A group calling itself “The Secret Organization of al-Qaida in Europe” has claimed credit for today’s bombings in London:
|In the new statement, the group said “the heroic mujahedeen carried out a blessed attack in London, and now Britain is burning with fear and terror, from north to south, east to west.”|
|“We warned the British government and the British people repeatedly. We have carried out our promise and carried out a military attack in Britain after great efforts by the heroic mujahedeen over a long period to ensure its success.”|
|“We continue to warn the governments of Denmark and Italy and all crusader governments that they will receive the same punishment if they do not withdraw their troops from Iraq and Afghanistan,” the statement went on.|
|It was signed “The Secret Organization of al-Qaida in Europe.”|
Conspicuously missing from the list of future targets are Australia and the United States. One assumes that these countries would be even more desirable victims of al Qaeda than Denmark and Italy. Why, then, were they left off?
|1.||The terrorists’ operational structure in the two Anglosphere countries is so compromised and degraded that they simply cannot mount serious attacks there.|
|2.||Denmark and Italy get to go first, so they are mentioned specifically.|
|3.||The jihadis simply forgot and left them out of the list.|
Your guess is as good as mine.
