Where is the video from peaceful Muslims explaining that Al-Zawahri has this all wrong? Where is the outrage, such as we saw against Rushdie, the Pope, the cartoonists?
From Associated Press:
CAIRO, Egypt — Al-Qaeda’s No. 2 has issued a new video tape calling on Muslims to unite in jihad, or holy war, and support the Islamist movement in Iraq, a U.S.-based intelligence monitoring group said Wednesday.
Ayman al-Zawahri is seen in the one-hour and 35 minutes tape dressed in white and addressing topics from Iraq to Saudi Arabia, the Palestinian territories and Egypt, said the U.S.-based SITE intelligence group, which monitors al-Qaeda messages.
The group said it had obtained the tape ahead of its release on the Internet by militant web sites, and issued a transcript of al-Zawahri’s remarks. The authenticity of the transcript could not be immediately verified.
In the tape, al-Zawahri encouraged Iraqis and Muslims in general to show greater support for the Islamic State of Iraq, an al-Qaeda insurgent front in the country, even though it lacks “necessary qualifications”, the SITE group quoted al-Zawahri as saying.
