Most Terrorists in Iraq Said Saudi

"In mainstream media and government statements, the jihadist killers were never identified, beyond noting that they were foreign. Now we have real evidence, and the verdict … points south of the Iraqi border."

Schwartz references a published paper titled "Arab volunteers killed in Iraq: an Analysis," underwritten by The Global Research in International Affairs Center in Israel, described by the author as "a highly reputable and reliable think-tank."

Researched and written by Dr. Reuven Paz, the paper analyzes the origins of 154 Arab jihadists killed in Iraq in the last six months, whose names have been posted on Islamist websites.

Says Swartz: "The sample does not account for all jihadists in Iraq, but provides a useful and eye-opening profile of them."

Here's what it reports:

According to Schwartz, the names of most of the dead appeared on the websites after the battle of Falluja, and they were all supporters of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi and al Qaeda.

The total of 154 included 33 suicide terrorists, of whom 23 were Saudis (with 10 from Najd).

Given that Najdis make up 43.5 percent of Saudi suicide bombers in Iraq, and 65 percent of all Saudi jihadists on the list, Paz concluded from his study that the "Wahhabi doctrines of Najd - the heart of Wahhabism - remain highly effective."

Iraqis have come to notice and resent the presence of the foreign intruders. In late February, 2,000 people assembled in Hilla, near Baghdad, to protest a car bombing that killed at least 25. The demonstrators chanted, "No to terrorism! No to Baathism and Wahhabism!"
