A jihadist group posting on an Islamic website calls the British “infidels” and “enemies of God.” One of the suicide bombers from the 7/7 bombings is called a “good Muslim” who wanted to wage jihad. And Muslims in Britain are still blandly asserting that this has “nothing to do with Islam.” How long will this state of denial persist?

A statement posted Friday on an Islamic website in the name of an al-Qaeda-linked group claimed responsibility for latest blasts targeting London’s transport system.
The group, Abu Hafs al Masri Brigade, also claimed responsibility for the July 7 bombings which killed 52 people and four suicide bombers….
“Our strikes in the depths of the capital of the British infidels our only a message to other European governments that we will not relent and sit idle before the infidel soldiers will leave the land of the two rivers,” said the statement….
“While we bless these strikes, our next attacks will be Hellish for the enemies of God,” said the latest statement.
“We will strike in the hearts of European capitals, in Rome, in Amsterdam and in Denmark where their soldiers are in still in Iraq pursuing their British and American masters,” the statement added.
The Abu Hafs al Masri Brigades are named after the alias given to Mohammed Atef, Osama bin Laden’s top deputy who was killed in a U.S. air strike in Afghanistan in November, 2001.
Experts have said that the group has no proven track record of attacks, and note it has claimed responsibility for events in which it was unlikely to have played any role, such as the 2003 blackouts in the United States and London that resulted from technical problems.
