Al Qaeda Threatens Canada

Al Qaeda has warned Canada to withdraw troops from Afghanistan or it will be a targetted for terrorist attacks. They also call Canada "second rate crusaders". Are you Canadians just going to sit their and let yourselves be called second-rate anything?

The message from al Qaeda has been consistent: any retreat by Western forces is interpretted as victory---spawning new attacks elsewhere. This is global jihad.

National Post:

An al-Qaeda strategist has warned Canada to withdraw its troops from Afghanistan or face terrorist attacks similar to 9/11, Madrid and the London transit bombings.

The threat, attributed to a member of the al-Qaeda information and strategy committee, condemns Prime Minister Stephen Harper for refusing to pull out of Afghanistan....

It is the second reference in recent weeks to al-Qaeda singling out Canada because of its role in Afghanistan.

Last month, Osama bin Laden's deputy, Ayman Al-Zawahiri, referred to Canadian troops in Kandahar as "second-rate Crusaders."

Note to Democrats in Congress: Know thy enemy.
