The Ghost of Snapped Shot

Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

Not Murderous Enough?

Update:

It would seem that, in less than 12 hours, the leader of this new offshoot of Al-Aqsa has been slain by the IDF, making this perhaps the shortest-lived terrorist group in the history of the Middle East.


It would appear that there is now a spinoff of Al-Aqsa Martyr's Brigades, which is itself a spinoff of the supposedly-moderate Fatah organization. It would seem that these discontents, who form the new Abu Amar Martyr's Brigades (very original), are pushing to kill Jews faster than ever.

The press, of course, didn't miss the opportunity to show up and bask in the thugs' glory.

If the smoking doesn't kill him, the IDF surely will!


It's curious to note that the reason given by these thugs for their separation from Al-Aqsa is that, and I quote, "some Al Aqsa gunmen have earned a bad reputation for their involvement in vigilante actions, including extortion."

Terrorist thugs? Involved in extortion? Who woulda thunk it?

In any case, I've got more background of terrorist press conferences, if you're not familiar with the topic. Otherwise, see the extended version of this article for more basking.

Our Old Pals


I guess the "old" Martyrs Brigade doesn't want to be outdone by the "new" one?

A Palestinian gunman from the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, a group linked to the Fatah Movement, talks on his phone as children look on at a rally calling for the release by Israel of Jamal Tirawi, 41, who serves as the Fatah spokesman in the Palestinian parliament, in the Balata refugee camp, near the West Bank city of Nablus, Tuesday, May 28, 2007. Tirawi has been wanted by Israel for his alleged militant activity since the start of the violent Palestinian uprising in 2000. Israeli troops nabbed him early Tuesday in the Balata refugee camp in Nablus along with four of his bodyguards, his brother Said Tirawi said. (AP Photo / Nasser Ishtayeh)
