Holy Crap. The other shoe drops, again.
LONDON, England (CNN) -- A previously unknown group calling itself the "Secret Organization Group of al Qaeda of Jihad in Europe" has released a statement claiming responsibility for the subway and bus bombings in London.
CNN could not confirm the authenticity of the statement, which was posted Thursday on a Web site connected to Islamic radicals.
The statement said Islam and "Arabism" could "rejoice for it is time to take revenge from the British Zionist Crusader government in retaliation for the massacres Britain is committing in Iraq and Afghanistan."
I wonder: How long until the first prominent lefty commentators unabashedly endorse that bottom-line justification, and claim that this never would have happened but for British participation in the war on terror?
There can be no quarter given to the terrorists, no negotiation; they must be crushed. To hesitate or yield is to pre-emptively surrender. This is just another demonstration of how vicious and barbaric they remain.
