Special Dispatch - No. 2576 October 4, 2009 New Threat Message Warns: Al-Qaeda Will Attack Germany on a Sunday in October
The Al-Falluja jihadist forum has posted a new threat message to Germany specifying that attacks will be carried out on one of the Sundays in October. It is titled "To the Infidel German Nation: We Bestow on You the Kindness, for the Third Time, of Specifying the Appointed Day!" The message, which is being heavily promoted by Al-Falluja, is the latest in a series of threats to appear on the forum  following the release of Al-Qaeda videos threatening attacks in Germany. 
This message had a strange rollout. Early on October 3, 2009, a forum member called Abu Hamza 2005 wrote a post titled "Welcome to the new member Mou10ra11bitt18oun25!" He wrote that when browsing the Al-Falluja forum he had come across this newly-registered user, and that the username reminded him of "p2l0a0g8u9e," a member on the now-defunct Al-Ekhlaas forum who, in May 2008, posted a video threatening the destruction of the U.S. in a nuclear strike.
The Al-Falluja moderators made Abu Hamza 2005's article a featured post.  About 12 hours later Mou10ra11bitt18oun25 posted his threat;  it was a featured post, and was later given a banner on the top of the Al-Falluja home page.
A jihadist media workgroup that had been formed ahead of time to distribute threats to German forums and emails  took the post by Mou10ra11bitt18oun25 as their go signal and began to distribute it.

Hmm, I thought these people preferred to strike during busy times, why pick a Sunday? And why pick 6:25 pm, everyone will be at home.

This appears to be a good counter-intelligence blog.
Not much is allowed to be open in Germany on Sundays. Truly, everyone will be home.
The roads sure are empty on Sundays.
islam my A$$
The only Sundays left are the 11th, 18th, and 25th. Based on the past,I would wager that the smart money would have to go with the 11th... We’ll be in the middle of a 3-day weekend here in the States, and on US military bases in Germany. More audacious than that would be an attack on 2 or all 3 of those Sundays.
I would seriously consider that they are lying about the day of the week.
