Hamburg cell at heart of terrorist plot against Europe

A group of jihadists from the German city of Hamburg are alleged to be at the heart of the recent al Qaeda plot to launch co-ordinated terrorist attacks against European cities, according to European intelligence officials.

The plan prompted the U.S. State Department to issue a Europe-wide security advisory for Americans traveling in Europe.

Japan issued a similar alert Monday, citing the warnings issued by the United States and by Britain, which raised the level highest for France and Germany.

    Republicans = American al Qaeda. They both use religion, fear and violence to further their agendas. A vote for a tea partier or a republican is a vote for al Qaeda.

    I get a kick out of reading posts echoing that age-old (D) vs (R) thing. Like Hoss here thinking "keep them (D's) in and watch your FREEDOMS go bye-bye. hoss? Was it a (D) or an (R) leader who penned the "patriot act" ? You know, the one that took away some of our freedoms. While yer chewing on that, think about the "victory act" that has been written by the same individual, but as of yet hasn't been signed into law. If (D) vs (R) were white vs. black, those always siding with one party would be considered racist ya know.
