For having the effrontery to elect the “crusader and Zionist” Sarkozy instead of the dhimmi Royal. From AFP, with thanks to James:
DUBAI, May 15, 2007 (AFP) – An Al-Qaeda front group in Europe threatened on Tuesday to launch bloody attacks in France in response to the election of “crusader and Zionist” Nicolas Sarkozy as president.
“As you have chosen the crusader and Zionist Sarkozy as a leader … we in the Abu Hafs al-Masri Brigades warn you that the coming days will see a bloody jihadist campaign … in the capital of Sarkozy,” the group’s “Europe division” said in an Internet statement addressed to the French people.
The campaign will be “against all those who allow themselves to follow the policy” of the US administration, said the statement whose authenticity could not verified.
