Al-Qaeda Spurs Gaza Carnage to Create Hamastan

From Al-Qaeda Spurs Gaza Carnage to Create Hamastan:

The real force behind the Gaza mayhem seems to be a combined al-Qaeda and Iran strategy, strange bedfellows perhaps, but for the time being, closely-linked partners in a common strategic goal to establish "Hamastan" as a forward base for global terrorism. Al-Qaeda's ultimate objective is to destabilize and destroy the moderate Arab nations, first in line post-Mubarak's Egypt, then the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, and finally, the Sunni cradle of Saudi Arabia. A similar aim is Tehran's Shiite Crescent strategy.
