WASHINGTON – A dozen young terrorists have departed Afghanistan, bound first for Iran and then Europe, where their mission will be to hunt down the Danish cartoonists responsible for drawing anti-Muhammad sketches, according to a report in Joseph Farah’s G2 Bulletin.
The report was passed on by Hamid Mir, the Pakistani journalist who has interviewed al-Qaida leaders Osama bin Laden and Ayman al-Zawahiri and who just visited the no-man’s land along the border of Afghanistan and Pakistan.
While there, he was told by Taliban sources in south Waziristan that 12 young men – nine Afghans and three Pakistanis – are on their way to Europe to kill the Danish cartoonists. While some carry Afghan passports and others carry Iranian passports, all will travel through Iran on their way to Europe, he reports.
All 12 have recorded the video messages that will be aired publicly if they hit their targets.
In his most recent audio communiqu?, aired on Al-Jazeera last week, Osama bin Laden called for a global Muslim boycott of American goods similar to the recent boycott of Danish products after the publication there of caricatures of the Muslim Prophet Muhammad. He also said the artists who drew those offending cartoons should be handed over to him for trial and punishment.
Earlier this year, 12 cartoons depicting Muhammad were published in Denmark’s Jyllands-Posten newspaper. Within weeks, the cartoons became an international controversy resulting in embassies being torched, Christians being slaughtered and fatwas being issued against those responsible.
