Zawahri tells Muslims to join Mideast conflict
Al-Qaida No. 2 says ‘the world is a battlefield’ in taped message
Blah blah blah:
Al-Qaida’s No. 2 leader issued a worldwide call Thursday for Muslims to rise up in a holy war against Israel and join the fighting in Lebanon and Gaza until Islam reigns from “Spain to Iraq.”
In a taped message broadcast by Al-Jazeera television, Ayman al-Zawahri said the terrorist organization would not stand idly by while “these (Israeli) shells burn our brothers.
Ooh. He’s mad.
And now the Al Qaeda Bird & Garden Club has suddenly become angry with those who support Israel. I mean, it’s not like this is a “no more mister nice guy” message, or anything. The folks who intentionally target civilians, behead prisoners, and subjugate their own followers are taking off the kid gloves?
Give me a break. I have no doubt that they intend to strike. I’m just unconvinced that there’s any relevance to this announcement. Like most of these AQ press releases, it seems targeted more to their own crowd than to anyone else.
