Warsaw

Al Qaida has explicitly threatened Poland with Madrid-like terrorist attacks, Polish security officials said this week. A document in Arabic posted on an al Qaida Web site calls for jihad against Poland, helpfully identified as “a country in Central Europe on the coast of the Baltic Sea.” The document, written in the flowery style associated with the terrorist group, notes that Poland is a member of NATO with a strongly pro-American leader, President Alexander Kwasniewski. “We ask Allah: Let the earth swallow him!” it says of Kwasniewski. Poland has 2,500 troops stationed in Iraq.
