Saudi intelligence services have warned of a new terror threat from al-Qaida in Europe, "notably France," Interior Minister Brice Hortefeux said Sunday.
He said the warning of a potential attack by al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula was received "in the last few hours, few days."
Europeans were informed that "al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula was doubtless active or envisioned being active" on the "European continent, notably France," Hortefeux said during a joint TV and radio interview.
"The threat is real," he said on RTL-LCI-Le Figaro's weekly talk show.
IF THEY CARRY OUT AN ATTACK, THEN WE SHOULD RAMP UP OUR COUNTER-ATTACKS IN PAKISTAN AND AFGHANISTAN AND... IRAN.
IF THEY CARRY OUT AN ATTACK AND WE DO NOTHING - OR FOLLOW A JURISPRUDENTIAL RESPONSE - THEN AL QAEDA IN IRAQ, YEMEN, THE SUDAN, KASHMIR, THE PHILIPPINES, AND HAMAS AND HIZBALLAH AND SYRIA AND IRAN WE ALL BE EMBOLDENED.
A GOOD AMERICAN PRESIDENT WOULD MAKE OUR ENEMIES - AND THEIR ENABLERS - FEARFUL.
OBAMA HAS ALREADY EMBOLDENED THEM; WE'VE BEEN ATTACKED HERE MORE THAN EVER: FORT HOOD, TIMES SQUARE.
WE NEED TO FIGHT BACK HARDER, NOT SET DEADLINES, NOT APPEASE AND NOT MAKE APOLOGIES.
THE FIRST STEP TO A BETTER STRONGER MORE FORWARD LEANING FOREIGN POLICY IS ELECTING A GOP CONGRESS THIS NOVEMBER.
THEN, TOSSING OBAMA OUT AND ON HIS ASS ASAP.
