  • Muslim group threatens France

    PARIS, France (CNN) -- French police have opened an investigation after a Paris newspaper received a letter from a Muslim group threatening spectacular attacks that would make "blood run to (its) borders."


    I guess they better pull their troops out of Iraq.

    I think this has more to do with bragging rights over the worst body odor than anything else. I could be wrong though.

      The letter, from a previously unknown group calling itself the "Servants of Allah the Mighty and the Wise," said it planned to take action after Muslim girls were banned from wearing headscarves in schools.

        from early in the article, lazy, in the interest of full disclosure...

        The letter, from a previously unknown group calling itself the "Servants of Allah the Mighty and the Wise," said it planned to take action after Muslim girls were banned from wearing headscarves in schools.

        The bill was passed last month by the National Assembly.

          Describing France as a country of "wine, pigs, loose morals and nudity," the group said it planned to use attack techniques imported from Gaza and Chechnya that "have never been used in the West until now."

              "Europe is a new war zone for the Jihad," it says. "Know that our fight has only just begun."

              The paper had planned not to run the letter, but did so after authorities urged them to publish it.

              In it, the group mentions the September 11 terror attacks against the United States and the recent train bombings in Spain that killed 201 people.

              The group claims its members are in France, "ready to give their lives" and inflict "terror into the heart of the French people."

              "France will not be secure in its own country nor at its interests abroad."

              The group said it was waiting for three signs before moving forward: the headscarf vote; a "clear and explicit" signal from Ayman al-Zawahiri, al Qaeda's second in command; and a third signal it cannot reveal.

                  Daze,

                  It's a law enforcement matter.

                  And, frankly, it has never occured to me that "winning" a debate is important, or that I should be hurt when someone like Airshark or kah, among others (for whom winning a pseudo debate or declaring intellectual superiority over invisible others is obviously very important) ridicule me.

                    Not to sound crass, but what country has *not* been threatened by a Muslim group?

                      WASHINGTON, Jan. 8 Secretary of State Colin L. Powell conceded Thursday that despite his assertions to the United Nations last year, he had no "smoking gun" proof of a link between the government of Iraqi President Saddam Hussein and terrorists of Al Qaeda.

                      "I have not seen smoking-gun, concrete evidence about the connection," Mr. Powell said, in response to a question at a news conference. "But I think the possibility of such connections did exist, and it was prudent to consider them at the time that we did."

                      Mr. Powell's remarks on Thursday were a stark admission that there is no definitive evidence to back up administration statements and insinuations that Saddam Hussein had ties to Al Qaeda, the acknowledged authors of the Sept. 11 attacks. Although President Bush finally acknowledged in September that there was no known connection between Mr. Hussein and the attacks, the impression of a link in the public mind has become widely accepted and something administration officials have done little to discourage.

                          Iraq had nothing to do with the war on terror.
