59. Interesting name they call themselves:
"Secret Organization group of al-Qaeda of Jihad in Europe"

Isn't that a bit lengthy? Even the acronym derived from it, SOGAQJE, is silly.

Also a bit silly too as they're not very secret anymore...

The last time I heard of a group with a lengthy name was "The Committee for the Liberation and Integration of Terrifying Organisms and their Rehabilitation Into Society"... from a sitcom. no less. Naturally as any real life organization is going to want to keep the name and abbreviation easy to remember. "Secret Organization group of al-Qaeda of Jihad in Europe" is

And why England? Their involvement in Iraq pales compared to that of the US.

Also, given the time of the G8 summit makes me wonder as well...

But, regardless, if goes without saying that these attacks - by whoever caused them - are beyond vile. May the perps be caught and dealt with accordingly.

My question is, is it really Al Quaeda with a honkin' huge name like that?
