'Palestinians' plotting terror attack in Sinai

WorldNetDaily is reporting that 'Palestinians' are plotting a terror attack in the area of Sharm-el-Sheikh, a resort in the southern Sinai desert that is popular with Israelis and other foreigners. Some of you may recall that in 2004, an Egyptian charter plane crashed on takeoff from Sharm-el-Sheikh, killing 148 French tourists (including a former co-worker of mine from New York and his entire family). An organization calling itself the "Advocates of Truth" took 'credit' for that crash (sorry, my link for that article no longer works), which was suspected to be a terror attack.

Egypt is tracking a terror cell inside its country it says includes Palestinians from the Gaza Strip seeking to carry out a large scale attack in the Sinai desert, Egyptian security officials told WND.

The Egyptian officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, said there is information a group of terrorists entered the country last month and is seeking to carry out a series of bombings in the Sinai's Sharm el-Sheik region. Sharm el-Sheik is a Sinai resort spot popular with Israeli and foreign tourists.

The officials say they believe the terror cell, consisting of 12-18 members, includes militants from the Persian Gulf and Sudan and is backed up by Bedouin Egyptians in the Sinai. The cell, the officials say, also consists of Palestinian terrorists who entered the Sinai from the neighboring Gaza Strip.
This is not the first time since Israel's surrender of the Gaza Strip and expulsion of its Jews that 'Palestinians' have been involved in terror in the Sinai. In late April, three explosions rocked the Egyptian resort of Dahab, killing at least 30 people and wounding at least 160. Subsequently, Egypt accused Hamas of harboring that attack's plotter, and it later was revealed that Hamas had actually trained the bombers.

WorldNetDaily goes on to note the close connections between Hamas and the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood, which is an Islamic terror organization that opposes the Egyptian government. Read the whole thing.
