Group Affiliated With Global Jihad Claims Responsibility For Bulgaria Terror, ‘Ramadan Is A Month Of Holy War And Death For Allah’
By Roi Kais – “A group going by the name ‘Qaedat al-Jihad’ has claimed responsibility for the terrorist attack against Israeli tourists in Burgas which claimed the lives of six people, including five Israelis, and wounded dozens.
In a statement released in Western media outlets, the group threatened to carry out more attacks. ‘The month of Ramadan is a month of holy war and death for Allah. It is a month for fighting the enemies of Allah and God’s messenger, the Jews and their American facilitators.’
The organization is apparently affiliated with the Global Jihad movement.
Its statement said, ‘One of our groups aided by Allah managed to bomb a bus full of Jewish tourists, plunderers of holy lands, after careful tracking.
‘The holy war is not confined to a particular arena and we shall fight the Jews and the Americans until they leave the land of Islam.’
Israel and the US pointed a finger at Iran and Hezbollah following the attack.” Source – Ynet.

I think, probably, the Iranians may think that they might use, perhaps, al Qaeda in the future as a surrogate or proxy.’” Read more.
