France Says It Received Threat by Islamist Group

1 hour, 24 minutes ago Add World - Reuters to My Yahoo!

PARIS (Reuters) - France has received threats of a possible attack against French interests from an Islamist group, the Justice Ministry said in a statement Tuesday.

The ministry said it had received a warning which spoke of possible attacks within France and against French interests abroad from a group called "Servants of Allah the Powerful and Wise."

"These are threats articulated in such a way that they are being taken very seriously," a judicial source told Reuters.

The ministry statement said the Paris prosecutor's office had immediately launched an inquiry.

"It is obviously not yet possible to comment on the value of this document," the statement concluded.

Security experts say France is a target because of its cooperation with authorities fighting Islamic militants in its former North African colonies Algeria, Tunisia and Morocco.

Several members of hard-line Algerian Islamic groups are currently being held in French jails.

How can this be?........France went against the U.S. in the war in Iraq

You mean it is possible that Al Qaeda is actually at war with Western society, or civilized nations, or Muslim nations that do not agree with their ideology?

there are three very good reasons why France is a target:

France has troops in Afghanistan, Al Qaeda's homeland.

France has also been helping the US' war on terror as far as detaining & questioning suspects.

France has oil interests in the Middle East, inlcuding oil platforms in Pakistan, another home of Al Qaeda.

I hope you realize I was being sarcastic, but if not, thanks for the lesson in the obvious
