Kissing Arafat for nothing
An Algerian Islamist organisation, the Salafist Group for Preaching and Combat (GSPC), has issued a call for action against France, which it describes as "enemy No 1", intelligence officials said on Tuesday.
"The only way to teach France to behave is jihad and the Islamic martyr," said the group's leader, Abu Mossab Abdelwadoud, also known as Abdelmalek Dourkdal, in an internet message earlier this month.
According to police reports, the suspects were considering attacks on the Paris metro system and an airport but had not reached the point of selecting a final target.
Remember that stupid journalist that kept asking Blair to admit that the 7/7 London bombings where linked to UK’s involvement in Iraq? If you see him, please tell him not to ask the same question to Sarkozy at the next press briefing in Paris.
