From AP, :
CAIRO, Egypt — An online Al Qaeda magazine is urging Sunni Muslim fighters in Iraq to join hands with Usama bin Laden to defeat its enemies.
“We are urging all the leaders of Sunni holy warriors to fight for God’s word to prevail over that of the infidels, to join hands with the leader of Islam’s soldiers today, Usama bin Laden,” said an editorial in the bimonthly Al Qaeda military publication Al-Battar Camp.
It said bin Laden would bring “victory [over] infidels from the atheist Crusaders.”
Atheist Crusaders. Hmm. So they are finally noticing that the West is no longer Christian.
Al-Battar, Arabic for “sharp sword,” is a slick Web magazine featuring a table of contents and op-ed page and a letters to the editor section.
The leaders of Sunni Muslim fighters in Iraq “should follow the lead of holy warrior leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, may God keep him, who initiated this good precedent, may God reward him,” the magazine said.
