Arab Leaders threaten Hamas at Arab Israeli Summit, Al Zawahiri tells Hamas to unite with Holy Warriors against them!

First and related, A suicide bomber detonated his explosives inside a busy central Baghdad hotel, killing at least 12 people -- including Sunni and Shiite tribal sheiks who were meeting as part of Iraq's reconciliation effort -- U.S. and Iraqi officials told CNN.

Initial reports indicate seven sheiks -- five Sunnis and two Shiites -- were among those killed, a U.S. military official told CNN's Barbara Starr. Those killed include Fassal al-Qaoud, the former governor of Iraq's Anbar province who was a tribal leader in Ramadi, and Rahim al-Maliki, an anchorman with Iraqiya State television, the official said. South of Baghdad, a suicide car bomber detonated at a government compound in the town of Hilla Monday morning, killing at least eight people and wounding 31 others, a local official told CNN. Among the dead were civilians and security guards, authorities said.

The attack took place around 7 a.m. (11 p.m. ET Sunday).Hilla is located about 60 miles (100 km) south of Baghdad.
That was only the beginning as you know if you heard or looked at the link. I however just wanted to point out the worsening of sectarian violence and it will get a lot worse in Iraq, some of it on their own people as two other events took place in the middle east that bear thought as sides are being developed in Bush's ever expanding middle east breakdown.

Arab diplomatic sources tell TIME that the Arab-Israeli summit in Sharm el Sheikh on Monday is intended as a stern message to Hamas: Stop fighting Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, or we'll launch a political war against you. But the sources say that the goal of the Arab regimes is to press for Hamas to join a new Palestinian unity government along with Abbas's Fatah party. Explains a senior Arab official, the decision to hold a meeting between Abbas, Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, Jordan's King Abdullah II and Israel's Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, "is a diplomatic warning to Hamas: If you try to strip Abbas's authority, think twice. We'll throw all our support to Abbas and work against you."

The new summit comes against a backdrop of deepening Arab frustration and despair over the failure to find a solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, worsened by the spectacle of Palestinians killing each other. "Gaza has become an embarrassing and frightening scene evoking sorrow and grief in the hearts," Saudi commentator Abdulrahman al-Rashid wrote in the pan-Arab newspaper Asharq al-Awsat last week. Lately, Arab officials have grown anxious that their own increased diplomatic efforts are going unrewarded as they watch the growing influence of Iran, which backs radical Arab factions, including Hamas. While Hamas' power play humiliated the Saudis, which took pride in mediating the creation of the Palestinian unity government through February's Mecca Agreement, it also alarms the authorities in Egypt and Jordan, who face political challenges from Islamist parties in their own countries.
This will only get more serious and deadly but I have to laugh. Can they really think they will be listened to other than supplying the other half of middle east combatants they will have no influence just like their ally Bush. if you read the story Bush and Israel have only served to increase tensions between Fatah and Hamas and fight they will. In steps Al Qaeda's no.2 Ayman Al-Zawahiri setting up the other side of this still developing war equation.

Al Qaeda's deputy leader called on Muslims around the world to back Hamas with weapons, money and attacks on U.S. and Israeli interests in a Web audio tape Monday, urging the Palestinian militant group to unite with Al Qaeda's "holy warriors" after its takeover of Gaza. Al-Zawahiri urged Hamas to implement Islamic law in Gaza, telling it, "Taking over power is not a goal but a means to implement God's word on earth.""Unite with mujahedeen (holy warriors) in Palestine ... and with all mujahedeen in the world in the face of the upcoming attack where Egyptians and Saudis are expected to play part of it," he added, suggesting that the two countries intend to attack Hamas to uproot its control of Gaza.

Don't they see that no one is going to back down and sides are still developing in this middle east breakdown Bush set in motion by attacking Iraq. Like you I am not pleased with what I see as inevitable still forming and that is a total war to implement Islamic Law or Bush's so called new order. As you probably know, I am more concerned because I have one son still there and another volunteering to go back. What a mess!

