al-Qaeda’s number two leader Ayman al-Zawahiri has admitted publicly that al-Qaeda is at war with Islam and has no regrets for all the Muslims the group has been killing, torturing and maiming:
Al-Qaeda’s deputy leader Ayman al- Zawahiri defended insurgent attacks in Iraq, Algeria and Morocco that killed Muslims and blamed the West for using them as human shields, according to a U.S.-based intelligence group.
Zawahiri was responding to questions posed to him over the Internet after announcing the online interview in December, according to IntelCenter, based in Alexandria, Virginia.
“If there was any innocent who was killed in the Mujahedeen’s operations, then it was either an unintentional error, or out of necessity,” Zawahiri said in the 103-minute audio file released today by al-Qaeda’s media production unit, as-Sahab. “We don’t kill innocents, in fact, we fight those who kill innocents.”
While the western media may be duped into buying this BS, the Muslims who have lived through the atrocities of al-Qaeda are surely of a different mind, and now have been put on notice that they are nothing but useless pawns to al-Qaeda’s desires for world domination. Let’s recap a few of the atrocities Zawahiri thinks are justified.
I would ask Zawahiri how do innocents get carved up in al-Qaeda torture rooms?
Blood-splotches on walls, chains hanging from a ceiling and swords on the killing floor â€” the artifacts left a disturbing tale of brutalities inside a suspected al Qaeda in Iraq torture chamber. But there was yet another chilling fact outside the dirt-floor dungeon. Villagers say they knew about the torment but were too intimidated by extremists to tell authorities until now.
Scrawled in white paint above a bed in the torture area was a Quranic phrase in Arabic normally used to welcome a guest. But the context suggested only sadistic mockery: â€œCome in, you are safe.â€
Clearly Zawahiri must know that the targeting of Sunni Muslim leaders and security patrols is not because they were accidental collateral damage from attacks on Americans. Yet he lies to the families and clans who they attacked saying these Muslims deserved to die? And how is al-Qaeda on a holy war when it kills defenseless women and children and dumps them in mass graves?
Remains of possibly dozens of people believed killed in sectarian violence have been unearthed from a mass grave in a former al-Qaeda stronghold in southern Baghdad.
It was the third such find in Iraq this month.
The remains included those of women and children.
Mass graves are all over Iraq, the product of Zawahiri’s and Bin Laden’s madness. Maybe he can explain how 20 students found in a mass grave was an act for the good of Allah and not the act of vicious animals? How many mass graves filled with women and children will appease these thugs? How many suicide bombs against local Muslims will appease the blood lust of al-Qaeda?
Attackers killed a prominent member of an Iraqi tribe that had taken a stand against Al Qaeda in Mesopotamia, and in other violence today more than 53 people were killed in gunfire and bomb attacks.
Among the attacks were two suicide bombs in the northern city of Tal Afar and the murder of two elderly Chaldean nuns in Kirkuk.
Insurgents with two chlorine truck bombs attacked a local government building in Fallujah, western Iraq, on Wednesday and 15 Iraqi and United States security forces were injured, the US military said.
The best example of al-Qaeda’s holy war I saw was back when “The Awakening” took root, and it was no surprise why Iraqi Muslims had decided to take the dramatic move and turn on their one time allies:
â€œAQI is both feared and hated,â€ Capt Broekhuizen said, referring to Al Qaeda in Iraq. â€œTheyâ€™ve been running a brutal terror campaign. No city leaders are left here who will take a leadership role.â€ Marines from Golf Company said they recently fished two bodies out of the local river: a man had been decapitated, and his 4-year old tied to his leg before both were thrown into the river and the little boy drowned. The killings were a product of Al Qaeda terror.
There are thousands of stories about al-Qaeda’s sick brutality against Muslims in Iraq and elsewhere. They don’t get play here in the West, but they are etched into the psyche of Muslims who have had a taste of al-Qaeda close up. Zawahiri can try and defend these acts as necessary, but he is kidding no one. Oppression is only necessary to those who plan to enslave people for their own purposes. Zawahiri has put Islam on notice: al-Qaeda is at war with Islam until it bows to down to them. And they will inflict any kind of atrocity they can dream up to ensure Islam is enslaved to their sick wishes. Hitler had nothing on these animals.
