Assuming that Al-Queda was responsible for the bombing, I should think 
that it makes little difference to them whether it is the Popular or 
Socialist Party holding the reigns. As I understand it, Al-Qaedas' 
priciple ideology is concerned with the removal of western influence 
from Muslim states. This includes the destruction of Israel as well as 
overthrowing the leadership of any pro-western muslim nation.
