Egyptian experts say Mossad could be behind
7/25/2005 3:12:00 PM GMT
Several Egyptian security experts and political analysts said that the Mossad,
Israel's spy agency, was behind Saturday's attacks on the Red Sea resort of Sharm al-Sheikh. Similar accusations were made against Israel in the past, particularly
after last year's attack at the Taba Hotel in October and after the 9/11 attacks in the United States.
Saturday's pre-dawn blasts killed more than 64 people, according to Egypt's health ministry, although hospital officials put the toll as high as 88. Many Egyptian security officials said at least one car used in the bombings had special plates indicating it had come from the Israeli border at Taba on the Sinai peninsula.
On Saturday, Egypt's state-run television interviewed retired army general Fuad Allam, who said that he was confident that Israel played a key role in Sharm al-Sheikh bombings. Fuad also said that investigations showed that the mastermind of the Taba attack, which killed more than 34 people, was a Palestinian "apparently linked to Israel's security forces."

Plus, a real "Palestinian Militant" wouldn't dare to work with the Israelis without having to fear death from fellow Arabs/Muslims. Shin Beth may have
had a role in these bombings. ]
He added: "I'm almost certain that Israel was also behind this attack because
they want to undermine our government and deal a severe blow to our
economy. The only ones who benefit from these attacks are the Israelis and
the Americans." - [MY EMPHASIS HERE - BY AMERICANS HE PROBABLY MEANS THE ZIONIST
OCCUPIED GOVERNMENT OF THE USA - NOT THE REAL AMERICANS).
Other Egyptian political figures and prominent journalists and editors
interviewed by Arabic TV channels made similar accusations.
Dia Rashwan, a political expert, said that Israel is the only country that
benefits from such attacks.
Dismissing the idea that "al-Qaeda" was behind the bombings, Rashwan
explained: "We are giving al- Qaeda more credit than it deserves. What
happened here negates the possibility that the attacks were carried out by
ordinary elements. This is the work of an extraordinary element – one that
benefits from such attacks. All the available details indicate that only the
Israelis could have done this."
Majdi Birnawi, another security expert, said that the Mossad was behind the
attacks. "I believe that Mossad or some other [Israeli] security organization
carried out this attack,"
Birnawi said he believed the Sharm el-Sheikh bombings were related to the
Taba attacks, in which 12 Israelis were killed. "Everyone knows that there are
no Israelis in Sharm e-Sheikh," he said.
"There are only Western tourists there. That's why it's wrong to assume that
the perpetrators were targeting Israelis."

Six Pakistani suspects
Meanwhile, news agencies reported that Egyptian police are searching for six
Pakistani citizens in connection with Sharm el-Sheikh bombings. They have distributed photographs of the six men. The six wanted Pakistanis were staying at a hotel in Sharm al-Sheikh and had left their passports at the reception, police said.
Egyptian authorities have already arrested close to 100 people in connection
with the attacks, and Interior Minister Habib al-Adly said investigators already
[MY EMPHASIS - THE SIX MEN ARE PATSIES AND/OR SCAPEGOATS THAT THE MOSSAD WANTED TO IMPLICATE IN THE ATTACS. SO RIGHT WHEN THE BOMBINGS OCCURRED, THEY LEFT EVIDENCE THAT WOULD IMPLICATE THE PAKISTANIS AS BEING THE PERPETRATORS OF THAT ACT OF TERRORISM - JUST LIKE THEY DID ON THE US EMBASSY COMPOUNDS IN NAIROBI AND DAR-ES-SALAAM IN 1998!!!]
The deadly bombings were strongly condemned by the Egyptian public. More than 1,000 Egyptian hotel workers, bedouin sheikhs and foreign dive school instructors rallied through Sharm el-Sheikh yesterday to denounce the attacks. "There is no God but God and terrorism is the enemy of God," chanted the Egyptian protesters, including hotel chefs, technicians and road sweepers, as they marched along the main road of Sharm el-Sheikh.
