Every Thursday We Post Perspectives in Prophecy
By Dr. Chuck Missler
Al Qaida is making the most of the situation in Libya, according to an Algerian security official. Weapons from Libya have been smuggled toward Al Qaida destinations in western Africa, and governments in the region are concerned that Al Qaida’s forces could step into the void left if Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi is forced to step down.
- Gunmen stormed a house in the village of Zumbraniya, 25 miles from Baghdad, killing six men and wounding three women in one family.
- Also Monday, bombs went off at the homes of three separate officials in Baghdad. A bomb killed one of the bodyguards of Razzaq Marzouq, a director general at Iraq’s Industrial Ministry. Three of his other bodyguards were wounded in the explosion. The director general of the government-owned Iraqi Investments Board, Bahser Muhssan, and a bystander were wounded in an explosion at Muhssan’s home in southern Baghdad. Abed Majwal, a member of a consortium of counter-terrorist paramilitary groups, was killed in an explosion outside his house in western Baghdad.
- Finally, gunmen killed an Iraqi police officer at a checkpoint in southwestern Baghdad.
The West is not alone in a desire to keep Al Qaida from gaining power. The nations in the Middle East have a vested interest in holding down the terrorist organization as well. Unfortunately, the uprisings have greatly opened opportunities for Al Qaida – opportunities that the group’s leaders are willing to exploit.
