Al-Qaida’s number two man, Ayman al-Zawahiri, called for all Muslims to:
“rise up in a holy war against Israel and join the fighting in Lebanon and Gaza until Islam reigns from “Spain to Iraq.”
For any of the “fence sitters” who are still undecided about the current US Administration’s foreign policy that resulted from the atrocity committed by Islamofacists on 9/11, al-Zawahiri recent video should serve as reminder of the mindset that is arrayed against the US and its allies.
The intolerant religionists of al-Qaida, al-Hamas, al-Hezbollah and other like minded groups, are fighting for Islamic supremacy not only in the Middle East, but also in Europe as well. Spain, in the eyes of the Islamists, is seen as a part of the Islamic world. Hamas schools its children to believe that Spain, (Andalusia) should be once again under Islamic rule.
This recent demand by al-Qaida’s second in command should be seen in the light of what the terrorist states of Iran and Syria are trying to achieve in south Lebanon. Regardless of Baa’tist Syria’s secular credentials, it still believes that it can manage Islamist terrorism to its own advantage, in much the same way as did Iraq’s over thrown dictator, Saddam Hussein. Any which way you look at it, leaving S.Lebanon in the hands of Hezbollah and its allies would be dangerous for all. KGS
