The Abu Hafs Al-Masri Brigades is a bogus terrorist organization
They have laid claim to all sorts of incidents as if they were perpetrated by the brigades. Now this "organization" has moved into the arena of repeated vague threats which they are completely incapable of following through on.

The only way this "group" could conceivable be successful as a terrorist cell is if people buy into their BS, and allow it to create fear in them. Once people realize that they are nothing more then some foriegn exchange student in London with a fax machine their effectiveness will be gone.

The Abu Hafs Al-Masri Brigades has been discredited for every attack they have claimed responsibility for in Al-Qaida's name.

They have not the ability to follow through on a single threat they have made.

Assessment of the Veracity of the Threats and Questions Concerning the Existence of the Organization
In MEMRI's estimation the "Brigades'" threats lack credibility for the following reasons:

Previous False Warnings: The "Brigades" have a long history of making false claims of responsibility for acts perpetrated by other organizations and events with no connection to terrorism, such as the blackout in the Northeast of the U.S. in August 2003, the attacks on the Jewish synagogues in Istanbul in November 2003, and the Madrid bombings of March 2004.

Lack of Valid Indications Proving the Existence of Such an Organization: Despite the high profile the organization presents in its statements claiming to engage in a wide range of activities in Iraq, Europe, and the United States, and alleging that it is structured according to geographical regions and operational departments, no operative with even a remote affiliation with such an organization has to this day been captured, and there is no information available about its leaders, such as can be found regarding leaders of other Islamist organizations even prior to their capture or killing.
