Al-Qaeda Warns Germans to Vote for New Government and Withdraw from Afghanistan

September 19, 2009

(ChattahBox) — Al-Qaeda has posted a new video threatening Germany, if this month’s elections do not come out the way the terrorist organization wants, highlighting an increased threat level, the Interior Ministry has said.

In his nearly 26-minute video statement, German speaker Bekkay Harrach, who uses the pseudonym Abu Talha, spoke on the Al Qaeda video, issuing a threat connected to Germany’s troop presence in Afghanistan. Friday’s statement was Abu Talha’s third since January of this year.

“If the German people vote for peace, then the Mujahedeen will choose peace with Germany as well. If the people decides for a continuation of the war, it has delivered its own verdict. The parliamentary election is the people’s only opportunity to shape the policy of the country.”

He adds that “with the withdrawal of the last German soldiers, the last mujahedeen also will be withdrawn from Germany.”

He asked his Muslim “brethren” to “stay away from anything not vital for two weeks after the election,” the group said.

Germany has more than 4,200 soldiers in Afghanistan. The deployment is unpopular, but has not been a significant issue in the election campaign.

Germany’s federal prosecutors and Federal Criminal Police Office said the video was still being evaluated. Authorities have said Harrach, a German of Moroccan background, is believed to have lived for many years in Bonn and now to be in the Pakistan-Afghanistan border area.  Conservative German Chancellor Angela Merkel appears to be on track for re-election, although an opinion poll published on Friday showed her lead to be shrinking.

    It worked in Spain, so the German’s will likely follow Al-Qaeda’s “advice”. Why would they make the Muslim polulation about to overrun their country angry? The Muslim immigrants in Europe will win the battle for Europe in the maternity wards and welfare offices of Europe. Using the maternity wards they will demographically be a majority within two generations. The European rate of reproduction is now well below the death rate (under 1.5 in most coutries) while the Muslims there are reproducing at a rate of 4-5 times. That trend that leads to Muslim majorities in Spain, Germany, France and Italy is already mathematically irreversible. In the meantime they will use the generous socialist welfare system to bankrupt Europe’s treasury’s. So, “Old Europe” is heading toward self imposed extinction and Islamification. In the meantime Obama has put a knife in the back of Poland and Czechoslavakia by withdrawing their missile shield. What country would now trust American foreign policy. It would be wise for any country on the fence to start hedging their bets by making alliances and accomodations with Al-Quaeda.
    Well, I guess there’s always Switzerland…Oh, I forgot, they’re always neutral when it comes down to the protecting Democracy.
