Swedish blasts only the beginning - Qaeda

2010-12-13 22:30

Dubai - An internet posting on Monday, attributed to a senior al-Qaeda leader in Iraq, warned that last weekend's deadly bombings in Stockholm were "only the beginning", and threatened attacks against Nato and Europe.

In an audio recording on the Shumukh al-Islam Islamic website, a man identified as Abu Suleiman al-Nasser, a leader of the al-Qaeda affiliate in Iraq, warned that the Sweden attacks were "only the beginning of a new era in our jihad", or holy war.

Suleiman, who is "war minister" of the Islamic State of Iraq (ISI), warned Nato countries to "withdraw their troops from Afghanistan immediately and unconditionally", and to "stop their war against Islam".

Otherwise, "you'll have no security" and "expect that we will strike at the heart of Europe", the speaker warned in the nearly two-minute recording.

In a separate communiqué signed in his name, the previously unheard of Partisans of Islamic Jihad urged jihadists to try to wreak havoc during the Christmas and New Year holidays in the West with false reports of imminent attacks.

"Take care in the coming days to sow terror and panic in unholy ground," said the statement on the Shumukh al-Islam site. "We want to terrify with false alerts."

The same website on Sunday identified the bomber behind Saturday's attacks in Stockholm as Taimur Abdelwahab and published a photograph it said was him.

Sweden's top prosecutor on Monday "confirmed 98%" that "the man who blew himself up" in a busy pedestrian quarter of the Swedish capital following a car explosion, was Abdelwahab.

The twin blasts rocked a shopping street in central Stockholm, killing a man suspected of being the bomber and wounding two others.

    Funny that nobody has commented on this post.Silence and neutrality favors the oppressor.

    So what would happen if the withdrawel takes place is I want to know. Will the terror stop?

      Observer - 2010-12-14 07:51

      Good question. Next will be to stop using full-cream milk or any other ridiculous notion.

    There the muslims go again. They are a peaceful nation, and any terror and murder attacks done in the name of islam is ok.

      gmck21 - 2010-12-14 08:37

      indeed. cowardly acts that shame their nation. for every suicide bomb detonated the world should react 100 fold

    IF catolics do the same, puting car bombes in muslim contres what will hapen?

  • Nico - 2010-12-14 06:10

    These muslims are a bunch of self hatred people, a bunch of idiots, a bumch of people that will go to hell. They are just plain pathetic.

      I dont think it is fair to judge the entire muslim population based on the actions of a few spineless fools who use their religion to carry out acts of terror. The muslim religion like any other practices peace and goodwill towards others. These terrorists have misconstrued the words in their holy books. There are muslims in Afghanistan and Pakistan who also suffer at the hands of the terrorists. And no I am not muslim...I am just being objective.

      True Lalla, however, most, if not all Muslims rejoiced the day the Twin Towers fell.

      Zee - 2010-12-14 11:18

      @Nico & pop101 - Sorry I disagree. Every single Muslim i know is against the bombing of the towers - remember there are over a billion Mulims across the globe, many of whom live in secular modernised societies and value most of the same morals that their countrymen do. SA is a good example in my opinion. Blame Al-Qaeda, blame terrorism, but to blame Islam as a whole is ignorant and small-minded frankly. Comments like yours serve only to create more of these thugs. But I wouldn't expect someone like you to understand that. It's like saying every catholic male is a paedophile.

    Where is this Shumukh al-Islam Islamic website based? Why have they not been taken out for spreading this shit? If there really is a WAR on terror, wouldnt you expect that the enemy will be attacked at some point? These guys are just left alone, to become the voice of these al-queda arseholes. Cut off these internet connections, and make an example of these lot as to what will happen if you entertain or enable these al-queda fuckwits. Either fight a war, or go home.

      Limpopoist - 2010-12-14 12:07

      IF wikileaks can be removed then why is these torrorist website been removed. OR it is just part of ILLIMINATI,were people invested on wars

  • Observer - 2010-12-14 08:07

    Why has our government not condemned the bombing? They're always so quick to stick their nose into business that doesn't affect them, why not stick their noses in here and condemn the bombing? (Or am I being delusional?)

      gmck21 - 2010-12-14 08:39

      because they are shit scared terrorists will target SA. remember we have a large muslim population...PERSONALLY i think we should speak out against it. we SHOULD

      gmck21 - 2010-12-14 08:39

      sorry.. WE should be in somalia stemming the influx of terrorism into africa. enough is enough

    I think all these extremists like the idiotic nut bag that wants to blow himself and innocent people up are all crazy. They are brain dead, and have no will of there own. They are the most moronic idiots I have ever heard of. What is the point of it, except killing themselves and innocent people? Do they seriously think they are getting their so called 70 virgins in heaven? Please that is the biggest loads of bulls**t I have ever heard of. You don't get rewarded for committing suicide you bunch of cowardly moronic brain dead nitwits. I wish there was some that could make them see the light or the error of their ways.

      Zee - 2010-12-14 11:21

      Well said - suicide is a sin for which one gets condemned to hell for eternity in Islam. Why they think they will go to heaven is beyond me, it's all in the Quran, the very book they pretend to preach! They are total idiots with hidden agendas and they are using innocent lives as their pawns.

  • Darwinian - 2010-12-14 08:16

  • gmck21 - 2010-12-14 08:36