I wonder if the US is using Israel to start a war through the entire mideast for the oil

Hi Holly!
Yes they are. Glad you got back. Didn't know how to get back to you. The U.S. is fighting this by proxy in part using Israel and Iran is doing the same using various Islamist interests,
I have always figured that coming to Israel's rescue is only one way Bush will find his excuse to attack Iran and further this middle east breakdon but find it he will and I figure this fall.
One son is due home from flying there 9/5 and I told him and the son in EOD who just got back from Afghanistan and is revolunteering to go back to Iraq, not to count on anything because these Bush wars are just starting.
Do you remember right from the start that Israel's goal was to establish like Bush, a new middle east order so they could have a safety zone.
Forget it! This chaos Bush created for Iraq will spread uncontrolled throughout the middle east then it will really get started. Oil though is another issue and many think as you said, but there is a lot in play I have written about many times no one realizes that will make you rethink everything that is happening here with gas prices and in the Gulf that Bush promises to clog up and shut down the worlds major oil supply but not ours.
If you can on my Blog, Search T Boone Pickens and you will get a story I wrote over a year ago that will make you think. Otherwise I will E it to you if you have one or put it here as a comment to you. Let me know if you are interested!

There was always word before 9/11 that Bush had plans to attack Iraq, which we all know is true.

It is my belief that as much of a mess as this is, they had always planned on stirring up the entire Mideast into war,before 9/11, make the excuse we are protecting Israel, and then Bush pursues his quest for world dominance, by controlling the Mideast oil.

Of course when you see what a mess it already is, his plans were hampered, but he still wants to spread enough that no matter who takes the White House, the whole region will be in chaos.

You ere entirely right! Now I am going to share just a little on that subject. Nothing that is happening there today is new, surprising, or unplanned in the long term. This is only a part of it but don't get lost in sources but tell me what you think. The scariest part is this is all old and much of it by me.
Bush's terrible plan for new middle east order! now I have the proof! This is not good!
I was looking at the notes I took down last night from the various articles I had from Bush's most recent Rant on Iraq. Like you, I find his senseless babble very disturbing. Especially knowing that he is going to say or do anything to follow his plan for new world order. Many of you know I have been saying for quite a while that Bush will do or say anything in order to follow his Russian Doctrine of Destruction for new societal, middle east, and world order. His plan at the link!
I knew Bush purposely upset the middle east, Iraq would be lost, Iran attacked, and the entire middle east embroiled. Thanks to Shergald, a diarist on kos, I now have the proof.

In this short policy memo, which Netanyahu, and his successor-Likud Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, totally adopted as the core strategy of their administrations, spelled out a four-pronged attack on the peace process and the entire Arab world. It has become a self-evident truth that, since the Bush "43" and Sharon governments came into power simultaneously in early 2001, "A Clean Break" has been the guiding strategic doctrine of both--particularly following the irregular warfare attacks on New York and Washington on Sept. 11, 2001.
The Perle-Wurmser policy document demanded: 1) Destroy Yasser Arafat and the Palestinian Authority, blaming them for every act of Palestinian terrorism, including the attacks from Hamas, an organization which Sharon had helped launch during his early 1980's tenure as Minister of Defense. 2) Induce the United States to overthrow the Saddam Hussein regime in Iraq. 3) Launch war against Syria after Saddam's regime is disposed of, including striking Syrian military targets in Lebanon, and targets in Syria proper. 4) Parlay the overthrow of the Ba'athist regimes in Baghdad and Damascus into the "democratization" of the entire Arab world, including through further military actions against Iran, Saudi Arabia, and "the ultimate prize," Egypt

The timeline for this as expected is a little different than what we now know. As for the reality of what the real reasons and goals for all this, we will never know. I will again guarantee you that there will be a new middle east order. It will be total disorder and no one will like it. With Bush and Israel wanting their idea of a new middle east order and the so called Islamist's wanting their conflicting version, they have guaranteed a disastrous result for the entire middle east and Bush promises to keep our troops in the middle of it regardless!
