The Ghost of Snapped Shot

Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

"Abu Ammar Brigades" Rises Again?

You might remember a brief discussion about a new offshoot of the Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades sometime this past May. In fact, less than 24 hours after "Abu Ammar Brigades"—named after Chairman Arafat, of course—was formed, its newly-minted leader was killed in record time by "unknown" assailants. And then, it seemed, the rest of the group quickly followed.

With that, it's amusing to note that, thanks to the efforts of our intrepid (and seditious) photographer Mohammed Ballas (the COWARD), we've been informed that Abu Ammar Brigades lives on.

It will definitely be interesting to see if these guys start feeling the heat again. I suspect that, what with the "tension" between Fatah and Hamas, they'll be left alone to terrorize Israel for a short while. At least, until Israel decides to fight back.
