Doctor Ayman al-Zawahiri Ends the Legend of al-Qaeda
By SITE Institute
August 12, 2005

A deep analysis by the Global Islamic Media Front, an al-Qaeda mouthpiece, of Dr. Ayman al-Zawahiri?s speech aired on al-Jazeera Channel on August 4, 2005, has recently been disseminated across several al-Qaeda affiliated forums. The analysis, titled: ?Our Medical Doctor Ayman al-Zawahiri… Ends the Legend of al-Qaeda,? finds that Zawahiri has issued the ?last legal call? to the West to completely withdraw from Muslim lands before al-Qaeda initiates ?its upcoming big operation;? an operation that will end the ?old era? of al-Qaeda, and propel the organization into a new phase with a ?different method and through stronger struggle.?

The author notes the West?s reference to Zawahiri as the ?Face of Death,? due to the events following his words, or a ?prophet of war,? but concludes that Zawahiri, in the context of al-Qaeda?s role in history, is a ?historian.? His speeches detail the harm allegedly wrought against Muslims, and provide commentary on world affairs and the ?transformation of the Western world? which at the same time, tells the stages that al-Qaeda has underwent as it evolved in its ?struggle with the infidel aggressors.? The latest speech is deemed the ?final speech of a struggle of a part,? seeking to crystallize the struggle between the Islamic nation and those that ?protect the cross.?

Further, the latest speech with its included ?impossible requirements,? was understood to go unheeded by Western leaders. The author believes it to be an ?exit card,? by which al-Qaeda ?plays against the infidelity of the world? and causes the ?breakup of the big cross that was threatening the whole world and specifically the Muslim world.? The message will make the ?masks? fall, and following the destruction of America, will render Western nations as destroyed fortifications as the ?revolutionary Muslim masses… are liberated.?

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