GAZA — The Palestinian militant group Islamic Jihad, which traded deadly fire with Israel over the weekend in Gaza, does not expect a subsequent truce to last long and has at least 8,000 fighters ready for war, a spokesman said...
...While Hamas has recently spent much of its energy on the business of government, Islamic Jihad has kept its focus firmly on the conflict, gaining in prominence and enjoying significant backing from Muslim supporters, including Iran...
The emergence of this group is going to pose a double semantic problem for Obama & Co. How will they be able to describe “Islamic Jihad” without mentioning its name and breaking the rules in the new State Dept. style book?
Now that's what I call SmartPower™!
