Al Qaeda never attacked Israel

Angry Arab: "It is known that Al-Qa`idah never ever attacked Israel. In fact, it seems that Bin Laden did not adhere to boycott of companies that helped Israel. I read in the New York Times that he drank Coke."

Also read my post "12 times as many suicide bombings in Iraq as in Israel"

Dear Blogger,

Hi! This is an invitation from the Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University and Global Voices Online to participate in a survey we're carrying out jointly. We're asking questions about online safety for bloggers in the Middle East and North Africa, and we need your help!

We are particularly interested in learning about your experiences with social media, the steps you take to protect your privacy online, and your perceptions of online threats. We are sending surveys to approximately 600 influential bloggers throughout the region in the hopes of learning more about how bloggers view and approach the issue of online safety.

The survey will take approximately 25 minutes to complete. We will not share personal information — or the fact that you've participated in this survey — with anyone else, and you’ll be the first to know when we release the results of the survey. Will you help us?

With appreciation,

Bin Laden probably figured that there were already enough terrorist groups like Hamas, Hezbollah and friends going after Israel and Jews around the world. Bin Laden wanted Al Qaida to go after the Great Satan (the United States), itself rather than be content with attacking the Little Satan (Israel). Also given the flabby US response or frequently non response to terrorist attacks pre 9/11 to Israel's constant policy of retailation and tracking down of terrorists world wide, Bin Laden may have thought the US to be the softer target.

I think a lot of Arabs ignore the boycott of companies that do business with Israel when it comes to coke cola; sort of like Americans ignoring the US boycott of Cuba when it comes to Cuban cigars.

Hezbollah and Hamas are not 'terrorist organisations'. They have been characterised as such by Israel and it's allies but they are in fact legitimate political parties. Al Qaida is a US/Israeli created terrorist organisation which has never attacked Israel or it's interests. It mostly kills muslims in muslim countries. It's trail of bloodshed through Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Africa is completely in line with what Israel wants.
