SITE Publications
Jihadist Forum Discusses Egyptian Bombings
By SITE Institute
August 8, 2005

Postings on a password-protected al-Qaeda affiliated internet message board absolves the perpetrators of the Sharm al-Sheikh bombings of guilt for harming Muslim civilians by suggesting variously that the bombs must have only hit tourists, the bombers attacked the tourist buses rather than the minibuses used by locals, and Sharm al-Sheikh was so diseased by immorality that the bombings were necessarily helpful to Muslims. A poster writing from Palestine reports that upon hearing news of the bombings, people "distributed candy in mosques".

The postings also accuse Arab and Western media of falsifying reports on the bombings and increasing the proportion of Muslim casualties from the bombings.

A full translation of the message postings is provided to our Intel Service members.
