CAIRO (Reuters) - Egypt's foreign minister expressed surprise on Saturday at the furor over a deadly attack by an Egyptian national at Los Angeles airport, saying the motives were still unclear and similar incidents occurred frequently. Limousine driver Hesham Mohamed Hadayet opened fire at the Los Angeles airport ticket counter of Israeli airline El Al on July 4, killing two people and injuring five others before he was shot dead. Egypt's official Middle East News Agency (MENA) said Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Maher told reporters in Cairo that such incidents occur repeatedly in the United States and other countries and said he was surprised by the exaggeration of this event in particular. Hadayet's nationality and the fact that his two victims were both Jewish have already led Israeli officials to label the shooting a "terrorist attack," but U.S. officials have cautioned against jumping to conclusions. "Until now, nobody knows the motives behind this incident. We have to await the outcome of the current investigations so that we can review them," MENA quoted Maher as saying. U.S. investigators are still seeking to establish whether Hadayet, who had been a U.S. resident since 1992 and had no known ties to groups the United States calls "terrorists," was motivated by hatred or despondency over a personal crisis. Egypt's semi-official al-Ahram daily said on Saturday that local security authorities had no information on record about Hadayet and there was no evidence he had any links to extremist activities when he lived in Egypt. Lemme get this straight...we've had Muslim terrorists kill innocent Americans. And we're over-reacting to a Muslim killing Israelis in our airport??? Yeah...I guess we're too stupid to read between the lines. Muslims are peaceful...[puke] [b][blue]NAKED[/blue][/b]
