They're mighty brave in cyberspace: Al-Zarqawi Death Prompts Attack Warning.
CAIRO, Egypt (AP) – Al-Qaida in Iraq vowed Sunday to carry out "major attacks," insisting in a Web statement that it was still powerful after the death of leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi.The statement did not name a successor to al-Zarqawi, who was killed by a U.S. airstrike last week. But it said the group's leadership "renews its allegiance" to Osama bin Laden.
It vowed "to prepare major attacks that will shake the enemy like an earthquake and rattle them out of sleep."
Your problem is that we aren't sleeping, you brood of vipers.
Update: Charles at LGF notes something interesting about this article; it was revised to edit out an outrageous phrase:
The phrase echoed the words used by the Prophet Muhammad’s successor, Abu Bakr, after the prophet’s death in the 7th century to urge Muslims to continue spreading Islam.
Notice, it’s not a quote. That’s pure shilling for jihad, and it’s extremely unlikely to have been written by a non-Muslim.
But even more interesting is this later version of the same article, which appears to have been cleaned up by an editor who recognized how outrageous (and revealing) the first version was:
The phrase echoed the words used by the Prophet Muhammad’s successor, Abu Bakr, after the prophet’s death in the 7th century to urge Muslims to stick to their new faith.
Well now, that’s quite a different message, isn’t it?
