(Jerusalem Post) Khaled Abu Toameh - A hitherto unknown group calling itself al-Tawhid and Jihad [Unification and Holy War], believed to be headed by Jordanian arch-terrorist Abu Musab Zarqawi, has distributed leaflets in Gaza threatening to kill a number of top PA officials belonging to Abbas' Fatah party. The leaflet is an indication that al-Qaeda elements had begun operating in Gaza.
