Al Qaida infiltrates Gaza -- who could have predicted it? Duh!

By Aussiegirl

Turning over Gaza to the Palestinians has done nothing but create a terror-central, with Al Qaida operating freely.

Palestinian security forces in Gaza and the West Bank have located several operatives spreading al-Qaida ideology and one was arrested, reports said Thursday.
Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas says he has proof al-Qaida cells are operating in the West Bank and Gaza.
"I am very concerned about this," Abbas said. "If they succeeded in infiltrating in such a way, and if no one watches over them, the result could be disastrous for the entire region."
A Hamas spokesman said his organization has no intelligence information regarding al-Qaida cells in the West Bank or Gaza, the Jerusalem Post reported.
Central Commander Yair Naveh revealed earlier that global Jihad and al-Qaida cells based in Jordan have stepped up their attempts to infiltrate Israel and are in close contact with Palestinian terror cells based in the West Bank.
Jordan, he said, should be particularly concerned with the Hamas takeover of the Palestinian Authority.
