Persuasion, Islam style

Hat tip Atlas Shrugs for this:

DUBAI, May 15, 2007 (AFP) - An Al-Qaeda front group in Europe threatened on Tuesday to launch bloody attacks in France in response to the election of "crusader and Zionist" Nicolas Sarkozy as president.
"As you have chosen the crusader and Zionist Sarkozy as a leader ... we in the Abu Hafs al-Masri Brigades warn you that the coming days will see a bloody jihadist campaign ... in the capital of Sarkozy," the group's "Europe division" said in an Internet statement addressed to the French people. The campaign will be "against all those who allow themselves to follow the policy" of the US administration, said the statement whose authenticity could not verified.

Now, does this vicious threat make anyone think that the French have made a mistake. Are we to respond to this intimidation by invalidating the elections, and begging forgiveness. I think this statement over plays al-queda's hand by alot.
