Nov 8, 2004 “” DUBAI (Reuters) – A little-known Islamist group has threatened to carry out attacks in the Netherlands following a series of attacks on Muslim buildings there, according to an Internet statement posted on Tuesday.
“We ask you for the last time, and you still have a chance, to stop the attacks on our mosques, schools and the Muslim community in Holland “¦ before you pay a heavy price,” Islamic Tawhid Brigades said in a statement dated Nov. 9 and posted on a Web site used by Islamists….
“We will not stand with our hands tied and we will make the Dutch government and people pay dearly,” Islamic Tawhid said in the statement, whose authenticity could not be verified.
Tawhid is the Islamic concept of the absolute unity of God.
