Al Zawahiri calls on Muslims to kidnap Westerners

Al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri has called on Egyptians to restart their revolution to ensure Egypt implements Islamic law ( sharia ) and urged on Muslims to kidnap Westerners and to join the uprising against President Bashar al-Assad in Syria, the SITE Intelligence Group said Friday.

"We are seeking, by the help of Allah, to capture others and to incite Muslims to capture the citizens of the countries that are fighting Muslims in order to release our captives," said al-Zawahiri, referring to the kidnapping of Warren Weinstein, a 71-year-old American aid worker in Pakistan, last year, according to Reuters .

In a 58-minute video released on jihadist forums and translated by the SITE Intelligence Group , Zawahiri criticizing the new Egyptian president drawn from the Muslim Brotherhood and asked him to clarify his position on relations with the Palestinians and "the jihad to liberate Palestine." also Zawahiri called for mass demonstrations "against the Israeli embassy and against normalization and the peace treaty with Israel, and against the Israeli occupation of the land of Palestine, and against any concession and surrender to it, and against every siege in Gaza." according to an AFP report

"The battle isn't over, but it has started, The revolution in Egypt must continue and the Muslim Ummah must offer sacrifices until it achieves what it wants and until it snatches from the corrupt forces . the dignity and honor of Egypt," al-Zawahiri said, according to an AFP report.

The Egyptian doctor Zawahiri, the former deputy to slain al Qaeda leader who became the leader Osama Bin Laden after Osama bin Laden was killed by US troops last year also directly challenged US President Barack Obama, calling him a "professional liar."

"Obama must admit he and his allies are standing in the defeated line, and that Osama bin Laden, may Allah have mercy on him, and the rest of the Mujahedeen and the Muslim Ummah are standing in the victorious line, whether anyone likes it or not," he said.

Zawahiri accused world powers as United Nations nd Arab League of giving Syrian President Assad "a licence to kill" his opponents in its attempt to curb the opposition forces. The Syrian rebels include several pro-Palestine Islamist groups.

"I incite Muslims everywhere, especially in the countries that are contiguous to Syria, to rise to support their brothers in Syria with all what they can and not to spare anything that they can offer," he said, according to a Reuters report.

My Opinion

When Zawahiri requests the Muslim to kidnap the Westerners and kill them did his Islam ask him to do so .? did he want to do as Bashar el Assad who gave his soildersa licences to kill his opposition ?Now Al Assad is described as dictator and terrorist . can we say that Zawahiri is a terrorist also ,?

He wants the Egyptian to hlep the syrians in this rebel against Bashar Al Assad . that does not work , the Syrian have to do it themseleve becasue the Egyptians didn't ask anyone to help them , the Libyan did their rebel with the help of NATO becasue there was no balance of power between Gaddafi and the rebeles who didin't have any weapons .

Now, the Syrian are equipped with weapons from Saudi Arabia ,Qater and France Obama doesn't want to provide Syria with weapons , he is scared that , these weapons might affect Israel and other neigboring Arab countries .

This Cleric is getting old he is hallucinating when he asks Mursi , the Egyptian president to disamantle Camp David accord , beacsue Egypt respect all international treatments and accords they did with other cauntries , Infact we are not living alone is this world , we must respect our neighbours and not to interfere in other states affaris , Egypt has enough problems .

Zawahiri al Qaeda leader is irrresposible he doesn't know what he says or what he does . he couldn't be leader or a president to any country as he dreams to rule all the Islamic states, does he want to make it another Crusade ?
