Italy 8/11?

From Haaretz Daily:
A statement attributed to Al-Qaida posted on an Islamist website Saturday threatened to stage attacks in Italy if Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi remained in power.

Signed in the name of the Abu Hafs al-Masri brigades, the statement said: "This is the final warning for the people of Italy. You either get rid of incompetent Berlusconi or we will truly burn Italy."

The Abu Haf al-Masri Brigades had claimed responsibility for the March 11 attacks in Madrid and the November 2003 bombings in Istanbul.

Matt's Chat

I don't see Italy behaving the way Spain and the Philippines did. The Italians have heart and know that the War on Terror can not be won with appeasement.

This is exactly what we predicted would happen though. Once Spain joined the Axis of Surrender Monkeys, al Qaeda has it in their heads that they can control Europe. Will Italy prove them wrong? I hope so...
