At the rate Ayman al-Zawahri is issueing tapes, he has issued his seventh this year, he may rival the Beatles in their hayday.
His latest appears to be a plea for attention (along with others that have been scorned) as the world’s media swarms around Israel and Lebanon.
“The war with Israel does not depend on cease-fires … “It is a jihad (holy war) for the sake of God and will last until (our) religion prevails … from Spain to Iraq,” al-Zawahri said. “We will attack everywhere.”
Spain to Iraq? But I thought his objective and main target was flag waving infidels in America. Guess not and the return of Spain to the 15th century is also on his terror menu of death.
“All the world is a battlefield open in front of us,” he said in portions of the tape broadcast by Al-Jazeera television. “Like they attack us everywhere, we will attack them everywhere.”
That should give the World War III derniers something to think about. It also gives the Moonbats fuel for their “it’s Bush’s fault” mantra, but who cares. They’ll take that tripe to their collective graves.
Jay at Stop the ACLU noticed an improvement in the quality of this latest al-Zawahri screed:
I just saw part of the video on CNN. A few things to note is the quality improvement of the video. It seems a lot more polished than past videos and it seems he is reading from a prompter. Experts are reviewing it and many think it is a call for attacks or to prepare for some. The images behind him are a change from the usually plain background. It was also noted that his weapon was not beside him like past videos. The man in the left background is the a commander who actually planned 9/11 and was killed in Afghanistan. The man in the right background is unknown. It is being studied on whether he is another jihadist that they consider a martyr or a possible future “martyr.”
The video is available here if you care to view and judge for yourself.
I have long believed Osama has been squirreled away in Iran vice the conventional wisdom that says his location is the Pakistani/Afghan border region. If I’m right maybe the quality of this tape indicates al-Zawahri has joined him at a jihadist version of Motel 8 in Tehran.
Regardless, I tend to side with Kim Priestap, “Jihad shmihad. It’s destroy Israel and America all the time. Zawahiri is such a bore.”
