Israel, Iraq, whatever

Al-Qaeda linked the bombings in Jordan yesterday, which killed at least 56 and wounded more than 100, to the US campaign in Iraq.

Yeah, and that's why they targeted hotels that are usually filled with Israelis.

An Israeli (Arab) was among those killed.

Fortunately, the reports that Israelis had been evacuated prior to the bombings turned out to be false, they were only escorted back to Israel after the bombings. I say fortunately because had only the Israeli (Jews) been evacuated due to the warning, it would have shown gross negligence on the part of the Jordianian security services. When there is a bomb threat, you evacuate everyone, not some.
