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!
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...
Impossible, Baraq Hussein declared the WOT over, ergo, there is no more AQ..
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.
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.
Great Copyrighted Graphic here, shows current US fires... :
This is no surprise, its the same thing that the Paleoswinians have done in Israel for many years.
It would be so easy to do this in the US. I wonder if the fires in eastern Washington were set by Jihadists?
What? Not Bush’s fault???
Smoky the Bear is pissed.
Some boids roosting in the trees must’ve crapped on a statue of Mohammed someplace.
But Al Qaeda is only doing it for economic and social justice!
yeah, we had this threat here, too
Not a surprise to ehar it, but a surprise to see they admit it!
Targeting a certain rock and exploding it would dissuade these vermin. (With my apologies to vermin.)
