The 21st Century Phenomenon



An Al Qaeda leader called, on Thursday 01/22/2009, for terror attacks on Britain in retaliation for Israel’s offensive in Gaza. Abu Yahya al-Liby urged the terror network’s followers to rise up like ‘angered lions’ and declared: ‘It is high time that this criminal country, I mean Britain, paid the price of its history.’

Speaking on a video posted on an Islamist website, the Libyan-born Al Qaeda recruiter continued: ‘There is no child who dies in Palestine . . . without this being the outcome of the (country) that handed Palestine to the Jews  (see also – Footage 11.19.08 ).

The rallying call came days after Al Qaeda’s leader Osama Bin Laden broke nearly a year of silence to call for attacks against Israel and its supporters. 

In the 31-minute video, Abu Yahya al-Liby said ‘infidel capitals’ should be made to experience the same horrors as civilians in Gaza during the three-week Israeli offensive which was halted at the weekend. ‘Make them taste the bitterness of war and the tragedies of homelessness and the misery of horror,’ he said. 

‘They should not be secure while our people (Palestinians) are scared,’ said Abu Yahya al-Liby, who also uses the names Mohammed Hassan Abu Baker and Mohammad Hassan al-Liby. Abu Yahya al-Liby Was the ringleader of the audacious Bagram Escape, on 07/11/2005.

The video was released 24 hours after Pakistan said it had arrested an Al Qaeda suspect, Zabi ul-Taifi, with possible links to the 2005 London bombings which killed 52 (see- Peshawar 01.22.09).
