"The killing of Christians in Egypt this past Christmas by al-Qaida should be looked on as an attack on all Christians by one of the many Muslim led expansionists groups. Al-Qaida now blamed for this attack, based in Gaza, should be evidence enough that Gaza is out of control and should be classified as a terrorist haven with connections to Iran and now al-Qaida. The United Nations is always so quick to condemn Israel for any attempt to stop military and terrorist contraband, yet this evidence should help justify Israel's efforts.
The export of terror from Gaza to Egypt is a first that should not be overlooked. Most that goes on in this region is usually led by Iran. Any connection between Iran and al-Qaida would be a clear indication that Iran should be targeted as part of al-Qaida's global terrorist efforts, thus adding further justification of a NATO attack on Iran's nuclear facilities.
In the meantime Christians and Jews in the Middle East continue to be slaughtered and edged out of the region by a systematic ethnic-cleansing that the Western press chooses to ignore. Like many have said "political correctness will be the death of us all."
Egypt: Militant group in Gaza behind church attack

CAIRO -- An al-Qaida-linked group in Gaza was behind the New Year's Day suicide bombing that killed 21 Christians and wounded about a hundred outside a church in the Mediterranean port city of Alexandria, the country's interior minister announced Sunday.
Habib al-Adly said the shadowy, Gaza-based Army of Islam in Gaza was behind the attack, which sparked three days of Christian rioting in Cairo and several other cities. It was the deadliest attack against Christians in Egypt in more than a decade.
Security officials said an unspecified number of people have been detained in connection with the bombing but gave no more details. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to share the information with the media.
The Army of Islam is thought to have participated in the kidnappings of Israeli soldier Sgt. Gilad Schalit in 2006 and BBC journalist Alan Johnston, who was later released.
Late last year, Israel killed three members of the Army of Islam in separate airstrikes, alleging the men had planned to attack Israeli and American targets in Egypt's Sinai Peninsula.
