Al-Qaeda blamed for Europe-wide forest fires
The Telegraph ^ | 10/3/2012

Posted on 10/03/2012 1:55:18 PM PDT by bruinbirdman

Al-Qaeda has been blamed for a recent series of forest fires across Europe, as the head of Russia's Federal Security Service claimed they were set by arsonists as part of the group's low-cost attack strategy.

"One should note that setting fires to forests in the countries of the European Union is a new tendency in al-Qaeda's strategy of a 'thousand cuts'," Alexander Bortnikov said, according to state news agency RIA Novosti, at a meeting of heads of security agencies.

"This method allows (al-Qaeda) to inflict significant economic and moral damage without serious preliminary preparations, technical equipment or significant expenses."

In linking al-Qaeda to the deadly wildfires, Mr Bortnikov pointed to calls to launch a "forest jihad" by various extremist websites which he said also publish detailed instructions about how and where to best carry out arson.

He said it was very difficult for special services to find and prosecute

So, I guess now we will see the Sierra Club and Friends of the Earth issue strong condemnations against al-Qaeda!

Right?

We’re still waiting...

Yup Al-Q sent a message for believers to light fires in the USA too.

But the press blamed “shooters” for several Utah and Colorado fires, and never mentioned the Al-Q issue at all.

Even when the whole world has been turned into a barren desert, the sand maggots will still not be happy.

But at least everything will look like meccah and medina...

I have thought that the fires were arsonist related. Nothing cheaper than a box of matches and some gas to set an entire state on fire.

Revelation 8

6 Then the seven angels who had the seven trumpets prepared to sound them.

7 The first angel sounded his trumpet, and there came hail and fire mixed with blood, and it was hurled down on the earth. A third of the earth was burned up, a third of the trees were burned up, and all the green grass was burned up.

Yet how many more of these guys have we allowed to come and stay here since even 9/11?

We think we’re safer if we spend ever more hundreds of billions on our military—and yet we leave our front and side and back doors wide open.

I really don’t know that we’ll learn in time.

It would be so easy to do this in the US. I wonder if the fires in eastern Washington were set by Jihadists?

Targeting a certain rock and exploding it would dissuade these vermin. (With my apologies to vermin.)

When inviting them domestically, Obama

Thousands of Korans should be hidden throughout forests. Let the jahadists know that burning a forest means burning Korans. Lots of Korans.

I always thought so too. I remember saying recently that I never heard of so many forest fires before in my life. You would here of one here or there, but not with the frequency you hear about them in the last few years.

Patrol and shoot. Feral creatures will handle the cleanup.

They wouldn’t care. Stinking sub-human, sub-animal creatures.

Thanks for the ping. I wonder if we’ll ever hear about this outside of the UK publications.
