Sure, it's because of Iraq

Thanks to Powerline for pointing us to this,

The Sun created this map, which shows some of the principal acts of Islamic terror, beginning with the first World Trade Center bombing in 1993. The map is by no means complete; among other things, it doesn't include any of the terrorist attacks in Israel.

The Sun:

More than 4,000 people have died as Islamic terrorism has spread across the world over the last decade. Here we highlight some of the worst atrocities.

Hinderacker adds,

Liberals are nevertheless convinced that this latest attack must be due to the war in Iraq. No word yet on the others.

Joe Gandelman at The Moderate Voice (via Instapundit) responds to Kos and others on the left now assailing the flypaper theory,

It's highly doubtful that if the U.S. wasn't now in Iraq that Osama bin Laden would today be out of his mass-murderer day job, standing behind a counter, wearing a bright cap, asking: "Do you want fries with that?"

He has tons of other great links.
