In a second statement posted to the Abu Hafs al-Masri Brigades? website yesterday, July 10, 2005, the group claims that the attacks perpetrated in London last Thursday are ?but a start of a deadly war and a continuation of jihad? and includes Britain with the United States and Israel in ?evil?s axles.? The message indicates that the ?black fingerprints? of the British are evident in Iraq and Palestine, and European countries that continue to maintain an active involvement in Iraq, ?Denmark on top of them,? will not be safe.
The website also contains a biography of Abu Hafs al-Masri, taken from al-Battar No. 13, al-Qaeda?s online military publication. This particular issue instructs in the use of Rocket Propelled Grenades (RPGs), a warning to Muslims about approaching blasphemers and oppressors, and a eulogy for Abdulaziz al-Muqrin (Abu Hajer), the former leader of al-Qaeda in Saudi Arabia.
