Al Qaeda leader threatens: ‘The U.S. doesn’t know what’s coming its way.’

(BROOKINGS INSTITUTE via NEWSWEEK) — After an unprecedented 11 months of silence, Ayman al-Zawahiri, the emir of Al Qaeda, this week issued a video message proclaiming his loyalty to the new head of the Afghan Taliban, Mullah Akhtar Mansoor. The almost 10-minute long message dramatically reaffirms the alliance between Al Qaeda and the Taliban, a setback for efforts to bring the Taliban into a political process.

The video was released by Al Qaeda’s media arm As-Sahab, meaning “in the clouds” or an allusion to the jihadi symbolism that Al Qaeda operates in the mountains of the Hindu Kush.

According to the Pakistan newspaper Dawn, As-Sahab recently relocated its real ground game from Pakistan (where it has been operating since 2002) back to Afghanistan in Helmand province. The Afghan Taliban supported the move and provides safe haven for Al Qaeda, which means 14 years after Operation Enduring Freedom began, Al Qaeda is again running operations out of Afghanistan.

Al-Zawahri’s message underscores that Al Qaeda remains close to the Taliban. According to Dawn, a senior As-Sahab official, Qari Abu Bakr, said “the bond between us and our Taliban brothers is a solid ideological bond. The Taliban opted to lose their government and family members just to protect us. There is no question of us moving apart now after going through this war together.” In a warning to the United States, he says, “Our common enemy does not know what is coming its way.”

In his new message, al-Zawahri eulogizes Mullah Mohammad Omar, the founder of the Taliban, as a hero of the global jihad along with Osama bin Laden and Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. Mullah Omar is lauded by al-Zawahri for creating the first true Islamic emirate since the fall of the Ottoman Empire a century ago. He makes no mention of reports Mullah Omar died two years ago in a Pakistan hospital in Karachi under the protection of the Pakistani intelligence service, the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI).

The Koran: The terrorist manifesto

By Pete Parker/CLASH DAILY — There is no doubt that Islam’s so-called holy book (the Koran) is the quintessential Terrorist Manifesto. Its pages are littered with barbaric and odious passages demanding the violent demise of all things non-Muslim.

Even a cursory view of this treacherous tome will leave one with the sense that Islam is a psychotic ideology spawned in the bowels of hell. Its misogynistic and anti-Christian/ Semitic screeds have created untold mayhem and misery for millions.

Terrorist organization such as ISIS, al Qaeda, Hezbollah, Hamas, Boko Haram and Islamic Jihad use the Koran as a playbook to determine each and every bloody advance.

THIS IS WORTH READING TO THE VERY END.

Muhammad fled from Mecca to Yathrib (Medina) in A.D. 622 after the Meccans decided they had to kill him to preserve their way of life. In Yathrib, he built a mosque and used it as his al-qaeda—his base—to wage war on the Meccans and then on people who refused to accept him and his religion. He carried out at least 80 raids on caravans, towns, villages, and Bedouin encampments, killing, plundering, and enslaving until his death in A.D. 632. He was famous for his chilling battle cry, “Kill! Kill! Kill!” The following is excerpted from It’s All About Muhammad, A Biography of the World’s Most Notorious Prophet.

IMAGINE THE SCENE AT MUHAMMAD’S mosque on the eve of a raid:

Muhammad is sitting in the pulpit of the preacher platform. He is angry and shakes his fist at the crowds in the prayer area and courtyard. Fighting in the cause of Allah is an obligation for Submitters, he tells them, but many of the faithful are resisting going to war and have been coming to him with excuses. He reminds them of their duty by reciting one of his Koran verses: “Fighting is enjoined on you, and it is an object of dislike to you; and it may be that you dislike a thing while it is good for you, and it may be that you love a thing while it is evil for you, and Allah knows, while you do not know.”[1] Read more »
