Israel == Philippines?

I picked up the 9/11 Report again. Reading through the lifestory of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed reveals an interesting tidbit.

Khalid Sheikh Mohammed was the guy who dreamt up the operation that was carried out on 9/11, 2001. He was working of an idea he hatched in the Philippines. I recall one of the manifestations of that idea. The bombing of a Philippines Airline Flight from Manila to Japan, I recall reading about the event in The Gulf News little did we know how that event would lead to the devestation we saw on 9/11.

Anyway, KSM's original plan was very grand. His plan called for the hijacking and missilification of about one dozen airliners and he himself would hijack a plane and after the other planes hit home, he would force the plane he was on to land, kill the men on board and then denounce the US for its support of, Israel and the Philippines.

The 9/11 Commission Report spends a fair amount of time talking about KSM's links to Jemmah Islamiya the terror group that operates through Malaysia, Indonesia, and the Philippines.
