Paris was "...monitoring a certain number of people who study at extremist Koranic institutes, monitoring people likely to return" to France.
It is morbidly amusing to witness the Saudis, responsible for the largest portion of the funding and spread of jihad in the West, warn France of an impending jihadist attack. They want their women in those cloth coffins! It must be the ban that gives France favored hate status in Islam this week.
If the Saudis wanted to help, they would close the tens of thousands of the mosques they built that preach hate, racism, and incitement to violence. If the Saudis really wanted to help, they would shut down ICNA and all those terror-funding "charities" that fund jihad. If the Saudis really wanted to help, perhaps they might let their women drive, for starters. Maybe allow non-Muslims into Mecca? Or stop lashing women for taking tea with someone other than a relative? Or drop the boycott against the Jews?
Don't get me started.
How the West got into the position of crawling into a fetal position until the next Islamic attack is one that will leave historians (depending upon who writes the history books) scratching their heads for centuries.
PARIS (AFP) – Saudi security services warned several days ago about an Al-Qaeda threat to Europe and in particular France, French Interior Minister Brice Hortefeux said Sunday.
Several days ago European intelligence agencies received "a new message from the Saudi services which indicated that Al-Qaeda's branch on the Arabian Peninsula was possibly active or planned to be active" and was targeting "the European continent and in particular France", Hortefeux said in a radio and television interview.
"The threat is real and we remain alert," said the minister, adding that France's security threat level remains at one level below the highest level of scarlet.
The Saudi warning follows several warnings in the past weeks.
Hortefeux said on September 9 there was a warning from Interpol and then a week later a second warning of a possible attack by a female suicide bomber.
Western security officials have also warned that Al-Qaeda may be planning attacks in Europe similar to those that struck Mumbai in 2008.
