al-Zawahiri Incites Jihad
[the revival] of a global, pan-Islamic caliphate.
Much of the video is taken up with outspoken attacks against what Zawahiri depicts as the corrupt and repressive governments of Saudi Arabia and Egypt.
The video outlines elements of al-Qaeda's strategy.
The short-term aim, says Zawahiri, is to attack the interests of the "Crusaders and Jews" (the United States, its Western allies and Israel).
The long-term aim is to topple what he calls corrupt Muslim regimes - and to use Afghanistan, Iraq and Somalia as training grounds for militants.
Sheesh! Add the letter "D" after this guy's name and the MoveOn/KoS Crowd would run him as their endorsed candidate for U.S. Senate!
