France warned of "pending" Al Qaeda attack

President Sarkozy may soon have an opportunity to show his loyalty to the US in the War against Islamic Radicalism; and the US might also have an opportunity to help France in its own deadly fight. Having travelled to France multiple times, and being somewhat of a Francophile, I must say that I hope they can head off anything serious; I much prefer the French as our friends and allies than as anti-American obstructionists (via Gateway Pundit):
The "Black Widow," Fatiha Mejjati, warned France of an Al-Qaeda attack.
She told the French daily Le Parisien that "France would be punished" soon.

Fatiha El-Mejjati is the widow of Karim Mejjati a French-Moroccan killed in April 2005 and the suspected mastermind of the Madrid terrorism attacks on March 11, 2004.

Fatiha Mejjati, the "black widow" of Al-Qaeda warned recently that France would be the "target" of terrorism attacks and would be "punished soon," French daily Le Parisien reported on Monday.

Mejjati is the widow of Karim Mejjati (pictured), a French-Moroccan killed in April 2005 in Saudi Arabia. Karim had been suspected of masterminding the terrorism attack on March 11, 2004 in the Spanish capital Madrid that left 195 people dead.

In an exclusive interview with the daily, Mejjati, who now lives in the Moroccan city of Casablanca, said France would be "punished" for "its fidelity to the United States."

"France will no longer be set apart nor be protected", she said, adding French foreign policy is currently aligned with that of the United States and France's political independence in the period of former President Jacques Chirac no longer exists.
