Al Qaeda officially takes credit

It’s now official: Al Qaeda has taken credit for Saturday’s blast in Saudi Arabia.

An Arab magazine claimed Tuesday that a purported member of Usama bin Laden’s Al Qaeda terrorist group had sent them an e-mail claiming responsibility for Saturday’s homicide bombing in Riyadh that killed 17 people and left more than 100 wounded.

And as I’ve said before, don’t be surprised that Al Qaeda is now targeting fellow Muslims. Just as extremist Islamists view the Western world as enemies, those who side with the West and Western interests are also seen as enemies.
