There is a high probability that these attacks would occur during the high biblical holidays of Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur and the week-long festival of Sukkot. Making these dates even more enticing to terrorists is that the high holidays this year coincide with the September 11 anniversary of Al Qaeda’s successful assault on America in 2001.

At least 25 Egyptian police officers were murdered this morning in what the Associated Press describes as “execution-style” killings, with suspected Islamists ambushing two police minibuses traveling near border between Sinai Peninsula and the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip.
