Internet Access to Middle East Cut Again

It happened before, then it happened again and it's STILL HAPPENING: underwater internet cables from connecting Europe and Asia to the Middle East have been mysteriously severed.

BBC News quotes international businessman Jonathan Wright as saying, "We've lost three out of four lines. If the fourth cable breaks, we're looking at a total blackout in the Middle East?Normally you would expect to see one major break per cable per year. With four you should have an insurance policy. For this to happen twice in one year, on the same cable, is a serious cause for concern."

Is this an accident or the West trying to prevent terrorism? Terrorists are known to communicate through cryptic messages on the internet.
