An endorsement you don’t want

I doubt the SPD in appreciate this implicit endorsement:

AL-Qaeda has warned Germans to change their government in the September 27 election, saying they will face a “bad awakening” if they do not, according to two intelligence monitoring services.

Germany was also told to withdraw its 4200 troops from Afghanistan or face being attacked at home, the US-based groups said.

In video footage a man identified as Abu Talha the German, and speaking in German, says that if Chancellor Angela Merkel is re-elected, “bitter times await the Germans,” according to IntelCenter and the SITE Intelligence Group. …

He appears to suggest that if German voters do not heed his warnings, Al-Qaeda will act within a fortnight.

The SDP candidate for Chancellor is actually the Foreign Minister in the grand coalition Government, so I doubt there will be a huge change either way.
