Statement Attributed to Al-Qaida Warns of More Attacks

An Arab TV reporter says he has received a statement from Al-Qaida threatening more attacks unless America stops supporting Israel and converts to Islam. Yosri Fouda is a correspondent for the satellite station Al-Jazeera. He tells The Associated Press he received an unsigned, six-page document a day after the TV station broadcast an audiotape purportedly made by Osama bin Laden.

Fouda quoted the statement as saying: "Stop your support for Israel against the Palestinians ... (and) leave us alone or expect us in Washington and New York."

He wouldn't say how he got the letter but insisted he was certain it came from the terrorist movement's leadership. He added the statement justified the killings of American civilians because they pay taxes that finance military operations.

Fouda has broken several stories about Al-Qaida.
