Khan Yunis in the Gaza Strip, a member of the Abu Ali Mustafa Brigades - the armed wing of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, and Aksa operative Luai Al Aghwani from Gaza.

[How likely is it that the Palestinian Arab terrorist groups will ever stop competing over who can murder more innocent Jews?]

Muslims Against Sharia condemn the murderers responsible for the homicide bombing in Dimona as well as degenerate perpetuation of the culture of death in Gaza.

Our prayers are with the victims of this atrocity. We send our condolences to their loved ones.

May the homicide bomber rot in hell for eternity. May his accomplices and animals who celebrated this horrendous act join him soon!
