London, Oct. 9 (ANI): A new terror video has surfaced showing an al-Qaeda terrorist waving a giant razor-sharp blade and vowing to achieve a victory for Islam over British and US troops in Afghanistan.
The Sun quoted a military source, as saying: "If anyone needed reminding, this is the face of the enemy."
In the video posted on a terrorist website, 'Abu Askar the German,' brandishes the knife that could behead or dismember any hostage his terror group grabs.
"The bloodthirsty threat of Abu Askar the German and his giant cleaver is plain - anyone who opposes us will lose their heads," Terrorism expert and author Chris Dobson said.
"Abu Askar and his knife are undoubtedly part of the 'war of the mind' the Jihadists are waging against the West. But they also reflect a growing confidence, especially among home-grown terrorists, that the West is becoming vulnerable," he added.
Askar, who is seen sitting with an AK47 rifle, boasted that the terrorists have attracted recruits from all over Europe as well as from Russia and China.
Recently, Britain's Army commander, General Sir David Richards, had warned about the possibility of losing the war in Afghanistan to men like Askar.
"Failure would have a catalytic effect on militant Islam because the message would be that al-Qaeda has defeated the most powerful alliance in the world," he had said. (ANI)
