Piece of the action

As I mentioned in the previous post Hamas would like nothing more than to turn the Palestinian – Israeli conflict into the mother of all holy wars, Islam vs. Israel.  Now that Hamas has taken a step toward that goal, bin Laden says he wants a piece of the action.  From the the NY Times:

“In his first public statement over the 19-day Gaza conflict, the leader of Al Qaeda, Osama Bin Laden, on Wednesday publicly exhorted Muslims to wage holy war against Israel and criticized Israel’s Arab allies in an audiotape posted on Islamist Web sites.”
