“While they are in their enemy’s den.” Qassim al Rimi obviously thinks that Islam is at war with the U.S. He must be a greasy Islamophobe. “Boston Bombings: Al Qaeda Chief In New Warning,” from Sky News, June 2 (thanks to Kenneth):
Al Qaeda’s affiliate in Yemen has said the Boston blasts revealed America’s fragile security and showed making bombs was within “everyone’s reach”.
Qassim al Rimi, the military chief of the group, urged Muslims in America to “carry on with this way” and defend their religion in an audio message posted online.
In “A letter to the American people”, he said: “The Boston events … and the poisoned letters (sent to the White House), regardless of who is behind them, show that your security is no longer under control, and that attacks on you have taken off and cannot be stopped.
“Everyday you will be hit by the unexpected and your leaders will not be able to defend you.”…
Al Rimi also said the killing of Al Qaeda’s founder Osama bin Laden in May 2011 and top Yemeni-American cleric Anwar al-Awlaki in September 2011, had not ended the struggle.
“Have you eliminated the jihadist groups that have spread everywhere after they had only been in Afghanistan? Today, they are in your land or close to it,” he warned.
To the Muslims in the US, he said: “We encourage you to carry on with this way, be steadfast in your religion.
“Carry out your obligations, defend your religion and follow in the footsteps of those who supported their religion and Ummah (Muslim nation) while they are in their enemy’s den.”…
