Commentary on Zawahiri's Message Emphasizes Palestinian Cause and Strikes Against Zionists
By SITE Institute
August 5, 2005



A reaction to Ayman Zawahiri's video message posted to an al-Qaeda affiliated message board reiterates and underscores Zawahiri's August 4, 2005 video message. Both messages pinpoint Palestine as a critical locus for the jihadist movement. The author of the online commentary proclaims that Abbas "sold his religion and his honor", and thus his political legitimacy, for the "cursed cheap position" as head of the Palestinian Liberation Organization. Therefore the Palestinian mujahideen should heed Zarqawi's entreaties to shun political participation.

The commentary finishes by lauding the London bombings and calling for al-Qaeda to expedite their next operation, directing them "to cut the tongues of those who say that al-Qaeda does not target the Zionists"

A translation of the message is provided to our Intel Service members.
