Palestinian Met with Bin Laden about Attack in Israel

(Jerusalem Post) Joshua Hamerman - Abu Zubaydah, a Palestinian born in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, raised funds to carry out terror attacks against Jewish and Israeli targets, according to a U.S. Defense Department Guantanamo detainee report released by WikiLeaks. Zubaydah supplied the late al-Qaeda commander Abu Musab al-Zarqawi with several thousand dollars for an operation in the West Bank and Gaza. He also plotted with Ayman al-Zawahiri's former deputy, Abu Samih, to attack Israeli and Jewish targets in Morocco. Zubaydah raised $50,000 for an attack against the Israeli Embassy in Egypt, but gave the money to bin Laden, telling him the funding was to be used specifically for attacks on Israeli targets.
