al-Qaeda threatens the EU again. Europeans cover their ears.
In a new audio message purportedly from Osama Bin Laden, the al-Qaeda leader threatens the EU over the re-printing of a cartoon offensive to Muslims. Oh that warmongering pope!
The voice on it says the cartoon, re-published recently in all major Danish newspapers, was part of a crusade involving Pope Benedict XVI.
In fact what's sadder is that in view of this purported threat which "premiered" on Al Jazeera and is purported to be from "Ben" Laden, a search of Le Monde's archives, that "independant" news paper of record, yields something even sadder: a goofy bit of artist-dabbling-in-politicking taking a kind of one-man-show vainglory.
