Radical Islamist leader threatens Serbia


October 4, 2012

BUCHAREST -- Radical Islamist leader Omar Bakri has warned that terrorist attacks would be launched against Serbia, Bulgaria, Romania, and other countries in the region.

The reason for this, the Syria-born extremist told Bulgaria's newspaper 24 Chasa, is that those were "territories that belong to Islam".

Bakri further explained: "When Islam enters a territory, it becomes Islamic, therefore Islam is under obligation to eventually liberate it."

The Mediafax news agency is also reporting that he listed all "Muslim territories" as follows: "Spain, Bulgaria, Albania, Macedonia, Serbia, Kosovo and Bosnia":

"Spain, for instance, is a Muslim territory. Eastern Europe as well. Romania, Albania, Macedonia, Serbia, Kosovo, Bosnia... but due to its decision to send troops to Afghanistan and Iraq and its military cooperation with Israel, Bulgaria is also a legitimate target."

Bakri, who lived in London for 20 years, has been banned from returning to Britain after he left the country in the wake of the terrorist attacks in July 2005. He is considered to have "strong ties with Al Qaeda".

Romanian Foreign Minister Titus Corlatean reacted to the statements by saying that his was "primarily a Christian country", and that "there was no need to comment on various statements that have nothing to do with reality".

However, this official noted that Romania took on various strategic projects, such as NATO's missile defense shield, and that it was a strategic partner to the U.S. and NATO that planned on remaining "a faithful ally, regardless of risks".

He doesn't mention Portugal, Crimea, every island in the Mediterranean., the Caucasus, Idel-Ural, all of India, central-coastal Vietnam, the East Coast of Africa, Mindanao, South Sudan, East Timor.

A lot of territory was once under Muslim administration. But what's more important is establishing Islamic governance in places primarily inhabited by Muslims, today. Whether it's the Arabian Peninsula or Bayan Olgii.

You're missing the substructure upon which this comment was made: American/Brit concession of the Balkans to the Turks provided that they stay onside in Pax Americana.
