Al Qaeda Leader Threatens London.

The Independent is reporting that Aymen Zawahiri, largely thought of as Osama bin Laden’s mentor, is threatening more terrorist attacks on London, and says that British Prime Minister Tony Blair is to blame. In a broadcast on al-Jazeera, Zawahiri said of the British Prime Minister that “Blair has brought to you destruction in central London, and he will bring more of that, God willing.” Zawahiri continued saying “As to the nations of the crusader alliance, we have offered you a truce if you leave the land of Islam. Hasn't Sheik Osama bin Laden told you that you will not dream of security before there is security in Palestine and before all the infidel armies withdraw from the land of Muhammed? Instead, you spilled blood like rivers in our countries and we exploded the volcanoes of wrath in your countries.” Zawahiri concluded saying, “Our message is clear: you will not be safe until you withdraw from our land, stop stealing our oil and wealth and stop supporting the corrupt rulers”.

Well there you have it. Time to give up. We've been threatened by video...again. It never ceases to amaze me how all of a sudden we are supposed to give a crap what this or other clowns threaten to do.

Regardless of what some people think, there are some problems that a well-placed .308 round can handle quite effectively.

Miami,
Like I said, just reporting the news. I personally would have no problem with a well place .308 round targeted at Zawarihi. His list of terrorist crimes date back to the assassination of Egyptian President Sadat back in 1979. But as a religious philosopher, as well as a medical doctor, Zawarihi's words, unfortunately, is quite influential in the Islamic world. For that reason, it is worth it to take the time to see what he is saying.

The fact that anyone gives him any airtime is ludicrous. His influence is only multiplied by how his stupid threats are broadcast throughout the media. I don't seriously think that most Muslims see him as a "religious philosopher" or "medical doctor".

He is nothing more than a coward. For what it's worth Saddam had bigger nads than this punk ever will. He would at least address his people in public.

Miami,
I have noticed that when anyone from the al Qaeda camp speaks, the press will never quote them, short of a phrase or two. The rest of the media on the planet will fully broadcast every word, just as they will broadcast every word from Bush. The reason is the rest of the world’s media isn’t so highly controlled and censored as it is in the US.

I don’t know how the rest of the Muslim world sees Zawarihi, but he is the major philosopher promoting the concept of “Jacaylah”, originally developed fellow Egyptian Sayed Kotb in the 1950’s (Jacaylah is a belief that Western consumerism leads people to a life of apathy and corruption). This belief is very powerful to young Muslim males, especially in the poorer nations, and is a philosophical root to modern day terrorism. But for the record, he REALLY is a medical doctor. He came from a wealthy Egyptian family and even practiced medicine, and speaks perfect English. He had to stop after he was jailed in Egypt for having taken part in the Sadat assassination.

====>They do the same with every speaker of a group. They never broadcast more than a snipet of what they said.

=====>We don't censor our press. It's the reason why Newsweek can print false stories that incite riots around the world, CBS can run stories based on forged documents, and Michael Moore can make money on half-truths.

====>To be exact he is a Pediatrician. But the fact that you want to give him the status of philosopher is an eroneous one. My assertion is that if that is the case then you and I are as much philosophers as he is. The only difference is that I would defend your right to spew nonsense against anyone who trieds to silence you whereas he promotes the ideas of killing people like yourself who he feels is the root of all evil, American.
