By Jonathan Dienst and Shimon Prokupecz – “A computer graphic warning that al-Qaida will return soon to New York City has been posted on an internet site linked to the terror organization, and the NYPD and FBI say they are investigating.

The graphic was posted on a radical overseas website and shows the city skyline and reads: ‘Al Qaeda Coming Soon Again in New York.’

NYPD spokesman Paul Browne said the graphic appeared on a site that has hosted al-Qaida material before and is what the NYPD Intelligence Division refers to as a Category 1 website, meaning it is heavily used by Jihadi and al-Qaida adherents.

He added that the NYPD is working to try to determine what individual or group posted the threat on the website; it is now being spread across numerous extremist forums…

The NYPD says there is no evidence of any plot or new specific threat to the region. Al-Qaida web forums often post threats and rants from extremists and al-Qaida sympathizers.” Read more.

Flashback: Intelligence Sources Fear Iran is Helping Al Qaeda to Plot Another Major Terror Attack Against the West – “Iran and al Qaeda’s core leadership under Ayman al Zawahiri have established an operational relationship amid fears the terror group is planning an attack against the West.

Flashback: Federal Judge who ruled Iran behind 9/11 Vindicated with more Evidence – “… Iran has already threatened terror attacks on American soil. Remember the Iranian terrorist who was invited to the Oval Office? His name is Hadi al-Ameri and he is a longtime, close colleague of the man to whom the Ayatollah reportedly ordered to carry out terror attacks in the United States recently. If al-Qaeda worked with Iran to perpetrate the 9/11 attacks and the latter is now threatening more attacks against the United States, wouldn’t it make sense to see Iran take the leash off of al-Qaeda today?” Read more.
