One thing not emphasized in our earlier report on the latest issue of Al-Qaeda’s “Voice of Jihad” is that the organization is still threatening a major attack on American soil. Many such threats have proved baseless quite recently. Here’s hoping they continue to do so. This from UPI, with thanks to Jean-Luc:
The current strategy of al-Qaida is to pursue a major attack on the United States to provoke retaliation against Saudi Arabia, says a radical Muslim Web site.
An online magazine thought to be affiliated with al-Qaida describes a statement issued by Osama bin Laden indicating the next major attack will be on targets in the United States.
“We continue on our path and in our Jihad against America,” wrote Sheikh Abdallah al-Rashoud in the Jan. 20 issue of the online “Voice of Jihad.”
“We continue to strike at America and we expect that our next blow will cause the collapse of the situation (in Saudi Arabia) due to vengeful response, the first result of which will be the direct occupation of the oil sources and America’s entrance (into Saudi Arabia) with the aim of changing the situation from its foundations.”
