  • Very well, then we insist we be transported where we can hope to board a jetliner to escape to an Arab country.

  • Shooting at Munich Airport

  • The warning call 
  • *weeks later*
  • We've carried out our acts of violence, starting when we shot as Wasif-Al-Tali and our attempted assassinations to kill King Hussein and Zaid Al-Rifai in December and recently the shootings at Furstenfeldbruck. We've lost some of our members in these acts. I'm calling to let you know we should all be aware of the possible actions Israel may take in response to the massacre...
