Islamic militants headquartered in Iraq have threatened Germany and Austria with terrorist attacks if they don’t withdraw their forces from Afghanistan:
“In standing by the United States… you have provoked those whom you call terrorists to target you,” the man said in Arabic, with a German translation appearing on the screen as the flags of Germany and Austria appeared in front of a burning background.
The terrorists also threatened to murder two German nationals who were kidnapped in Iraq.
Germany’s record in such matters is not a proud one. But perhaps, under Chancellor Merkel, the Germans will show more fortitude.
