Al-Qaeda plot to attack Suez Canal shipping foiled

Egypt has arrested 25 terrorists - 24 Egyptians led by a 'Palestinian' - and charged them with planning to attack ships and oil pipelines running across the Suez Canal.
The Egyptian Interior Ministry said the new cell was led by a Palestinian and included 24 Egyptians, mostly engineers and technicians.

They planned to use mobile phones to detonate explosives against ships crossing the Canal, the statement said.

The group learned how to make car bombs through communicating with al-Qaida terrorists on jihadi Web sites, according to an Interior Ministry statement.

The detainees confessed to funding their activities through contributions from Islamic charities abroad and in one case robbed a jewelry store and murdered its Coptic Christian owner.
And you thought now that Barack Obama made peace with Islam there wouldn't be any more Islamic terror.

Islamists are not going to cease jihad upon the infidels just because America is now led by a President friendly to Islam.

What could go wrong indeed
