AL SHABAAB WARN OF TERROR IF QATADA EXTRADITED
Qatada was to be extradited to Jordan a few days but there was a last minute (deliberate?) hiccup over deadlines. Somehow the Home Office lawyers got it wrong!
Now al-Shabaab have warned of terror in Great Britain if Qatada is extradited.
But perhaps of more significance is that al-Shabaab is al Qaeda in...SOMALIA!
Yes. Somalia. Named on that list of seven countries given to General Wesley Clark.
Of all the places al Qaeda is based in, it has to be from Somalia, the nation also recently named as the new focus of terror by Great Britain. Not al Qaeda in Nigeria. Not al Qaeda in the Caucasus. Not al Qaeda in Yemen. But al Qaeda in Somalia.
And Somalia, with all its recently discovered oil reserves that if exploited would make Somalia the seventh largest producer of oil.

The Al Qaeda militants warned of a “disaster” for Britain if the Government attempts to send Qatada back to Jordan.
SITE Intelligence Group, which monitors online activity from terrorist groups, said al-Shabaab had issued a warning on militant forums.
"The British public is also forewarned that it will be the British government, as a result of its imprudence, that shall be liable for any disaster that befalls them, or their national interests," the statement said, according to SITE.
It comes a week after Al-Qaeda threatened to attack Britain if it decides to extradite Qatada.
In a statement signed by Al-Qaeda’s general command and published on jihadist forums, the terror network said Abu Qatada's extradition would “open the gates of evil” on “Britain and its citizens everywhere.”
