On the day that British security forces say publicly that four bombers died in the London terror attacks last Thursday, it seems that once again a suicide bomber has struck inside Israel. An explosion took place in or near the Hasharon shopping mall in Nethanya. Could it be that if there is a connection between 'the' conflict and Islamist terror, it is rather a methodological, ideological and religious connection between Islamist and Palestinian ( not necessarily Islamist ) terror's perpetrators than a more general causal one? ( see the article in Dutch ).
The Islamic Jihad already claimed responsibility.
Now it is only a matter of time before the first public told-you-so statements will come from disengagement opponents ( remember: I-told-you-so ). The closer we get to August 15th the more attacks we can expect. Islamic Jihad is as opposed to the disengagement as, let's say......, Hamas.
