    The Islamic militant group that claimed responsibility for the Madrid train bombings has warned that its next targets could be Japan, Italy, Britain or Australia, an Arabic newspaper reported on Thursday.
    .The newspaper, Al Quds al Arabi, which is based in London, said on its Web site that it had received a statement from the group, the Abu Hafs al-Masri Brigades, in which the group reiterated its responsibility for bombings, which killed 201 people and wounded more than 1,600.
    ."Our brigades are getting ready now for the coming strike," said the statement, dated March 15. "Whose turn will it be next? Is it Japan, America, Italy, Britain, Saudi Arabia or Australia?"
    .The statement warned these countries that "the brigades of death are at your doors," adding that they would strike "with an iron hand at the right time and place."
    .The Australian and Japanese governments said on Thursday, a week after the Madrid bombings, that they would not be intimidated. In Perth, Australia, Foreign Minister Alexander Downer said that "organizations like Jemaah Islamiyah and Al Qaeda are not going to tell Australia what to do."
    .In Tokyo, Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi said Japan would "not be swayed." The newspaper's editor, Abdel Bari Atwan, told The Associated Press that Al Quds al Arabi received the statement by e-mail on Wednesday night. The paper has received other e-mailed statements from this group. On the evening of the Madrid bombings, the paper released an e-mail from Abu Hafs al-Masri in which it made the first claim of responsibility. "This statement is authentic," Atwan said, adding that the group previously took responsibility for last year's suicide attacks in Istanbul and on the United Nations headquarters in Baghdad. The United States believes that the Abu Hafs group lacks credibility and that it has only tenuous ties to Al Qaeda. In the past, the group has claimed responsibility for events to which they were not connected, including last summer's blackouts in North America and Britain. The Spanish authorities suspect that an Al Qaeda-linked cell carried out the bombings. Moroccan officials have said that the emerging evidence in the Madrid attacks points toward Ansar al-Islam, a guerrilla group blamed for attacks in Iraq, Jordan, Turkey and Morocco. Other groups believed to be involved in the bombings are Salafia Jihadia and Moroccan Islamic Combatant Group.
    .In its statement, Abu Hafs al-Masri said it was calling a truce in Spain to give the Socialist government, which was elected on Sunday, three days after the train attacks, time to carry out its pledge to withdraw troops from Iraq. The group appeared to boast it had the power to change governments. The Socialists, who have long opposed Spain's military involvement in Iraq, were running second in Spanish opinion polls until the bombings last Thursday.
    ."We change and destroy countries," the statement said. "We even influence the international economy, and this is God's blessing to us. We won't accept to be an object in this world, but a player, a strong player - with God's will."
    .The statement tells Americans that Abu Hafs al-Masri supports the re-election of President George W. Bush.
    ."We are very keen that Bush does not lose the upcoming elections," it said.
    .Addressing Bush, it said: "We know that a heavyweight operation would destroy your government, and this is what we don't want. We are not going to find a bigger idiot than you." The statement said Abu Hafs al-Masri needs what it called Bush's "idiocy and religious fanaticism" because they would "wake up" the Islamic world. Comparing Bush with his Democratic challenger, Senator John Kerry, the statement tells the president, "Actually, there is no difference between you and Kerry, but Kerry will kill our community, while it is unaware, because he and the Democrats have the cunning to embellish infidelity and present it to the Arab and Islamic community as civilization."
    .The group also repeated its claim of responsibility for the bombing of the UN headquarters in Baghdad last August, when 22 people were killed, including the UN's chief envoy to Iraq, Sergio Vieira de Mello.
    .The statement described the United Nations as "America's tail."
    ."The United Nations is a branch of the American Foreign Ministry," it said. "The crimes of the United Nations against Islam are countless. The way to get rid of that humiliation is through holy war that will continue until doomsday."
    Japan, Italy, Australia and Britain are listed

    [quote][b]The statement tells Americans that Abu Hafs al-Masri supports the re-election of President George W. Bush. [/b][/quote]

    which means they are hoping to sway the vote away from GWB, getting Americans to think they don&#39;t want kerri in office....well by matter of simple deduction we can easily reach a conclusion here&#33; :P
