Who Is Killing All Of The Great Jihadis Of The Ummah?
Captain's Quarters ^ | February 15, 2008 | Ed Morrissey

Posted on 02/15/2008 9:05:40 PM PST by MovementConservative

First Umad Mughniyeh takes the 72-virgin ride with a Bashar Assad Special. Now Ayman Atallah Fayed gets blasted in the most literal sense of the word. Both men were high-ranking members of terrorist groups arrayed against Israel. Coincidence?

A powerful blast went off in the house of a senior Islamic Jihad activist Friday, killing him, his wife and daughter, along with three neighbors, medics and an Islamic Jihad spokesman said. Islamic Jihad claimed Israeli warplanes struck the home of Ayman Atallah Fayed. Israel denied it had launched any airstrike in the Bureij refugee camp in central Gaza where Fayed lived. Hamas police said the cause of the blast was not clear.

Witnesses reported seeing fragments of what looked like locally produced rockets at the scene, suggesting the house may have been used to store arms

.

Of course, the explosion could have something to do with the fact that Fayed had his family living on a pile of bombs. Perhaps someone was tinkering with one in the house and connected the right wire at the wrong time. That also could have created the huge scope of the blast. With a lot of ordnance inside, a single explosion could have been amplified greatly through the secondary explosions of the other rockets.

It does seem more than a little coincidental, though. Leading members of two of Israel's biggest enemies getting their martyrdom visas stamped within days of each other would be awfully lucky for the Israelis. Unless, of course, the Israelis were the ones stamping those visas in the first place.

Live by the home-made rocket, die by the home-made rocket. Or the Israelis got another one. Either way, a happy story.

Perhaps that satellite the Indians just lauched for Israel contained more than just some cameras.

These two killings, plus the predator snuffing of Al-Libi in January, and the strike on the Syrian site last September - things are happening! It’s as if Bush and Israel said “Okay, enough is enough, let’s go get ‘em.” I hope this continues, Big Time!

With the MSM not reporting on anything in the middle east and with the fairly good chance of a Obama, we may only have about 11 months to take out the trash.

Looks like everyone is getting busy.

Okay, bear with my foil hat for just a sec here.

Last count I heard was NINE undersea cables cut.

Were they laying the groundwork as some of us suspected?

Perhaps cutting communication between enemy factions?

At any rate, sounds like a winner! Go garbagemen go!

I will tell you who is killing all these scumbags. Our military is. They are doing what we asked them to do, now we should let them finish the job.

Mugniyah and Fayed were both bomb makers. Perhaps the common link is as simple as Hammas/Hezbollah making an unstable batch of High-Ex...or poor quality detonators, etc.

If so, then consider that the above are their A-Team. Now their B-Team gets to handle such inferior materials.

Would the result be any fewer casualties?!

How many #2 and #3 guys do you have to kill before the #4’s and 5’s that move up the chain, just happen to be incompetent?

Cuz according the news, we’ve killed a lot of #2’s........

"Last count I heard was NINE undersea cables cut. Were they laying the groundwork as some of us suspected?"

Cutting the cables was almost assuredly to identify the physical addresses of senders and/or originators of certain enemy signals (by narrowing down available transmission pathways and applying large amounts of computing power and ELINT).

So it's not out of the question to think that the identified enemy sender/receivers will start winding up dead.

First off, I am sorry to hear about the deaths of the wife and daughter and neighbors. But I am sure that God will treat them according to the life they lived up to that time, just like anyone else who dies suddenly.

As for the high-ranking members of the terrorist groups... I wonder how they are enjoying their after-life...

Someone lower in the organization is probably edging for a promotion and is hedging his bet by offing his superiors. He’s probably also counting on being able to blame Israel or the U.S. for the “assassinating” those same superiors.

Probably someone who watched too many “007” movies.

Good news sometimes happens because bad news is coming. Israel may be taking whatever steps they can now because they believe a democrat will be our next president.

I get the feeling Israel is giving the US the brush-off because they feel that the future political leaders coming around the bend are going to clamp down on the Mossad and its hit squad, most likely also delay any new weapons or armament so my guess Israel is right now poised with its hand on the trigger. If they can cull the Hamass right now I am glad they are, they have much better balls than our leadership in the US.

And... If you order now, I will include a second bottle for the low, low price of $19.95.

Little known fact - Cold Warrior / science fiction writer / computer columnist / modern Renaissance man Jerry Pournelle came up with the concept for Rods from Gods in 1964, when it was called it Project Thor. Quite a hammer, no doubt.

I'm gonna be sorry too, I'm gonna be sorry too, the hell I am. The wive's won't be available to spawn anymore terrorist trash with some other husband, the children won't be available to grow into terrorist trash. They have no compunction about killing our wives and children. People living close to them are terrorists supporters too. They've defined the playing field over and over again. Kill them all and let their vile allah sort it out. Never forget, Bobby Stetham was murdered on Valentine's Day. Never forget, USS Cole, Khobar Towers, 9/11, and on and on.

Do you think they didn't know that Daddy was a murderous terrorist or that they were living in a bomb factory?

One report I read on the death of Mugniyah was that he was walking on a sidewalk when a bomb inside a parked car exploded. If that is true, it would make it a little harder for the explosion to have been caused by mishandling one of his own bombs.

Dead:

Alive:
Osama

8 dead, 10 alive. We’ve still got work to do.

And then we have the Russia-China-North Korea-Venezuela-Cuba axis to worry about....

Well, I am assuming in that culture, the women don't get to choose who their husband is, and they have to keep their mouths shut. Also that the kids were pretty much helpless to leave on their own. If that were the case, then their blood is on the husband's hands.

Unfortunately, since they are using the widowed women and the orphaned kids as suicide bombers ("Be a martyr and get back at the Americans who killed your husband/father" I would guess they are told), it sadly probably was for the best that the whole house / building / area go taken out...
