A Pakistani journalist has warned that he has received a message from Islamic terrorists for all Muslims to get out of America. Jamal Ismail says he received a phone call last week from a politician connected with the Taliban in Afghanistan, stating that America could face a major terrorist attack to rival that of September 11th during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan. What is worrying is that a similar message was received by another Pakistani journalist last month, warning US Muslims to get out of New York and Washington.
Quote: "Jamal Ismail is the journalist who received the message. He formerly worked for al-Jazeera. He told the News of Pakistan that he received a phone call Oct. 5 from Afghani. "Afghani said he was speaking from somewhere in Kandahar province," reported Ismail. "In it, he advised Muslim residents of America to get out to escape harm because the U.S. could face big attacks in the month of Ramadan." Ismail said it was the first time Afghani, who is head of the pro-Taliban cleric's consultative council and former ambassador of Afghanistan to Pakistan, had ever sent such a message. "Afghanis didn't say that it was a dream," recalled Ismail. "It appeared that he strongly believed that America was going to face punishment at the hands of Allah."
Several US intelligence analysts have stated they believe Al-Qaida may have already smuggled at least two nuclear devices across the Mexican border. Al-Qaida also published a list of major American cities they were planning to target, all of which included large Jewish populations.
