As I write this, Britain has 40 dead from a series of bombings. The BBC found a note on an Islamist website that claims the attack for al-Qaeda:
In the name of God, the merciful, the compassionate, may peace be upon the cheerful one and undaunted fighter, Prophet Muhammad, God’s peace be upon him.
Well isn’t that a nice way to start a message claiming responsibility for a terrorist attack?
Nation of Islam and Arab nation: Rejoice for it is time to take revenge against the British Zionist Crusader government in retaliation for the massacres Britain is committing in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Oh, yes. Wouldn’t be Islamist terrorism if they didn’t mention the Jews.
The heroic mujahideen have carried out a blessed raid in London. Britain is now burning with fear, terror and panic in its northern, southern, eastern, and western quarters.
Uh, “fear, terror and panic”? From the Brits? I doubt it.
I’m not saying that nobody in Britain is scared today. Of course they are. But…let’s not forget that these are Brits. Londoners. They’ve been bombed before.
The German Blitz during World War II lasted eight months, damaged a million houses, and killed 43,000 people. It was intended to knock Britain out of the war. It didn’t. I don’t think it will this time either.
We have repeatedly warned the British Government and people. We have fulfilled our promise and carried out our blessed military raid in Britain after our mujahideen exerted strenuous efforts over a long period of time to ensure the success of the raid.
We continue to warn the governments of Denmark and Italy and all the Crusader governments that they will be punished in the same way if they do not withdraw their troops from Iraq and Afghanistan. He who warns is excused.
“He who warns is excused”? This is just a version of what every two-bit creep says to the cops as they put the cuffs on. “I told him I’d stick him if he didn’t shut up!”
If issuing a warning made it okay, then the Islamists ought to excuse the United States for the invasion of Iraq, right? That came after years of warnings, some of them even from the U.N.
