The world continues to search for ties to Al-Qaeda, and to ignore the much more important ideological ties among the mujahedin. From the New Duranty Times, aka the New York Times:
LONDON, April 10 “” A forthcoming government report concludes that the July 7 bombings in London were a low-budget operation carried out by four men who had no connection to Al Qaeda and who obtained all the information they needed from the Internet, The Observer reported Sunday.
According to The Observer, which said it obtained a leaked copy of the report, the attacks were “a simple and inexpensive plot” organized and executed by four British suicide bombers intent on martyrdom.
That is, Islamic martyrdom, based on Qur’an 9:111, which promises Paradise to those who “slay and are slain” for Allah.
