Al Qaeda Preparing Response To Rushdie Knighthood

(NTARC) Al-Qaeda second-in-command Ayman al-Zawahiri said on Tuesday the group is preparing a “precise response” to Britain’s decision to bestow a knighthood on author Salman Rushdie.“I say to (Britain’s Queen) Elizabeth and (former British Prime Minister Tony) Blair that your message has reached us and we are in the process of preparing for you a precise response,” Zawahiri said in an audio recording posted on an Internet website often used by Islamic militants. Addressing British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, the al-Qaida deputy chief said Britain’s strategy in the Middle East “has brought tragedy and defeat upon you, not only in Afghanistan and Iraq but also in the center of London.” This appeared to be a reference to the deadly London transit network bombings which occurred just about two years ago. “And if you did not understand, listen, we are ready to repeat it for you,” al-Zawahri was quoted as warning the British prime minister.
