A member of an al-Qaeda affiliated forum posted a message yesterday, August 17, 2005, titled: ?Zarqawi Performs a Suicidal Operation; Allah is Great,? which sarcastically ascribes all that al-Qaeda in Iraq executes, including suicide bombings, planting mines, and detonating explosives, to Sheikh Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, mimicking what he believes is the reporting of al-Jazeera Channel. The author?s prominent point of contention is that he believes that al-Jazeera ignores the mujahideen of Iraq, for without them, Zarqawi ?would not be able to do anything.?
Further, the message indicates that the ?American masters? may be benefiting most from this new coverage, as it allegedly shows the al-Qaeda Organization to be finished, and ?the skinny al-Qaeda is something an al-Zarqawi (Superman) is something else.?
