Maybe not… The Washington Times is reporting Al Qaeda seeks tie to local gangs:
Adnan G. El Shukrijumah, a key al Qaeda cell leader for whom the U.S. government has offered a $5 million reward, was spotted in July in Honduras meeting with leaders of El Salvador’s notorious Mara Salvatrucha gang, which immigration officials said has smuggled hundreds of Central and South Americans ‚Äî mostly gang members ‚Äî into the United States.
And those gangbangers make their money selling cocaina, etc. It’s the “ends justify the means” revisited, only this time under sharia. Frankly, I find it scarier than the communist version. And harder to combat.
