Al-Qaeda to Britain..Leave Iraq and Afghanistan


As was noted earlier here the announcement of Al-qaeda in Britain at a extremist website associated with al Qaeda. They issued a statement in an open forum threatening retaliation unless Britain leaves Iraq and Afghanistan. Remove all Muslim captives from Belmarsh high security prison. Radical clerics Abu Qatada (in the prison estate) and Abu Hamza al-Masri who is awaiting extradition to the US are among those whom alQaeda want "immediate release.. The statement was signed by "Sheikh Umar Rabie al-Khalaila. Sheikh eh?...ed
From Times UK

"If the British government fails to respond to our demands within the last day of March 2008, then the martyrdom seekers of the Organisation of al-Qaeda in Britain will target all the political leaders, especially Tony Blair and Gordan (sic) Brown."
"All embassies, crusader centres and their interests throughout the country will be targeted.

According to SITE Intelligence Group:

"The authenticity of the statement could not be verified and was posted on an open section instead of the usual closed forums normally used by alQaeda."

Britain appears to appease those who demand sharia law and punish those who dare to speak out about Islam....Sand can turn to quicksand if one doesn't get their head out of it.

The reason this article "caught" my eye besides the obvious was the statement of the writer following the SITE Institute paragraph....

"the respected Jamestown Foundation."

Is the author stating SITE is not respected? Odd....ed
