Don’t forget to thank Gloria Macapagal Arroyo and JosÃ© Luis Rodriguez Zapatero every time you read a story like this. From the Copenhagen Post, with thanks to Ali Dashti:
Ritzau news bureau was unable to reach the Security Intelligence Service (PET) for comment on Sunday, after terrorist threats were made against this country on a website registered to the Iraqi group Abu Bakr al-Seddiq. The group, which claims to have ties to al-Qaida, threatened to wage jihad and target Denmark with car bombs, if the country failed to withdraw its forces from Iraq.
PET chief Lars Findsen issued a press release on Sunday afternoon, after news of the threat was made public.
‘It is difficult to say anything more precise about the authenticity or seriousness of the latest threat. Nonetheless, it is no secret that there is a generally heightened terror threat level toward the West and its interests. The same is true of Denmark, and the seriousness of this threat, particularly in Europe, was underscored following this year’s terrorist attacks in Madrid,’ Findsen stated.
