Al Qaeda vows terror attacks against Britain

Feb 1 2013, 7:50am CST | by

London, Feb 1 (IANS) The Al Qaeda has vowed a series of terror strikes against Britain over London's involvement in a French-led operation against Islamist rebels in Mali.

London, Feb 1 — The Al Qaeda has vowed a series of terror strikes against Britain over London's involvement in a French-led operation against Islamist rebels in Mali.

The Sun said it was the first direct threat of revenge against Britain since Prime Minister David Cameron sanctioned military help for France.

Cameron also signed a "security partnership" with Mali's neighbour Algeria following the hostage crisis masterminded by wanted terrorist Mokhtar Belmokhtar.

Britain is sending 40 soldiers to Mali to assist in training local troops to combat the Al Qaeda.

The vow for vengeance was seen in an extremist website used by the Al Qaeda.

A man, identified as "Lover of Islam", said: "The attacks will be earth-shattering, shocking and terrifying."

The Sun earlier said Cameron would ask Algeria to let secret service MI6 hunt down Belmokhtar.

The one-eyed Belmokhtar masterminded the siege on a desert gas field in Algeria two weeks ago.

Algeria rejected Britain's offer of help during the hostage crisis, which saw the death of 38 foreigners including six Britons.

Pork-Barrel Promises Won't Halt The Rise Of The UK Independence Party

Oct 20 2014 6:17am CDT | Source: Business Insider

A coalition of business leaders and Conservative Party members of parliament are calling for a tax cut for Britain's tourism industry to undercut support for the UK Independence Party (UKIP) in Britain's seaside towns. But their plan is more likely to reveal the depths of concern among Prime Minister David Cameron's party than it is to blunt the appeal of UKIP. The Cut Tourism VAT campaign aims to lower the rate of value added tax on tourism from the current ...

Oct 14 2014 8:11am CDT | Source: National Post

U.K. lawmakers voted to recognize a state of Palestine, in a symbolic but potent indication of how public opinion has shifted since the breakdown of peace negotiations and the conflict in Gaza this summer. The House of Commons in London voted 274 to 12 late Monday to support a motion introduced by rank-and-file lawmakers that says “this house believes that the government should recognize the state of Palestine alongside the state of Israel.” Prime Minister David Cameron, al ...
