Why They Hate Us, Part 2

Again, the Islamist terrorists bomb a target with no military value, and indiscriminately murder over two dozen people, wounding hundreds and destroying a hotel in the Egyptian resort town of Sharm el-Sheikh. Sharm el-Sheikh is a popular resort destination for foreign tourists in Egypt. According to CNN,
Twenty-eight of those injured are non-Egyptian citizens, said Hala el-Khatib, spokeswoman for the Egyptian Tourism Ministry. They include 13 Italians; five British; three Spanish; three Saudis; one Turk; one Ukrainian; a Russian; and an Arab-Israeli, she said.
About five non-Egyptian citizens are among the dead, she said, but their nationalities were not available.

This was a stupid, stupid move on the part of the terrorists, and does nothing to influence a government or intimidate a people. How is this action a protest against Western influence in the Middle East? My God...they killed their own co-religionists!I'm sorry. This really bothers me. Insane. Insane.
