An obscure militant group based in Egypt’s North Sinai region claimed responsibility over the weekend for a cross-border attack that killed an Israeli soldier last week. The claim called fresh attention to the uphill struggle the newly formed Egyptian government is facing to control the restive Sinai region.If not terrorists, what are the members of "Supporters of the Holy Places" the group that has claimed credit for the attack? To claim that the attack was in retaliation for the idiotic anti-Islam movie just adds insult to the injury.
With condemnation of Jews a near daily occurrence in the Muslim world, killers like the Supporters of the Holy Place have a place, but it's in hell without the 72 virgins promised to them by their Islamist teachers.
Well, that's what I think.
