MESSAGE ADDRESSED TO THE EUROPEAN GOVERNMENTS BY ABU HAFS AL MASRI BRIGADES
In the name of God, the Compassionate and the Merciful
Abu Hafs Brigades
Thanks to God our creator, prayer and peace upon the Mujahideen?s leader, and Imam of the Believers, Muhammad Bin Abdullah.
This message is addressed to the European governments.
Today, we have declared a bloody war against you. We will not stop our attacks, until you have come to your senses. After the expiration of the ultimatum given to you by Sheikh Usama Bin Laden, God preserve him, and since you have not come to your senses, we are declaring a fierce war against you. It is a war against your people who remained silent, and showed no reaction. This silence is an indication of their approval and support of you. We had already started our war, by threatening the Italian government, presided by the miserable Berlusconi. We started with Italy because of its dishonorable and shameful position, in following America, the head of Blasphemy.. Berlusconi, wait for us, you and your allies and supporters. Wait for our menace that we declared against you, and are now declaring against all of Europe.
We will create rivers [falls] of blood that will drag you to its depths. You have condemned your people to that. The blaspheming Europe has done the same to its people by following America.
We will destroy European cities, starting by you Berlusconi. The cities will bleed until all of you, European leaders and people, come to your senses. Withdraw your deadly missions from Iraq. Follow in the footsteps of your predecessors, before you taste the bitterness of blood.
Do not help America or the miserable leader of blasphemy Bush, or else, God willing, you will regret it bitterly.
The oppressors will realize what path they got themselves into.
Abu Hafs Brigades
