Here we go again

SHARM EL-SHEIK, Egypt - Egypt launched a massive hunt Saturday for terrorists who set off multiple bomb blasts that killed at least 88 in this Red Sea resort packed with European and Arab vacationers. Just days after the latest London strike, the world reeled from yet another attack with possible links to al-Qaida.

Egyptian investigators said they were trying to determine whether foreigners carried out the string of blasts that leveled the reception area of a luxury tourist hotel and ripped apart a coffeehouse crowded with Egyptians at 1:15 a.m. Saturday.

No direct link was seen between the devastating blasts in Sharm and the two rounds of explosions that recently hit London's subway and buses, but together the attacks reinforced a global fear that militants can strike anywhere
Direct link? Are these reporters serious? The whole essence of al Qaeda is that they are joined by ideology. They can operate without leadership, direction, or anything at all, because the only thing they need to do is kill innocent people.

This is a new era that requires new tactics. What the Israelis have been going through for decades is now what the world is experiencing. I dread to think what will happen to our civil liberties now that these enemies are gaining ground and momentum. One thing is certain. The backlash against muslims and arabs will be terrible. I pray for peace.
