Ayman al-Zawahiri, al Qaeda leader, calls for holy war against the US

Ayman al-Zawahiri, the leader of al Qaeda since Osama bin Laden’s assassination, called for a holy war against the United States and Israel Saturday over the anti-Muslim video that triggered protests throughout the Middle East last month.

In the seven-minute audio, Mr Zawahiri hailed “the honourable people … who stormed the US embassy in Benghazi and those who protested outside the US mission in Cairo where they replaced the US flag with that of Islam and jihad.”

In the audio released by media arm As-Sahab and posted on militant websites¬† Saturday, the al Qaeda leader called on protesters “to continue to counter the US-Crusader-Zionist attack on Islam and Muslims and urge other Muslims to follow suit.”

Zawahiri condemned the U.S. “whose laws allow attacks on the Muslim prophet and their holy book (the Koran), in the name of freedom of expression, while charging those who attack Jews with anti-Semitism.”

“This freedom did not prevent them from torturing Muslim prisoners.”
