Responding to the Salafist Group for Call and Combat?s (GSPC) recent message to French Muslims to attack Algerian leaders in France, members of a password-protected al-Qaeda affiliated forum voiced their pleasure with the words, and requested photos and details of the Algerian leaders so as to answer the call. One member responds with a photo of Belkheir Larbi, a Major General of the Algerian National Popular Party, and brands him the ?[b]iggest criminal in history,? as another provides a link to the party?s website for a collection of photographs of the leaders.
Further, another member responds: ?The message is clear, the targets are known, and the sons of Islam are after them who will volunteer for that.?
