Al-Qaeda has repeatedly launched verbal attacks against Israel, but when have they actually launched a physical attack against Israel? Never! As for al-Qaeda cells in Gaza, the stated reason for their existance was for the Sunni al-Qaeda to fight Shiite Hamas. In fact Hamas has actually moved against al-Qaeda cells in Gaza pretty much putting them out of business. But also note, not every group calling itself al-Qaeda is actually connected to bin Laden. Some are influenced by bin Laden and some are allies. But others are just al-Qaeda "wannabees," or a group of nobodies who think that calling themselves al-Qaeda makes them look tough.
