Or as Obama would call them, “man-caused disasters.”

Al Qaeda has issued a new threat to carry out ‘earth-shattering, shocking and terrifying’ attacks on the U.S. and Europe, it emerged today.

In a posting on a jihadist website, the terror group said the ‘coming strikes’ would target the ‘heart of the land of non-belief’ as well as countries aiding France in its crackdown on rebels in Mali.

The unidentified writer claimed the attacks would be ‘group and lone-wolf operations, in addition to the use of booby-trapped vehicles’.

U.S. officials say they are taking the threat seriously.

The message, posted on the Ansar al Mujahideen network on Sunday, carried the headline: ‘Map of Al Qaeda and its future strikes’.

It says: ‘Where will the next strike by al Qaeda be?

‘The answer for it, in short: The coming strikes by al Qaeda, with God’s Might, will be in the heart of the land of nonbelief, America, and in France, Denmark, other countries in Europe, in the countries that helped and are helping France, and in other places that shall be named by al Qaeda at other times.’
