Al Qaeda Video: Sea of Blood in Denmark, Norway, France
A new al Qaeda video calls for turning Denmark, Norway, and France into a “sea of blood” in retalation for publishing cartoons of Mohammed.
A VIDEO by an al-Qaeda member posted on the Internet overnight calls on Muslims to attack Denmark, Norway and France for publishing cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed. “Muslims avenge your Prophet …. We deeply desire that the small state of Denmark, Norway and France … are struck hard and destroyed,” said Libyan Mohammed Hassan, who escaped from US custody at Bagram airbase in Afghanistan last July. “Destroy their buildings, make their ground shake and transform them into a sea of blood,” said Hassan, dressed in military fatigues and a black turban, and holding an assault rifle.
Hassan, also known as Sheikh Abu Yahia al-Libi, was one of four Arab terror suspects who broke out of the high-security detention facility at Bagram, the main US military base in Afghanistan.
It was unclear when the 35-minute video, produced by al-Sahab, a media organisation close to Al-Qaeda, was recorded.
Lovely. This strikes me as late in the day to capitalize on the anger over the cartoons, which seems to have subsided weeks ago. One hopes this is just perceived as the rantings of a madman.
