Hi, dead community! I shall attempt to bring you back to life.

Really I just have some questions about this plane hijacking in Mauritania. I couldn't figure out what was going on from the story: it claims that the hijacking seems to have occurred because al-Qaeda issued a statement ordering attacks on Mauritania for its recent recognition of Israel, but then Wikipedia sez that Mauritania is an Islamic republic that abides by sharia law. I guess it's not impossible for an Islamic country under sharia to recognize Israel, but I have no idea how common it is, or what exactly the ramifications are. Anyway, if anyone has more of the political background on this situation, or on what an Islamic country recognizing Israel tends to mean in general, I'd be most grateful. :)
