Saudi fighter killed

GAZA CITY: A Saudi Arabian who went to the Gaza Strip to fight alongside Hamas was killed during Israel’s offensive in the Palestinian territory, several Islamic websites reported yesterday. Abu Mohammed Al Marri, who reportedly arrived in Gaza 10 days before the start of the Israeli offensive, “has become a martyr in the land of Gaza,” the websites said. The man, from a town in eastern Saudi Arabia, was a veteran of battles against Russian troops in Afghanistan and in Chechnya as well as against Serb and Croat forces in Bosnia, the websites said.

As emailer Alex said, “Thank you, Israel!”

U.S. Government:

We’re fighting them there so we don’t have to fight them here.
Except in the Balkans.
We help them there so we have to later fight them elsewhere.
Including here.
