“He who warns is excused.” Not by me, buddy, not by me. From CNN:
LONDON, England (CNN) — A previously unknown group calling itself the “Secret Organization Group of al Qaeda of Jihad in Europe” has released a statement claiming responsibility for the subway and bus bombings in London.
CNN could not confirm the authenticity of the statement, which was posted Thursday on a Web site connected to Islamic radicals.
The statement said Islam and “Arabism” could “rejoice for it is time to take revenge from the British Zionist Crusader government in retaliation for the massacres Britain is committing in Iraq and Afghanistan.”
“The heroic mujahideen have carried out a blessed raid in London,” the statement said, translated from Arabic.
A “blessed raid.” A raid blessed by God. This, my friends, is the sheerest, most vivid barbarity in the world today. Those who traffic in moral or theological equivalence should recoil in shame today.
“Britain is now burning with fear, terror and panic in its northern, southern, eastern and western quarters. We have repeatedly warned the British Government and people.”
The statement said the group had carried out the attack after exerting “strenuous efforts over a long period of time to ensure its success.”
“We continue to warn the governments of Denmark and Italy and all the Crusader governments that they will be punished in the same way if they do not withdraw their troops from Iraq and Afghanistan,” it said. “He who warns is excused.”
