Al-Qaida, Al-Zarqawi responsible for attack: “The conclusion has arrived. Al-Qaida is behind the attacks and specifically Abu Musab al-Zarqawi’s people,” Muasher told a packed press conference in Amman.
Jordan a Target Because of Links to US: Jordan has been a key backstage support for U.S. and other international operations during the Iraq war… Al-Qaida in Iraq said it attacked three Western-operated hotels Wednesday because Jordan was “a backyard garden for the enemies of the religion, Jews and Crusaders … a filthy place for the traitors … and a center for prostitution.”
Zarqawi Flubs and Kills Israel’s Enemies: “After first claiming responsibility for the Wednesday attacks on three hotels popular with Israelis and Westerners, al-Qaida in Iraq later issued a second Internet statement that appeared to acknowledge that its tactics may have backfired and undermined any support the group enjoyed among the Jordanian population,” writes Greenberg.

Mossad-CIA Collaboration Sends Message to China: But not only did the dead al-Zarqawi kill innocent Jordanians and important Palestinians, he also managed to kill a few Chinese. It is common knowledge the Chinese government is nurturing a relationship with the Palestinians…
As usual, the corporate media beats the propaganda drums, stating that “al-Qaeda in Iraq” is behind the attacks, while never seeming to realise the bombings benefit Israel and the United States.
