The Olympic games coming up in August are not thought to be threatened by al-Queida attacks. But does this leave room for attacks from other
"THE 2004 Olympic Games in Athens are not currently considered a target by the al-Qaeda extremist network, the leader of the radical Islamic group
al-Mouhadjiroun said in remarks published today."
Many do not believe that the games in Athens will be dangerous, but Omar Bakri Mohammed warns that if, "the Greek government change positions and
start getting more involved and supporting the US position against Muslims, at that point, yes, you will be in real danger."
After reading that excerpt, I thought to myself..."Nahhh...really?" Look at it this way, if ANY country changed posistions and joined the US they
would be targeted. I never really thought that a large attack on the Olymic games would be attempted, seeing how many countries, harboring and not
harboring terrorists, will be there.
But I guess this is reassuring to any ticket holders, athletes, and coaches planning on traveling to the games.
But the interesting thing about the article is that it does not confirm or deny that terrorist attacks from groups other than al-Quieda
One down, 500 to go?
