More post-election threats for the US. From the Daily Telegraph, with thanks to Kevin:
A GROUP linked to Osama bin Laden’s Al-Qaeda network threatened the United States with reprisals after the re-election of President George W. Bush, warning of “unbearable hell,” in a website statement today.
“The coming days will show you that the one you preferred will lead you to an unbearable hell,” said the group calling itself the Abu Hafs al-Masri Brigades after the Al-Qaeda military chief killed in Afghanistan in October 2001.
It was not possible to immediately verify the statement. The same group claimed responsibility for the train bombings in Madrid in March this year that killed 191 people in Spain’s worst attack and injured another 1,900.
“Although the criminal Bush has spilt blood of Muslims during the last four years and despite the butcheries that he committed and continues to perpetrate in Afghanistan, in Palestine and in Iraq, we see that… the applause of his people is increasing,” it said.
“This shows the nature of the American people who approved the war against Islam led by criminal America,” it added.
