Yahoo! News - Qaeda Blamed as Attacks on Shi'ites Kill 170 in Iraq: "Leaders of the country's 60 percent Shi'ite majority said the bloodbaths were intended to ignite civil war. The Iraqi Governing Council blamed a Jordanian who Washington says is working for al Qaeda and trying to fuel chaos in Iraq. "
Seems to me that killing Muslims during a religious ceremony is not a good way for Al Qaeda to win sympathy amongst other Arabs and Muslims. As tragic as these killings are it would seem as though these actions could well spark an Arab backlash against Al Qaeda.
